Title  Covariant Canonical Gauge Gravity 
Author(s)  Vasak, David;Struckmeier, J??rgen;Kirsch, Johannes 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  X, 207 p. 12 illus., 10 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book starts with the mathematical basis of the theory  i.e. provide a brief sketch of the theory of manifolds and frame bundles, tensors and their transformations, relativistic kinematics, and aspects of nonflat spacetime geometries. The definition of relevant physical quantities (torsion, curvature, nonmetricity, tetrads, connection fields etc.) and important geometry concepts are also included. The main body of the book is devoted to a detailed derivation of the gauge theory of gravitation for scalar, vector (Proca and Maxwell) and Dirac spinor fields. Alternative approaches based on the Noether theorem and on the spinorial representation of the fields are also addressed, as well as important novel features related to the CCGG framework (Birkhoff theorem, field derivative identities etc.). In the last section of the volume the application of the CCGG theory to cosmology will be set out, resulting in a new understanding of dark energy and inflation.

Title  Testing Explanations of Short Baseline Neutrino Anomalies 
Author(s)  Foppiani, Nicol?? 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XXI, 216 p. 1 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis, encompassing both theory to experiment, guides the reader in a pedagogical way through the author???s attempts to resolve the mystery of the socalled MiniBooNE anomaly, where neutrino oscillations were reported, potentially explainable by the existence of light sterile neutrinos, but in contradiction with several null results. Within this context, this thesis reports one of the first analyses searching for an excess of electrons in the MicroBooNE experiment finding no excess of events and narrowing down the possible explanations for the anomaly. Additionally, this thesis explores nonminimal heavy neutral leptons as potential explanations for the MiniBooNE excess. To search for evidence for this particle, the author performs an analysis using data from the T2K experiment, which searched for pairs of electrons using a gas argon time projection. This thesis provides a comprehensive explanation of the MiniBooNE anomaly and its search with liquid and gas time projection chambers

Title  The Beauty and the Boost: A Higgs Boson Tale : Measurements of Higgs Boson Production at High Energy in Decays to Bottom Quarks and Their Interpretations with the ATLAS Experiment at the LHC 
Author(s)  Moser, Brian 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XXII, 234 p. 127 illus., 114 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Precision measurements of the Higgs boson???s properties are a powerful tool to look for deviations from the predictions of the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics. The 139/fb of protonproton collision data which have been collected by the ATLAS experiment during Run 2 of the LHC, offer an opportunity to investigate rare Higgsboson topologies, which are particularly sensitive to new physics scenarios but experimentally difficult to access. Several such measurements, which target Higgsboson decays to heavyflavour quarks, as well as their combinations are presented in this thesis. A novel analysis that measures Higgsboson production in association with a heavy vector boson V (VH, with V=W,Z) at high energies is presented. Dedicated Higgsboson reconstruction techniques are applied to reconstruct the highly Lorentzboosted Higgsboson decays into pairs of bottom quarks. The measurement is subsequently combined with a VH crosssection measurement at low and intermediate pT(V) to provide a differential crosssection measurement in kinematic fiducial volumes over the largest possible pT(V) range. All crosssection measurements agree with the SM predictions within relative uncertainties that range from 30% to 300%. The results are furthermore interpreted as limits on the parameters of a SM effective field theory. Finally, a combination of measurements of Higgs decays to heavyflavour quarks is used to experimentally determine that the Higgsboson coupling to charm quarks is weaker than to bottom quarks, as predicted by the SM. The target audience for the thesis are physicists and physics students, in particular those with a background in high energy physics

Author(s)  Delhom, Adri??;Jim??nez Cano, Alejandro;Maldonado Torralba, Francisco Jos?? 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XI, 71 p. 3 illus., 2 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents the most common types of instabilities arising in classical field theories, namely tachyonic, Laplacian, ghostlike or strong coupling instabilities, also commenting on their quantum implications. The authors provide a detailed account on the Ostrogradski theorem and its implications for higherorder timederivative field theories. After presenting the general concepts and formalism, they dive into its applications to particular field theories, using mainly modified gravity theories as examples. The book is intended for advanced undergraduate/graduate students, but can also be useful for researchers, for having a unified exposition of general results on instabilities in field theory and examples of their applications

Title  Search for Higgs Boson Decays to Charm Quarks with the ATLAS Experiment and Development of Novel Silicon Pixel Detectors 
Author(s)  Mironova, Maria 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XVIII, 193 p. 109 illus., 101 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book explores the Higgs boson and its interactions with fermions, as well as the detector technologies used to measure it. The Standard Model of Particle Physics has been a groundbreaking theory in our understanding of the fundamental properties of the universe, but it is incomplete, and there are significant hints which require new physics. The discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012 was a substantial confirmation of the Standard Model, but many of its decay modes remain elusive. This book presents the latest search for Higgs boson decays into cquarks using a protonproton collision dataset collected by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). This decay mode has yet to be observed and requires advanced machine learning algorithms to identify cquarks in the experiment. The results provide an upper limit on the rate of Higgs boson decays to cquarks and a direct measurement of the Higgs boson coupling strength to cquarks. The book also discusses the future of particle physics and the need for significant improvements to the detector to cope with increased radiation damage and higher data rates at the HighLuminosity LHC. It presents the characterization of the ATLAS pixel detector readout chip for the inner detector upgrade (ITk). The chip was subjected to irradiations using Xrays and protons to simulate the radiation environment at the HLLHC. The tests showed that all readout chip components, including the digital logic and analogue frontend, are sufficiently radiationtolerant to withstand the expected radiation dose. Finally, this book describes monolithic pixel detectors as a possible technology for future pixel detectors. This book is ideal for individuals interested in exploring particle physics, the Higgs boson, and the development of silicon pixel detectors

Title  Relativistic Quantum Invariance 
Author(s)  Ji, ChuengRyong 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  XIII, 245 p. 125 illus., 107 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book describes the invariant nature of the relativistic quantum field theories utilizing the idea of interpolating the instant form dynamics and the lightfront dynamics. While the lightfront dynamics (LFD) based on the lightfront time was proposed by Dirac in 1949, there has not yet been a salient review on the connection between the LFD and the instant form dynamics (IFD) based on the ordinary time. By reviewing the connection between LFD and IFD using the idea of interpolating the two different forms of the relativistic dynamics, one can learn the distinguished features of each form and how one may utilize those distinguished features in solving the complicated relativistic quantum field theoretic problems more effectively. With the ongoing 12GeV Jefferson Lab experiments, the internal structures of the nucleon and nuclei are vigorously investigated in particular using the physical observables defined in the LFD rather than in the IFD. This book offers a clear demonstration on why and how the LFD is more advantageous than the IFD for the study of hadron physics, illustrating the differences and similarities between these two distinguished forms of the dynamics. It aims at presenting the basic firsthand knowledge of the relativistic quantum field theories, describing why and how the different forms of dynamics (e.g., IFD and LFD) can emerge in them, connecting the IFD and the LFD using the idea of the interpolation, and demonstrating explicit examples of the interpolation in quantum electrodynamics and other field theories. While the level of presentation is planned mainly for the advanced undergraduate students and the beginning graduate students, the topics of the interpolation between the IFD and the LFD are innovative enough for even the experts in the field to appreciate its usefulness

Title  Gravitational Waves from a Quantum Field Theory Perspective 
Author(s)  Mohanty, Subhendra 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XV, 266 p. 34 illus., 21 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book treats the subject of gravitational waves (GWs) production in binary stars or blackholes and in the early universe, using tools of quantum field theory which are familiar to graduate students and researchers in particle physics. A special focus is given to the generation of templates of gravitational wave signals from Feynman diagram calculations of transition amplitudes, which interests active researchers in GWs. The book presents field theory concepts, like supersymmetry realized in spinning binaries and softgraviton theorems, that can have practical applications in novel GW signals, like the memory effect. The book also aims at specialists in both GWs and particle physics addressing cosmological models of phase transition and inflation that can be tested in observations at terrestrial and space based interferometers, pulsar timing arrays, and the cosmic microwave anisotropy observations
