Title  Covariant Techniques in Quantum Field Theory 
Author(s)  ??lvarez, Enrique;Anero, Jes??s 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  VII, 90 p. 1 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  The purpose of this book is to illustrate some of the most important techniques which are helpful in combinatorial problems when computing quantum effects in covariant theories, like general relativity. In fact, most of the techniques find application also in broader contexts, such as low energy effective (chiral) Lagrangians or even in specific problems in condensed matter. Some of the topics covered are: the background field approach and the heat kernel ideas. The arguments are explained in some detail and the presentation is meant for young researchers and advanced students who are starting working in the field. As prerequisite the reader should have attended a course in quantum field theory including Feynman???s path integral. In the Appendix a nontrivial calculation of oneloop divergences in EinsteinHilbert gravity is explained stepbystep

Title  Emergence in Condensed Matter and Quantum Gravity : A Nontechnical Review 
Author(s)  Musser, George 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XIII, 95 p. 7 illus., 5 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book surveys the science at a semipopular, Scientific Americanlevel. It is evenhanded with regard to competing directions of research and philosophical positions. It is hard to get even two people to agree on anything, yet a million billion water molecules can suddenly and abruptly coordinate to lock themselves into an ice crystal or liberate one another to billow outwards as steam. The marvelous selforganizing capacity of matter is one of the central and deepest puzzles of physics, with implications for all the natural sciences. Physicists in the past century have found a remarkable diversity of phases of matter???and equally remarkable commonalities within that diversity. The pace of discovery has, if anything, only quickened in recent years with the appreciation of quantum phases of matter and socalled topological order. The study of seemingly humdrum materials has made contact with the more exotic realm of quantum gravity, as theorists realize that the spacetime continuum may itself be a phase of some deeper and still unknown constituents. These developments flesh out the sometimes vague concept of the emergence???how exactly it is that complexity begets simplicity

Title  Experimental Gravitation 
Author(s)  Ricci, Fulvio;Bassan, Massimo 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XXII, 430 p. 170 illus., 138 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book features a comprehensive review of experimental gravitation. It is a textbook based on the graduate courses on ???Experimental Gravitation??? given by the authors at their respective universities in Rome: Sapienza and Tor Vergata. A number of different research topics in the field are covered: from the torsion pendulum (still today the tool of choice for measuring small forces or torques) to the large interferometers developed to observe gravitational waves. Techniques that are still under development are also discussed, like the pulsar timing array and spacebased detectors of the future. This book is written by experimentalists for experimentalists. While the background physics is summarized for less experienced readers, the emphasis is certainly on experimental verifications: the strategy, the apparatuses, the data analysis and the results of many cornerstone experiments are analyzed and discussed in depth. This textbook serves as a useful resource for both graduate students and professionals working in the increasingly vibrant field of experimental gravity

Title  Modern Special Relativity : A Student's Guide with Discussions and Examples 
Author(s)  Rafelski, Johann 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XIX, 458 p. 90 illus., 72 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book presents Special Relativity in a language accessible to students while avoiding the burdens of geometry, tensor calculus, spacetime symmetries, and the introduction of four vectors. The search for clarity in the fundamental questions about Relativity, the discussion of historical developments before and after 1905, the strong connection to current research topics, many solved examples and problems, and illustrations of the material in colloquial discussions are the most significant and original assets of this book. Importantly for firsttime students, Special Relativity is presented such that nothing needs to be called paradoxical or apparent; everything is explained. The content of this volume develops and builds on the book Relativity Matters (Springer, 2017). However, this presentation of Special Relativity does not require 4vector tools. The relevant material has been extended and reformulated, with additional examples and clarifications. This introduction of Special Relativity offers conceptual insights reaching well beyond the usual method of teaching relativity. It considers relevant developments after the discovery of General Relativity (which itself is not presented), and advances the reader into contemporary research fields. This presentation of Special Relativity is connected to present day research topics in particle, nuclear, and high intensity pulsed laser physics and is complemented by the current cosmological perspective. The conceptual reach of Special Relativity today extends significantly further compared even to a few decades ago. As the book progresses, the qualitative and historical introduction turns into a textbookstyle presentation with many detailed results derived in an explicit manner. The reader reaching the end of this text needs knowledge of classical mechanics, a good command of elementary algebra, basic knowledge of calculus, and introductory knowhow of electromagnetism

Title  Fundamentals of Particle Accelerator Physics 
Author(s)  Di Mitri, Simone 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XV, 268 p. 61 illus., 44 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers a concise and coherent introduction to accelerator physics and technology at the fundamental level but still in connection to advanced applications ranging from highenergy colliders to most advanced light sources, i.e., Compton sources, storage rings and freeelectron lasers. The book is targeted at accelerator physics students at both undergraduate and graduate levels, but also of interest also to Ph.D. students and senior scientists not specialized in beam physics and accelerator design, or at the beginning of their career in particle accelerators. The book introduces readers to particle accelerators in a logical and sequential manner, with paragraphs devoted to highlight the physical meaning of the presented topics, providing a solid link to experimental results, with a simple but rigorous mathematical approach. In particular, the book will turn out to be selfconsistent, including for example basics of Special Relativity and Statistical Mechanics for accelerators. Mathematical derivations of the most important expressions and theorems are given in a rigorous manner, but with simple and immediate demonstration where possible. The understanding gained by a systematic study of the book will offer students the possibility to further specialize their knowledge through the wide and uptodate bibliography reported. Both theoretical and experimental items are presented with reference to the most recent achievements in colliders and light sources. The author draws on his almost 20years long experience in the design, commissioning and operation of accelerator facilities as well as on his 10years long teaching experience about particle accelerators at the University of Trieste, Department of Engineering and of Physics, as well as at international schools on accelerator physics

Title  Foundations of Celestial Mechanics 
Author(s)  Bannikova, Elena;Capaccioli, Massimo 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XX, 392 p. 115 illus., 96 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides an introduction to classical celestial mechanics. It is based on lectures delivered by the authors over many years at both Padua University (MC) and V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University (EB). The book aims to provide a mathematical description of the gravitational interaction of celestial bodies. The approach to the problem is purely formal. It allows the authors to write equations of motion and solve them to the greatest degree possible, either exactly or by approximate techniques, when there is no other way. The results obtained provide predictions that can be compared with the observations. Five chapters are supplemented by appendices that review certain mathematical tools, deepen some questions (so as not to interrupt the logic of the mainframe with heavy technicalities), give some examples, and provide an overview of special functions useful here, as well as in many other fields of physics. The authors also present the original investigation of torus potential. This book is aimed at senior undergraduate students of physics or astrophysics, as well as graduate students undertaking a master???s degree or Ph.D

Title  Black Hole Physics : From Collapse to Evaporation 
Author(s)  Grumiller, Daniel;SheikhJabbari, Mohammad Mehdi 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XXVIII, 416 p. 54 illus., 40 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This textbook gradually introduces the reader to several topics related to black hole physics with a didactic approach. It starts with the most basic black hole solution, the Schwarzschild metric, and discusses the basic classical properties of black hole solutions as seen by different probes. Then it reviews various theorems about black hole properties as solutions to Einstein gravity coupled to matter fields, conserved charges associated with black holes, and laws of black hole thermodynamics. Next, it elucidates semiclassical and quantum aspects of black holes, which are relevant in ongoing and future research. The book is enriched with many exercises and solutions to assist in the learning. The textbook is designed for physics graduate students who want to start their research career in the field of black holes; postdocs who recently changed their research focus towards black holes and want to get uptodate on recent and current research topics; advanced researchers intending to teach (or learn) basic and advanced aspects of black hole physics and the associated mathematical tools. Besides general relativity, the reader needs to be familiar with standard undergraduate physics, like thermodynamics, quantum mechanics, and statistical mechanics. Moreover, familiarity with basic quantum field theory in Minkowski space is assumed. The book covers the rest of the needed background material in the main text or the appendices
