Title  The Physics of the Manhattan Project 
Author(s)  Reed, B. Cameron 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2011. 
Description  XIII, 170 p. 45 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  The development of nuclear weapons during the Manhattan Project is one of the most significant scientific events of the twentieth century. This book, prepared by a gifted teacher of physics, explores the challenges that faced the members of the Manhattan project. In doing so it gives a clear introduction to fission weapons at the level of an upperlevel undergraduate physics student. Details of nuclear reactions, their energy release, the fission process, how critical masses can be estimated, how fissile materials are produced, and what factors complicate bomb design are covered. An extensive list of references and a number of problems for selfstudy are included. Links are given to several spreadsheets with which users can run many of the calculations for themselves

Title  Nuclear Fusion Research : Understanding PlasmaSurface Interactions 
Author(s)  Clark, Robert E. H;Reiter, Detlev 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2005. 
Description  XX, 461 p. 210 illus., 6 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  It became clear in the early days of fusion research that the effects of the containment vessel (erosion of "impurities") degrade the overall fusion plasma performance. Progress in controlled nuclear fusion research over the last decade has led to magnetically confined plasmas that, in turn, are sufficiently powerful to damage the vessel structures over its lifetime. This book reviews current understanding and concepts to deal with this remaining critical design issue for fusion reactors. It reviews both progress and open questions, largely in terms of available and soughtafter plasmasurface interaction data and atomic/molecular data related to these "plasma edge" issues

Title  Kinetic Simulations of Ion Transport in Fusion Devices 
Author(s)  de Bustos Molina, Andr??s 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2013. 
Description  XI, 128 p. 70 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis deals with the problem of ion confinement in thermonuclear fusion devices. It is a topic of general interest, as it helps to understand via numerical simulations the ion confinement properties in complex geometries, in order to predict their behavior and maximize the performance of future fusion reactors. The main work carried out in this thesis is the improvement and exploitation of an existing simulation code called ISDEP.?? This code solves the socalled ion collisional transport in arbitrary plasma geometry, improving in this sense other existing codes. Additionally, it presents outstanding portability and scalability in distributed computing architectures, such as Grid or Volunteer Computing. The main physical results can be divided into two blocks. First, the study of 3D ion transport in ITER is presented. ITER is the largest fusion reactor (under construction) and most of the simulations so far assume the axissymmetry of the device. Unfortunately, this symmetry is only an approximation because of the discrete number of magnetic coils used. ISDEP has shown, using a simple model of the 3D magnetic field, how the ion confinement is affected by this symmetry breaking. Secondly, ISDEP has been applied successfully to the study of fast ion dynamics in fusion plasmas. The fast ions, with energies much larger than the thermal energy, are a product of the device???s heating system. Thus, a numerical predictive tool can be used to improve the heating efficiency. ISDEP has been combined with the FAFNER2 code to study such ions in stellarator (TJII, LHD) and tokamak (ITER) geometries. It has also been validated by experimental results. In particular, comparisons with the CNPA diagnostic in the TJII stellarator are remarkable

Author(s)  Shafranov, Vitalii D 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2008. 
Description  X, 203 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Reviews of Plasma Physics Volume 24, edited by V.D. Shafranov, presents two reviews from the cuttingedge of Russian plasma physics research. The first review by V.A. Rozhansky devoted to the mechanisms of transverse conductivity and generation of selfconsistent electric fields in strongly ionized magnetized plasma. The second review by O.G. Bakunin considers numerous aspects of turbulent transport in plasma and fluids. This review is focused on scaling arguments for describing anomalous diffusion in the presence of complex structures. These topics are especially important for fusion plasma research, plasma astrophysics, discharge physics, and turbulence

Title  Rejuvenating the Sun and Avoiding Other Global Catastrophes 
Author(s)  Beech, Martin 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 2008. 
Description  XII, 228 p. 40 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Our Sun is aging. Like us, it will someday die, and the light that warms and illuminates our planet will go out. All life on Earth will perish with it???unless we do something to stop it. Is that possible? Martin Beech thinks it is, but we must begin to plan and create the technologies that will save us NOW! Of course, we do not expect the Sun???s demise to happen anytime soon. The Sun is only about halfway through its expected lifetime. We are talking about an event that will not take place for billions of years. But it may take that long to engineer (actually, asteroengineer) our way out of the crisis. And in the meantime, we can use the newly developed knowledge and technologies to protect us from more immediate threats, such as asteroid and comet hits, global warming, and mass extinctions. For us to keep the Sun shining, we must first change our attitudes. We must put profit and shortterm thinking aside. And we must come together to share the risks and costs of the necessary endeavors. Martin Beech will lay out for you, in startling clear and compelling fashion, some basic star science, what the issues are, and how you can join in this massive undertaking to prevent global disaster and keep us in the Sun???s lifegiving light for the foreseeable future

Title  Strong Field Laser Physics 
Author(s)  Brabec, Thomas 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 2009. 
Description  XV, 592 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Since the invention of the laser in the 1960s, people have strived to reach higher intensities and shorter pulse durations. High intensities and ultrashort pulse durations are intimately related. Recent developments have shown that high intensity lasers also open the way to realize pulses with the shortest durations to date, giving birth to the field of attosecond science (1 asec = 1018s). This book is about highintensity lasers and their applications. The goal is to give an up to date introduction to the technology behind these laser systems and to the broad range of intense laser applications. These applications include AMO (atomic molecular and optical) physics, xray science, attosecond science, plasma physics and particle acceleration, condensed matter science and laser micromachining, and finally even highenergy physics

Title  Fundamentals in Nuclear Physics : From Nuclear Structure to Cosmology 
Author(s)  Basdevant, JeanLouis;Rich, James;Spiro, Michael 
Publication  New York, NY, Springer New York, 2005. 
Description  XIV, 516 p. 184 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  This course explores nuclear physics and its applications ranging from the structure of nuclei and their reactions, to astrophysics and cosmology. The physics is introduced with arguments based on simple ideas such as the empirical structure of nuclear forces and its interplay with the Pauli principle and Coulomb repulsion. The book then develops elementary nuclear models and illustrates nuclear systematics with experimental data. Reactions and decays are discussed both phenomenologically and from the point of view of fundamental electroweak interaction theory. The discussions of fission and fusion emphasize nuclear energy production. This leads directly into nuclear astrophysics and nucleosynthesis. The book ends with a presentation of the latest ideas about cosmology. As a primer this course will lay the foundations for more specialized subjects within the vast domain of nuclear physics as a whole. This book emerged from a series of topical courses the authors delivered at the Ecole Polytechnique and will be useful for advanced undergraduates and for scientists in a variety of fields
