Title  The Discovery of Isotopes : A Complete Compilation 
Author(s)  Thoennessen, Michael 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 413 p. 107 illus., 21 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book describes the exciting discovery of every isotope observed on earth to date, which currently numbers some 3000. For each isotope a short essay highlights the authors of the first publication for the isotope, the laboratory and year where and when the isotope was discovered, as well as details about the production and detection methods used. In controversial cases previously claims are also discussed. At the end a comprehensive table lists all isotopes sorted by elements and a complete list of references. Preliminary versions of these paragraphs have been published over the last few years as separate articles in the journal "Atomic Data and Nuclear Data Tables". The work reevaluates all assignments judging them with a uniform set of criteria. In addition, the author includes over 100 new isotopes which have been discovered since the articles published. This book is a source of information for researchers as well as enthusiastic laymen alike. From the prepublication review: ???The explanations focus on the essentials, which makes the various chapters pleasingly compact. The phrasing is well understandable also for nonexperts. This makes the book easy to read, even thrilling. I have to confess that parts of the manuscript I was even reading as an evening lecture in the bed, so exciting was the history of isotope discoveries.??? Sigurd Hofmann, Helmholtz Professor at GSI Darmstadt, Germany, and a leading expert in superheavy nuclei

Title  The Anomalous Magnetic Moment of the Muon 
Author(s)  Jegerlehner, Friedrich 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVIII, 693 p. 206 illus., 110 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This research monograph covers extensively the theory of the muon anomalous magnetic moment and provides estimates of the theoretical uncertainties. The muon anomalous magnetic moment is one of the most precisely measured quantities in elementary particle physics and provides one of the most stringent tests of relativistic quantum field theory as a fundamental theoretical framework. It allows for an extremely precise check of the standard model of elementary particles and of its limitations. This book reviews the present state of knowledge of the anomalous magnetic moment a=(g2)/2 of the muon. Recent experiments at the Brookhaven National Laboratory now reach the unbelievable precision of 0.5 parts per million, improving the accuracy of previous g2 experiments at CERN by a factor of 14. In addition, quantum electrodynamics and electroweak and hadronic effects are reviewed. Since nonperturbative hadronic effects play a key role for the precision test, their evaluation is described in detail. Perspectives for future improvements of the theoretical and experimental precision are considered. The new edition features improved theoretical predictions to match upcoming experiments, like the one at Fermilab. Additionally the new more precise basic parameters are presented

Title  Probability and Statistics for Particle Physics 
Author(s)  Ma??a, Carlos 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  X, 244 p. 27 illus., 11 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book comprehensively presents the basic concepts of probability and Bayesian inference with sufficient generality to make them applicable to current problems in scientific research. The first chapter provides the fundamentals of probability theory that are essential for the analysis of random phenomena. The second chapter includes a full and pragmatic review of the Bayesian methods that constitute a natural and coherent framework with enough freedom to analyze all the information available from experimental data in a conceptually simple manner. The third chapter presents the basic Monte Carlo techniques used in scientific research, allowing a large variety of problems to be handled difficult to tackle by other procedures. The author also introduces a basic algorithm, which enables readers to simulate samples from simple distribution, and describes useful cases for researchers in particle physics.The final chapter is devoted to the basic ideas of Information Theory, which are important in the Bayesian methodology. This highly readable book is appropriate for graduatelevel courses, while at the same time being useful for scientific researches in general and for physicists in particular since most of the examples are from the field of Particle Physics.

Title  Towards Offline PET Monitoring at a CyclotronBased Proton Therapy Facility : Experiments and Monte Carlo Simulations 
Author(s)  W??rl, Matthias 
Publication  Wiesbaden, 1. Imprint: Springer Spektrum
2. Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden, 2016. 
Description  XV, 86 p. 30 illus., 10 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Matthias W??rl presents two essential steps to implement offline PET monitoring of proton dose delivery at a clinical facility, namely the setting up of an accurate Monte Carlo model of the clinical beamline and the experimental validation of positron emitter production crosssections. In the first part, the field size dependence of the dose output is described for scanned proton beams. Both the Monte Carlo and an analytical computational beam model were able to accurately predict target dose, while the latter tends to overestimate dose in normal tissue. In the second part, the author presents PET measurements of different phantom materials, which were activated by the proton beam. The results indicate that for an irradiation with a high number of protons for the sake of good statistics, dead time losses of the PET scanner may become important and lead to an underestimation of positronemitter production yields. Contents Monte Carlo Modeling of a Clinical Proton Beam LowDose Envelope and Field Size Factor PET Activation Studies Target Groups Researchers and students in the field of medical physics with focus on particle therapy Medical physicists at proton therapy facilities The Author Matthias W??rl wrote his Master???s Thesis at the chair of Medical Physics at the LudwigMaximilians University Munich. He is now a PhD student at the same department, working on transmission imaging with laseraccelerated ions

Title  Cosmology Beyond Einstein 
Author(s)  Solomon, Adam Ross 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XXI, 231 p. 20 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis investigates the theoretical and cosmological implications of modifying Einstein's theory of general relativity. It explores two classes of modifications to gravity: those in which the graviton is given a small mass, and those in which Lorentz invariance is spontaneously broken. It elucidates the nature of cosmological perturbations in theories of massive bimetric gravity, including a potentially deadly instability. Theories of gravity beyond general relativity could explain why the expansion of the Universe is accelerating, obviating the need for a dark energy, and can also affect the evolution of the early Universe. Next, it investigates the nature of spacetime in massive gravity theories that contain two different spacetime metrics. Lastly, the strongest constraints to date are placed on the size of Lorentzviolating effects in the gravity sector during inflation.

Title  Classical and Quantum Dynamics : From Classical Paths to Path Integrals 
Author(s)  Dittrich, Walter;Reuter, Martin 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVI, 489 p. 18 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Graduate students who wish to become familiar with advanced computational strategies in classical and quantum dynamics will find in this book both the fundamentals of a standard course and a detailed treatment of the timedependent oscillator, ChernSimons mechanics, the Maslov anomaly and the Berry phase, to name just a few topics. Wellchosen and detailed examples illustrate perturbation theory, canonical transformations and the action principle, and demonstrate the usage of path integrals. The fifth edition has been revised and enlarged to include chapters on quantum electrodynamics, in particular, Schwinger???s proper time method and the treatment of classical and quantum mechanics with Lie brackets and pseudocanonical transformations. It is shown that operator quantum electrodynamics can be equivalently described with cnumbers, as demonstrated by calculating the propagation function for an electron in a prescribed classical electromagnetic field

Title  Baryonic Processes in the LargeScale Structuring of the Universe 
Author(s)  Durrive, JeanBaptiste 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIII, 187 p. 29 illus., 23 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis addresses two very different but equally important topics in the very broad fields of astrophysics and cosmology: (I) the generation of cosmological magnetic fields and (II) gravitational fragmentation of the Cosmic Web. All mathematical developments are completed by illuminating physical interpretations, and the thesis, which is guided by existing observations, is purely theoretical. In part I, the author further develops a magnetogenesis model proposed in the literature, providing an unprecedented level of physical understanding. He demonstrates that the physics of photoionisation is very likely to have premagnetised, at a relevant level, the entire Universe at the early epoch of the formation of the first luminous sources. In part II, the author adapts the tools of plasma spectral theory to the context of gravitational instability of the baryonic gas within the stratified structures of the Cosmic Web. He skillfully derives the wave equation governing the growth of perturbations and explores various equilibrium configurations, in planar and cylindrical geometries characteristic of cosmic walls and filaments, for isothermal and polytropic conditions, with or without an external gravitational background. Clearly structured and written in pedagogical style, this outstanding thesis puts the results into perspective and highlights the merits and limitations of the various approaches explored
