Title  High Jet Multiplicity Physics at the LHC 
Author(s)  Crisp??n Ortuzar, Mireia 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XXII, 177 p. 95 illus., 62 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book describes research in two different areas of stateoftheart hadron collider physics, both of which are of central importance in the field of particle physics. The first part of the book focuses on the search for supersymmetric particles called gluinos. The book subsequently presents a set of precision measurements of ???multijet??? collision events, which involve large numbers of newly created particles, and are among the dominant processes at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Now that a Higgs boson has been discovered at the LHC, the existence (or nonexistence) of supersymmetric particles is of the utmost interest and significance, both theoretically and experimentally. In addition, multijet collision events are an important background process for a wide range of analyses, including searches for supersymmetry

Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XIX, 361 p. 189 illus., 12 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This fourth volume of a fourvolume textbook covers the oscillations of systems with one or more degrees of freedom; the concept of waves, focusing on light and sound; phase and group velocities, their physical meaning, and their measurement; diffraction and interference of light; polarization phenomena; and the formation of images in the eye and in optical instruments. The textbook as a whole covers electromagnetism, mechanics, fluids and thermodynamics, and waves and light, and is designed to reflect the typical syllabus during the first two years of a calculusbased university physics program. Throughout all four volumes, particular attention is paid to indepth clarification of conceptual aspects, and to this end the historical roots of the principal concepts are traced. Emphasis is also consistently placed on the experimental basis of the concepts, highlighting the experimental nature of physics. Whenever feasible at the elementary level, concepts relevant to more advanced courses in quantum mechanics and atomic, solid state, nuclear, and particle physics are included. The textbook offers an ideal resource for physics students, lecturers and, last but not least, all those seeking a deeper understanding of the experimental basics of physics.

Title  Optical Properties of Metallic Nanoparticles : Basic Principles and Simulation 
Author(s)  Tr??gler, Andreas 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIX, 217 p. 100 illus., 98 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book introduces the fascinating world of plasmonics and physics at the nanoscale, with a focus on simulations and the theoretical aspects of optics and nanotechnology. A research field with numerous applications, plasmonics bridges the gap between the micrometer length scale of light and the secrets of the nanoworld. This is achieved by binding light to charge density oscillations of metallic nanostructures, socalled surface plasmons, which allow electromagnetic radiation to be focussed down to spots as small as a few nanometers. The book is a snapshot of recent and ongoing research and at the same time outlines our present understanding of the optical properties of metallic nanoparticles, ranging from the tunability of plasmonic resonances to the ultrafast dynamics of lightmatter interaction. Beginning with a gentle introduction that highlights the basics of plasmonic interactions and plasmon imaging, the author then presents a suitable theoretical framework for the description of metallic nanostructures. This model based on this framework is first solved analytically for simple systems, and subsequently through numerical simulations for more general cases where, for example, surface roughness, nonlinear and nonlocal effects or metamaterials are investigated

Title  Diffractive Optics for ThinFilm Silicon Solar Cells 
Author(s)  Schuster, Christian Stefano 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XX, 114 p. 56 illus., 11 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis introduces a figure of merit for light trapping with photonic nanostructures and shows how different light trapping methods compare, irrespective of material, absorber thickness or type of nanostructure. It provides an overview of the essential aspects of light trapping, offering a solid basis for future designs. Light trapping with photonic nanostructures is a powerful method of increasing the absorption in thin film solar cells. Many light trapping methods have been studied, but to date there has been no comprehensive figure of merit to compare these different methods quantitatively. This comparison allows us to establish important design rules for highly performing structures; one such rule is the structuring of the absorber layer from both sides, for which the authors introduce a novel and simple layertransfer technique. A closely related issue is the question of plasmonic vs. dielectric nanostructures; the authors present an experimental demonstration, aided by a detailed theoretical assessment, highlighting the importance of considering the multipass nature of light trapping in a thin film, which is an essential effect that has been neglected in previous work and which allows us to quantify the parasitic losses.

Title  Dynamics of a Quantum Spin Liquid 
Author(s)  Knolle, Johannes 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XV, 140 p. 46 illus., 4 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis presents an exact theoretical study of dynamical correlation functions in different phases of a??twodimensional quantum spin liquid. By calculating the dynamical spin structure factor and the Raman scattering cross section, this??thesis shows that there are salient signatures???qualitative and quantitative???of the Majorana fermions and the gauge fluxes emerging as effective degrees of freedom in the exactly solvable Kitaev honeycomb lattice model. The model is a representative of a class of spin liquids with Majorana fermions coupled to Z2 gauge fields. The qualitative features of the response functions should therefore be characteristic for this broad class of topological states

Title  The Demons of Science : What They Can and Cannot Tell Us About Our World 
Author(s)  Weinert, Friedel 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  IX, 251 p. 40 illus., 8 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is the first allencompassing exploration of the role of demons in philosophical and scientific thought experiments. In Part I, the author explains the importance of thought experiments in science and philosophy. Part II considers Laplace???s Demon, whose claim is that the world is completely deterministic. Part III introduces Maxwell???s Demon, who  by contrast  experiences a world that is probabilistic and indeterministic. Part IV explores Nietzsche???s thesis of the cyclic and eternal recurrence of events. In each case a number of philosophical consequences regarding determinism and indeterminism, the arrows of time, the nature of the mind and free will are said to follow from the Demons???s worldviews. The book investigates what these Demons  and others  can and cannot tell us about our world.

Title  Evaluating Measurement Accuracy : A Practical Approach 
Author(s)  Rabinovich, Semyon G 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XV, 323 p. 22 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a systematic and comprehensive exposition of the theory of measurement accuracy and provides solutions that fill significant and longstanding gaps in the classical theory. It eliminates the shortcomings of the classical theory by including methods for estimating accuracy of single measurements, the most common type of measurement. The book also develops methods of reduction and enumeration for indirect measurements, which do not require Taylor series and produce a precise solution to this problem. It produces grounded methods and recommendations for summation of errors. The monograph also analyzes and critiques two foundation metrological documents, the International Vocabulary of Metrology (VIM) and the Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM), and discusses directions for their revision. This new edition adds a stepbystep guide on how to evaluate measurement accuracy and recommendations on how to calculate systematic error of multiple measurements. There is also an extended section on the method of reduction, which provides an alternative to the leastsquare method and the method of enumeration. Many sections are also rewritten to improve the structure and usability of the material. The 3rd edition reflects the latest developments in metrology and offers new results, and it is designed to be accessible to readers at various levels and positions, including scientists, engineers, and undergraduate and graduate students. By presenting material from a practical perspective and offering solutions and recommendations for problems that arise in conducting reallife measurements, author Semyon Rabinovich offers an invaluable resource for scientists in any field

Title  Cooperative Interactions in Lattices of Atomic Dipoles 
Author(s)  Bettles, Robert 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVII, 169 p. 35 illus., 12 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis reports the remarkable discovery that, by arranging the dipoles in an ordered array with particular spacings, it is possible to greatly enhance the crosssection and achieve a strong lightmatter coupling (>98% of the incident light). It also discusses the broad background to cooperative behaviour in atomic ensembles, and analyses in detail effects in one and twodimensional atomic arrays. In general, when light interacts with matter it excites electric dipoles and since the nineteenth century it has been known that if the amplitude of these induced dipoles is sufficiently large, and their distance apart is on the scale of the wavelength of the light, then their mutual interaction significantly modifies the light???matter interaction. However, it was not known how to exploit this effect to modify the light???matter interaction in a desirable way, for example in order to enhance the optical crosssection
