Title:Beyond Standard Model Phenomenology at the LHC [electronic resource]
Author(s): Priscila de Aquino
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This thesis provides an introduction to the physics of the Standard Model and beyond, and to the methods used to analyse Large Hadron Collider (LHC) data. The 'hierarchy problem', astrophysical data and experiments on neutrinosindicate that new physi cs can be expected at the now accessible TeV scale. This work investigates extensions of the Standard Model with gravitons and gravitinos (in the context of supergravity). The production of these particles inassociation with jets is studied as one of the most promising avenues for researching new physics at the LHC. Advanced simulation techniques and tools, such as algorithms allowing the computation of Feynman graphs and helicityamplitudes are first developed and then employed

Title:High Energy Astrophysics [electronic resource] : An Introduction

Note:High-energy astrophysics has unveiled a Universe very different from that only known from optical observations. It has revealed many types of objects in which typical variability timescales are as short as years, months, days, andhours (in quasars, X -ray binaries, and other objects), and even down to milli-seconds in gamma ray bursts. The sources of energy that are encountered are only very seldom nuclear fusion, and most of the time gravitation, a paradox whenone thinks that gravitation is, by many orders of magnitude, the weakest of the fundamental interactions. The understanding of these objects' physical conditions and the processes revealed by high-energy astrophysics in the lastdecades is nowadays part of astrophysicists' culture, even of those active in other domains of astronomy. This book evolved from lectures given to master and PhD students at the University of Geneva since the early 1990s. It aims atproviding astronomers and physicists intending to be active in high-energy astrophysics a broad basis on which they should be able to build the more specific knowledge they will need. While in the first part of the book the physicalprocesses are described and derived in detail, the second part studies astrophysical objects in which high-energy astrophysics plays a crucial role. This two-pronged approach will help students recognise physical processes by theirobservational signatures in contexts that may differ widely from those presented here

Note:As a result of significant research over the past 20 years, black holes are now linked to some of the most spectacular and exciting phenomena in the Universe, ranging in size from those that have the same mass as stars to thesuper-massive objects tha t lie at the heart of most galaxies, including our own Milky Way. This book first introduces the properties of simple isolated holes, then adds in complications like rotation, accretion, radiation, and magneticfields, finally arriving at a basic understan ding of how these immense engines work. Black Hole Astrophysics reviews our current knowledge of cosmic black holes and how they generate the most powerful observed pheonomena in theUniverse highlights the latest, most up-to-date theories and discoverie s in this very active area of astrophysical research demonstrates why we believe that black holes are responsible for important phenomena such as quasars,microquasars and gammaray bursts explains to the reader the nature of the violent and spectacular o utfl ows (winds and jets) generated by black hole accretion

Title:Jets from Young Stars IV [electronic resource] : From Models to Observations and Experiments
Author(s): Paulo Jorge Valente Garcia
Joao Miguel Ferreira
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Astronomical jets are key astrophysical phenomena observed in gamma-ray bursts, active galactic nuclei or young stars. Research on them has largely occurred within the domains of astronomical observations, astrophysical modelingand numerical simulati ons, but the recent advent of high energy density facilities has added experimental control to jet studies. Front-line research on jet launching and collimation requires a highly interdisciplinary approach and anelevated level of sophistication. Bridging the gaps between pure magnetohydrodynamics, thermo-chemical evolution, high angular resolution spectro-imaging and laboratory experiments is no small matter. This volume strives to bridgethose very gaps. It offers a series of lectures which, taken as whol e, act as a thorough reference for the foundations of this discipline. These lectures address the following: laboratory jets physics from laser and z-pinch plasmaexperiments, the magnetohydrodynamic theory of relativistic and non-relativistic stationary jets, heating mechanisms in magnetohydrodynamic jets, from the solar magnetic reconnection to the molecular shock heating perspectives, atomic and molecular microphysics of jet shocked material. In addition to the lectures, the book offers, in closing, a presentation of a series of observational diagnostics, thus allowing for the recovery of basic physicalquantities from jet emission lines

Title:MHD Flows in Compact Astrophysical Objects [electronic resource] : Accretion, Winds and Jets
Author(s): Vasily S Beskin
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Accretion flows, winds and jets of compact astrophysical objects and stars are generally described within the framework of hydrodynamical and magnetohydrodynamical (MHD) flows. Analytical analysis of the problem provides profoundphysical insights, wh ich are essential for interpreting and understanding the results of numerical simulations. Providing such a physical understanding of MHD Flows in Compact Astrophysical Objects is the main goal of this book, whichis an updated translation of a successful Russian graduate textbook. The book provides the first detailed introduction into the method of the Grad-Shafranov equation, describing analytically the very broad class of hydrodynamical andMHD flows. It starts with the classical examples of hydrodynamic al accretion onto relativistic and nonrelativistic objects. The force-free limit of the Grad-Shafranov equation allows us to analyze in detail the physics of themagnetospheres of radio pulsars and black holes, including the Blandford-Znajek process of ene rgy extraction from a rotating black hole immersed in an external magnetic field. Finally, on the basis of the full MHD version of theGrad-Shafranov equation the author discusses the problems of jet collimation and particle acceleration in Active Galactic Nuclei, radio pulsars, and Young Stellar Objects. The comparison of the analytical results with numericalsimulations demonstrates their good agreement. Assuming that the reader is familiar with the basic physical and mathematical concepts of General Rela tivity, the author uses the 3+1 split approach which allows the formulation of allresults in terms of physically clear language of three dimensional vectors. The book contains detailed derivations of equations, numerous exercises, and an extensive bibliog raphy. It therefore serves as both an introductory text forgraduate students and a valuable reference work for researchers in the field

Note:Studying the complex physical systems of stellar jets necessitates the incorporation of nonlinear effects which occur on a wide variety of length and timescales. One of the primary methods used to study the physics of jets isnumerical simulations tha t apply high performance computing techniques. Such techniques are also required for analysing the huge modern astrophysical datasets. This book examines those computing techniques. It is a collection of thelectures from the fifth and final school of the JETSET network, Jets From Young Stars V: High Performance Computing in Astrophysics. It begins with an introduction to parallel programming techniques, with an emphasis on MessagePassing Interface (MPI), before it goes on to review grid technology techniq ues and offer a practical introduction to Virtual Observatory. The second half of the book, then, is devoted to applications of high performance computingtechniques, including 3D radiation transfer, to jet and star formation processes. Aimed at graduate s tudents in astrophysics, this book presents state-of-the-art methods, thereby offering interesting new insights to researchers in thefield

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume contains the proceedings of the Conference Protostellar Jets in Context held by the JETSET Marie Curie Research Training Network in July 2008. This meeting not only served to showcase some of the network's achievementsbut was also a platf orm to hear from, discuss and debate the recent findings of world-class astrophysicists in the field of protostellar jet research. Jets from young stars are of course not an isolated astrophysical phenomenon. It isknown that objects as diverse as young br own dwarfs, planetary nebulae, symbiotic stars, micro-quasars, AGN, and gamma-ray bursters produce jets. Thus in a series of talks, protostellar jets were put in context by comparing them withtheir often much larger brethren and also by considering the ub iquitous accretion disks that seem to be necessary for their formation. With this spectrum of contributions on observations and the theory of astrophysical jets andaccretion disks, this book serves as a comprehensive reference work for researchers and stu dents alike

Title:Black Hole Gravitohydromagnetics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Brian Punsly
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Black hole gravitohydromagnetics (GHM) is developed from the rudiments to the frontiers of research in this book. GHM describes plasma interactions that combine the effects of gravity and a strong magnetic field, in the vicinity(ergosphere) of a rapi dly rotating black hole. This topic was created in response to the astrophysical quest to understand the central engines of radio loud extragalactic radio sources. The theory describes a torsional tug of warbetween rotating ergospheric plasma and the dist ant asymptotic plasma that extracts the rotational inertia of the black hole. The recoil from the struggle between electromagnetic and gravitational forces near the event horizon ismanifested as a powerful pair of magnetized particle beams (jets) that are ejected at nearly the speed of light. These bipolar jets feed large-scale magnetized plasmoids on scales as large as millions of light years (the radio lobes ofextragalactic radio sources). This interaction can initiate jets that transport energy fluxes exceeding 1047 ergs/s. This second edition of the book is updated throughout and contains a completely new chapter discussing state of theart and results of numerical simulations of ergospheric disk jets occuring in magnetohydrodynamic accretion flows

Note:It is well established and appreciated by now that more than 99% of the baryonic matter in the universe is in the plasma state. Most astrophysical systems could be approximated as conducting fluids in a gravitational field. It isthe combined effect o f these two that gives rise to the mind boggling variety of configurations in the form of filaments, loops , jets and arches. The plasma structures that cannot last for more than a second or less in a laboratoryremain intact for astronomical time and spat ial scales in an astrophysical setting. The case in point is the well known extragalactic jets whose collimation and stability has remained an enigma inspite of the efforts of many for manylong years. The high energy radiation sources such as the active g alactic nuclei again summon the coherent plasma radiation processes for their exceptionally large output from regions of relatively small physical sizes. The generationof magnetic field, anomalous transport of angular momentum with decisive bearing on sta r formation processes, the ubiquitous MHD turbulence under conditions irreproducible in terrestrial laboratories are some of the generic issuesstill awaiting a concerted effort for their understanding. Quantum Plasmas, pair plasmas and pair-ion plasmas ex ist under extreme conditions in planetary interiors and exotic stars. In this workshop plasma physicists, astrophysicistsand plasma astrophysicists are brought together to discuss these issues

Note:John Dyson has contributed to the study of the hydrodynamic processes that govern a wide variety of astrophysical sources which he has helped explain. In this volume dedicated to him, introductory reviews to a number of the keyprocesses and to the so urces themselves are given by leading experts. The mechanisms in which the multi-component natures of media affect their dynamics receive particular attention, but the roles of hydromagnetic effects are alsohighlighted. The importance of cosmic ray modera tion and mass transfer between different thermal phases for cosmic ray moderation and mass transfer between different thermal phases for the evolution of flows are amongst the topicstreated. The main types of regions considered include those where stars f orm, the circumstellar environments of evolved stars, the larger scale interstellar structures caused by the mass loss of stars, and those where the lines of AGNsform. The reviews complement one another and together provide a coherent introduction to the astrophysics of diffuse sources suitable for postgraduate students and researchers in astrophysics. Individual reviews stand alone and aresuitable for an audience that includes advanced undergraduates doing final year projects
