Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVII, 207 p. 41 illus., 29 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book deals with the interdisciplinary areas of nuclear physics, supernovae and neutron star physics. It addresses the physics and astrophysics of the spectacular supernova explosions, starting with the collapse of massive stars and ending with the birth of neutron stars or black holes. Recent progress in the understanding of core collapse supernova (CCSN) and observational aspects of future detections of neutrinos from CCSN explosions are discussed. The other main focus in this text is the novel phases of dense nuclear matter, its compositions and equation of state (EoS) from low to very high baryon density relevant to supernovae and neutron stars. The multimessenger astrophysics of binary neutron star merger GW170817 and its relation to EoS through tidal deformability are also presented in detail. The synthesis of elements heavier than iron in the supernova and neutron star environment by the rapid (r)process are treated here with special emphasis on the nucleosynthesis in the ejected material from GW170817. This monograph is written for graduate students and researchers in the field of nuclear astrophysics

Title  A First Course on Symmetry, Special Relativity and Quantum Mechanics : The Foundations of Physics 
Author(s)  Kunstatter, Gabor;Das, Saurya 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XXXI, 391 p. 94 illus., 82 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides an indepth and accessible description of special relativity and quantum mechanics which together form the foundation of 21st century physics. A novel aspect is that symmetry is given its rightful prominence as an integral part of this foundation. The book offers not only a conceptual understanding of symmetry, but also the mathematical tools necessary for quantitative analysis. As such, it provides a valuable precursor to more focused, advanced books on special relativity or quantum mechanics. Students are introduced to several topics not typically covered until much later in their education.These include spacetime diagrams, the action principle, a proof of Noether's theorem, Lorentz vectors and tensors, symmetry breaking and general relativity. The book also provides extensive descriptions on topics of current general interest such as gravitational waves, cosmology, Bell's theorem, entanglement and quantum computing. Throughout the text, every opportunity is taken to emphasize the intimate connection between physics, symmetry and mathematics.The style remains light despite the rigorous and intensive content. The book is intended as a standalone or supplementary physics text for a one or two semester course for students who have completed an introductory calculus course and a firstyear physics course that includes Newtonian mechanics and some electrostatics. Basic knowledge of linear algebra is useful but not essential, as all requisite mathematical background is provided either in the body of the text or in the Appendices. Interspersed through the text are well over a hundred worked examples and unsolved exercises for the student

Title  Exploring the Large Hadron Collider  the Detectors : The World Machine Clearly Explained 
Author(s)  Hauschild, Michael 
Publication  Wiesbaden, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden, 2022. 
Description  XI, 39 p. 9 illus., 3 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Michael Hauschild takes the reader of this essential back to September 2008 to the bumpy start of the Large Hadron Collider LHC, the world's largest particle accelerator and today's world machine at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research near Geneva, Switzerland; one of the most fascinating research centers of all. The author explains how the initial ideas led to the creation of the large collaborations at the LHC, alliances of up to 3,000 physicists. These collaborations use huge particle detectors to measure collisions at the LHC, hoping to discover new particles. After a stop of more than two years, the LHC was put back into operation in the spring of 2015 to discover the secrets of nature at higher energies than ever before. This Springer essential is a translation of the original German 1st edition essentials, Neustart des LHC: die Detektoren by Michael Hauschild, published by Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden GmbH, part of Springer Nature in 2018. The translation was done with the help of artificial intelligence (machine translation by the service DeepL.com). A subsequent human revision was done primarily in terms of content, so that the book will read stylistically differently from a conventional translation. Springer Nature works continuously to further the development of tools for the production of books and on the related technologies to support the authors. The Contents The start ??? the very first beam, the accident, the Higgs plan The experiments ??? collaborations Particle detectors ??? energy and momentum, cathedrals of science The Target groups Scientifically interested laymen and students Lecturers and students of the Studium Generale and the natural sciences The Author Dr. Michael Hauschild is a particle physicist at CERN in Geneva and has been a member of the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider LHC since 2005. During the first long measurement period of the LHC from 2010 to 2012, he witnessed the discovery of the Higgs particle in summer 2012

Title  SingleParticle Structure of 29Mg on the Approach to the N = 20 Island of Inversion 
Author(s)  MacGregor, Patrick T 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XIX, 148 p. 94 illus., 84 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This work focuses on the evolution of singleparticle structure in a region of the nuclear chart rich with exotic nuclear structure. The author has led the analysis of the 28Mg(d,p)29Mg reaction, measured with the ISOLDE Solenoidal Spectrometer (ISS) at the ISOLDE facility, CERN. This was the first measurement made using this device and the first time that a solenoidal spectrometer has been used at an ISOL radioactive beam facility. Significant attention is paid to optimizing methods of analysing direct nuclear reactions taking place in solenoidal fields and, as part of this, the author has developed his own analysis codes and simulations. The thesis gives an extremely comprehensive and wellwritten description of this novel system and provides a canonical reference for ISS that will be of great use to researchers and students, as well as presenting some significant scientific results focused on the N=20 "island of inversion", a region of nuclides of great current interest in nuclear physics.

Title  The nthOrder Comprehensive Adjoint Sensitivity Analysis Methodology, Volume I : Overcoming the Curse of Dimensionality: Linear Systems 
Author(s)  Cacuci, Dan Gabriel 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XII, 362 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The computational models of physical systems comprise parameters, independent and dependent variables. Since the physical processes themselves are seldom known precisely and since most of the model parameters stem from experimental procedures which are also subject to imprecisions, the results predicted by these models are also imprecise, being affected by the uncertainties underlying the respective model. The functional derivatives (also called ???sensitivities???) of results (also called ???responses???) produced by mathematical/computational models are needed for many purposes, including: (i) understanding the model by ranking the importance of the various model parameters; (ii) performing ???reducedorder modeling??? by eliminating unimportant parameters and/or processes; (iii) quantifying the uncertainties induced in a model response due to model parameter uncertainties; (iv) performing ???model validation,??? by comparing computations to experiments to address the question ???does the model represent reality???? (v) prioritizing improvements in the model; (vi) performing data assimilation and model calibration as part of forward ???predictive modeling??? to obtain bestestimate predicted results with reduced predicted uncertainties; (vii) performing inverse ???predictive modeling???; (viii) designing and optimizing the system. This 3Volume monograph describes a comprehensive adjoint sensitivity analysis methodology, developed by the author, which enables the efficient and exact computation of arbitrarily highorder sensitivities of model responses in largescale systems comprising many model parameters. The qualifier ???comprehensive??? is employed to highlight that the model parameters considered within the framework of this methodology also include the system???s uncertain boundaries and internal interfaces in phasespace. The model???s responses can be either scalarvalued functionals of the model???s parameters and state variables (e.g., as customarily encountered in optimization problems) or general functionvalued responses. Since linear operators admit bonafide adjoint operators, responses of models that are linear in the state functions (i.e., dependent variables) can depend simultaneously on both the forward and the adjoint state functions. Hence, the sensitivity analysis of such responses warrants the treatment of linear systems in their own right, rather than treating them as particular cases of nonlinear systems. This is in contradistinction to responses for nonlinear systems, which can depend only on the forward state functions, since nonlinear operators do not admit bonafide adjoint operators (only a linearized form of a nonlinear operator may admit an adjoint operator). Thus, Volume 1 of this book presents the mathematical framework of the nthOrder Comprehensive Adjoint Sensitivity Analysis Methodology for ResponseCoupled Forward/Adjoint Linear Systems (abbreviated as ???nthCASAML???), which is conceived for the most efficient computation of exactly obtained mathematical expressions of arbitrarilyhighorder (nthorder) sensitivities of a generic system response with respect to all of the parameters underlying the respective forward/adjoint systems. Volume 2 of this book presents the application of the nthCASAML to perform a fourthorder sensitivity and uncertainty analysis of an OECD/NEA reactor physics benchmark which is representative of a largescale model comprises many (21,976) uncertain parameters, thereby amply illustrating the unique potential of the nthCASAML to enable the exact and efficient computation of chosen highorder response sensitivities to model parameters. Volume 3 of this book presents the ???nthOrder Comprehensive Adjoint Sensitivity Analysis Methodology for Nonlinear Systems??? (abbreviation: nthCASAMN) for the practical, efficient, and exact computation of arbitrarilyhigh order sensitivities of responses to model parameters for systems that are also nonlinear in their underlying state functions. Such computations are not feasible with any other methodology. The application of the nthCASAML and the nthCASAMN overcomes the socalled ???curse of dimensionality??? in sensitivity and uncertainty analysis, thus revolutionizing all of the fields of activities which require accurate computation of response sensitivities. Since this monograph includes many illustrative, fully workedout, paradigm problems, it can serve as a textbook or as supplementary reading for graduate courses in academic departments in the natural sciences and engineering
