TitleMicroscopic Foundations of Relativistic Fluid Dynamics
Author(s)Denicol, Gabriel S;Rischke, Dirk H
PublicationCham, Springer International Publishing, 2021.
DescriptionXVI, 292 p. 35 illus., 24 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book provides an introduction to relativistic dissipative fluid dynamics, with particular emphasis on its derivation from microscopic transport theory. After a phenomenological derivation of relativistic dissipative fluid dynamics from the second law of thermodynamics, the intrinsic instabilities of relativistic Navier-Stokes theory are discussed. In turn, analytical solutions of relativistic dissipative fluid dynamics are presented. Following, the authors discuss several theories and approaches to derive transport coefficients in dissipative fluid dynamics such as the Chapman-Enskog theory, the theory of Israel and Stewart, and a more recent derivation of relativistic dissipative fluid dynamics based on kinetic theory, which constitutes the main focus of the second part of this book. This book is intended for advanced graduate students and researchers in physics and requires basic knowledge of the theory of special and general relativity. It should be of particular interest to researchers that apply relativistic fluid dynamics in cosmology, astrophysics, and high-energy nuclear physics

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

TitleGlobal Energetics of the Atmosphere : Earth???Atmosphere Equilibrium, Greenhouse Effect, and Climate Change
Author(s)Smirnov, Boris M
PublicationCham, Springer International Publishing, 2021.
DescriptionXXIV, 301 p. 125 illus., 55 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book looks at global atmospheric processes from a physical standpoint using available current and past observational data taken from measurements of relevant atmospheric parameters. It describes various aspects of the current atmospheric state and its future evolution, focusing primarily on the energetic balance of the Earth and atmosphere, and taking into consideration the multi-faceted global equilibrium between these two systems, carbon, and water. The analysis presented in this book restricts itself to those objects and processes that allow us to obtain reliable conclusions and numerical estimations, in contrast to current climate models with much larger numbers of parameters for describing the same problems. As a result, in spite of the roughness of numerical parameters, the book unveils a reliable and transparent physical picture of energetic phenomena in the global atmosphere. In particular, it shows that approximately only one-fourth of atmospheric water returns from the atmosphere to the Earth in the form of free molecules. It was shown that the contemporary warming of our planet has an anthropogenic character, and that the average global temperature increases due to an increase of the concentration of atmospheric CO2 molecules, via an increase in atmospheric moisture, as well as an increase in the amount of aerosols in the atmosphere. Accumulation of atmospheric carbon dioxide plays a subsidiary role in this process and gives approximately one-third in a change of the global temperature, while an increase in the amount of atmospheric water by as little as only 0.3% per year explains the observed warming of the Earth. The book shows how the greenhouse instability of the atmosphere evidently has its origins in the Eocene epoch, presenting an analysis of the influence of various types of global energetic processes on the climate that differs from the official stance on these problems

TitleTensor Analysis for Engineers and Physicists - With Application to Continuum Mechanics, Turbulence, and Einstein???s Special and General Theory of Relativity
Author(s)Schobeiri, Meinhard T
PublicationCham, Springer International Publishing, 2021.
DescriptionXIX, 241 p. 72 illus., 29 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book unies the common tensor analytical aspects in engineering and physics. Using tensor analysis enables the reader to understand complex physical phenomena from the basic principles in continuum mechanics including the turbulence, its correlations and modeling to the complex Einstein' tensor equation. The development of General Theory of Relativity and the introduction of spacetime geometry would not have been possible without the use of tensor analysis. This textbook is primarily aimed at students of mechanical, electrical, aerospace, civil and other engineering disciplines as well as of theoretical physics. It also covers the special needs of practicing professionals who perform CFD-simulation on a routine basis and would like to know more about the underlying physics of the commercial codes they use. Furthermore, it is suitable for self-study, provided that the reader has a sufficient knowledge of differential and integral calculus. Particular attention was paid to selecting the application examples. The transformation of Cartesian coordinate system into curvilinear one and the subsequent applications to conservation laws of continuum mechanics and the turbulence physics prepares the reader for fully understanding the Einstein tensor equations, which exhibits one of the most complex tensor equation in theoretical physics

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

DescriptionXVI, 171 p. 158 illus., 146 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book presents state-of-the-art millimetre wave antennas for next generation 5G communications. The propagation losses associated with the millimetre waves and the signal blockage due to the objects present between transmitter and receiver require novel antenna topologies to address these issues. Various aspects of antenna design related to millimetre wave 5G communication including 28-GHz channel characteristics, mmWave antenna requirements, antenna design strategies for 28 GHz, MIMO/multibeam antennas, and mmWave lens antennas are highlighted. Apart from the general antenna requirements and study related to the 28 GHz frequency band, various new metamaterial-based antennas employing uniaxial or biaxial anisotropic media that enhance the antenna radiation performance are covered in detail. In addition, various new antenna systems such as wide-scan antenna arrays, dual-polarized antennas, and dual-beam/multibeam antennas are covered in this book. The book concludes with the glimpses of the millimetre wave lens antennas and the design of very thin planar metamaterial lens for 5G massive MIMO applications
