Title  Higgs Properties at the LHC : Implications for the Standard Model and for Cosmology 
Author(s)  Yue, Jason Tsz Shing 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVIII, 130 p. 35 illus., 21 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis studies the properties of the Higgs particle, discovered at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in 2012, in order to elucidate its role in electroweak symmetry breaking and cosmological phase transition in the early universe. It shows that a generic spin2 Higgs impostor is excluded by the precision measurements of electroweak observables and perturbative unitarity considerations. It obtains LHC constraints on anomalous CPviolating HiggsTop Yukawa couplings and examines the prospects of their measurement in future experiments. Lastly, it discusses in detail the electroweak phase transition and generation of cosmological matter???antimatter asymmetry in the universe with anomalous Higgs couplings

Title  Oscillations of Disks 
Author(s)  Kato, Shoji 
Publication  Tokyo, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Japan, 2016. 
Description  XV, 261 p. 49 illus., 6 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents the current state of research on disk oscillation theory, focusing on relativistic disks and tidally deformed disks. Since the launch of the Rossi Xray Timing Explorer (RXTE) in 1996, many highfrequency quasiperiodic oscillations (HFQPOs) have been observed in Xray binaries. Subsequently, similar quasiperiodic oscillations have been found in such relativistic objects as microquasars, ultraluminous Xray sources, and galactic nuclei. One of the most promising explanations of their origin is based on oscillations in relativistic disks, and a new field called discoseismology is currently developing. After reviewing observational aspects, the book presents the basic characteristics of disk oscillations, especially focusing on those in relativistic disks. Relativistic disks are essentially different from Newtonian disks in terms of several basic characteristics of their disk oscillations, including the radial distributions of epicyclic frequencies. In order to understand the basic processes of disk oscillations, studies on binary systems are of importance, as they offer valuable information on wave???wave coupling processes in disk oscillations. Accordingly, some characteristics of oscillations in deformed disks are also presented in this book. The book consists of two parts. Points covered in Part I include, for instance, the basic characteristics of disk oscillations, classification of oscillation modes, and trapping of oscillations. In Part II, the focus is mainly on excitation processes of oscillations, while applications to observations are also discussed

Title  The Electron Mass and Calcium Isotope Shifts : HighPrecision Measurements of BoundElectron gFactors of Highly Charged Ions 
Author(s)  K??hlerLanges, Florian 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIV, 168 p. 69 illus., 24 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis presents the first isotopeshift measurement of boundelectron gfactors of highly charged ions and determines the most precise value of the electron mass in atomic mass units, which exceeds the value in the literature by a factor of 13. As the lightest fundamental massive particle, the electron is one of nature???s few central building blocks. A precise knowledge of its intrinsic properties, such as its mass, is mandatory for the most accurate tests in physics  the Quantum Electrodynamics tests that describe one of the four established fundamental interactions in the universe. The underlying measurement principle combines a highprecision measurement of the Larmortocyclotron frequency ratio on a single hydrogenlike carbon ion studied in a Penning trap with very accurate calculations of the socalled boundelectron gfactor. Here, the gfactors of the valence electrons of two lithiumlike calcium isotopes have been measured with relative uncertainties of a few 10^{10}, constituting an as yet unrivaled level of precision for lithiumlike ions. These calcium isotopes provide a unique system across the entire nuclear chart to test the pure relativistic nuclear recoil effect

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  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  New Approaches to Nonlinear Waves 
Author(s)  Tobisch, Elena 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XV, 298 p. 65 illus., 15 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book details a few of the novel methods developed in the last few years for studying various aspects of nonlinear wave systems. The introductory chapter provides a general overview, thematically linking the objects described in the book. Two chapters are devoted to wave systems possessing resonances with linear frequencies (Chapter 2) and with nonlinear frequencies (Chapter 3). In the next two chapters modulation instability in the KdVtype of equations is studied using rigorous mathematical methods (Chapter 4) and its possible connection to freak waves is investigated (Chapter 5). The book goes on to demonstrate how the choice of the Hamiltonian (Chapter 6) or the Lagrangian (Chapter 7) framework allows us to gain a deeper insight into the properties of a specific wave system. The final chapter discusses problems encountered when attempting to verify the theoretical predictions using numerical or laboratory experiments. All the chapters are illustrated by ample constructive examples demonstrating the applicability of these novel methods and approaches to a wide class of evolutionary dispersive PDEs, e.g. equations from BenjaminOro, Boussinesq, HasegawaMima,?? KdVtype,?? KleinGordon, NLStype, Serre,?? Shamel , Whitham and Zakharov. This makes the book interesting for professionals in the fields of nonlinear physics, applied mathematics and fluid mechanics as well as students who are studying these subjects. The book can also be used as a basis for a onesemester lecture course in applied mathematics or mathematical physics. ?? ??

Description  XXI, 328 p. 91 illus., 90 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Holger Bartolf discusses stateoftheart detection concepts based on superconducting nanotechnology as well as sophisticated analytical formul?? that model dissipative fluctuationphenomena in superconducting nanowire singlephoton detectors. Such knowledge is desirable for the development of advanced devices which are designed to possess an intrinsic robustness against vortexfluctuations and it provides the perspective for honorable fundamental science in condensed matter physics. Especially the nanowire detector allows for ultralow noise detection of signals with singlephoton sensitivity and GHz repetition rates. Such devices have a huge potential for future technological impact and might enable unique applications (e.g. high rate interplanetary deepspace data links from Mars to Earth).

Title  The TwoPhoton Decay of the 11/2 Isomer of 137Ba and MixedSymmetry States of 92,94Zr and 94Mo 
Author(s)  Walz, Christopher 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XV, 160 p. 71 illus., 62 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This??work focuses on new electromagnetic decay mode in nuclear physics. The first part of the thesis presents the observation of the twophoton decay for a transition where the onephoton decay is allowed. In the second part, so called quadrupole mixedsymmetry is investigated in inelastic proton scattering experiments. In 1930 Nobelprize winner M. GoeppertMayer was the first to discuss??the twophoton decay of an exited state in her doctoral thesis. This process has been observed many times in atomic physics. However in nuclear physics data is sparse. Here this decay mode has only been observed for the special case of a transition between nuclear states with spin and parity quantum number 0+. For such a transition, the onephoton decay ??? the main experimental obstacle to observe the twophoton decay ??? is forbidden. Furthermore, the energy sharing and angular distributions were measured, allowing??conclusions to be drawn??about the multipoles contributing??to the twophoton transition. Quadrupole mixedsymmetry states are an excitation mode in spherical nuclei which are sensitive to the strength of the quadrupole residual interaction. A new signature for these interesting states??is presented which allows??identification of mixedsymmetry states independently of electromagnetic transition strengths. Furthermore this signature represents a valuable additional observable to test model predictions for mixedsymmetry states

Title  Search for New Physics in Monojet Final States in pp Collisions : at ???s=13 TeV with the ATLAS Experiment at the LHC 
Author(s)  Gustavino, Giuliano 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XV, 236 p. 132 illus., 42 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis provides a detailed and comprehensive description of the search for New Physics at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in the monojet final state, using the first 3.2~fb$^{1}$ of data collected at the centre of mass energy of colliding protons of 13~TeV recorded in the ATLAS experiment at LHC. The results are interpreted as limits in different theoretical contexts such as compressed supersymmetric models, theories that foresee extraspatial dimensions and in the dark matter scenario. In the latter the limits are then compared with those obtained by other ATLAS analyses and by experiments based on completely different experimental techniques, highlighting the role of the monojet results in the context of dark matter searches. Lastly, a set of possible analysis improvements are proposed to reduce the main uncertainties that affect the signal region and to increase the discovery potential by further exploiting the information on the final state

Title  Asymptotic Representation of Relaxation Oscillations in Lasers 
Author(s)  Grigorieva, Elena V;Kaschenko, Sergey A 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  VIII, 230 p. 73 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  In this book we analyze relaxation oscillations in models of lasers with nonlinear elements controlling light dynamics. The models are based on rate equations taking into account periodic modulation of parameters, optoelectronic delayed feedback, mutual coupling between lasers, intermodal interaction and other factors. With the aim to study relaxation oscillations we present the special asymptotic method of integration for ordinary differential equations and differentialdifference equations. As a result, they are reduced to discrete maps. Analyzing the maps we describe analytically such nonlinear phenomena in lasers as multistability of largeamplitude relaxation cycles, bifurcations of cycles, controlled switching of regimes, phase synchronization in an ensemble of coupled systems and others. The book can be fruitful for students and technicians in nonlinear laser dynamics and in differential equations
