Title  With String Theory to the Big Bang : A Journey to the Origin of the Universe 
Author(s)  Louis, Jan 
Publication  Wiesbaden, Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden, 2021. 
Description  X, 57 p. 11 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  The history of the universe has fascinated mankind for centuries. Using the interplay of cosmology, general relativity, particle physics and quantum theory, it is today possible to reconstruct it physically. Only the beginning, the big bang, has so far eluded the established laws of physics. The more one approaches it, the more speculative the story becomes. With this book, the reader is invited on a journey to the Big Bang learning on the way about various physical facts, observations and theories. String theory is introduced as a possible allencompassing physical theory that has the potential to grasp and describe the Big Bang. Its sometimes spectacular predictions, such as additional spatial dimensions or parallel universes, are explained concisely. This Springer essential is a translation of the original German 1st edition essentials, Mit der Stringtheorie zum Urknall by Jan Louis, published by Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden GmbH, part of Springer Nature in 2021. The translation was done with the help of artificial intelligence (machine translation by the service DeepL.com). A subsequent human revision was done primarily in terms of content, so that the book will read stylistically differently from a conventional translation. Springer Nature works continuously to further the development of tools for the production of books and on the related technologies to support the authors. The Contents An introduction and overview of the state of research in cosmology, particle physics and string theory A short version of the history of our universe  from established facts to a selection of speculations The Target Groups Pupils and interested laymen with basic knowledge of natural sciences Students and teachers of all disciplines The Author Prof. Jan Louis studied physics in Karlsruhe, London and Philadelphia and subsequently worked as a research associate at Stanford, CERN and the University of Munich. From 19962002 he held a professorship at the University of Halle and since 2003 he has been at the University of Hamburg, where he heads the Cluster of Excellence "Quantum Universe"

Title  Platos Labyrinth : Dinosaurs, Ancient Greeks, and Time Travelers 
Author(s)  Carroll, Michael 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XVI, 414 p. 14 illus., 12 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  One wants to preserve history. Another seeks to resurrect a legendary army. A third plans to infuse the past with technology to save millions. If you could go back in time, what would you do? Something strange is going on at ChronoCorp. Coffinshaped pods and glowing talismans, feathered dinosaurs and ancient murals; the private laboratory???s quirky scientists have been quite busy, indeed. The reason? Katya, Xavier, Todd, and colleagues are on a singular scientific mission: to surpass the limits of modern physics and unlock the power of time travel. Their early experiments have proved a resounding success, taking them to farflung places in both time and space, from nineteenthcentury New York to ancient Thera. But as their research progresses, the stakes get ever higher. Enter a world of competing interests and conflicting timelines, where nothing is quite what it seems. Why is Xavier acting so oddly? Where exactly did their eccentric benefactor Mila van Dijk get her wealth? What is the Primus Imperium, and what does its mysterious head???known only as ???The Ambassador??????want from them? Come along as the colleagues at ChronoCorp and their ragtag allies race to sew up several unravelling timelines, battling those who would harm them in the past and present to preserve what is left of their future

Title  Modified Gravity and Cosmology : An Update by the CANTATA Network 
Author(s)  Saridakis, Emmanuel N;Lazkoz, Ruth;Salzano, Vincenzo;Moniz, Paulo Vargas;Capozziello, Salvatore;Beltr??n Jim??nez, Jose;De Laurentis, Mariafelicia;Olmo, Gonzalo J 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XXVII, 629 p. 62 illus., 58 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  With a focus on modified gravity this book presents a review of the recent developments in the fields of gravity and cosmology, presenting the state of the art, highlighting the open problems, and outlining the directions of future research. General Relativity and the ??CDM framework are currently the standard lore and constitute the concordance paradigm of cosmology. Nevertheless, longstanding open theoretical issues, as well as possible new observational ones arising from the explosive development of cosmology in the last two decades, offer the motivation and lead a large amount of research to be devoted in constructing various extensions and modifications. In this review all extended theories and scenarios are first examined under the light of theoretical consistency, and are then applied in various geometrical backgrounds, such as the cosmological and the spherical symmetric ones. Their predictions at both the background and perturbation levels, and concerning cosmology at early, intermediate and late times, are then confronted with the huge amount of observational data that astrophysics and cosmology has been able to offer in the last two decades. Theories, scenarios and models that successfully and efficiently pass the above steps are classified as viable and are candidates for the description of Nature, allowing readers to get a clear overview of the state of the art and where the field of modified gravity is likely to go. This work was performed in the framework of the COST European Action ???Cosmology and Astrophysics Network for Theoretical Advances and Training Actions???  CANTATA

Title  Effects of Nonlocality in Gravity and Quantum Theory 
Author(s)  Boos, Jens 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XIX, 210 p. 37 illus., 33 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis is devoted to the systematic study of nonlocal theories that respect Lorentz invariance and are devoid of new, unphysical degrees of freedom. Such theories are attractive for phenomenological applications since they are mostly unconstrained by current experiments. Nonlocality has played an increasingly important role in the physics of the last decades, appearing in effective actions in quantum field theory, and arising naturally in string theory and noncommutative geometry. It may even be a necessary ingredient for quantum theories of gravity. It is a feature of quantum entanglement, and may even solve the longstanding black hole information loss problem. ???Nonlocality??? is a broad concept with many promising and fruitful applications in theoretical and mathematical physics. After a historical and pedagogical introduction into the concept of nonlocality the author develops the notion of nonlocal Green functions to study various nonlocal weakfield problems in quantum mechanics, quantum field theory, gravity, and quantum field theory in curved spacetime. This thesis fills a gap in the literature by providing a selfcontained exploration of weakfield effects in nonlocal theories, thereby establishing a ???nonlocal intuition??? which may serve as a stepping stone for studies of the full, nonlinear problem of nonlocality

Title  Supergravity : From First Principles to Modern Applications 
Author(s)  Dall'Agata, Gianguido;Zagermann, Marco 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2021. 
Description  XIV, 294 p. 10 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is about supergravity, which combines the principles of general relativity and local gauge invariance with the idea of supersymmetries between bosonic and fermionic degrees of freedom. The authors give a thorough and pedagogical introduction to the subject suitable for beginning graduate or advanced undergraduate students in theoretical high energy physics or mathematical physics. Interested researchers working in these or related areas are also addressed. The level of the presentation assumes a working knowledge of general relativity and basic notions of differential geometry as well as some familiarity with global supersymmetry in relativistic field theories. Bypassing curved superspace and other more technical approaches, the book starts from the simple idea of supersymmetry as a local gauge symmetry and derives the mathematical and physical properties of supergravity in a direct and ???minimalistic??? way, using a combination of explicit computations and geometrical reasoning. Key topics include spinors in curved spacetime, pure supergravity with and without a cosmological constant, matter couplings in global and local supersymmetry, phenomenological and cosmological implications, extended supergravity, gauged supergravity and supergravity in higher spacetime dimensions

Title  Geometric Approaches to Quantum Field Theory 
Author(s)  Finn, Kieran 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XIX, 202 p. 7 illus., 6 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The ancient Greeks believed that everything in the Universe should be describable in terms of geometry. This thesis takes several steps towards realising this goal by introducing geometric descriptions of systems such as quantum gravity, fermionic particles and the origins of the Universe itself. The author extends the applicability of previous work by Vilkovisky, DeWitt and others to include theories with spin ?? and spin 2 degrees of freedom. In addition, he introduces a geometric description of the potential term in a quantum field theory through a process known as the Eisenhart lift. Finally, the methods are applied to the theory of inflation, where they show how geometry can help answer a longstanding question about the initial conditions of the Universe. This publication is aimed at graduate and advanced undergraduate students and provides a pedagogical introduction to the exciting topic of field space covariance and the complete geometrization of quantum field theory

Title  Deformations of Spacetime Symmetries : Gravity, GroupValued Momenta, and NonCommutative Fields 
Author(s)  Arzano, Michele;KowalskiGlikman, Jerzy 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2021. 
Description  XIII, 192 p. 10 illus., 8 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This monograph provides an introduction to deformations of Poincar?? symmetries focusing on models with a Lie group momentum space and associated noncommutative spacetimes. The emphasis is put on the emergence of such structures from quantum gravity, their mathematical features described in terms of Hopf algebras and applications to particle kinematics and field theory. Part I of this work focuses on the link between gravity and deformed symmetries in the case of 2+1 and 3+1 spacetime dimensions. Part II is devoted to the description of classical particles with group valued momenta, their phase spaces and kinematics. The last part of these notes provides an introduction to the basic features of classical and quantum field theory on ??Minkowski spacetime, the prototypical example of noncommutative spacetime exhibiting deformed Poincar?? symmetry. The text, being the first providing a detailed overview of these topics, is primarily intended for researchers and graduate students interested in noncommutative field theories and quantum gravity phenomenology

Title  High Energy Cosmic Rays 
Author(s)  Stanev, Todor 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XVI, 342 p. 162 illus., 20 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book on highenergy cosmic rays deals in its first part with the standard model of cosmic rays, describing how they are born in a wide range of cosmic processes, how they are accelerated and how they interact with matter, magnetic fields and radiation during their journey across the Galaxy. In its second part the book presents contemporary challenges in very high energy cosmic rays, with focus on their detection in the Earth???s atmosphere and underground, as well as new developments in gammaray and neutrino astronomy. A decade after the publication of the second edition of this book, there are many new experimental results in the fields of high energy neutrino astronomy and in the whole energy range of detection of gammarays. There have also been many attempts for studies for multimessenger events in these and all other fields. These new experimental efforts and their results are covered in this third edition. This is accompanied by a general analysis of these new results and the additional knowledge that they bring to our understanding of cosmic rays and their propagation in our Galaxy and extragalactic space. A large part of the interpretation of these new findings is related to the development of the hadronic interaction models that we use to understand and describe the experimental results. The author describes the relation between the new high energy physics experiments and such models. In addition to the discussion of new research, descriptions and graphs of the previous edition have been updated where appropriate. The third edition ends with a discussion of some possible and already planned experiments for future observations and an explanation of their importance for the better understanding of all processes that lead to the increase of our knowledge of high energy cosmic rays. Students and lecturers of advanced undergraduate courses on cosmic rays and astroparticle physics as well as postgraduates and researchers will continue to find this book a valuable source of learning and reference

Title  The Interaction of Spin with Gravity in Particle Physics : Low Energy Quantum Gravity 
Author(s)  Lambiase, Gaetano;Papini, Giorgio 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XV, 190 p. 12 illus., 7 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book seeks to present a new way of thinking about the interaction of gravitational fields with quantum systems. Despite the massive amounts of research and experimentation, the myriad meetings, seminars and conferences, all of the articles, treatises and books, and the seemingly endless theorization, quantization and just plain speculation that have been engaged in regarding our evolving understanding of the quantum world, that world remains an enigma, even to the experts. The usefulness of general relativity in this regard has proven to be imperfect at best, but there is a new approach. We do not simply have to accept the limitations of Einstein's most celebrated theorem in regard to quantum theory; we can also embrace them, and thereby utilize them, to reveal new facts about the behavior of quantum systems within inertial and gravitational fields, and therefore about the very structure of space???time at the quantum level. By taking existing knowledge of the essential functionality of spin (along with the careful identification of the omnipresent inertial effects) and applying it to the quantum world, the book gives the reader a much clearer picture of the difference between the classical and quantum behaviors of a particle, shows that Einstein's ideas may not be as incompatible within this realm as many have come to believe, sparks new revelations of the way in which gravity affects quantum systems and brings a new level of efficiency???quantum efficiency, if you will???to the study of gravitational theory
