Title  First Observation of Coherent Elastic NeutrinoNucleus Scattering 
Author(s)  Scholz, Bjorn 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XIV, 144 p. 87 illus., 85 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis describes the experimental work that finally led to a successful measurement of coherent elastic neutrinonucleus scattering???a process proposed fortythree years ago. The experiment was performed at the Spallation Neutron Source facility, sited at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, in Tennessee. Of all known particles, neutrinos distinguish themselves for being the hardest to detect, typically requiring large multiton devices for the job. The process measured here involves the difficult detection of very weak signals arising from nuclear recoils (tiny neutrinoinduced ???kicks??? to atomic nuclei), but leads to a much larger probability of neutrino interaction when compared to all other known mechanisms. As a result of this, ???neutrino technologies??? using miniaturized detectors (the author's was handheld and weighed only 14 kg) become a possibility. A large community of researchers plans to continue studying this process, facilitating an exploration of fundamental neutrino properties that is presently beyond the sensitivity of other methods

Title  Problems and Solutions in Nuclear and Particle Physics 
Author(s)  Petrera, Sergio 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XII, 140 p. 28 illus., 8 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents 140 problems with solutions in introductory nuclear and particle physics. Rather than being only partially provided or simply outlined, as is typically the case in textbooks on nuclear and particle physics, all solutions are explained in detail. Furthermore, different possible approaches are compared. Some of the problems concern the estimation of quantities in realistic experimental situations. In general, solving the problems does not require a substantial mathematics background, and the focus is instead on developing the reader???s sense of physics in order to work out the problem in question. Consequently, sections on experimental methods and detection methods constitute a major part of the book. Given its format and content, it offers a valuable resource, not only for undergraduate classes but also for selfassessment in preparation for graduate school entrance and other examinations

Title  Target Station Optimization for the HighBrilliance Neutron Source HBS : Simulation Studies Based on the Monte Carlo Method 
Author(s)  Dabruck, Jan Philipp 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XVII, 190 p. 145 illus., 114 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  In the present work, the target station of the acceleratordriven neutron source HBS is optimized in comprehensive parameter studies using the MontoCarlo method. The dependence of the most important performance characteristics of such a system on the external parameters is investigated neglecting technical and mechanical limitations. In this way, qualitative and quantitative statements for all possible configurations and envisaged applications can be derived and should be considered in the detailed planning of such facilities. For this purpose, different scenarios are considered that place completely different requirements on the design of the target station. The central statements derived in this thesis can be transferred to any framework conditions, such as different accelerator energies, so that these results can be used in the development of other neutron sources, which together with the HBS form a European network and provide a prosperous community in neutron science

Title  Studying Compact Star Equation of States with General Relativistic Initial Data Approach 
Author(s)  Zhou, Enping 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2020. 
Description  XVIII, 78 p. 23 illus., 22 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book focuses on the equation of state (EoS) of compact stars, particularly the intriguing possibility of the ???quark star model.??? The EoS of compact stars is the subject of ongoing debates among astrophysicists and particle physicists, due to the nonperturbative property of strong interaction at low energy scales. The book investigates the tidal deformability and maximum mass of rotating quark stars and triaxially rotating quark stars, and compares them with those of neutron stars to reveal significant differences. Lastly, by combining the latest observations of GW170817, the book suggests potential ways to distinguish between the neutron star and quark star models.

Title  Nuclear Lattice Effective Field Theory : An Introduction 
Author(s)  L??hde, Timo A;Mei??ner, UlfG 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XI, 396 p. 52 illus., 37 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This primer begins with a brief introduction to the main ideas underlying Effective Field Theory (EFT) and describes how nuclear forces are obtained from first principles by introducing a Euclidean spacetime lattice for chiral EFT. It subsequently develops the related technical aspects by addressing the twonucleon problem on the lattice and clarifying how it fixes the numerical values of the lowenergy constants of chiral EFT. In turn, the spherical wall method is introduced and used to show how improved lattice actions render higherorder corrections perturbative. The book also presents Monte Carlo algorithms used in actual calculations. In the last part of the book, the Euclidean time projection method is introduced and used to compute the groundstate properties of nuclei up to the midmass region. In this context, the construction of appropriate trial wave functions for the Euclidean time projection is discussed, as well as methods for determining the energies of the lowlying excitations and their spatial structure. In addition, the socalled adiabatic Hamiltonian, which allows nuclear reactions to be precisely calculated, is introduced using the example of alphaalpha scattering. In closing, the book demonstrates how Nuclear Lattice EFT can be extended to studies of unphysical values of the fundamental parameters, using the triplealpha process as a concrete example with implications for the anthropic view of the Universe. Nuclear Lattice Effective Field Theory offers a concise, selfcontained, and introductory text suitable for selfstudy use by graduate students and newcomers to the field of modern computational techniques for atomic nuclei and nuclear reactions

Title  The History and Science of the Manhattan Project 
Author(s)  Reed, Bruce Cameron 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2019. 
Description  XVIII, 538 p. 190 illus., 27 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The development of atomic bombs under the auspices of the U.S. Army???s Manhattan Project during World War II is considered to be the outstanding news story of the twentieth century. In this book, a physicist and expert on the history of the Project presents a comprehensive overview of this momentous achievement. The first three chapters cover the history of nuclear physics from the discovery of radioactivity to the discovery of fission, and would be ideal for instructors of a sophomorelevel ???Modern Physics??? course. Studentlevel exercises at the ends of the chapters are accompanied by answers. Chapter 7 covers the physics of firstgeneration fission weapons at a similar level, again accompanied by exercises and answers. For the interested layman and for nonscience students and instructors, the book includes extensive qualitative material on the history, organization, implementation, and results of the Manhattan Project and the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombing missions. The reader also learns about the legacy of the Project as reflected in the current world stockpiles of nuclear weapons. This second edition contains important revisions and additions, including a new chapter on the German atomic bomb program and new sections on British and Canadian contributions to the Manhattan project and on feed materials. Several other sections have been expanded; reader feedback has been helpful in introducing minor corrections and improved explanations; and, last but not least, the second edition includes a detailed index.
