Title  Search for Scalar Top Quarks and HiggsinoLike Neutralinos : SUSY Hunting With a ???Soft??? Lepton at the LHC 
Author(s)  Nobe, Takuya 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Singapore, 2016. 
Description  XII, 224 p. 122 illus., 19 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book reports a search for theoretically natural supersymmetry (SUSY) at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The data collected with the ATLAS detector in 2012 corresponding to 20 /fb of an integrated luminosity have been analyzed for stop pair production in proton???proton collisions at a centerofmass energy of 8 TeV at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in the scenario of the higgsinolike neutralino. The author focuses on stop decaying into a bottom quark and chargino. In the scenario of the higgsinolike neutralino, the mass difference between charginos and neutralinos (??m) is expected to be small, and observable finalstate particles are likely to have lowmomentum (soft). The autho r develops a dedicated analysis with a soft lepton as a probe of particles from chargino decay, which suppresses the large amount of backgrounds. As a result of the analysis, no significant SUSY signal is observed. The 95% confidencelevel exclusion limits are set to masses of stop and neutralino assuming ??m = 20 GeV. The region with ??M (the mass difference between stop and neutralino) < 70 GeV is excluded for the first time at stop mass of less than 210 GeV. The author also excludes the signals with ??M > 120 GeV up to 600 GeV of stop mass with neutralino mass of less than 280 GeV. The author clearly shows very few remaining parameter spaces for light stop (e.g., topology of stop decay is extremely similar to the SM top quark) by combining his results and previous ATLAS analyses. His results provide a strong constraint to searches for new physics in the future

Title  Electronic States in Crystals of Finite Size : Quantum Confinement of Bloch Waves 
Author(s)  Ren, Shang Yuan 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Singapore, 2017. 
Description  XVI, 283 p. 42 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents an analytical theory of the electronic states in ideal low dimensional systems and finite crystals based on a differential equation theory approach. It provides precise and fundamental understandings on the electronic states in ideal lowdimensional systems and finite crystals, and offers new insights into some of the basic problems in lowdimensional systems, such as the surface states and quantum confinement effects, etc., some of which are quite different from what is traditionally believed in the solid state physics community. Many previous predictions have been confirmed in subsequent investigations by other authors on various relevant problems. In this new edition, the theory is further extended to onedimensional photonic crystals and phononic crystals, and a general theoretical formalism for investigating the existence and properties of surface states/modes in semiinfinite onedimensional crystals is developed. In addition, there are various revisions and improvements, including using the KronigPenney model to illustrate the analytical theory and make it easier to understand. This book is a valuable resource for solidstate physicists and material scientists

Title  Xray Studies of the Central Engine in Active Galactic Nuclei with Suzaku 
Author(s)  Noda, Hirofumi 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Singapore, 2016. 
Description  XV, 153 p. 95 illus., 33 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The aim of this research was to use the Xray satellite Suzaku to establish a picture of a central engine that effectively converts the gravitational energy of accreting matter onto the supermassive black hole to a huge amount of radiation in an active galactic nucleus. Although the engine is known to consist of a Comptonizing corona and an accretion disk, its image has remained unclear because primary emissions, coming directly from the engine, cannot be identified in Xray spectra without models. The book describes a technique of time variability assisted spectral decomposition to modelindependently examine Xray signals, and how this was applied to the Suzaku archive data of active galactic nuclei. As a result, at least three distinct primary Xray components have been discovered in an Xray from an active galactic nucleus, presumably indicating a novel picture that the engine is composed of multiple coronae with different physical properties in an accretion flow. Furthermore, the determination of the spectral shapes of the primary Xrays has a significant impact on estimations of black hole spins, because it is essential to quantify reprocessed Xray spectra. The successful modelindependent decomposition of Xray spectral components with flux variations of active galactic nuclei is likely to be effective in future data analyses from the soontobelaunched Japanese Xray satellite ASTROH, which is capable of achieving unprecedented fine spectros copy and broad energy band coverage

Title  Frequency Conversion of Ultrashort Pulses in Extended LaserProduced Plasmas 
Author(s)  Ganeev, Rashid A 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Singapore, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 221 p. 101 illus., 6 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers a review of the use of extended ablation plasmas as nonlinear media for HHG of highorder harmonic generation (HHG). The book describes the different experimental approaches, shows the advantages and limitations regarding HHG efficiency and discusses the particular processes that take place at longer interaction lengths, including propagation and quasiphase matching effects. It describes the most recent approaches to harmonic generation in the extreme ultraviolet (XUV) range with the use of extended plasma plumes, and how these differ from more commonlyused gasjet sources. The main focus is on studies using extended plasmas, but some new findings from HHG experiments in narrow plasma plumes are also discussed. It also describes how quasiphasematching in modulated plasmas, as demonstrated in recent studies, has revealed different means of tuning enhanced harmonic groups in the XUV region. After an introduction to the fundamental theoretical and experimental aspects of HHG, a review of the most important results of HHG in narrow plasmas is presented, including recent studies of smallsized plasma plumes as emitters of highorder harmonics. In Chapter 2, various findings in the application of extended plasmas for harmonic generation are analyzed. One of the most important applications of extended plasmas, the quasiphasematching of generated harmonics, is demonstrated in Chapter 3, including various approaches to the modification of perforated plasma plumes. Chapter 4 depicts the nonlinear optical features of extended plasmas produced on the surfaces of different nonmetal materials. Chapter 5 is dedicated to the analysis of new opportunities for extended plasma induced HHG. The advantages of the application of long plasma plumes for HHG, such as resonance enhancement and doublepulse method, are discussed in Chapter 6. Finally, a summary section brings together all of these findings and discuss the perspectives of extended plasma formations for efficient HHG and nonlinear optical plasma spectroscopy. The book will be useful for students and scholars working in this highly multidisciplinary domain involving material science, nonlinear optics and laser spectroscopy. It brings the new researcher to the very frontier of the physics of the interaction between laser and extended plasma; for the expert it will serve as an essential guide and indicate directions for future research

Title  Measurement of Neutrino Interactions and Three Flavor Neutrino Oscillations in the T2K Experiment 
Author(s)  Kikawa, Tatsuya 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Singapore, 2016. 
Description  XX, 264 p. 234 illus., 226 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is based on the author's work in the T2K longbaseline neutrino oscillation experiment, in which neutrinos are generated by a proton beam and are detected by near and far neutrino detectors. In order to achieve the precise measurement of the neutrino oscillation, an accurate understanding of the neutrino beam and the neutrino interaction is essential. Thus, the author measured the neutrino beam properties and the neutrino interaction cross sections using a near neutrino detector called INGRID and promoted a better understanding of them. Then, the author performed a neutrino oscillation analysis using the neutrino beam and neutrino interaction models verified by the INGRID measurements. As a result, some values of the neutrino CP phase are disfavored at the 90% confidence level. If the measurement precision is further improved, we may be able to discover the finite CP phase which involves the CP violation. Thus, this result is an important step towards the discovery of CP violation in the lepton sector, which may be the key to understanding the origin of the matter???antimatter asymmetry in the universe
