In this volume the physics involved in various astrophysical processes like the synthesis of light and heavier elements, explosive burning processes, core collapse supernova etc have been critically addressed with minimum mathematical derivations so as to suit all faculties of the readers. For...

Supersymmetry Beyond Minimality: From Theory to Experiment

Shaaban Khalil, Stefano Moretti
December 18, 2017

Supersymmetry (SUSY) is one of the most important ideas ever conceived in particle physics. It is a symmetry that relates known elementary particles of a certain spin to as yet undiscovered particles that differ by half a unit of that spin (known as Superparticles). Supersymmetric models now stand...

Introduction to Nuclear Reactor Physics

Robert E. Masterson
December 13, 2017

INTRODUCTION TO NUCLEAR REACTOR PHYSICS is the most comprehensive, modern and readable textbook for this course/module. It explains reactors, fuel cycles, radioisotopes, radioactive materials, design, and operation. Chain reaction and fission reactor concepts are presented, plus advanced coverage...

The Weak Interaction in Nuclear, Particle and Astrophysics

K. Grotz
December 08, 2017

The Weak Interaction in Nuclear, Particle and Astrophysics presents concepts of the weak interaction and its integration into modern gauge theories of particle physics, such as grand unification and supersymmetry. The book explores the close connections between micro (nuclear and particle) physics...

Intermediate-Energy Nuclear Physics

A.S. Iljinov
November 29, 2017

Intermediate-Energy Nuclear Physics is devoted to discussing the interaction between hadrons with nuclei, which leads to the emission of particles during an intranuclear cascade and subsequent decay of a highly excited residual nucleus. Experimental data and the methods and results of the...

November 16, 2017

The development of graphene-related nanomaterials and nanocomposite has shown immense utility in the areas of science, engineering, and technology. These materials include graphene derivatives, graphene-supported inorganic nanomaterials and films, graphene-metal decorated nanostructures, core–shell...

An Introduction to Gauge Theories

Nicola Cabibbo, Luciano Maiani, Omar Benhar
July 11, 2017

Written by world-leading experts in particle physics, this new book from Luciano Maiani and Omar Benhar, with contributions from the late Nicola Cabibbo, is based on Feynman’s path integrals. Key elements of gauge theories are described—Feynman diagrams, gauge-fixing, Faddeev-Popov ghosts—as well...

The Standard Model and Beyond, Second 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.
