Title  DustGas Instabilities in Protoplanetary Disks : Toward Understanding Planetesimal Formation 
Author(s)  Tominaga, Ryosuke 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2022. 
Description  XII, 116 p. 42 illus., 36 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  How planets form is one of the longstanding questions in astrophysics. In particular, formation scenarios of planetesimals which are kilometersized bodies and a precursor of planets are still unclear and under debate although some promising mechanisms have been proposed. This book highlight disk instabilities that have the potential to explain the origin of planetesimals. Using linear analyses and numerical simulations, it addresses how a disk evolves through the development of instabilities, and also presents a new instability driven by dust coagulation. As a result, the simulation demonstrates a scenario of planetesimal formation: A successive development of multiple instabilities triggers planetesimal formation in resulting dusty rings

Title  Laser Power Stabilization via Radiation Pressure 
Author(s)  Trad Nery, Marina 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XIX, 154 p. 81 illus., 79 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers a comprehensive and complete description of a new scheme to stabilize the power of a laser on a level needed for high precision metrology experiments. The novel aspect of the scheme is sensing power fluctuations via the radiation pressure driven motion they induce on a microoscillator mirror. It is shown that the proposed technique can result in higher signals for power fluctuations than what is achieved by a direct power detection, and also that it enables the generation of a strong bright squeezed beam. The book starts with the basics of power stabilization and an overview on the current state of art. Then, detailed theoretical calculations are performed, and the advantages of the new scheme are highlighted. Finally, a proofofprinciple experiment is described and its results are analyzed in details. The success of the work presented here paves a way for achieving high power stability in future experiments and is of interest for high precision metrology experiments, like gravitational wave detectors, and optomechanical experiments. Nominated as an outstanding PhD thesis by the Gravitational Wave International Committee

Title  Universal Relations for Binary Neutron Star Mergers with Longlived Remnants 
Author(s)  Manoharan, Praveen 
Publication  Wiesbaden, 1. Imprint: Springer Spektrum
2. Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden, 2022. 
Description  XIV, 65 p. 20 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  In the last 25 years, an extensive body of work has developed various equation of state independent  or (approximately) universal  relations that allow for the inference of neutron star parameters from gravitational wave observations. These works, however, have mostly been focused on singular neutron stars, while our observational efforts at the present, and in the near future, will be focused on binary neutron star (BNS) mergers. In light of these circumstances, the last five years have also given rise to more attempts at developing universal relations that relate BNS premerger neutron stars to stellar parameters of the postmerger object, mostly driven by numerical relativity simulations. In this thesis a first attempt at perturbatively deriving universal relations for binary neutron star mergers with longlived neutron star remnants is presented. The author succeeds in confirming previous results relating premerger binary tidal deformabilities to the fmode frequency of the postmerger object. Combining this result with recent advances of computing the fmode frequency of fast rotating neutron stars, he also derives a combined relation that relates the premerger binary tidal deformability of a BNS to the effective compactness of a longlived neutron star remnant. Finally, he also proposes a direct relation between these quantities with improved accuracy.

Title  Supernovae, Neutron Star Physics and Nucleosynthesis 
Author(s)  Bandyopadhyay, Debades;Kar, Kamales 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVII, 207 p. 41 illus., 29 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book deals with the interdisciplinary areas of nuclear physics, supernovae and neutron star physics. It addresses the physics and astrophysics of the spectacular supernova explosions, starting with the collapse of massive stars and ending with the birth of neutron stars or black holes. Recent progress in the understanding of core collapse supernova (CCSN) and observational aspects of future detections of neutrinos from CCSN explosions are discussed. The other main focus in this text is the novel phases of dense nuclear matter, its compositions and equation of state (EoS) from low to very high baryon density relevant to supernovae and neutron stars. The multimessenger astrophysics of binary neutron star merger GW170817 and its relation to EoS through tidal deformability are also presented in detail. The synthesis of elements heavier than iron in the supernova and neutron star environment by the rapid (r)process are treated here with special emphasis on the nucleosynthesis in the ejected material from GW170817. This monograph is written for graduate students and researchers in the field of nuclear astrophysics

Title  General Relativity and Gravitational Waves : Essentials of Theory and Practice 
Author(s)  Dhurandhar, Sanjeev;Mitra, Sanjit 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XIV, 207 p. 32 illus., 16 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book serves as a textbook for senior undergraduate students who are learning the subject of general relativity and gravitational waves for the first time. Both authors have been teaching the course in various forms for a few decades and have designed the book as a one stop book at basic level including derivations and exercises. A spectacular prediction of general relativity is gravitational waves. Gravitational waves were first detected by the LIGO detectors in 2015, hundred years after their prediction. Both authors are part of the LIGO Science Collaboration and were authors on the discovery paper. Therefore, a strong motivation for this book is to provide the essential concepts of general relativity theory and gravitational waves with their modern applications to students and to researchers who are new to the multidisciplinary field of gravitational wave astronomy. One of the advanced topics covered in this book is the fundamentals of gravitational wave data analysis, filling a gap in textbooks on general relativity. The topic blends smoothly with other chapters in the book not only because of the common area of research, but it uses similar differential geometric and algebraic tools that are used in general relativity
