Title:Accurate Calibration of Raman Systems [electronic resource] : At the Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino Experiment
Author(s): Magnus Schlsser
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Neutrinos can arguably be labeled as the most fascinating elementary particles known as their small but non-zero rest mass points to new mass generating mechanisms beyond the Standard Model, and also assigns primordial neutrinosfrom the Big Bang a di stinct role in shaping the evolution of large-scale structures in the universe. The open question of the absolute neutrino mass scale will be addressed by the Karlsruhe Tritium Neutrino (KATRIN) experiment,currently under construction. This thesis reports major contributions to developing and implementing new laser-spectroscopic precision tools to continuously monitor the isotope content of the windowless gaseous tritium source ofKATRIN. The method of choice, Raman spectroscopy, is ideally suited for in-s itu monitoring of all six hydrogen isotopologues. In a series of beautiful experiments the author obtained two independent novel calibration methods, firstbased on a comparison of experimental Raman depolarization ratios with corresponding quantum-chemica l calculations, and second on a gas sampling technique. Both methods yield consistent cross-calibration results and, as well asyielding improvements in precision, will be of major importance in reducing systematic effects in long-term neutrino mass measur ements. The methods developed in this thesis also have great potential to further broaden the applicationsof Raman spectroscopy to study extended sources such as in atmospheric physics.

Title:The BL Phase Transition [electronic resource] : Implications for Cosmology and Neutrinos
Author(s): Kai Schmitz
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Several of the very foundations of the cosmological standard model the baryon asymmetry of the universe, dark matter, and the origin of the hot big bang itself still call for an explanation from the perspective offundamental physics. This workadvoc ates one intriguing possibility for a consistent cosmology that fills in the theoretical gaps while being fully in accordance with the observational data. At very high energies, the universe mighthave been in a false vacuum state that preserved B-L, the d ifference between the baryon number B and the lepton number L as a local symmetry. In this state, the universe experienced a stage of hybrid inflation that only ended when thefalse vacuum became unstable and decayed, in the course of a waterfall transitio n, into a phase with spontaneously broken B-L symmetry. This B-L Phase Transition was accompanied by tachyonic preheating that transferred almost theentire energy of the false vacuum into a gas of B-L Higgs bosons, which in turn decayed into heavy Majoran a neutrinos. Eventually, these neutrinos decayed into massless radiation, thereby producing the entropy of the hot big bang,generating the baryon asymmetry of the universe via the leptogenesis mechanism and setting the stage for the production of dark mat ter. Next to a variety of conceptual novelties and phenomenological predictions, the main achievement ofthe thesis is hence the fascinating notion that the leading role in the first act of our universe might have actually been played by neutrinos

Title:Time-Dependent CP Violation Measurements [electronic resource] : Analyses of Neutral B Meson to Double-Charm Decays at the Japanese Belle Experiment
Author(s): Markus Rhrken
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This thesis describes a high-quality, high-precision method for the data analysis of an interesting elementary particle reaction. The data was collected at the Japanese B-meson factory KEKB with the Belle detector, one of the mostsuccessful large-sca le experiments worldwide. CP violation is a subtle quantum effect that makes the world look different when simultaneously left and right and matter and antimatter are exchanged. This being a prerequisitefor ourown world to havedeveloped from the big bang, there are only a few experimental indications of such effects, and their detectionrequiresvery intricatetechniques. The discovery of CP violation in B meson decays garneredKobayashi and Maskawa, who had predicted these findings as early as 1973, the 2008 Nobel prize in physics.This thesis describes in great detailwhat are by far the best measurements of branching ratios and CP violation parameters intwo special reactions with two charm mesons in the final state. It presents an in-depth but accessible ove rview of the theory, phenomenology, experimental setup, data collection, Monte Carlo simulations, (blind) statistical dataanalysis, and systematic uncertainty studies

Title:Relativity for Everyone [electronic resource] : How Space-Time Bends
Author(s): Kurt Fischer
Date:2013
Publisher:Heidelberg : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book explains the theory of special and general relativity in detail, without digressions such as information on Einstein's life or the historical background. However, complicated calculations are replaced with figures andthought experiments, th e text being formulated in such a way that the reader will be able to understand the gist intuitively. The first part of the book focuses on the essentials of special relativity. Explanations are provided of thefamous equivalence between mass and energy a nd of why Einstein was able to use the theory of electrodynamics as a template for his electrodynamics of moving bodies, simply because besides the speed of light, the electric chargeitself is also absolute, leading to the relativity of other physical qua ntities. General relativity is then introduced, mainly with the help of thought experiments. Reference is made to the previously introduced special relativity andthe equivalence principle and, using many figures, it is explained how space-time is bending under gravity. The climax of the book comes with the Einstein equations of gravity that describe the way in which matter bends space-time. Thereader is shown how to obtain the famous Schwarzschild solution. There follows a numerically correct and yet intu itive explanation of the classic effects such as light bending or the movement of the perihelion. The book concludes byexplaining the Friedmann model of the big bang and why the theory of gravity does not fit with quantum theory

Title:Exciting Interdisciplinary Physics [electronic resource] : Quarks and Gluons / Atomic Nuclei / Relativity and Cosmology / Biological Systems
Author(s): Walter Greiner
Date:2013
Publisher:Heidelberg : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Nuclear physics is an exciting, broadly faceted field. It spans a wide range of topics, reaching from nuclear structure physics to high-energy physics, astrophysics and medical physics (heavy ion tumor therapy). New developmentsare presented in this volume and the status of research is reviewed. A major focus is put on nuclear structure physics, dealing with superheavy elements and with various forms of exotic nuclei: strange nuclei, very neutron rich nuclei,nuclei of antimatter. Also quantum electro dynamics of strong fields is addressed, which is linked to the occurrence of giant nuclear systems in, e.g., U+U collisions. At high energies nuclear physics joins with elementary particlephysics. Various chapters address the theory of elementary matter a t high densities and temperature, in particular the quark gluon plasma which is predicted by quantum chromodynamics (QCD) to occur in high-energy heavy ion collisions.In the field of nuclear astrophysics, the properties of neutron stars and quark stars ar e discussed. A topic which transcends nuclear physics is discussed in two chapters: The proposed pseudocomplex extension of Einstein's GeneralRelativity leads to the prediction that there are no black holes and that big bang cosmology has to be revised. F inally, the interdisciplinary nature of this volume is further accentuated by chapters on protein folding and onmagnetoreception in birds and many other animals

Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In this book, the author leads the reader, step by step and without any advanced mathematics, to a clear understanding of the foundations of modern elementary particle physics and cosmology. He also addresses current andcontroversial questions on top ics such as string theory. The book containsgentle introductions to the theories of special and general relativity, and also classical and quantum field theory. The essential aspects of these conceptsare understood with the help of simple calculations for example, the force of gravity as a consequence of the curvature of the space-time. Also treated are the Big Bang, dark matter and dark energy, as well as the presently knowninteractions of elementary particles: electrodynamics, the strong and the weak in teractions including the Higgs boson. Finally, the book sketches as yet speculative theories: Grand Unification theories, supersymmetry, string theory andthe idea of additional dimensions of space-time. Since no higher mathematical or physics expertise is required, the book is also suitable for college and university students at the beginning of their studies. Hobby astronomers andother science enthusiasts seeking a deeper insight than can be found in popular treatments will also appreciate this unique bo ok

Title:The Andromeda Galaxy and the Rise of Modern Astronomy [electronic resource]
Author(s): David Schultz
Date:2012
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Andromeda Galaxy - Messier's M31 - has an almost romantic appeal. It is the most distant object and the only extragalactic object that is visible to the unaided human eye. It is also almost a twin of the Milky Way Galaxy andour neighbor in space, now known to be about 2.5 million light-years away. The Andromeda Galaxy and the Rise of Modern Astronomy examines ancient and modern astronomical studies of Andromeda and the galaxy's critical role in thedevelopment of the science of astrophysics and ou r growing knowledge of the universe. At the start of the twentieth century the universe was thought of asa finite cosmos dominated by the Milky Way. The study of Andromeda shatteredthat image, leading ultimately to the conception of an infinite universe o f countless galaxies and vast distances. Even today, M31 is a major source of new astronomical discoveries, and it also remains one of the most popular (andrewarding) celestial objects for amateur astronomers to observe and study. Andromeda was once a pop ular object of folklore and later became central to our understanding of the universe. For all who are interested in astronomy, theskies, and perhaps even the origins of the universe, The Andromeda Galaxy and the Rise of Modern Astronomy provides a first- of-its-kind accessible, informative, and highly readable account of how the study and observation of thiscelestial object has driven the development of astronomy from ancient times to the present

Note:Quantum mechanics is one of mankind's most remarkable intellectual achievements. Stunningly successful and elegant, it challenges our deepest intuitions about the world. In this book, seventeen physicists and philosophers, alldeeply concerned with un derstanding quantum mechanics, reply to Schlosshauer's penetrating questions about the central issues. They grant us an intimate look at their radically different ways of making sense of the theory'sstrangeness. What is quantum mechanics about? What is it telling us about nature? Can quantum information or new experiments help lift the fog? And where are we headed next? Everyone interested in the contemporary but oftenlongstanding conundrums of quantum theory, whether lay reader or expert, will find much food for thought in these pages. A wealth of personal reflections and anecdotes guarantee an engaging read.

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The universe, ultimately, is to be described by quantum theory. Quantum aspects of all there is, including space and time, may not be significant for many purposes, but are crucial for some time. And so a quantum descriptionof cosmology is required f or a complete and consistent worldview. Consequences of quantum gravity on grander scales are expected to be enormous. In Quantum Cosmology, A Fundamental Description of the Universe, Martin Bojowalddiscusses his theory to see how black holes behave and w here our universe came from. Applications like loop quantum gravity and cosmology have by now shed much light on cosmic evolution of a universe in a fundamental, microscopicdescription. Modern techniques demonstrate how the universe may have come from a n on-singular phase before the Big Bang, how equations for the evolution of structure can be derived, how observations could be used to test theseclaims, but also what fundamental limitations remain to our knowledge of the universe before the Big Bang

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The purpose of the book is a dual one: to detail the nature and results of Tunguska investigations in the former USSR and present-day CIS, and to destroy two long-standing myths still held in the West. The first concerns allegedfinal solutions that h ave ostensibly been found in Russia or elsewhere. The second concerns the mistaken belief that there has been little or no progress in understanding the nature of the Tunguska phenomenon. All this is treatedby the author in a scholarly and responsible man ner. Although the book does present certain unusual findings of Russian and Ukrainian scholars, it is important to stress that this is not a sensational book it is, rather, a seriousexposition of the results of rational investigations into a difficult sci entific problem. We are demonstrating the true complexity of the problem that is now entering its second century of existence. Simple meteoritic models cannotexplain all the characteristics of this complicated event, and therefore certain so-called unconv entional hypotheses about the nature of the Tunguska explosion are to be considered as well

Title:The Universe Before the Big Bang [electronic resource] Cosmology and String Theory
Author(s): Maurizio Gasperini
Date:2008
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Terms such as expanding Universe, big bang, and initial singularity, are nowadays part of our common language. The idea that the Universe we observe today originated from an enormous explosion (big bang) is now wellknown and widely accepted, at all l evels, in modern popular culture. But what happens to the Universe before the big bang? And would it make any sense at all to ask such a question? In fact, recent progress in theoretical physics, andin particular in String Theory, suggests answers to the above questions, providing us with mathematical tools able in principle to reconstruct the history of the Universe even for times before the big bang. In the emerging cosmologicalscenario the Universe, at the epoch of the big bang, instead of being a new born baby was actually a rather aged creature in the middle of its possibly infinitely enduring evolution. The aim of this book is to convey thispicture in non-technical language accessible also to non-specialists. The author, himself a leading cosmologis t, draws attention to ongoing and future observations that might reveal relics of an era before the big bang

Title:Gravity, Black Holes, and the Very Early Universe [electronic resource] : An Introduction to General Relativity and Cosmology

Note:In the early 1900s, Albert Einstein formulated two theories that would forever change the landscape of physics: the Special Theory of Relativity and the General Theory of Relativity. By 1925, quantum mechanics had been born outof the dissection of th ese two theories, and shortly after that, relativistic quantum field theory. We now had in place some important ties between the laws of physics and the types of particle interactions the new physics wasuncovering. Gravity is one of the four types of forc es that are found throughout the universe. In fact, although it is a relatively weak force, it operates at huge distances, and so must be accounted for in any cosmological system.Unfortunately, gravity continues to defy our neat categorization of how all the forces in nature work together. Professor Tai Chow, from the California State University at Stanislaus in Turlock, lays out for us the basic ideas ofEinstein, including his law of gravitation, explains the physics behind black holes, and weaves into t his an absorbing account an explanation of the structure of the universe and the science of cosmology, including presenting thevarious models of the Big Bang, the Inflationary Universe, and the Unification of Forces. Travel with him down this engaging pat h to reach some fascinating conclusions, which raise even more interesting questions for the future ofastronomy and physics. Says Dr. Mark Silverman of Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut: The author introduces the mathematical methods essential to understanding and applying general relativitybut leaves to more advancedreferences derivations that a beginning student would likely find overly long and tedious. In this way the student can concentrate on learning physics .A strong point [is] the compreh ensive discussion of the physics of blackholes. Here again the author has hit just the right level of presentation: sufficient mathematical detail to demonstrate the physical attributes
