Title  Gravitational Waves from a Quantum Field Theory Perspective 
Author(s)  Mohanty, Subhendra 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XV, 266 p. 34 illus., 21 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book treats the subject of gravitational waves (GWs) production in binary stars or blackholes and in the early universe, using tools of quantum field theory which are familiar to graduate students and researchers in particle physics. A special focus is given to the generation of templates of gravitational wave signals from Feynman diagram calculations of transition amplitudes, which interests active researchers in GWs. The book presents field theory concepts, like supersymmetry realized in spinning binaries and softgraviton theorems, that can have practical applications in novel GW signals, like the memory effect. The book also aims at specialists in both GWs and particle physics addressing cosmological models of phase transition and inflation that can be tested in observations at terrestrial and space based interferometers, pulsar timing arrays, and the cosmic microwave anisotropy observations

Author(s)  Riggi, Francesco 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XIII, 367 p. 196 illus., 135 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a complete overview of the development of cosmic ray physics, with historical and educational considerations, from early evidence of the existence of extraterrestrial radiation up to the most recent applications of cosmic ray muons in different aspects of daily life. Many of the original results that contributed to the study of cosmic radiation are presented and discussed, accompanied by bibliographic references, numerous indepth appendices, about 200 illustrations and a large chapter dedicated to the overall impact of cosmic rays. The book includes sections on, among other topics: the debate on the corpuscular or radiative nature of cosmic radiation; the development of early techniques for detecting cosmic particles; the properties and composition of primary and secondary radiation; and the interaction of cosmic muons in matter and a long list of their recent applications, ranging from the muon tomography techniques to the investigation of the stability of civil buildings. The book is addressed to a wide audience, and thus, while it is used for introductory cosmic ray physics courses at the bachelor's or master's level, high school students and teachers involved in educational projects around cosmic rays also benefit from its many historical and educational aspects

Title  ElectroweakInteracting Spin1 Dark Matter and Its Phenomenology 
Author(s)  Fujiwara, Motoko 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2023. 
Description  XIV, 97 p. 15 illus., 10 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers construction of a renormalizable effective theory of electroweakinteracting spin1 dark matter (DM). The effective theory realizes minimal but essential features of DM predicted in extradimension models, and enables to systematically treat nonperturbative corrections such as the Sommerfeld effects. Deriving an annihilation cross section including the Sommerfeld effects based on the effective theory, the author discusses the future sensitivity of observations to gammaray from the Galactic Center. As a result, the author explains the monochromatic gammaray signatures originate from two photons (????) or photon and Z boson (??Z) produced in the process of DM annihilations, and concludes a possible scenario that unstable neutral spin1 particles (Z???) appear and results in a spectral peak in addition to the one caused by ???? and ??Z channels in gammaray observations. If those two spectral peaks are observed, the masses of spin1 DM and Z??? would be reconstructed

Title  Physics of Gravitational Waves : Sources and Detection Methods 
Author(s)  Kenath, Arun;Sivaram, Chandra 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  VIII, 56 p. 7 illus., 3 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a concise introduction to the physics of gravitational waves. It is aimed at graduatelevel students and PhD scholars. Ever since the discovery of gravitational waves in 2016, gravitational wave astronomy has been adding to our understanding of the universe. Gravitational waves have been detected in the past few years from several transient events such as merging stellarmass black holes, binary neutron stars, etc. These waves have frequencies in a band ranging from a few hundred hertz to around a kilohertz to which LIGO type instruments are sensitive. LISA will be sensitive to much lower range of frequencies from SMBH mergers. Apart from these cataclysmic burst events, there are innumerable sources of radiation which are continuously emitting gravitational waves of all frequencies. These include a whole mass range of compact binary and isolated compact objects and close planetary stellar entities. This book discusses the gravitational wave backgroundproduced in typical frequency ranges from such sources emitting over a Hubble time and the fluctuations in the h values measured in the usual devices. Also discussed are the highfrequency thermal background gravitational radiation from hot stellar interiors and newly formed compact objects. The reader will also learn how gravitational waves provide a testing tool for various theories of gravity, i.e. general relativity and extended theories of gravity, and will be the definitive test for general relativity

Title  A New Generation of Cosmic Superstring Simulations 
Author(s)  Correira, Jos?? Ricardo C. C. C 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2023. 
Description  XIV, 192 p. 62 illus., 61 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Topological defects are an expected consequence of phase transitions in the early Universe. As such these objects, if detected, provide unequivocal evidence of physics beyond the Standard Model. This means they are prime targets for new observational facilities. However, our understanding of defects is heavily bottlenecked by computational limitations. In this book, the author explores the use of accelerator hardware to alleviate this problem, presenting the world???s first (multiple)GPU defect simulations. Such simulations can evolve a network of linelike cosmic strings at an unprecedented resolution. Then these are used to obtain the most accurate to date calibrations of semianalytical modelling and to show the impact of accuracy on observational consequences of strings. Lastly, a modified version of this application is used to study interconnected networks of strings in greater detail than ever before. This book benefits any student or researcher who wishes to learn aboutfield theory simulations in the early Universe and about supercomputing with multiple accelerators

Title  Dark Energy : From EFTs to Supergravity 
Author(s)  Cunillera, Francesc 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Switzerland, 2023. 
Description  XVII, 220 p. 22 illus., 11 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book addresses supergravity and supergravitymotivated effective field theories in the context of cosmological model building. Extracting information about quintessence from string theory has attracted much attention in the past few years. The question became more urgent very recently after the possibility of obtaining de Sitter space was called into question. Therefore, there is an interesting debate as to whether de Sitter space or, even, quintessence can be derived from a fundamental theory, string theory or otherwise. This is a very active field of research, and the topics covered in the book render this work very timely. Throughout the book, special care has been taken in demonstrating historical relevance of the field and describing the set of open questions motivating the stateoftheart research. The first few chapters in each part provide a detailed review of standard perturbative and nonperturbative techniques in supergravity model building, as a way to preparethe reader for the more technical and original subsequent chapters. These early chapters also represent a selfcontained review that would be useful for anyone planning to enter this challenging area of study. The subsequent chapters detail research in supergravitymotivated effective field theories, in the first part, and supergravity models, in the second part. One of the important conclusions in this book is that modelling quintessence in perturbative string theory is at least as challenging as modelling de Sitter, placing the wider programme on a collision course with observations
