Title:Cosmic Rays in Magnetospheres of the Earth and other Planets [electronic resource]
Author(s): Lev Dorman
Date:2009
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph describes the behaviour of cosmic rays in the magnetosphere of the Earth and of some other planets. Recently this has become an important topic both theoretically, because it is closely connected with the physicsof the Earths magnetosp here, and practically, since cosmic rays determine a significant part of space weather effects on satellites and aircraft. The book contains eight chapters, dealing with The history of the discovery ofgeomagnetic effects caused by cosmic rays and their i mportance for the determination of the nature of cosmic rays or gamma rays The first explanations of geomagnetic effects within the framework of the dipole approximation of theEarths magnetic field Trajectory computations of cutoff rigidities, transmitt ance functions, asymptotic directions, and acceptance cones in the real geomagnetic field taking into account higher harmonics Cosmic raylatitude-longitude surveys on ships, trains, tracks, planes, balloons and satellites for determining the planetary di stribution of the intensity of cosmic rays and how it changes with time Geomagnetic time variations of cosmic rayscaused by the changing of internal sources of Earths main magnetic field and variable magnetospheric current systems Magnetospheric models and how to check them by galactic and solar cosmic rays The behaviour of cosmic raysin the atmospheres and magnetospheres of Venus, Mars, and Jupiter. The work concludes with a discussion of future developments and unsolved problems and contains a list o f about thousand full references. This book will be of greatinterest to experts and students in cosmic ray research, solar-terrestrial physics, magnetosphere physics, and space physics

Date:2006
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:With this volume the Italian Physical Society presents a collection of Ettore Majorana's scientific papers (note scientifiche) in the original language and, for the first time - with three exceptions - translated into English.Each paper is then follo wed by a comment (in English) of an expert in the scientific field. Contributors to the comments are Ennio Arimondo, Nicola Cabibbo, Massimo Inguscio, Luciano Maiani, Rosario Nunzio Mantegna, Francesco Minardi,Luigi Radicati di Brozolo and Antonio Sasso. A century after his birth Ettore Majorana is rightfully considered one of the greatest physicists of the first half of the last century. This volume will be of interest to the specialists ofthe History of Science and to the physicists concerned with probl ems related to Majorana's contributions

Date:2006
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Year 2007 marks the centenary of the birth of Guiseppe Beppo Occhialini, one of the pioneers of cosmic ray and space physics in Europe, and in Italy in particular. Occhialini, beyond being known as a skilled administratorand strong advocate of Eu ropean Space Sciences, is co-discoverer of the pion in 1948. The present volume collects reviews, essays and personal reminiscences on Occhialini's scientific life and work. Through these recollections thereader will also gain a vivid impression of the pi oneering days of elementary particle physics when new detection methods emerged, like the triggered cloud chamber and nuclear emulsions - two techniques perfected by Occhialini - whichmade progress on comic ray physics possible in the first place

Title:Magnetism [electronic resource] : From Fundamentals to Nanoscale Dynamics
Author(s): Joachim Sthr
Hans Christoph Siegmann
Date:2006
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The present text book gives an comprehensive account of magnetism, spanning the historical development, the physical foundations and the continuing research underlying the field, one of the oldest yet still vibrant field ofphysics. It covers both the classical and quantum mechanical aspects of magnetism and novel experimental techniques. Perhaps uniquely, it also discusses spin transport and magnetization dynamics phenomena associated with atomically andspin engineered nano-structures against the bac kdrop of spintronics and magnetic storage and memory applications. Despite the existence of various books on the topic, a fresh text book that reviews the fundamental physical concepts anduses them in a coherent fashion to explain some of the forefront pr oblems and applications today was thought useful by the authors and their colleagues. Magnetism is written for students on the late undergraduate and the graduatelevels and should also serve as a state-of-the-art reference for scientists in academia and r esearch laboratories

Title:Nuclear Energy [electronic resource] : Principles, Practices, and Prospects
Author(s): David Bodansky
Date:2005
Edition:Second Edition
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The world faces serious difficulties in obtaining the energy that will be needed in coming decades for a growing population, especially given the problem of climate change caused by fossil fuel use. This book presents a view ofnuclear energy as an im portant carbon-free energy option. It discusses the nuclear fuel cycle, the types of reactors used today and proposed for the future, nuclear waste disposal, reactor accidents and reactor safety, nuclear weaponproliferation, and the cost of electric power . To provide background for these discussions, the book begins with chapters on the history of the development and use of nuclear energy, the health effects of ionizing radiation, and thebasic physics principles of reactor operation. The text has been rew ritten and substantially expanded for this edition, to reflect changes that have taken place in the eight years since the publication of the first edition and toprovide greater coverage of key topics. These include the Yucca Mountain repository plans, des igns for next-generation reactors, weapons proliferation and terrorism threats, the potential of alternatives to nuclear energy, andcontroversies about low-level radiation. Acclaim for the first edition: The book provides a superb background for scientist s and those in technical fields. It provides probably all the information that many people, includinggovernment policy makers, will ever need...[a] well-written and balanced book. This book is recommended for anyone who wants a broad technical background on nuclear energy. -American Journal of Physics
