Title  Nuclear Fusion with Polarized Fuel 
Author(s)  Ciullo, Giuseppe;Engels, Ralf;B??scher, Markus;Vasilyev, Alexander 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016. 
Description  XIV, 154 p. 48 illus., 14 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers a detailed examination of the latest work on the potential of polarized fuel to realize the vision of energy production by nuclear fusion. It brings together contributions from nuclear physicists and fusion physicists with the aims of fostering exchange of information between the two communities, describing the current status in the field, and examining new ideas and projects under development. It is evident that polarized fuel can offer huge improvements for the first generation of fusion reactors and open new technological possibilities for future generations, including neutron lean reactors, which could be the most popular and sustainable energy production option to avoid environmental problems. Nevertheless, many questions must be resolved before polarized fuel can be used for energy production in the different reactor types. Readers will find this book to be a stimulating source of information on the key issues. It is based on contributions from leading scientists delivered at the meetings ???Nuclear Fusion with Polarized Nucleons??? (Trento, November 2013) and ???PolFusion??? (Ferrara, July 2015).

Title  A Primer on Complex Systems : With Applications to Astrophysical and Laboratory Plasmas 
Author(s)  S??nchez, Ra??l;Newman, David 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2018. 
Description  XX, 404 p. 164 illus., 160 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The purpose of this book is to illustrate the fundamental concepts of complexity and complex behavior and the best methods to characterize this behavior by means of their applications to some current research topics from within the fields of fusion, earth and solar plasmas. In this sense, it is a departure from the many books already available that discuss general features of complexity. The book is divided in two parts. In the first part the most important properties and features of complex systems are introduced, discussed and illustrated. The second part discusses several instances of possible complex phenomena in magnetized plasmas and some of the analysis tools that were introduced in the first part are used to characterize the dynamics in these systems. A list of problems is proposed at the end of each chapter. This book is intended for graduate and postgraduate students with a solid college background in mathematics and classical physics, who intend to work in the field of plasma physics and, in particular, plasma turbulence. It will also be of interest to senior scientists who have so far approached these systems and problems from a different perspective and want a new fresh angle

Title  Nuclear Lattice Effective Field Theory : An Introduction 
Author(s)  L??hde, Timo A;Mei??ner, UlfG 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XI, 396 p. 52 illus., 37 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This primer begins with a brief introduction to the main ideas underlying Effective Field Theory (EFT) and describes how nuclear forces are obtained from first principles by introducing a Euclidean spacetime lattice for chiral EFT. It subsequently develops the related technical aspects by addressing the twonucleon problem on the lattice and clarifying how it fixes the numerical values of the lowenergy constants of chiral EFT. In turn, the spherical wall method is introduced and used to show how improved lattice actions render higherorder corrections perturbative. The book also presents Monte Carlo algorithms used in actual calculations. In the last part of the book, the Euclidean time projection method is introduced and used to compute the groundstate properties of nuclei up to the midmass region. In this context, the construction of appropriate trial wave functions for the Euclidean time projection is discussed, as well as methods for determining the energies of the lowlying excitations and their spatial structure. In addition, the socalled adiabatic Hamiltonian, which allows nuclear reactions to be precisely calculated, is introduced using the example of alphaalpha scattering. In closing, the book demonstrates how Nuclear Lattice EFT can be extended to studies of unphysical values of the fundamental parameters, using the triplealpha process as a concrete example with implications for the anthropic view of the Universe. Nuclear Lattice Effective Field Theory offers a concise, selfcontained, and introductory text suitable for selfstudy use by graduate students and newcomers to the field of modern computational techniques for atomic nuclei and nuclear reactions

Title  Plasma Physics for Controlled Fusion 
Author(s)  Miyamoto, Kenro 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2016. 
Description  XII, 495 p. 158 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This new edition presents the essential theoretical and analytical methods needed to understand the recent fusion research of tokamak and alternate approaches. The author describes magnetohydrodynamic and kinetic theories of cold and hot plasmas in detail. The book covers new important topics for fusion studies such as plasma transport by drift turbulence, which depend on the magnetic configuration and zonal flows. These are universal phenomena of microturbulence. They can modify the onset criterion for turbulent transport, instabilities driven by energetic particles as well as alpha particle generation and typical plasma models for computer simulation. The fusion research of tokamaks with various new versions of H modes are explained. The design concept of ITER, the international tokamak experimental reactor, is described for inductively driven operations as well as steadystate operations using noninductive drives. Alternative approaches of reversedfield pinch and its relaxation process, stellator including quasisymmetric system, openend system of tandem mirror and inertial confinement are also explained. Newly added and updated topics in this second edition include zonal flows, various versions of H modes, and steadystate operations of tokamak, the design concept of ITER, the relaxation process of RFP, quasisymmetric stellator, and tandem mirror. The book addresses graduate students and researchers in the field of controlled fusion.

Title  Investigation of the Compression of Magnetized Plasma and Magnetic Flux 
Author(s)  Mikitchuk, Dimitry 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XIV, 91 p. 60 illus., 58 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The present research studies the fundamental physics occurring during the magnetic flux and magnetized plasma compression by plasma implosion. This subject is relevant to numerous studies in laboratory and space plasmas. Recently, it has attracted particular interest due to the advances in producing highenergydensity plasmas in fusionoriented experiments, based on the approach of magnetized plasma compression. The studied configuration consists of a cylindrical gaspuff shell with preembedded axial magnetic field that prefills the anodecathode gap. Subsequently, axial pulsed current is driven through the plasma generating an azimuthal magnetic field that compresses the plasma and the axial magnetic field embedded in it. A key parameter for the understanding of the physics occurring during the magnetized plasma compression is the evolution and distribution of the axial and azimuthal magnetic fields. Here, for the first time ever, both fields are measured simultaneously employing noninvasive spectroscopic methods that are based on the polarization properties of the Zeeman effect. These measurements reveal unexpected results of the current distribution and the nature of the equilibrium between the axial and azimuthal fields. These observations show that a large part of the current does not flow in the imploding plasma, rather it flows through a lowdensity plasma residing at large radii. The development of a forcefree current configuration is suggested to explain this phenomenon. Previously unpredicted observations in higherpower implodingmagnetizedplasma experiments, including recent unexplained structures observed in the Magnetized Liner Inertial Fusion experiment, may be connected to the present discovery

Title  Zeptosecond Dynamics of Transfer???Triggered Breakup : Mechanisms, Timescales, and Consequences for Fusion 
Author(s)  Cook, Kaitlin Jennifer 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XXIII, 269 p. 137 illus., 72 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Combining incisive experiments with the latest theoretical advances, this book presents an extensive study of transfertriggered breakup, the dominant process by which breakup occurs in reactions involving light, weakly bound nuclei. It demonstrates not only that lifetimes of resonant states shorter than a zeptosecond are crucially important for these reactions to suppress complete fusion, but also that such short lifetimes are experimentally accessible. By making quantitative predictions of the effect of breakup from shortlived resonant states on incomplete fusion at abovebarrier energies, the book suggests that the extent to which neartarget breakup can suppress complete fusion is much more limited than previously thought. With an impressive amount of complex data and stateoftheart models, which were developed, modified, and tested over course of the Ph.D., it examines all aspects of nuclear reactions ??? nuclear models, modern detectors and spectrometers, as well as data analysis, and offers a detailed discussion of experimental results and technical developments like new radioactive beams. This excellent and beautifully written book presents outstanding quality experimental work that establishes a cornerstone in our understanding of the reaction dynamics of light weakly bound nuclei at energies around the Coulomb barrier

Title  The Physics of Laser Plasmas and Applications  Volume 1 : Physics of Laser Matter Interaction 
Author(s)  Takabe, Hideaki 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XIX, 384 p. 205 illus., 156 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The series of books discusses the physics of laser and matter interaction, fluid dynamics of hightemperature and highdensity compressible plasma, and kinetic phenomena and particle dynamics in laserproduced plasma. The book (Vol.1) gives the physics of intenselaser absorption in matter and/or plasma in nonrelativistic and relativistic laserintensity regime. In many cases, it is explained with clear images of physics so that an intuitive understanding of individual physics is possible for nonspecialists. For intenselaser of 101316 W/cm2, the laser energy is mainly absorbed via collisional process, where the oscillation energy is converted to thermal energy by nonadiabatic Coulomb collision with the ions. Collisionless interactions with the collective modes in plasma are also described. The main topics are the interaction of ultraintense laser and plasma for the intensity near and over 1018W/cm2. In such regime, relativistic dynamics become essential. A new physics appears due to the relativistic effects, such as mass correction, relativistic nonlinear force, chaos physics of particle motions, and so on. The book provides clearly the theoretical base for challenging the laserplasma interaction physics in the wide range of power lasers. It is suitable as a textbook for upperundergraduate and graduate students as well as for readers who want to understand the whole physics structure about what happen when an intenselaser irradiates any materials including solids, gas etc. Explaining the physics intuitively without complicated mathematics, it is also a valuable resource for engineering students and researchers as well as for selfstudy
