Title  Search for the Pentaquark ??+ via the ?????p ??? K???X Reaction at JPARC 
Author(s)  Moritsu, Manabu 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Singapore, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 123 p. 86 illus., 38 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This theses reports on an experimental search for an exotic hadron, ??+(1540) pentaquark, which is a genuine exotic hadron with a fivequark system of uuddsbar. The results of this book support that the existence of ??+ was strongly constrained. The ??+ pentaquark was searched for via the ?? p ??? K X reaction using a beam momentum of 2.01 GeV/c at the JPARC hadron experimental facility, taking advantage of highstatistics and highresolution compared with previous experiments, some of which claimed the evidence of ??+. In order to realize a good missingmass resolution of 2 MeV, the beam spectrometer and superconducting kaon spectrometer were constructed. No clear peak was observed in the missing mass spectrum of the ?? p ??? K X reaction, and the upper limit of the production cross section was found to be less than 0.28 ??b/sr at the 90% confidence level in a mass region of 1500???1560 MeV/c2. This upper limit is an order of magnitude smaller than that of the previous KEK experiment. Compared with a theoretical calculation using the effective Lagrangian approach, the decay width of ??+ was evaluated. The upper limits on the decay width were estimated to be 0.36 and 1.9 MeV for the ??+ spinparity of 1/2+ and 1/2, respectively. These are quite small for a width of ordinary hadron resonances, and the existence of ??+ was strongly constrained and is doubtful

Title  Exploring the Size of the Proton : by Means of Deeply Virtual Compton Scattering at CERN 
Author(s)  J??rg, Philipp 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XI, 231 p. 155 illus., 121 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is a rare jewel, describing fundamental research in a highly dynamic field of subatomic physics. It presents an overview of cross section measurements of deeply virtual Compton scattering. Understanding the structure of the proton is one of the most important challenges that physics faces today. A typical tool for experimentally accessing the internal structure of the proton is lepton???nucleon scattering. In particular, deeply virtual Compton scattering at large photon virtuality and small fourmomentum transfer to the proton provides a tool for deriving a threedimensional tomographic image of the proton. Using clear language, this book presents the highly complex procedure used to derive the momentumdissected transverse size of the proton from a pioneering measurement taken at CERN. It describes in detail the foundations of the measurement and the data analysis, and includes exhaustive studies of potential systematic uncertainties, which could bias the result

Title  Extreme States of Matter in Strong Interaction Physics : An Introduction 
Author(s)  Satz, Helmut 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XV, 288 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is a coursetested primer on the thermodynamics of strongly interacting matter ??? a profound and challenging area of both theoretical and experimental modern physics. Analytical and numerical studies of statistical quantum chromodynamics provide the main theoretical tool, while in experiments, highenergy nuclear collisions are the key for extensive laboratory investigations. As such, the field straddles statistical, particle and nuclear physics, both conceptually and in the methods of investigation used. The book addresses, above all, the many young scientists starting their scientific research in this field, providing them with a general, selfcontained introduction that highlights the basic concepts and ideas and explains why we do what we do. Much of the book focuses on equilibrium thermodynamics: first it presents simplified phenomenological pictures, leading to critical behavior in hadronic matter and to a quarkhadron phase transition. This is followed by elements of finite temperature lattice QCD and an exposition of the important results obtained through the computer simulation of the lattice formulation. It goes on to clarify the relationship between the resulting critical behavior due to symmetry breaking/restoration in QCD, before turning to the QCD phase diagram. The presentation of bulk equilibrium thermodyamics is completed by studying the properties of the quarkgluon plasma as a new state of strongly interacting matter. The final chapters of the book are devoted to more specific topics that arise when nuclear collisions are considered as a tool for the experimental study of QCD thermodynamics. This second edition includes a new chapter on the hydrodynamic evolution of the medium produced in nuclear collisions. Since the study of flow for strongly interacting fluids has gained everincreasing importance over the years, it is dealt with it in some detail, including comments on gauge/gravity duality. Moreover, other aspects of experimental studies are brought up to date, such as the search for critical behavior in multihadron production, the calibration of quarkonium production in nuclear collisions, and the relation between strangeness suppression and deconfinement

Title  Lattice QCD Study for the Relation Between Confinement and Chiral Symmetry Breaking 
Author(s)  Doi, Takahiro 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Singapore, 2017. 
Description  XII, 59 p. 18 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis focuses on an unresolved problem in particle and nuclear physics: the relation between two important nonperturbative phenomena in quantum chromodynamics (QCD) ??? quark confinement and chiral symmetry breaking. The author develops a new analysis method in the lattice QCD, and derives a number of analytical formulae to express the order parameters for quark confinement, such as the Polyakov loop, its fluctuations, and the Wilson loop in terms of the Dirac eigenmodes closely related to chiral symmetry breaking. Based on the analytical formulae, the author analytically as well as numerically shows that at finite temperatures there is no direct onetoone correspondence between them. The thesis describes this extraordinary achievement using the firstprinciple analysis, and proposes a possible new phase in which quarks are confined and chiral symmetry is restored

Title  Energy from Nuclear Fission : An Introduction 
Author(s)  De Sanctis, Enzo;Monti, Stefano;Ripani, Marco 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XV, 278 p. 55 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides an overview on nuclear physics and energy production from nuclear fission. It serves as a readable and reliable source of information for anyone who wants to have a wellbalanced opinion about exploitation of nuclear fission in power plants. The text is divided into two parts; the first covers the basics of nuclear forces and properties of nuclei, nuclear collisions, nuclear stability, radioactivity, and provides a detailed discussion of nuclear fission and relevant topics in its application to energy production. The second part covers the basic technical aspects of nuclear fission reactors, nuclear fuel cycle and resources, safety, safeguards, and radioactive waste management. The book also contains a discussion of the biological effects of nuclear radiation and of radiation protection, and a summary of the ten most relevant nuclear accidents. The book is suitable for undergraduates in physics, nuclear engineering and other science subjects. However, the mathematics is kept at a level that can be easily followed by wider circles of readers. The addition of solved problems, strategically placed throughout the text, and the collections of problems at the end of the chapters allow readers to appreciate the quantitative aspects of various phenomena and processes. Many illustrations and graphs effectively supplement the text and help visualising specific points

Title  Hyperspherical Harmonics Expansion Techniques : Application to Problems in Physics 
Author(s)  Das, Tapan Kumar 
Publication  New Delhi, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer India, 2016. 
Description  XI, 159 p. 6 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book provides a generalized theoretical technique for solving the fewbody Schr??dinger equation. Straight forward approaches to solve it in terms of position vectors of constituent particles and using standard mathematical techniques become too cumbersome and inconvenient when the system contains more than two particles. The introduction of Jacobi vectors, hyperspherical variables and hyperspherical harmonics as an expansion basis is an elegant way to tackle systematically the problem of an increasing number of interacting particles. Analytic expressions for hyperspherical harmonics, appropriate symmetrisation of the wave function under exchange of identical particles and calculation of matrix elements of the interaction have been presented. Applications of this technique to various problems of physics have been discussed. In spite of straight forward generalization of the mathematical tools for increasing number of particles, the method becomes computationally difficult for more than a few particles. Hence various approximation methods have also been discussed. Chapters on the potential harmonics and its application to BoseEinstein condensates (BEC) have been included to tackle dilute system of a large number of particles. A chapter on special numerical algorithms has also been provided. This monograph is a reference material for theoretical research in the fewbody problems for research workers starting from advanced graduate level students to senior scientists

Title  From Transuranic to Superheavy Elements : A Story of Dispute and Creation 
Author(s)  Kragh, Helge 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  VIII, 106 p. 2 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  The story of superheavy elements  those at the very end of the periodic table  is not well known outside the community of heavyion physicists and nuclear chemists. But it is a most interesting story which deserves to be known also to historians, philosophers, and sociologists of science and indeed to the general public. This is what the present work aims at. It tells the story or rather parts of the story, of how physicists and chemists created elements heavier than uranium or searched for them in nature. And it does so with an emphasis on the frequent discovery and naming disputes concerning the synthesis of very heavy elements. Moreover, it calls attention to the criteria which scientists have adopted for what it means to have discovered a new element. In this branch of modern science it may be more appropriate to speak of creation instead of discovery. The work will be of interest to scientists as well as to scholars studying modern science from a metaperspective

Title  Measurement of the D0 Meson Production in Pb???Pb and p???Pb Collisions : A Study Performed with the ALICE Experiment at the LHC 
Author(s)  Festanti, Andrea 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XVII, 174 p. 113 illus., 39 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis presents the first measurement of charmed D0 meson production relative to the reaction plane in Pb???Pb collisions at the centerofmass energy per nucleonnucleon collision of ???sNN = 2.76 TeV. It also showcases the measurement of the D0 production in p???Pb collisions at ???sNN = 5.02 TeV with the ALICE detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The measurement of the D0 azimuthal anisotropy with respect to the reaction plane indicates that low momentum charm quarks participate in the collective expansion of the highdensity, strongly interacting medium formed in ultrarelativistic heavyion collisions, despite their large mass. This behavior can be explained by charm hadronization via recombination with light quarks from the medium and collisional energy loss. The measurement of the D0 production in p???Pb collisions is crucial to separate the effect induced by cold nuclear matter from the final state effects induced by the hot medium formed in Pb???Pb collisions. The D0 production in p???Pb collisions is consistent with the binary collision scaling of the production in pp collisions, demonstrating that the modification of the momentum distribution observed in Pb???Pb collisions with respect to pp is predominantly induced by finalstate effects such as the charm energy loss
