Title  Classical trajectory perspective of atomic ionization in strong laser fields : semiclassical modeling 
Author(s)  Jie Liu 
Description  1 online resource (viii, 84 pages) : illustrations (some color) 
Abstract Note  The ionization of atoms and molecules in strong laser fields is an active field in modern physics and has versatile applications in such as attosecond physics, Xray generation, inertial confined fusion (ICF), medical science and so on. Classical Trajectory Perspective of Atomic Ionization in Strong Laser Fields covers the basic concepts in this field and discusses many interesting topics using the semiclassical model of classical trajectory ensemble simulation, which is one of the most successful ionization models and has the advantages of a clear picture, feasible computing and accounting for many exquisite experiments quantitatively. The book also presents many applications of the model in such topics as the single ionization, double ionization, neutral atom acceleration and other timely issues in strong field physics, and delivers useful messages to readers with presenting the classical trajectory perspective on the strong field atomic ionization 
Contents Note  Tunneling ionization and classical trajectory model  Single ionization in strong laser fields  Double ionization in strong laser fields  Partition of the linear photon momentum in atomic tunneling ionization  Acceleration of neutral atoms with polarized intense laser fields  Atomic ionization in relativistic intense laser fields

Title  New computation methods for geometrical optics 
Author(s)  PD Lin 
Description  1 online resource (xii, 239 pages) : illustrations (some color) 
Abstract Note  This book employs homogeneous coordinate notation to compute the first and secondorder derivative matrices of various optical quantities. It will be one of the important mathematical tools for automatic optical design. The traditional geometrical optics is based on raytracing only. It is very difficult, if possible, to compute the first and secondorder derivatives of a ray and optical path length with respect to system variables, since they are recursive functions. Consequently, current commercial software packages use a finite difference approximation methodology to estimate these derivatives for use in optical design and analysis. Furthermore, previous publications of geometrical optics use vector notation, which is comparatively awkward for computations for nonaxially symmetrical systems 
Contents Note  Homogeneous coordinate notation  SkewRay Tracing at Boundary Surfaces  Modeling an Optical System  Paraxial Optics for AxisSymmetrical Systems  The Jacobian Matrix of a Ray with respect to System Variable Vector  Point Spread Function and Modulation Transfer Function  Optical Path Length and Its Jacobian Matrix with respect to System Variable Vector  The Wavefront Shape, Irradiance, and Caustic Surface in an Optical System

Title  Deterministic Abelian sandpile models and patterns 
Author(s)  Guglielmo Paoletti 
Description  1 online resource (xii, 163 pages) : illustrations 
Abstract Note  The model investigated in this work, a particular cellular automaton with stochastic evolution, was introduced as the simplest case of selforganizedcriticality, that is, a dynamical system which shows algebraic longrange correlations without any tuning of parameters. The author derives exact results which are potentially also interesting outside the area of critical phenomena. Exact means also sitebysite and not only ensemble average or coarse graining. Very complex and amazingly beautiful periodic patterns are often generated by the dynamics involved, especially in deterministic protocols in which the sand is added at chosen sites. For example, the author studies the appearance of allometric structures, that is, patterns which grow in the same way in their whole body, and not only near their boundaries, as commonly occurs. The local conservation laws which govern the evolution of these patterns are also presented. This work has already attracted interest, not only in nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, but also in mathematics, both in probability and in combinatorics. There are also interesting connections with number theory. Lastly, it also poses new questions about an old subject. As such, it will be of interest to computer practitioners, demonstrating the simplicity with which charming patterns can be obtained, as well as to researchers working in many other areas

Title  Theory of nonlinear propagation of high harmonics generated in a gaseous medium 
Author(s)  Cheng Jin 
Description  1 online resource (xiv, 159 pages) : illustrations (some color) 
Abstract Note  Theory of Nonlinear Propagation of High Harmonics Generated in a Gaseous Medium establishes the theoretical tools to study HighOrder Harmonic Generation (HHG) by intense ultrafast infrared lasers in atoms and molecules. The macroscopic propagation of both laser and highharmonic fields is taken into account by solving Maxwell's wave equations, while the singleatom or singlemolecule response is treated with a quantitative rescattering theory by solving the timedependent Schrd inger equation. This book demonstrates for the first time that observed experimental HHG spectra of atoms and molecules can be accurately reproduced theoretically when precise experimental conditions are known. The macroscopic HHG can be expressed as a product of a macroscopic wave packet and a photorecombination cross section, where the former depends on laser and experimental conditions while the latter is the property of target atoms or molecules. The factorization makes it possible to retrieve microscopically atomic or molecular structure information from the measured macroscopic HHG spectra. This book also investigates other important issues about HHG, such as contributions from multiple molecular orbitals, the minimum in the HHG spectrum, the spatial mode of laser beams, and the generation of an isolated attosecond pulse. Additionally, this book presents the photoelectron angular distribution of aligned molecules ionized by the HHG light

Title  Kinetic simulations of ion transport in fusion devices 
Author(s)  Andrï¿½es Bustos Molina 
Description  1 online resource (xi, 128 pages) : color illustrations 
Abstract Note  This thesis deals with the problem of ion confinement in thermonuclear fusion devices. It is a topic of general interest, as it helps to understand via numerical simulations the ion confinement properties in complex geometries, in order to predict their behavior and maximize the performance of future fusion reactors. The main work carried out in this thesis is the improvement and exploitation of an existing simulation code called ISDEP. This code solves the socalled ion collisional transport in arbitrary plasma geometry, improving in this sense other existing codes. Additionally, it presents outstanding portability and scalability in distributed computing architectures, such as Grid or Volunteer Computing. The main physical results can be divided into two blocks. First, the study of 3D ion transport in ITER is presented. ITER is the largest fusion reactor (under construction) and most of the simulations so far assume the axissymmetry of the device. Unfortunately, this symmetry is only an approximation because of the discrete number of magnetic coils used. ISDEP has shown, using a simple model of the 3D magnetic field, how the ion confinement is affected by this symmetry breaking. Secondly, ISDEP has been applied successfully to the study of fast ion dynamics in fusion plasmas. The fast ions, with energies much larger than the thermal energy, are a product of the device's heating system. Thus, a numerical predictive tool can be used to improve the heating efficiency. ISDEP has been combined with the FAFNER2 code to study such ions in stellarator (TJII, LHD) and tokamak (ITER) geometries. It has also been validated by experimental results. In particular, comparisons with the CNPA diagnostic in the TJII stellarator are remarkable

Title  Statistics and analysis of scientific data 
Author(s)  Massimiliano Bonamente 
Description  1 online resource (xv, 301 pages) : illustrations 
Abstract Note  Stlatistics and Analysis of Scientific Data covers the foundations of probability theory and statistics, and a number of numerical and analytical methods that are essential for the presentday analyst of scientific data. Topics covered include probability theory, distribution functions of statistics, fits to twodimensional datasheets and parameter estimation, Monte Carlo methods and Markov chains. Equal attention is paid to the theory and its practical application, and results from classic experiments in various fields are used to illustrate the importance of statistics in the analysis of scientific data. The main pedagogical method is a theorythenapplication approach, where emphasis is placed first on a sound understanding of the underlying theory of a topic, which becomes the basis for an efficient and proactive use of the material for practical applications. The level is appropriate for undergraduates and beginning graduate students, and as a reference for the experienced researcher. Basic calculus is used in some of the derivations, and no previous background in probability and statistics is required. The book includes many numerical tables of data, as well as exercises and examples to aid the students' understanding of the topic
