BOOK SERIES


Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation


About the Series

This series covers all aspects of theoretical and experimental high energy physics, cosmology, and gravitation and the interface between them. In recent years, the fields of particle physics and astrophysics have become increasingly interdependent. The aim of this series is to provide a library of books to meet the needs of students and researchers in these fields.

If you are interested in writing or editing a book for the series, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact Rebecca Davies, Editor for Physics books, at [email protected] or contact one of the Series Editors: Brian Foster at [email protected] or Edward W. Kolb at [email protected] Proposal guidelines can be accessed at http://www.crcpress.com/resources/authors.

The Standard Model and Beyond

The Standard Model and Beyond

2nd Edition

Paul Langacker
July 06, 2017

This new edition of The Standard Model and Beyond presents an advanced introduction to the physics and formalism of the standard model and other non-abelian gauge theories. It provides a solid background for understanding supersymmetry, string theory, extra dimensions, dynamical symmetry breaking,...

An Introduction to Beam Physics

An Introduction to Beam Physics

1st Edition

Martin Berz, Kyoko Makino, Weishi Wan
October 19, 2016

The field of beam physics touches many areas of physics, engineering, and the sciences. In general terms, beams describe ensembles of particles with initial conditions similar enough to be treated together as a group so that the motion is a weakly nonlinear perturbation of a chosen reference...

Neutrino Physics

Neutrino Physics

2nd Edition

Kai Zuber
August 03, 2011

When Kai Zuber’s pioneering text on neutrinos was published in 2003, the author correctly predicted that the field would see tremendous growth in the immediate future. In that book, Professor Zuber provided a comprehensive self-contained examination of neutrinos, covering their research history and...

Group Theory for the Standard Model of Particle Physics and Beyond

Group Theory for the Standard Model of Particle Physics and Beyond

1st Edition

Ken J. Barnes
March 10, 2010

Based on the author’s well-established courses, Group Theory for the Standard Model of Particle Physics and Beyond explores the use of symmetries through descriptions of the techniques of Lie groups and Lie algebras. The text develops the models, theoretical framework, and mathematical tools to...

Gravitation: From the Hubble Length to the Planck Length

Gravitation: From the Hubble Length to the Planck Length

1st Edition

I. Ciufolini, E. Coccia, V. Gorini, N. Vittorio, R. Peron
October 31, 2004

Although gravity is the dominant force of nature at large distances (from intermediate scales to the Hubble length), it is the weakest of forces in particle physics, though it is believed to become important again at very short scales (the Planck length). The conditions created in particle...

The Mathematical Theory of Cosmic Strings: Cosmic Strings in the Wire Approximation

The Mathematical Theory of Cosmic Strings: Cosmic Strings in the Wire Approximation

1st Edition

M.R. Anderson
November 18, 2002

This book is a comprehensive survey of the current state of knowledge about the dynamics and gravitational properties of cosmic strings treated in the idealized classical approximation as line singularities described by the Nambu-Goto action. The author's purpose is to provide a standard reference...

Geometry and Physics of Branes

Geometry and Physics of Branes

1st Edition

U Bruzzo, V. Gorini, U. Moschella
November 05, 2002

Branes are solitonic configurations of a string theory that are represented by extended objects in a higher-dimensional space-time. They are essential for a comprehension of the non-perturbative aspects of string theory, in particular, in connection with string dualities. From the mathematical...

Modern Cosmology

Modern Cosmology

1st Edition

S Bonometto, V. Gorini, U. Moschella
December 01, 2001

Cosmology is a relatively new science, but cosmological questions are as old as mankind. Turning philosophical and metaphysical problems into problems that physics can treat, and hopefully solve, has been an achievement of the twentieth century. Modern Cosmology brings together contributions from a...

Gravitation and Gauge Symmetries

Gravitation and Gauge Symmetries

1st Edition

M Blagojevic
October 25, 2001

In the course of the development of electromagnetic, weak and strong interactions, the concept of (internal) gauge invariance grew up and established itself as an unavoidable dynamical principle in particle physics. It is less known that the principle of equivalence, and the basic dynamical...

Pulsars as Astrophysical Laboratories for Nuclear and Particle Physics

Pulsars as Astrophysical Laboratories for Nuclear and Particle Physics

1st Edition

Fridolin Weber
May 01, 1999

Pulsars, generally accepted to be rotating neutron stars, are dense, neutron-packed remnants of massive stars that blew apart in supernova explosions. They are typically about 10 kilometers across and spin rapidly, often making several hundred rotations per second. Depending on star mass, gravity...

The World in Eleven Dimensions: Supergravity, supermembranes and M-theory

The World in Eleven Dimensions: Supergravity, supermembranes and M-theory

1st Edition

M.J Duff
January 01, 1999

A unified theory embracing all physical phenomena is a major goal of theoretical physics. In the early 1980s, many physicists looked to eleven-dimensional supergravity in the hope that it might provide that elusive superunified theory. In 1984 supergravity was knocked off its pedestal by...

Introduction to Supersymmetric Field Theory

Introduction to Supersymmetric Field Theory

1st Edition

Sergio M. Kuzenko
January 01, 1998

Ideas and Methods of Supersymmetry and Supergravity: Or a Walk Through Superspace provides a comprehensive, detailed, and self-contained account of four dimensional simple supersymmetry and supergravity. Throughout the book, the authors cultivate their material in detail with calculations and full...
