Title  From Newton to Mandelbrot : A Primer in Theoretical Physics 
Author(s)  Stauffer, Dietrich;Stanley, H. Eugene;Lesne, Annick 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2017. 
Description  XIV, 270 p. 84 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook takes the reader on a tour of the most important landmarks of theoretical physics: classical, quantum, and statistical mechanics, relativity, electrodynamics, as well as the most modern and exciting of all: elementary particles and the physics of fractals. The second edition has been supplemented with a new chapter devoted to concise though complete presentation of dynamical systems, bifurcations and chaos theory. The treatment is confined to the essentials of each area, presenting all the central concepts and equations at an accessible level. Chapters 1 to 4 contain the standard material of courses in theoretical physics and are supposed to accompany lectures at the university; thus they are rather condensed. They are supposed to fill one year of teaching. Chapters 5 and 6, in contrast, are written less condensed since this material may not be part of standard lectures and thus could be studied without the help of a university teacher. An appendix on elementary particles lies somewhere in between: It could be a summary of a much more detailed course, or studied without such a course. Illustrations and numerous problems round off this unusual textbook. It will ideally accompany the students all along their course in theoretical physics and prove indispensable in preparing and revising the exams. It is also suited as a reference for teachers or scientists from other disciplines who are interested in the topic

Title  Geometrodynamics of Gauge Fields : On the Geometry of YangMills and Gravitational Gauge Theories 
Author(s)  Mielke, Eckehard W 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVII, 373 p. 18 illus., 8 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This monograph aims to provide a unified, geometrical foundation of gauge theories of elementary particle physics. The underlying geometrical structure is unfolded in a coordinatefree manner via the modern mathematical notions of fibre bundles and exterior forms. Topics such as the dynamics of YangMills theories, instanton solutions and topological invariants are included. By transferring these concepts to local spacetime symmetries, generalizations of Einstein's theory of gravity arise in a RiemannCartan space with curvature and torsion. It provides the framework in which the (broken) Poincar?? gauge theory, the Rainich geometrization of the EinsteinMaxwell system, and higherdimensional, nonabelian KaluzaKlein theories are developed. Since the discovery of the Higgs boson, concepts of spontaneous symmetry breaking in gravity have come again into focus, and, in this revised edition, these will be exposed in geometric terms. Quantizing gravity remains an open issue: formulating it as a de Sitter type gauge theory in the spirit of YangMills, some new progress in its topological form is presented. After symmetry breaking, Einstein???s standard general relativity with cosmological constant emerges as a classical background. The geometrical structure of BRST quantization with nonpropagating topological ghosts is developed in some detail

Title  Heavy WIMP Effective Theory : Formalism and Applications for Scattering on Nucleon Targets 
Author(s)  Solon, Mikhail P 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XV, 177 p. 26 illus., 12 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is about dark matter???s particle nature and the implications of a new symmetry that appears when a hypothetical dark matter particle is heavy compared to known elementary particles. Dark matter exists and composes about 85% of the matter in the universe, but it cannot be explained in terms of the known elementary particles. Discovering dark matter's particle nature is one of the most pressing open problems in particle physics. This thesis derives the implications of a new symmetry that appears when the hypothetical dark matter particle is heavy compared to the known elementary particles, a situation which is well motivated by the null results of searches at the LHC and elsewhere. The new symmetry predicts a universal interaction between dark matter and ordinary matter, which in turn may be used to determine the event rate and detectable energy in dark matter direct detection experiments. The computation of heavy wino and higgsino dark matter presented in this work has become a benchmark for the field of direct detection. This thesis has also spawned a new field of investigation in dark matter indirect detection, determining heavy WIMP annihilation rates using effective field theory methods. It describes a new formalism for implementing Lorentz invariance constraints in nonrelativistic theories, with a surprising result at 1/M^4 order that contradicts the prevailing ansatz in the past 20 years of heavy quark literature. The author has also derived new perturbative QCD results to provide the definitive analysis of key Standard Model observables such as heavy quark scalar matrix elements of the nucleon. ??This is an influential thesis, with impacts in dark matter phenomenology, field theory formalism and precision hadronic physics

Title  Gauge Invariance and Weylpolymer Quantization 
Author(s)  Strocchi, Franco 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  X, 97 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book gives an introduction to Weyl nonregular quantization suitable for the description of physically interesting quantum systems, where the traditional DiracHeisenberg quantization is not applicable.?? The latter implicitly assumes that the canonical variables describe observables, entailing necessarily the regularity of their exponentials (Weyl operators). However, in physically interesting cases  typically in the presence of a gauge symmetry  nonobservable canonical variables are introduced for the description of the states, namely of the relevant representations of the observable algebra. In general, a gauge invariant ground state defines a nonregular representation of the gauge dependent Weyl operators, providing a mathematically consistent treatment of familiar quantum systems  such as the electron in a periodic potential (Bloch electron), the Quantum Hall electron, or the quantum particle on a circle  where the gauge transformations are, respectively, the lattice translations, the magnetic translations and the rotations of 2??. Relevant examples are also provided by quantum gauge field theory models, in particular by the temporal gauge of Quantum Electrodynamics, avoiding the conflict between the Gauss law constraint and the DiracHeisenberg canonical quantization. The same applies to Quantum Chromodynamics, where the nonregular quantization of the temporal gauge provides a simple solution of the U(1) problem and a simple link between the vacuum structure and the topology of the gauge group. Last but not least, Weyl nonregular quantization is briefly discussed from the perspective of the socalled polymer representations proposed for Loop Quantum Gravity in connection with diffeomorphism invariant vacuum states

Title  Effective Field Theories for Heavy Majorana Neutrinos in a Thermal Bath 
Author(s)  Biondini, Simone 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIII, 215 p. 86 illus., 65 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis discusses the construction of an effective field theory (EFT) for nonrelativistic Majorana fermions, shows how to use it to calculate observables in a thermal medium, and derives the effects of these thermal particles on the CP asymmetry.?? The methods described in this thesis are the only ones to date that allow a systematic and effective description of the nonrelativistic dynamics of a heavy Majorana fermion at finite temperature. The CP asymmetry is studied for hierarchical and nearly degenerate heavyneutrino masses and the analysis includes the treatment of leptonflavor effects.?? Heavy Majorana neutrinos are involved in many scenarios of physics beyond the standard model and, in the leptogenesis framework, they are at the root of the baryon asymmetry in the Universe. Besides simplifying existing results, the EFT approach provides useful tools for addressing even more involved observables. Indeed, taken together, the approach and the material pres ented here represent an important step toward a systematic improvement of our knowledge of the CP asymmetry in heavyneutrino decays at finite temperature

Title  Search for Charginos Nearly MassDegenerate with the Lightest Neutralino : Based on a DisappearingTrack Signature in pp Collisions at ???s = 8 TeV 
Author(s)  Kazama, Shingo 
Publication  Tokyo, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Japan, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 148 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  ??In this book, the anomaly mediated supersymmetry breaking (AMSB) model is explored by searching for charged winos with their subsequent decays collected with the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The author develops a new method, called ???retracking,??? to detect charged winos that decay before reaching the Semiconductor Tracker (SCT) detector. Because the nominal tracking algorithm at the ATLAS experiment requires at least seven successive hits in the inner tracking system, the sensitivity to charged winos having a fraction of a nanosecond in the past analysis was therefore limited. However, retracking requires a minimum of three pixel hits and provides a fully efficient tracking capability for charged winos traversing the pixel detector, resulting in around about 100 times greater efficiency for charged winos with a lifetime ~0.2 ns longer than that in past searches. Signal topology is characterized by a jet with large transverse momentum (pT), large missing transverse energy, and a highpT disappearing track. There are three types of background tracks: interacting hadron trac ks, charged leptons, and tracks with mismeasured pT. A background estimation based on the Monte Carlo (MC) simulation suffers from large uncertainties due to poor statistics and has difficulty simulating the properties of background tracks. Therefore, a datadriven approach has been developed by the author of the book to estimate the background trackpT spectrum. No significant excess above the background expectation is observed for candidate tracks with large transverse momentum, and constraints on the AMSB model are obtained. The author shows that in the AMSB model, a charged wino mass below 270 GeV is excluded at 95 % confidence level, which also directly constrains the mass of wino dark matter

Title  Searching for Dark Matter with the ATLAS Detector 
Author(s)  Schramm, Steven 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XXIII, 324 p. 145 illus., 135 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis describes the search for Dark Matter at the LHC in the monojet plus missing transverse momentum final state, using the full dataset recorded in 2012 by the ATLAS Experiment. It is the first time that the number of jets is not explicitly restricted to one or two, thus increasing the sensitivity to new signals. Instead, a balance between the most energetic jet and the missing transverse momentum is required, thus selecting monojetlike final states. Collider searches for Dark Matter have typically used signal models employing effective field theories (EFTs), even when comparing to results from direct and indirect detection experiments, where the difference in energy scale renders many such comparisons invalid. The thesis features the first robust and comprehensive treatment of the validity of EFTs in collider searches, and provides a means by which the different classifications of Dark Matter experiments can be compared on a sound and fair basis

Title  Concepts in Quantum Field Theory : A Practitioner's Toolkit 
Author(s)  Ilisie, Victor 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 190 p. 25 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book uses less strict yet still formal mathematical language to clarify a variety of concepts in Quantum Field Theory that remain somewhat ???fuzzy??? in many books designed for undergraduates and fresh graduates. The aim is not to replace formal books on Quantum Field Theory, but rather to offer a helpful complementary tool for beginners in the field. Features include a readerfriendly introduction to tensor calculus and the concept of manifolds; a simple and robust treatment for dimensional regularization; a consistent explanation of the renormalization procedure, step by step and in a transparent manner at all orders, using the QED Lagrangian; and extensive treatment of infrared as well as ultraviolet divergences. The most general (Lorentz invariant) form of Noether's theorem is presented and applied to a few simple yet relevant examples in Quantum Field Theory. These and further interesting topics are addressed in a way that will be accessible for the target readership. Some familiarity with basic notions of Quantum Field Theory and the basics of Special Relativity is assumed
