Title  Scattering Theory 
Author(s)  Friedrich, Harald 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2016. 
Description  XIII, 287 p. 68 illus., 21 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This corrected and updated second edition of "Scattering Theory" presents a concise and modern coverage of the subject. In the present treatment, special attention is given to the role played by the longrange behaviour of the projectiletarget interaction, and a theory is developed, which is well suited to describe nearthreshold bound and continuum states in realistic binary systems such as diatomic molecules or molecular ions. It is motivated by the fact that experimental advances have shifted and broadened the scope of applications where concepts from scattering theory are used, e.g. to the field of ultracold atoms and molecules, which has been experiencing enormous growth in recent years, largely triggered by the successful realization of BoseEinstein condensates of dilute atomic gases in 1995. The book contains sections on special topics such as nearthreshold quantization, quantum reflection, Feshbach resonances and the quantum description of scattering in two dimensions. The level of abstraction is kept as low as at all possible and deeper questions related to the mathematical foundations of scattering theory are passed by. It should be understandable for anyone with a basic knowledge of nonrelativistic quantum mechanics. The book is intended for advanced students and researchers, and it is hoped that it will be useful for theorists and experimentalists alike

Title  Ionization and Plasma Dynamics of Single Large Xenon Clusters in Superintense XUV Pulses 
Author(s)  Rupp, Daniela 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIV, 161 p. 85 illus., 45 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  At the heart of this thesis is the young field of free electron laser science, whose experimental and theoretical basics are described here in a comprehensible manner. Extremely bright and ultra short pulses from short wavelength freeelectron lasers (FELs) have recently opened the path to new fields of research. The xray flashes transform all matter into highly excited plasma states within femtoseconds, while their high spatial and temporal resolution allows the study of fast processes in very small structures. Even imaging of single molecules may be within reach if ultrafast radiation damage can be understood and brought under control. Atomic clusters have proven to be ideal model systems for lightmatter interaction studies in all wavelength regimes, being size scalable, easytoproduce gas phase targets with a simple structure. With FELs, "single cluster imaging and simultaneous ion spectroscopy" makes possible experiments under extremely well defined initial conditions, because the size of the cluster and the FEL intensity can be extracted from the scattering images. For the first time large xenon clusters up to micron radius were generated. Their single cluster scattering images were analyzed for cluster morphology and traces of the ultrafast plasma builtup during the femtosecond FEL pulse. The simultaneously measured single cluster ion spectra yield unprecedented insight into the ion dynamics following the interaction. The results will feed both future experimental effort and theoretical modeling

Title  Scattering of Particles and Radiation in Astrophysical Environments 
Author(s)  Lewkow, Nicholas R 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XI, 106 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis considers the nonequilibrium and energy transfer processes involved in the evolution of astrophysical gases and plasmas. Momentumenergy transfer in collisions of atoms, molecules and ions governs the evolution of interacting astrophysical gas and plasmas. These collisions require an accurate quantum mechanical description and the work presented here develops a unified kinetic and quantummechanical model for this consideration. The multiscale computational approach implemented here takes into account nonthermal distributions of atomic particles and clarifies their role in the evolution of interstellar gas and planetary atmospheres. As shown, the physical parameters of nonthermal distributions strongly depend on the differential cross sections of atomic, molecular and ion collisions. Readers will find a detailed description of the energy relaxation of energetic atoms, produced in the interstellar gas by the solar and stellar wind plasmas. Computation of the nonthermal diffuse background of energetic helium atoms in the heliosphere is also included for evaluation of the contributions from local and cosmic sources and analysis of related satellite observations. Work involving modeling of energetic particle precipitation into planetary atmospheres and formation of the planetary and exoplanetary escape fluxes has been performed with very accurate cross sections, describing momentumenergy transfer processes with high precision. Results of the Monte Carlo simulations, carried out for the Mars atmosphere at different solar conditions, can be used for analysis of observational data for Mars atmospheric escape and investigation into the history of Martian water

Title  Relativity Matters : From Einstein's EMC2 to Laser Particle Acceleration and QuarkGluon Plasma 
Author(s)  Rafelski, Johann 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XXV, 468 p. 85 illus., 63 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Rafelski presents Special Relativity in a language deemed accessible to students without any topical preparation  avoiding the burden of geometry, tensor calculus, and spacetime symmetries ??? and yet advancing in highly contemporary context all the way to research frontiers. Special Relativity is presented such that nothing remains a paradox or just apparent, but rather is explained. A text of similar character, content, and scope, has not been available before. This book describes Special Relativity when rigid material bodies are introduced describing the reality of body contraction; it shows the relevance of acceleration and the necessary evolution of the theoretical framework when acceleration is critical. This book also presents the evolving views of Einstein about the aether. In addition to a careful and elementary introduction to relativity complete with exercises, worked examples and many discussions, this volume connects to current research topics so that readers can explore Special Relativity from the foundation to the frontier. Johann Rafelski is a theoretical physicist working at The University of Arizona in Tucson, USA. Born in 1950 in Krakow, Poland, he received his Ph.D. with Walter Greiner at University Frankfurt, Germany in 1973. In 1977 Rafelski arrived at CERNGeneva, where with Rolf Hagedorn he developed the search for quarkgluon plasma in relativistic heavy ion collision as a novel research domain. He invented and developed the strangeness quark flavor as the signature of quarkgluon plasma, advancing the discovery of this new phase of primordial matter. Professor Rafelski also has held professional appointments at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Argonne National Laboratory in Chicago, the University of Frankfurt, the University of Cape Town, the University of ParisJussieu, and the Ecole Polytechnique. He has been a DFG Excellence Initiative Professor at LudwigMaximillian University Munich. In collaboration with researchers from the Ecole Polytechnique in Paris and ELIBeamlines in Prague he is using ultraintense lasers in nuclear and fundamental physics. Prof. Rafelski is the editor of the openaccess book: Melting Hadrons, Boiling Quarks  From Hagedorn Temperature to UltraRelativistic HeavyIon Collisions at CERN  With a Tribute to Rolf Hagedorn (Springer, 2016)

Title  Theoretical Atomic Physics 
Author(s)  Friedrich, Harald 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2017. 
Description  XVII, 642 p. 131 illus., 23 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This expanded and updated wellestablished textbook contains an advanced presentation of quantum mechanics adapted to the requirements of modern atomic physics. It includes topics of current interest such as semiclassical theory, chaos, atom optics and BoseEinstein condensation in atomic gases. In order to facilitate the consolidation of the material covered, various problems are included, together with complete solutions. The emphasis on theory enables the reader to appreciate the fundamental assumptions underlying standard theoretical constructs and to embark on independent research projects. The fourth edition of Theoretical Atomic Physics contains an updated treatment of the sections involving scattering theory and nearthreshold phenomena manifest in the behaviour of cold atoms (and molecules). Special attention is given to the quantization of weakly bound states just below the continuum threshold and to lowenergy scattering and quantum reflection just above. Particular emphasis is laid on the fundamental differences between longranged Coulombic potentials and shorterranged potentials falling off faster than??1/r2??at large distances r. The new sections on tunable nearthreshold Feshbach resonances and on scattering in two spatial dimensions also address problems relevant for current and future research in the field of cold (and ultracold) atoms. Graduate students and researchers will find this book a valuable resource and comprehensive reference alike

Title  Lectures in Quantum Mechanics : A TwoTerm Course 
Author(s)  Picasso, Luigi E 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  X, 354 p. 82 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Based on a series of university lectures on nonrelativistic quantum mechanics, this textbook covers a wide range of topics, from the birth of quantum mechanics to the finestructure levels of heavy atoms. The author sets out from the crisis in classical physics and explores the seminal ideas of Einstein, Bohr, and de Broglie and their vital importance for the development of quantum mechanics. There follows a bottomup presentation of the postulates of quantum mechanics through real experiments (such as those of neutron interferometry), with consideration of their most important consequences, including applications in the field of atomic physics.??A final chapter is devoted to the paradoxes of quantum mechanics, and particularly those aspects that are still open and hotly debated, to end up with a mention to Bell's theorem and Aspect's experiments. In presenting the principles of quantum mechanics in an inductive way, this book has already proved very popular with students in its Italian language version.It??complements the exercises and solutions book "Problems in Quantum Mechanics", by E. d'Emilio, L.E.
