Title  Astroparticle Physics and Cosmology : Perspectives in the Multimessenger Era 
Author(s)  Mohanty, Subhendra 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XIX, 287 p. 31 illus., 27 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Cosmology and astroparticle physics have seen an avalanche of discoveries in the past decade (IceCube  high energy neutrinos, LIGO  gravitational waves, Fermi gammaray telescope, Xenon1T  dark matter detection, PLANCK cosmic microwave radiation, EHT picture of black hole, SDSS galaxy surveys), all of which require a multidisciplinary background for analyzing the phenomena. The arena for testing particle physics models is in the multimessenger astronomical observations and at the same time cosmology now requires a particle physics basis for explaining many phenomena. This book discusses the theoretical tools of particle physics and general relativity which are essential for understanding and correlating diverse astronomical observations

Title  Reheating After Inflation 
Author(s)  Lozanov, Kaloian 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  IX, 92 p. 15 illus., 13 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a pedagogical introduction to the rapidly growing field of reheating after inflation. It begins with a brief review of the inflationary paradigm and a motivation for why the reheating of the universe is an integral part of inflationary cosmology. It then goes on to survey different aspects of reheating in a chronological manner, starting from the young, empty and cold universe at the end of inflation, and going all the way to the hot and thermal universe at the beginning of the Big Bang nucleosynthesis epoch. Different particle production mechanisms are considered with a focus on the nonperturbative excitation of scalar fields at the beginning of reheating (fermionic and vector fields are also discussed). This is followed by a review of the subsequent nonlinear dynamical processes, such as soliton formation and relativistic turbulence. Various thermalization processes are also discussed. High energy physics embeddings of phenomenological models as well as observational implications of reheating such as gravitational waves generation and imprints on the cosmic microwave background are also covered

Title  Three Lectures on Complexity and Black Holes 
Author(s)  Susskind, Leonard 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  VIII, 100 p. 85 illus., 80 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  These three lectures cover a certain aspect of complexity and black holes, namely the relation to the second law of thermodynamics. The first lecture describes the meaning of quantum complexity, the analogy between entropy and complexity, and the second law of complexity. Lecture two reviews the connection between the second law of complexity and the interior of black holes. Prof. L. Susskind discusses how firewalls are related to periods of nonincreasing complexity which typically only occur after an exponentially long time. The final lecture is about the thermodynamics of complexity, and ???uncomplexity??? as a resource for doing computational work. The author explains the remarkable power of ???one clean qubit,??? in both computational terms and in spacetime terms. This book is intended for graduate students and researchers who want to take the first steps towards the mysteries of black holes and their complexity

Title  Turbulent Heating and Anisotropy in the Solar Wind : A Numerical Study 
Author(s)  MontagudCamps, Victor 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XVII, 123 p. 45 illus., 13 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents two important new findings. First, it demonstrates from first principles that turbulent heating offers an explanation for the nonadiabatic decay of proton temperature in solar wind. Until now, this was only proved with reduced or phenomenological models. Second, the book demonstrates that the two types of anisotropy of turbulent fluctuations that are observed in solar wind at 1AU originate not only from two distinct classes of conditions near the Sun but also from the imbalance in Alfv??n wave populations. These anisotropies do not affect the overall turbulent heating if we take into account the relation observed in solar wind between anisotropy and Alfv??n wave imbalance. In terms of the methods used to obtain these achievements, the author shows the need to find a very delicate balance between turbulent decay and expansion losses, so as to directly solve the magnetohydrodynamic equations, including the wind expansion effects.

Title  BigBang Nucleosynthesis : Thermonuclear History in the Early Universe 
Author(s)  Hashimoto, Masaaki;Nakamura, Riou;Thushari, E. P. Berni Ann;Arai, Kenzo 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2018. 
Description  IX, 84 p. 39 illus., 25 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book reviews theories of nucleosynthesis in bigbang cosmology. It introduces the standard model of cosmology, astronuclear reactions, numerical techniques for nucleosynethsis, and describes in detail the theories that go beyond the standard models, enabling readers to grasp the physics of bigbang nucleosynthesis on the basis of cosmology, general relativity and nuclear physics. In addition, the authors provide insights into the theoretical constrains required by observations. As a consequence, readers find out that bigbang nucleosynthesis still has windows opened to another cosmology. Although the book focuses on highly advanced topics, it is concisely written and mathematical derivations are explained stepbystep, making it accessible to graduate readers. Thus it is a short monograph appealing to a variety of readers interested in nucleosynthesis of bigbang cosmology

Title  Saturation of the fmode Instability in Neutron Stars 
Author(s)  Pnigouras, Pantelis 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XXIII, 220 p. 31 illus., 21 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents a study of the saturation of unstable fmodes (fundamental modes) due to loworder nonlinear mode coupling. Since their theoretical prediction in 1934, neutron stars have remained among the most challenging objects in the Universe. Gravitational waves emitted by unstable neutron star oscillations can be used to obtain information about their inner structure, that is, the equation of state of dense nuclear matter. After its initial growth phase, the instability is expected to saturate due to nonlinear effects. The saturation amplitude of the unstable mode determines the detectability of the generated gravitationalwave signal, but also affects the evolution of the neutron star. The study shows that the unstable (parent) mode resonantly couples to pairs of stable (daughter) modes, which drain the parent???s energy and make it saturate via a mechanism called parametric resonance instability. Further, it calculates the saturation amplitude of the most unstable fmode multipoles throughout their socalled instability windows

Title  Illuminating Dark Matter : Proceedings of a Simons Symposium 
Author(s)  Essig, Rouven;Feng, Jonathan;Zurek, Kathryn 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XII, 165 p. 54 illus., 49 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Based on a Simons Symposium held in 2018, the proceedings in this volume focus on the theoretical, numerical, and observational quest for dark matter in the universe. Present groundbased and satellite searches have so far severely constrained the longproposed theoretical models for dark matter. Nevertheless, there is continuously growing astrophysical and cosmological evidence for its existence. To address present and future developments in the field, novel ideas, theories, and approaches are called for. The symposium gathered together a new generation of experts pursuing innovative, more complex theories of dark matter than previously considered.This is being done hand in hand with experts in numerical astrophysical simulations and observational techniques???all paramount for deciphering the nature of dark matter. The proceedings volume provides coverage of the most advanced stage of understanding dark matter in various new frameworks. The collection will be useful for graduate students, postdocs, and investigators interested in cuttingedge research on one of the biggest mysteries of our universe

Title  Understanding the Enrichment of Heavy Elements by the Chemodynamical Evolution Models of Dwarf Galaxies 
Author(s)  Hirai, Yutaka 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2019. 
Description  XV, 135 p. 70 illus., 66 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book addresses the mechanism of enrichment of heavy elements in galaxies, a long standing problem in astronomy. It mainly focuses on explaining the origin of heavy elements by performing stateoftheart, highresolution hydrodynamic simulations of dwarf galaxies. In this book, the author successfully develops a model of galactic chemodynamical evolution by means of which the neutron star mergers can be used to explain the observed abundance pattern of the heavy elements synthesized by the rapid neutron capture process, such as europium, gold, and uranium in the Local Group dwarf galaxies. The book argues that heavy elements are significant indicators of the evolutionary history of the early galaxies, and presents theoretical findings that open new avenues to understanding the formation and evolution of galaxies based on the abundance of heavy elements in metalpoor stars

Title  Theoretical Fluid Dynamics 
Author(s)  Feldmeier, Achim 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XVI, 569 p. 501 illus., 25 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook gives an introduction to fluid dynamics based on flows for which analytical solutions exist, like individual vortices, vortex streets, vortex sheets, accretions disks, wakes, jets, cavities, shallow water waves, bores, tides, linear and nonlinear freesurface waves, capillary waves, internal gravity waves and shocks. Advanced mathematical techniques ("calculus") are introduced and applied to obtain these solutions, mostly from complex function theory (SchwarzChristoffel theorem and WienerHopf technique), exterior calculus, singularity theory, asymptotic analysis, the theory of linear and nonlinear integral equations and the theory of characteristics. Many of the derivations, so far contained only in research journals, are made available here to a wider public
