Title  Covariant Canonical Gauge Gravity 
Author(s)  Vasak, David;Struckmeier, J??rgen;Kirsch, Johannes 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  X, 207 p. 12 illus., 10 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book starts with the mathematical basis of the theory  i.e. provide a brief sketch of the theory of manifolds and frame bundles, tensors and their transformations, relativistic kinematics, and aspects of nonflat spacetime geometries. The definition of relevant physical quantities (torsion, curvature, nonmetricity, tetrads, connection fields etc.) and important geometry concepts are also included. The main body of the book is devoted to a detailed derivation of the gauge theory of gravitation for scalar, vector (Proca and Maxwell) and Dirac spinor fields. Alternative approaches based on the Noether theorem and on the spinorial representation of the fields are also addressed, as well as important novel features related to the CCGG framework (Birkhoff theorem, field derivative identities etc.). In the last section of the volume the application of the CCGG theory to cosmology will be set out, resulting in a new understanding of dark energy and inflation.

Title  Modified and Quantum Gravity : From Theory to Experimental Searches on All Scales 
Author(s)  Pfeifer, Christian;L??mmerzahl, Claus 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XIV, 550 p. 56 illus., 43 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book discusses theoretical predictions and their comparison with experiments of extended and modified classical and quantum theories of gravity. The goal is to provide a readable access and broad overview over different approaches to the topic to graduate and PhD students as well as to young researchers. The book presents both, theoretical and experimental insights and is structured in three parts. The first addresses the theoretical models beyond special and general relativity such as string theory, Poincare gauge theory and teleparallelism as well as Finsler gravity. In turn, the second part is focused on the observational effects that these models generate, accounting for tests and comparisons which can be made on all possible scales: from the universe as a whole via binary systems, stars, black holes, satellite experiments, down to laboratory experiments at micrometer and smaller scales. The last part of this book is dedicated to quantum systems and gravity, showing tests of classical gravity with quantum systems, and coupling of quantum matter and gravity

Title  Instabilities in Field Theory : A Primer with Applications in Modified Gravity 
Author(s)  Delhom, Adri??;Jim??nez Cano, Alejandro;Maldonado Torralba, Francisco Jos?? 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XI, 71 p. 3 illus., 2 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents the most common types of instabilities arising in classical field theories, namely tachyonic, Laplacian, ghostlike or strong coupling instabilities, also commenting on their quantum implications. The authors provide a detailed account on the Ostrogradski theorem and its implications for higherorder timederivative field theories. After presenting the general concepts and formalism, they dive into its applications to particular field theories, using mainly modified gravity theories as examples. The book is intended for advanced undergraduate/graduate students, but can also be useful for researchers, for having a unified exposition of general results on instabilities in field theory and examples of their applications

Title  Imago Cosmi : The Vision of the Cosmos and the History of Astronomical Machines 
Author(s)  Marini, Daniele L. R 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XVIII, 501 p. 192 illus., 131 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book takes the reader on an exploration of the Cosmos, from Mesopotamia and Egypt to China; it unveils the fascinating development of astronomy and mathematics. After an overview of the origins of these subjects, highlighting the contributions of Greek astronomers, the Arab culture, and Copernicus' solar system model, the book delves into the revolutionary work of Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler, Galileo Galilei, and Isaac Newton, leading to a comprehensive understanding of the solar system. Special attention is given to the instruments used by ancient astronomers, including the most important astronomical clocks and planetary machines. In light of this, the author examines Kepler's almost unknown design of a planetary machine and offers an interpretation using virtual reality techniques. The book also highlights the Chinese view of the Cosmos and the evolution of its astronomy and astronomical machines, offering readers a unique perspective and insight into the relationship between astronomy and technology in different cultures. Finally, the author provides a practical approach to understanding the construction and mechanics of astronomical machines, exploring the process of designing and manufacturing a Tellurium. The reading is enriched with short videos of the Tellurium, along with a translation of the description of the planetary machine by Christian Huygens. In addition, it provides a unique glimpse into the religious influences on astronomical studies during the mid1700s through the translation of Johann Albrecht Bengel's book Cyclus. This book is a mustread for anyone interested in the history of science and technology. It appeals to astronomers, mathematicians, physicists, and historians of science and technology alike, providing fascinating descriptions and insightful analysis of the vision of the Cosmos from its earliest conceptions to the present day

Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  1499 illus., 1098 illus. in color. eReference : online resource 
Abstract Note  This handbook is a comprehensive, systematic source of modern nuclear physics. It aims to summarize experimental and theoretical discoveries and an understanding of unstable nuclei and their exotic structures, which were opened up by the development of radioactive ion (RI) beam in the late 1980s. The handbook comprises three major parts. In the first part, the experiments and measured facts are well organized and reviewed. The second part summarizes recognized theories to explain the experimental facts introduced in the first part. Reflecting recent synergistic progress involving both experiment and theory, the chapters both parts are mutually related. The last part focuses on cosmonuclear physics???one of the mainstream subjects in modern nuclear physics. Those comprehensive topics are presented concisely. Supported by introductory reviews, all chapters are designed to present their topics in a manner accessible to readers at the graduate level. The book therefore serves as a valuable source for beginners as well, helping them to learn modern nuclear physics

Title  Regular Black Holes : Towards a New Paradigm of Gravitational Collapse 
Author(s)  Bambi, Cosimo 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  X, 499 p. 71 illus., 47 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Black holes are one of the most fascinating predictions of general relativity. They are the natural product of the complete gravitational collapse of matter and today we have a body of observational evidence supporting the existence of black holes in the Universe. However, general relativity predicts that at the center of black holes there are spacetime singularities, where predictability is lost and standard physics breaks down. It is widely believed that spacetime singularities are a symptom of the limitations of general relativity and must be solved within a theory of quantum gravity. Since we do not have yet any mature and reliable candidate for a quantum gravity theory, researchers have studied toymodels of singularityfree black holes and of singularityfree gravitational collapses in order to explore possible implications of the yet unknown theory of quantum gravity. This book reviews all main models of regular black holes and nonsingular gravitational collapses proposed in the literature, and discuss the theoretical and observational implications of these scenarios
