TitleFrom Geocentric to Heliocentric: How Discoveries Are Made
Author(s)Ge (?????????), Yunbao
PublicationSingapore, Springer Nature Singapore, 2021.
DescriptionXIV, 174 p. 87 illus., 69 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteHas anyone ever seen with their own eyes that the Earth goes around the sun? Even to this day, no one has. However, 500 and even 2000 years ago, some astronomers managed to point out that this is the case. At that time, people???s range of activities was strictly confined, the technology and tools used were extremely primitive, and many of the mathematical methods used today had not been developed. How did those astronomers make and verify this discovery? This book explains this exciting demonstration process. It enables anyone with a basic junior-high-school knowledge of geometry and a certain degree of spatial imagination to understand this and other interesting discoveries in the solar system. By demonstrating this interesting process, the book not satisfies readers curiosity using the simplest mathematics, but also inspires them to explore the new and unknown world

TitleBeam Test Calorimeter Prototypes for the CMS Calorimeter Endcap Upgrade : Qualification, Performance Validation and Fast Generative Modelling
Author(s)Quast, Thorben
PublicationCham, Springer International Publishing, 2021.
DescriptionXXII, 277 p. 144 illus., 140 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThe Standard Model of Particle of Physics (SM), despite its success, still fails to provide explanations for some essential questions such as the nature of dark matter or the overabundance of matter over anti-matter in the universe. Therefore, experimental testing of this theory will remain a cornerstone of particle physics in the upcoming decades. A central approach is via collisions of elementary particles at the highest-possible centre-of-mass energies and rates. At the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), protons are accelerated to up to 7 TeV and are brought to collision 40 million times a second. Characterisation of the particles emerging from these collisions allow one to infer the underlying physical interactions. The particle energies are measured with calorimeters, themselves an integral component of the scientific programme of the LHC and prerequisite for its success. Facing increased radiation levels and more challenging experimental conditions after the upcoming High Luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider, the CMS collaboration will soon replace its current calorimeter endcaps with the High Granularity Calorimeter (HGCAL) in the mid 2020s. This thesis documents two milestones towards the realization of this novel and ambitious calorimeter concept: Prototypes of the silicon-based compartment have been built, operated in particle beam and ultimately its design could be validated. Furthermore, the thesis demonstrates the applicability of a specific set of deep learning algorithms for the generative modelling of granular calorimeter data. Besides the main results themselves, the thesis discusses in detail the associated experimental infrastructure and the underlying data reconstruction strategy and algorithms. It also incorporates short introductions to particle physics at the LHC, to calorimeter concepts and to the CMS HGCAL upgrade

TitleClassical Treatment of Collisions Between Ions and Atoms or Molecules
Author(s)Fr??mont, Francois
PublicationCham, Springer International Publishing, 2021.
DescriptionXII, 242 p. 235 illus., 153 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteSince the beginning of the twentieth century, many experimental and theoretical works have been devoted to collisions between highly charged ions and atomic and molecular targets. It was realized that quantum mechanics is the only way, a priori, to describe such atomic phenomena. However, since quantum mechanics is very difficult to apply for collision systems with more than two particles, classical methods were very soon introduced and applied to simple collision systems and, subsequently, to more complicated systems. The results obtained by such classical methods were found to be surprisingly good, and classical mechanics is now well established, despite its approximations, as a replacement for or competition with quantum mechanics in many cases. In this book, the author will focus on the development of classical methods for describing collisional and post-collisional processes. The results will be compared with those found using quantum mechanical models, in order to demonstrate the ability of the classical approach to obtain many features and details of collision systems

TitleSnow Optics
Author(s)Kokhanovsky, Alexander
PublicationCham, Springer International Publishing, 2021.
DescriptionX, 161 p. 50 illus., 42 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book is the first book of its kind, focusing exclusively on the optical properties of snow. As a complex and turbid medium, snow is approached as a strongly light-scattering (in the visible spectrum) medium with large, nonspherical ice grains. The book discusses both experimental and theoretical results, as well as the remote sensing of snow using ground-based, airborne and satellite optical instrumentation. The book will be of particular importance for researchers studying snow characteristics (the size of grains, snow pollution and albedo) using various remote-sensing techniques

TitleSaving the Starry Night : Light Pollution and Its Effects on Science, Culture and Nature
Author(s)Caraveo, Patrizia
PublicationCham, Springer International Publishing, 2021.
DescriptionIX, 165 p. 42 illus., 37 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book takes a close look at our relationship with the sky, the stars, light and darkness. In particular, it examines how light pollution has interfered with the culture of astronomy and our ability to appreciate this essential facet of our natural world. The sky has always held significance for humanity, in both cultural and scientific terms. And yet we persistently pollute it with (sometimes unnecessary) light in our obsessive desire to chase away the darkness. This effectively switches off the stars, hampering our ability to enjoy one of the most inspiring sights nature has to offer to humankind. In addition, too much light is hazardous to both our health and that of the fauna and flora of this planet. This book also features a comprehensive look at the current controversy regarding efforts to expand internet access through the launch into low Earth orbits of thousands of new satellites, which will pollute the night with moving lights while filling to saturation the capability of the circumterrestrial space. This conflict does not mean that the interests of astronomy and those of space technology have to be at odds, and potential compromises are explored between the satellite initiative and the desire to maintain a dark, radio silent sky
