Are There Really Neutrinos?: An Evidential History

2nd Edition

Allan D. Franklin, Alysia D. Marino
February 28, 2020

This intriguing and accessible book examines the experiments on neutrino oscillations. It argues that this history gives us good reason to believe in the existence of neutrinos, a particle that interacts so weakly with matter that its interaction length is measured in light years of lead. Yet, the...

High-Energy Ecologically Safe HF/DF Lasers: Physics of Self-Initiated Volume Discharge-Based HF/DF Lasers

1st Edition

Victor V. Apollonov, Sergey Yu. Kazantsev
February 28, 2020

This book explores new principles of Self-Initiating Volume Discharge for creating high-energy non-chain HF(DF) lasers, as well as the creation of highly efficient lasers with output energy and radiation power in the spectral region of 2.6–5 μm. Today, sources of high-power lasing in this spectral...

Exploring Life Phenomena with Statistical Mechanics of Molecular Liquids

1st Edition

Fumio Hirata
February 14, 2020

In a living body, a variety of molecules are working in a concerted manner to maintain its life, and to carry forward the genetic information from generation to generation. A key word to understand such processes is "water," which plays an essential role in life phenomena. This book sheds light on...

Untangling Complex Systems: A Grand Challenge for Science

1st Edition

Pier Luigi Gentili
January 30, 2020

Complex Systems are natural systems that science is unable to describe exhaustively. Examples of Complex Systems are both unicellular and multicellular living beings; human brains; human immune systems; ecosystems; human societies; the global economy; the climate and geology of our planet. This...

Theoretical Spectroscopy of Transition Metal and Rare Earth Ions: From Free State to Crystal Field

1st Edition

Mikhail G. Brik, Ma Chong-Geng
January 24, 2020

This book describes in detail the main concepts of theoretical spectroscopy of transition metal and rare-earth ions. It shows how the energy levels of different electron configurations are formed and calculated for the ions in a free state and in crystals, how group theory can help in solving main...

Aquaporins in Health and Disease: New Molecular Targets for Drug Discovery

1st Edition

Graca Soveral, Soren Nielsen, Angela Casini
January 14, 2020

Since the discovery of Aquaporin-1 (AQP1) as a water channel, many studies have revealed the importance of aquaporins in mammalian physiology and pathophysiology as well as plant and microbial biology. The studies have also shown aquaporins as potential drug targets and targets for improving crop...

Christopher K. Walker
January 14, 2020

A Powerful Window into Cosmic Evolution Terahertz (THz) observations of interstellar atoms, molecules, and dust serve as powerful probes of the conditions within the interstellar medium that permeates our galaxy, providing insights into the origins of stars, planets, galaxies, and the Universe....

Image-Guided Hypofractionated Stereotactic Radiosurgery: A Practical Approach to Guide Treatment of Brain and Spine Tumors

1st Edition

Arjun Sahgal, Simon S. Lo, Lijun Ma, Jason P. Sheehan
January 14, 2020

The recent development of hypofractionated stereotactic radiation therapy (SRT), which calls for one to five fractions of high-dose radiation to be administered using special equipment, has resulted in the need for education on practice guidelines. Image-Guided Hypofractionated Stereotactic...
