TitleDust-Gas Instabilities in Protoplanetary Disks : Toward Understanding Planetesimal Formation
Author(s)Tominaga, Ryosuke
PublicationSingapore, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2022.
DescriptionXII, 116 p. 42 illus., 36 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteHow planets form is one of the long-standing questions in astrophysics. In particular, formation scenarios of planetesimals which are kilometer-sized 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

TitleLaser Power Stabilization via Radiation Pressure
Author(s)Trad Nery, Marina
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2022.
DescriptionXIX, 154 p. 81 illus., 79 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis 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 micro-oscillator 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 proof-of-principle 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

TitleUniversal Relations for Binary Neutron Star Mergers with Long-lived Remnants
Author(s)Manoharan, Praveen
PublicationWiesbaden, 1. Imprint: Springer Spektrum 2. Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden, 2022.
DescriptionXIV, 65 p. 20 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteIn 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 pre-merger neutron stars to stellar parameters of the post-merger object, mostly driven by numerical relativity simulations. In this thesis a first attempt at perturbatively deriving universal relations for binary neutron star mergers with long-lived neutron star remnants is presented. The author succeeds in confirming previous results relating pre-merger binary tidal deformabilities to the f-mode frequency of the post-merger object. Combining this result with recent advances of computing the f-mode frequency of fast rotating neutron stars, he also derives a combined relation that relates the pre-merger binary tidal deformability of a BNS to the effective compactness of a long-lived neutron star remnant. Finally, he also proposes a direct relation between these quantities with improved accuracy.

TitleSupernovae, Neutron Star Physics and Nucleosynthesis
Author(s)Bandyopadhyay, Debades;Kar, Kamales
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2022.
DescriptionXVII, 207 p. 41 illus., 29 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis 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 multi-messenger 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

TitleGeneral Relativity and Gravitational Waves : Essentials of Theory and Practice
Author(s)Dhurandhar, Sanjeev;Mitra, Sanjit
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2022.
DescriptionXIV, 207 p. 32 illus., 16 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis 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 multi-disciplinary 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

DescriptionXI, 291 p. 127 illus., 86 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis book provides a detailed, state-of-the-art overview of key observational and theoretical aspects of the rapidly developing and highly interdisciplinary field of exoplanet science, as viewed through the lenses of eight world-class experts. It equips readers with a broad understanding of the complex processes driving the formation and the physical and dynamical evolution of planetary systems. It juxtaposes theoretical modeling with the host of techniques that are unveiling the exceptional variety of observed properties of close-in and wide-separation extrasolar planets. By effectively linking ingenious interpretative analyses to the main factors shaping planetary populations, the book ultimately provides the most coherent picture to date of the demographics of exoplanetary systems. It is an essential reference for Ph.D. students and early-stage career researchers, while the scope and depth of its source material also provide excellent cues for graduate-level courses
