TitleCelestial messengers: Cosmic Rays: The Story of a Scientific Adventure
Author(s)Mario Bertolotti
PublicationBerlin, Springer-Verlag, 2013.
Descriptionxiv, 330p.
Abstract NoteThe book describes from a historical point of view how cosmic rays were discovered. The book describes the research in cosmic rays. The main focus is on how the knowledge was gained, describing the main experiments and the conclusions drawn. Biographical sketches of main researchers are provided. Cosmic rays have an official date of discovery which is linked to the famous balloon flights of the Austrian physicist Hess in 1912. The year 2012 can therefore be considered the centenary of the discovery.

TitleFirst galaxies: Theoretical Predictions and Observational Clues
Author(s)Tommy Wiklind (ed.);Bahram Mobasher (ed.);Volker Bromm (ed.)
PublicationBerlin, Springer-Verlag, 2013.
Descriptionx, 429p.
Series(Astrophysics and Space Science Library)
Abstract NoteThis volume brings together leading experts in the field to discuss our current level of understanding and what may come in the near future as our observational as well as theoretical tools improve. The book confronts the theory of how the first stars, black holes, and galaxies formed with current and planned observations. This synthesis is very timely, just ahead of the establishment of major new facilities, such as the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), a next-generation, millimeter/sub-millimeter observatory in the Atacama desert (ALMA), and ground-based Extremely Large Telescopes (ELT). Together, they will revolutionize the study of the most distant objects in the Universe.

TitleStellar pulsations: Impact of New Instrumentation and New Insights
Author(s)J. C. Suarez (ed.);R. Garrido (ed.);L. A. Balona (ed.);J. Christensen-Dalsgaard (ed.)
PublicationBerlin, Springer-Verlag, 2012.
Descriptionxvii, 293p.
Series(Astrophysics and Space Science Proceedings)
Abstract NoteAnalyses of photometric time series obtained from the MOST, CoRoT and Kepler space missions were presented at the 20th conference on Stellar Pulsations (Granada, September 2011). These results are leading to a re-appraisal of our views on stellar pulsation in some stars and posing some new and unexpected challenges. The very important and exciting role played by innovative ground-based observational techniques, such as interferometric measurements of giant pulsating stars and high-resolution spectroscopy in the near infrared, is also discussed. These Proceedings are distinguished by the format of the conference, which brings together a variety of related but different topics not found in other meetings of this nature.

TitleSynthesis of the elements: The Astrophysical Quest for Nucleosynthesis and What It Can tell Us About the Universe
Author(s)Giora Shaviv
PublicationBerlin, Springer-Verlag, 2012.
Descriptionxxii, 684p.
Series(Astrophysics and Space Science Library)
Abstract NoteThis book describes the origins and evolution of the chemical elements we and the cosmos are made of. The story starts with the discovery of the common elements on Earth and their subsequent discovery in space. How do we learn the composition of the distant stars? How did progress in quantum theory, nuclear physics, spectroscopy, stellar structure and evolution, together with observations of stars, converge to provide an incredibly detailed picture of the universe? How does research in the micro-world explain the macro-world? How does progress in one affect the other, or lack of knowledge in one inhibit progress in the other? In short, Shaviv describes how we discovered the various pieces of the jigsaw that form our present picture of the universe; and how we sometimes put these in the wrong place before finding in the right one.

TitleComplex and adaptive dynamical systems: A Primer
Author(s)Claudius Gros
Edition2nd.
PublicationBerlin, Springer-Verlag, 2011.
Descriptionxiv, 325p.
Abstract NoteThis primer has been developed with the aim of conveying a wide range of "commons-sense" knowledge in the field of quantitative complex system science at an introductory level, providing an entry point to this both fascinating and vitally important subject. The approach is modular and phenomenology driven. Examples of emerging phenomena of generic importance treated in this book are: -- The small world phenomenon in social and scale-free networks. -- Phase transitions and self-organized criticality in adaptive systems. -- Life at the edge of chaos and coevolutionary avalanches resulting from the unfolding of all living. -- The concept of living dynamical systems and emotional diffusive control within cognitive system theory.

TitleDense matter in compact stars: A Pedagogical Introduction
Author(s)Andreas Schmitt
PublicationBerlin, 1. Springer 2. Springer-Verlag, 2010.
Descriptionx, 147p.
Series(Lecture note in physics)
Abstract NoteThe purpose of these lectures is to address the following two strongly coupled issues: • What is the ground state (and its properties) of dense (quark) matter? • What is the matter composition of a compact star? In order to fulfill their primary goal - to remain both concise and accessible to the beginning graduate student or other newcomers to the field - the only prerequisites are a working knowledge of statistical mechanics and thermodynamics as well as a first course in quantum field theory. More advanced material will be introduced as the text progresses and an appendix covers basic elements of thermal quantum field theory at finite chemical potential. Instead of developing all relevant formal tools (which is not even fully possible in the regime of QCD considered here), calculations are physically motivated, making the reader familiar with the theories and technicalities by “learning by doing”. In this way these lectures will guide and prepare the reader towards further investigations and own theoretical research in this exciting field at the interface of nuclear, particle and astrophysics.

TitlePhysics of the Manhattan project
Author(s)B. Cameron Reed
Edition2nd.
PublicationBerlin, 1. Springer 2. Springer-Verlag, 2011.
Descriptionxiii, 170p.
Abstract NoteThe development of nuclear weapons during the Manhattan Project is one of the most significant scientific events of the twentieth century. This book, prepared by a gifted teacher of physics, explores the challenges that faced the members of the Manhattan project. In doing so it gives a clear introduction to fission weapons at the level of an upper-level undergraduate physics student. Details of nuclear reactions, their energy release, the fission process, how critical masses can be estimated, how fissile materials are produced, and what factors complicate bomb design are covered. An extensive list of references and a number of problems for self-study are included. Links are given to several spreadsheets with which users can run many of the calculations for themselves.

TitleSymmetries and group theory in particle physics: An Introduction to Space-time and Internal Symmetries
Author(s)Giovanni Costa;Gianluigi Fogli
PublicationBerlin, Springer-Verlag, 2012.
Descriptionxiii, 291p.
Series(Lecture note in physics)
Abstract NoteSymmetries, coupled with the mathematical concept of group theory, are an essential conceptual backbone in the formulation of quantum field theories capable of describing the world of elementary particles. This primer is an introduction to and survey of the underlying concepts and structures needed in order to understand and handle these powerful tools. Specifically, in Part I of the book the symmetries and related group theoretical structures of the Minkowskian space-time manifold are analyzed, while Part II examines the internal symmetries and their related unitary groups, where the interactions between fundamental particles are encoded as we know them from the present standard model of particle physics. This book, based on several courses given by the authors, addresses advanced graduate students and non-specialist researchers wishing to enter active research in the field, and having a working knowledge of classical field theory and relativistic quantum mechanics. Numerous end-of-chapter problems and their solutions will facilitate the use of this book as self-study guide or as course book for topical lectures.
