Title: | The Essence of Turbulence as a Physical Phenomenon [electronic resource] : With Emphasis on Issues of Paradigmatic Nature |
Author(s): |
Arkady Tsinober |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | This book critically reexamines what turbulence really is, from a fundamental point of view and based on observations from nature, laboratories, and direct numerical simulations. It includes critical assessments and a comparativeanalysis of the key d evelopments, their evolution and failures, along with key misconceptions and outdated paradigms. The main emphasis is on conceptual and problematic aspects, physical phenomena, observations, misconceptions andunresolved issues rather than on conventional formalistic aspects, models, etc. Apart from the obvious fundamental importance of turbulent flows, this emphasis stems from the basic premise that without corresponding progress infundamental aspects there is little chance for progress in applications su ch as drag reduction, mixing, control and modeling of turbulence. More generally, there is also a desperate need to grasp the physical fundamentals of thetechnological processes in which turbulence plays a central role |

Title: | An Introduction to Relativistic Processes and the Standard Model of Electroweak Interactions [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Carlo M Becchi Giovanni Ridolfi |
Date: | 2014 |
Edition: | 2nd ed. 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | These lectures are meant to be a reference and handbook for an introductory course in Theoretical Particle Physics, suitable for advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students. Their purpose is to reconcile theoreticalrigour and completeness with a careful analysis of more phenomenological aspects of the physics. They aim at filling the gap between quantum field theory textbooks and purely phenomenological treatments of fundamental interactions. Thefirst part provides an introduction to scatt ering in relativistic quantum field theory. Thanks to an original approach to relativistic processes, the relevant computational techniques are derived cleanly and simply in thesemi-classical approximation. The second part contains a detailed presentation of the gauge theory of electroweak interactions with particular focus to the processes of greatest phenomenological interest. The main novelties of thepresent second edition are a more complete discussion of relativistic scattering theory and an expansio n of the study of the corrections to the semi-classical approximation, including important processes in LHC physics. The extensionof the standard model to include neutrino masses and oscillations is also discussed, and updated with new results |

Title: | Analytic and Probabilistic Approaches to Dynamics in Negative Curvature [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Franoise Dal'Bo Marc Peign Andrea Sambusetti |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | The work of E. Hopf and G.A. Hedlund, in the 1930s, on transitivity and ergodicity of the geodesic flow for hyperbolic surfaces, marked the beginning of the investigation of the statistical properties and stochastic behavior ofthe flow. The first cen tral limit theorem for the geodesic flow was proved in the 1960s by Y. Sinai for compact hyperbolic manifolds. Since then, strong relationships have been found between the fields of ergodic theory, analysis, andgeometry. Different approaches and new tools have been developed to study the geodesic flow, including measure theory, thermodynamic formalism, transfer operators, Laplace operators, and Brownian motion. All these different points ofview have led to a deep understanding of more general dynamical sy stems, in particular the so-called Anosov systems, with applications to geometric problems such as counting, equirepartition, mixing, and recurrence properties of theorbits. This book comprises two independent texts that provide a self-contained introduct ion to two different approaches to the investigation of hyperbolic dynamics. The first text, by S. Le Borgne, explains the method of martingalesfor the central limit theorem. This approach can be used in several situations, even for weakly hyperbolic flow s, and the author presents a good number of examples and applications to equirepartition and mixing. The second text, by F.Faure and M. Tsujii, concerns the semiclassical approach, by operator theory: chaotic dynamics is described through the spectrum of the associated transfer operator, with applications to the asymptotic counting of periodic orbits. Thebook will be of interest for a broad audience, from PhD and Post-Doc students to experts working on geometry and dynamics |

Note: | This work is an overview of statistical inference in stationary, discrete time stochastic processes. Results in the last fifteen years, particularly on non-Gaussian sequences and semi-parametric and non-parametric analysis havebeen reviewed. The firs t chapter gives a background of results on martingales and strong mixing sequences, which enable us to generate various classes of CAN estimators in the case of dependent observations. Topics discussed includeinference in Markov chains and extension of Ma rkov chains such as Raftery's Mixture Transition Density model and Hidden Markov chains and extensions of ARMA models with a Binomial, Poisson, Geometric, Exponential, Gamma, Weibull,Lognormal, Inverse Gaussian and Cauchy as stationary distributions. It f urther discusses applications of semi-parametric methods of estimation such as conditional least squares and estimating functions in stochastic models.Construction of confidence intervals based on estimating functions is discussed in some detail. Kernel b ased estimation of joint density and conditional expectation are also discussed. Bootstrap and other resampling procedures fordependent sequences such as Markov chains, Markov sequences, linear auto-regressive moving average sequences, block based bootstr ap for stationary sequences and other block based procedures are also discussed in some detail. This workcan be useful for researchers interested in knowing developments in inference in discrete time stochastic processes. It can be used as a material for advanced level research students |

Note: | This lecture note describes the main analytical approaches to stochastic cooling. The first is the time-domain picture, in which the beam is rapidly sampled at a high rate and a statistical analysis is used to describe the coolingbehaviour. The secon d is the frequency-domain picture, which is particularly useful since the observations made on the beam and the numerical cooling simulations are mainly in this domain. This second picture is developed in detail toassess key components of modern cooling t heory like mixing and signal shielding and to illustrate some of the diagnostic methods. Finally the use of a distribution function and the Fokker-Plank equation, which offer the most completedescription of the beam during the cooling, are discussed |

Note: | This brief monograph is an in-depth study of the infinite divisibility and self-decomposability properties of central and noncentral Students distributions, represented as variance and mean-variance mixtures of multivariateGaussian distributions with the reciprocal gamma mixing distribution. These results allow us to define and analyse Student-Lvy processes as Thorin subordinated Gaussian Lvy processes. A broad class of one-dimensional, strictlystationary diffusions with the Students t-marginal distr ibution are defined as the unique weak solution for the stochastic differential equation. Using the independently scattered random measures generated by the bi-variate centredStudent-Lvy process, and stochastic integration theory, a univariate, strictly s tationary process with the centred Students t- marginals and the arbitrary correlation structure are defined. As a promising direction for future workin constructing and analysing new multivariate Student-Lvy type processes, the notion of Lvy copulas and the related analogue of Sklars theorem are explained |

Note: | This book offers an essential bridge between college-level introductions and advanced graduate-level books on special relativity. It begins at an elementary level, presenting and discussing the basic concepts normally covered incollege-level works, i ncluding the Lorentz transformation. Subsequent chapters introduce the four-dimensional worldview implied by the Lorentz transformations, mixing time and space coordinates, before continuing on to the formalism oftensors, a topic usually avoided in lower- level courses. The books second half addresses a number of essential points, including the concept of causality the equivalence between mass and energy, including applications relativisticoptics and measurements and matter in Minkowski spacetime. The clos ing chapters focus on the energy-momentum tensor of a continuous distribution of mass-energy and its covariant conservation angular momentum a discussion of thescalar field of perfect fluids and the Maxwell field and general coordinates. Every chapter is supplemented by a section with numerous exercises, allowing readers to practice the theory. These exercises constitute an essential part ofthe textbook, and the solutions to approximately half of them are provided in the appendix |

Note: | Towards Solid-State Quantum Repeaters: Ultrafast, Coherent Optical Control and Spin-Photon Entanglement in Charged InAs Quantum Dots summarizes several state-of-the-art coherent spin manipulation experiments in III-V quantum dots.Both high-fidelity o ptical manipulation, decoherence due to nuclear spins and the spin coherence extraction are discussed, as is the generation of entanglement between a single spin qubit and a photonic qubit. The experimental resultsare analyzed and discussed in the context of future quantum technologies, such as quantum repeaters. Single spins in optically active semiconductor host materials have emerged as leading candidates for quantum information processing(QIP). The quantum nature of the spin allows for encoding of sta tionary, memory quantum bits (qubits), and the relatively weak interaction with the host material preserves the spin coherence. On the other hand, optically active hostmaterials permit direct interfacing with light, which can be used for all-optical qubit manipulation, and for efficiently mapping matter qubits into photonic qubits that are suited for long-distance quantum communication |

Note: | This book addresses an interesting area of quantum computation called quantum walks, which play an important role in building quantum algorithms, in particular search algorithms. Quantum walks are the quantum analogue of classicalrandom walks. It is known that quantum computers have great power for searching unsorted databases. This power extends to many kinds of searches, particularly to the problem of finding a specific location in a spatial layout, which canbe modeled by a graph. The goal is to fi nd a specific node knowing that the particle uses the edges to jump from one node to the next. This book is self-contained with main topics that include: Grover's algorithm, describing itsgeometrical interpretation and evolution by means of the spectral d ecomposition of the evolution operater Analytical solutions of quantum walks on important graphs like line, cycles, two-dimensional lattices, and hypercubes usingFourier transforms Quantum walks on generic graphs, describing methods to calculate the limit ing distribution and mixing time Spatial search algorithms, with emphasis on the abstract search algorithm (the two-dimensional lattice isused as an example) Szedgedy's quantum-walk model and a natural definition of quantum hitting time (the complete grap h is used as an example) The reader will benefit from the pedagogical aspects of the book, learning faster and withmore ease than would be possible from the primary research literature. Exercises and references further deepen the reader's understanding, a nd guidelines for the use of computer programs to simulate the evolution of quantum walks arealso provided |

Note: | This brief presents characterizations of identification errors under a probabilistic framework when output sensors are binary, quantized, or regular. By considering both space complexity in terms of signal quantization and timecomplexity with respect to data window sizes, this study provides a new perspective to understand the fundamental relationship between probabilistic errors and resources, which may represent data sizes in computer usage, computationalcomplexity in algorithms, sample sizes in st atistical analysis and channel bandwidths in communications |

Note: | This bookis botha course book and a monograph. In fact, it has developed from notes given to graduate course students on materials processing in the years 1989 to 2006. Electromagnetic Processing of Materials (EPM),originatesfroma branchof materials science and engineeringdeveloped in the1980s as a field aiming to create new materials and/or design processes by making use of various functions which appear when applying the electric andmagnetic fieldsto materials. It is based on transport phenomena, m aterials processing and magnetohydrodynamics. The first chapter briefly introduces the history, background and technology of EPM. In the second chapter, the concept oftransport phenomena is concisely introduced and in the third chapter the essential part of magnetohydrodynamics is transcribed and readers areshown that the concept of transport phenomenadoes not only applyto heat, mass andmomentum, but also magnetic field. The fourth chapter describes electromagnetic processing of electrically conductive ma terials such as electromagnetic levitation, mixing, brake, and etc., which are caused by the Lorentz force. Thefifth chapter treats magnetic processing of organic and non-organic materials such as magnetic levitation, crystal orientation, structural align ment and etc., which are induced by the magnetization force. This part is a new academicfield named Magneto-Science, which focuseson the development of super-conducting magnets. This book is written so as to be understood by any graduate student in engine ering courses but also to be of interest to engineers andresearchers in industries |

Note: | This monograph provides an extensive treatment of the theory and applications of the celebrated Borel-Cantelli Lemma. Starting from some of the basic facts of the axiomatic probability theory, it embodies the classical versions ofthese lemma, togethe r with the well known as well as the most recent extensions of them due to Barndorff-Nielsen, Balakrishnan and Stepanov, Erdos and Renyi, Kochen and Stone, Petrov and the present author. The versions of the secondBorel-Cantelli Lemma for pair wise negativ e quadrant dependent sequences, weakly *-mixing sequences, mixing sequences (due to Renyi) and for many other dependent sequences are all included. The special feature of the book is a detaileddiscussion of a strengthened form of the second Borel-Cantelli Lemma and the conditional form of the Borel-Cantelli Lemmas due to Levy, Chen and Serfling. All these results are well illustrated by means of many interesting examples.All the proofs are rigorous, complete and lucid. An extensive list of research papers , some of which are forthcoming, is provided. The book can be used for a self study and as an invaluable research reference on the present topic |

Note: | Asymptotic analysis of stochastic stock price models is the central topic of the present volume. Special examples of such models are stochastic volatility models, that have been developed as an answer to certain imperfections in acelebrated Black-Sch oles model of option pricing. In a stock price model with stochastic volatility, the random behavior of the volatility is described by a stochastic process. For instance, in the Hull-White model the volatilityprocess is a geometric Brownian motion, the St ein-Stein model uses an Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process as the stochastic volatility, and in the Heston model a Cox-Ingersoll-Ross process governs the behavior of the volatility. One of theauthor's main goals is to provide sharp asymptotic formulas with error estimates for distribution densities of stock prices, option pricing functions, and implied volatilities in various stochastic volatility models. The author alsoestablishes sharp asymptotic formulas for the implied volatility at extreme strikes in general stochastic stock price models. The present volume is addressed to researchers and graduate students working in the area of financialmathematics, analysis, or probability theory. The reader is expected to be familiar with elements of classical analysis, s tochastic analysis and probability theory |

Note: | These lecture notes provide a tutorial review of non-Abelian discrete groups and show some applications to issues in physics where discrete symmetries constitute an important principle for model building in particle physics.While Abelian discrete sym metries are often imposed in order to control couplings for particle physics - in particular model building beyond the standard model - non-Abelian discrete symmetries have been applied to understand thethree-generation flavor structure in particular. Ind eed, non-Abelian discrete symmetries are considered to be the most attractive choice for the flavor sector: model builders have tried to derive experimental values of quark andlepton masses, and mixing angles by assuming non-Abelian discrete flavor symmet ries of quarks and leptons, yet, lepton mixing has already been intensively discussed in this context, as well. The possible origins of the non-Abeliandiscrete symmetry for flavors is another topic of interest, as they can arise from an underlying theory - e.g. the string theory or compactification via orbifolding thereby providing a possible bridge between the underlying theoryand the corresponding low-energy sector of particle physics. This text explicitly introduces and studies the group-theoretical a spects of many concrete groups and shows how to derive conjugacy classes, characters, representations,and tensor products for these groups (with a finite number) when algebraic relations are given, thereby enabling readers to apply this to other groups of interest |

Note: | The volume is dedicated to Stephen Smale on the occasion of his 80th birthday. Besides his startling 1960 result of the proof of the Poincar conjecture for all dimensions greater than or equal to five, Smales ground breakingcontributions invarious fi elds in Mathematics have marked the second part of the 20th century and beyond. Stephen Smale has done pioneering work in differential topology, global analysis, dynamical systems, nonlinear functionalanalysis, numerical analysis, theory of computation an d machine learning as well as applications in the physical and biological sciences and economics. In sum, Stephen Smale has manifestly broken the barriers among the different fieldsof mathematics and dispelled some remaining prejudices. He is indeed a uni versal mathematician.

Title: | Protein Folding and Misfolding [electronic resource] : Shining Light by Infrared Spectroscopy |
Author(s): |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | Infrared spectroscopy is a new and innovative technology to study protein folding/misfolding events in the broad arsenal of techniques conventionally used in this field. The progress in understanding protein folding and misfoldingis primarily due to the development of biophysical methods which permit to probe conformational changes with high kinetic and structural resolution. The most commonly used approaches rely on rapid mixing methods to initiate the foldingevent via a sudden change in solvent con ditions. Traditionally, techniques such as fluorescence, circular dichroism or visible absorption are applied to probe the process. In contrast to these techniques, infrared spectroscopy cameinto play only very recently, and the progress made in this fiel d up to date which now permits to probe folding events over the time scale from picoseconds to minutes has not yet been discussed in a book. The aim of this book is toprovide an overview of the developments as seen by some of the main contributors to the field. The chapters are not intended to give exhaustive reviews of the literature but, instead to illustrate examples demonstrating the sort ofinformation, which infrared techniques can provide and how this information can be extracted from the experiment al data. By discussing the strengths and limitations of the infrared approaches for the investigation of folding andmisfolding mechanisms this book helps the reader to evaluate whether a particular system is appropriate for studies by infrared spectroscop y and which specific advantages the techniques offer to solve specific problems |

Note: | A vessels behavior as a heat exchanger, absorber, reactor, or other process unit is dependent upon how fluid flows through the vessel. In early engineering, the designer would assume either plug flow or mixed flow of thefluid through the vessel. Howe ver, these assumptions were oftentimes inaccurate, sometimes being off by a volume factor of 100 or more. The result of this unreliable figure produced ineffective products in multiple reactionsystems. Written by a pioneering researcher in the field of c hemical engineering, the tracer method was introduced to provide more accurate flow data. First, the tracer method measured the actual flow of fluid through a vessel.Second, it developed a suitable model to represent the flow in question. Such models are used to follow the flow of fluid in chemical reactors and other process units, like in rivers and streams, or solid and porous structures. Inmedicine, the tracer method is used to study the flow of chemicalsharmful and harmlessin the bloodstreams of human s and animals. Tracer Technology Modeling the Flow of Fluids discusses how tracers are used to follow theflow of fluids, and how a variety of models are developed to represent these flows. Octave Levenspiel is Professor Emeritus of Chemical Engineering at Oregon State University. His primary interest is chemical reaction engineering,focusing largely on applying chemical reaction kinetics and physics to the design of chemical reactors. His work has been recognized with awards that include the R.H. Wilhe lm award (AIChE), the W.K. Lewis award (AIChE), and the P.V.Danckwerts award (IChemE). His previous books, including Chemical Reaction Engineering, The Chemical Reactor Omnibook, and Engineering Flow and Heat Exchange, are widely used in industry and teac hing, and have been translated into 12foreign languages |

Title: | A Search for Muon Neutrino to Electron Neutrino Oscillations in the MINOS Experiment [electronic resource] |

Note: | A Search for Muon Neutrino to Electron Neutrino Oscillations in the MINOS Experiment is a tour de force that summarizes, clearly and in some depth, much of Ochoas vast body of work which has had a major impact on MINOS. Thecenterpiece of the thesis i s the search for muon neutrino to electron neutrino oscillations, which would indicate a non-zero mixing angle between the first and third neutrino generations (13), currently the holy grail ofneutrino physics. The optimal extraction of the electron neutr ino oscillation signal is based on the novel library event matching (LEM) method which Ochoa developed and implemented together with colleagues at Caltech and atCambridge, which improves MINOS reach for establishing an oscillation signal over any other me thod. LEM will now be the basis for MINOS final results, and will likely keep MINOS at the forefront of this field until it completesits data taking in 2011. Ochoa and his colleagues also developed the successful plan to run MINOS with a beam tuned for an tineutrinos, to make a sensitive test of CPT symmetry by comparing the inter-generational mass splitting forneutrinos and antineutrinos. Ochoas in-depth, creative approach to the solution of a variety of complex experimental problems is an outstanding exa mple for graduate students and longtime practitioners of experimental physics alike.Some of the most exciting results in this field to emerge in the near future may find their foundations in this thesis, for which Ochoa was awarded the National Prize for Youth of Mexico in 2009. This Doctoral Thesis has been acceptedby California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, USA |

Note: | This text is a rigorous introduction to ergodic theory, developing the machinery of conditional measures and expectations, mixing, and recurrence. Beginning by developing the basics of ergodic theory and progressing to describesome recent application s to number theory, this book goes beyond the standard texts in this topic. Applications include Weyl's polynomial equidistribution theorem, the ergodic proof of Szemeredi's theorem, the connection between thecontinued fraction map and the modular surface , and a proof of the equidistribution of horocycle orbits. Ergodic Theory with a view towards Number Theory will appeal to mathematicians with some standard background in measure theory andfunctional analysis. No background in ergodic theory or Lie theory is assumed, and a number of exercises and hints to problems are included, making this the perfect companion for graduate students and researchers in ergodic theory,homogenous dynamics or number theory |

Note: | This volume provides an extensive treatment of Natural Deduction and related types of proof systems, with a focus on the practical aspects of proof methods. The book has two main aims: Its first aim is to provide a systematic andhistorical survey of the variety of Natural Deduction systems in Classical and Modal Logics. The second aim is to present some systems of hybrid character, mixing Natural Deduction with other kinds of proof methods (including Sequentsystems, Tableaux, Resolution). Such system s tend to be more universal and effective, because of the possibility of mixing strategies of proof search from different areas. All necessary background material is provided, in particular, adetailed presentation of Modal Logics, including First-Order Mo dal and Hybrid Modal Logics. The deduction systems presented in the book may be of interest to working logicians, researchers on automated deduction and teachers of logic |

Note: | The discovery of neutrino oscillations opened a new era in neutrino physics: an era of investigation of neutrino masses, mixing, magnetic moments and other neutrino properties. On the other hand small neutrino masses cannot beexplained by the standar d Higgs mechanism of mass generation. Thus, small neutrino masses are the first signature in particle physics of a new beyond the Standard Model physics. One of the most important challenges ahead is the problemof the very nature of neutrinos with definit e masses: are they Dirac neutrinos possessing a conserved lepton number which distinguish neutrinos and antineutrinos or Majorana neutrinos with identical neutrinos and antineutrinos? Manyexperiments of the next generation and new neutrino facilities are now under preparation and investigation. This book is intended as an gentle but detailed introduction to the physics of massive and mixed neutrinos that will preparegraduate students and young researchers entering the field for the exciting years of neutr ino physics to come. It is based on numerous lectures given by the author, one of the pioneers of modern neutrino physics (recipient of the BrunoPontecorvo Prize 2002), at different institutions and schools |

Note: | During more than 10 years, the LEP accelerator and the LEP experiments have taken data for a large amount of measurements at the frontier of particle physics. The main outcome is a thorough and successful test of the StandardModel of electroweak inte ractions. The first part of this volume gives a short theoretical introduction and describes the most important physics results obtained at LEP. Emphasis is put on the properties of the electroweak gaugebosons, which was the main research field at LEP. De tails on interesting other physics effects like Colour Reconnection and Bose-Einstein Correlations are discussed as well. A summary of the current electroweak measurements as thepillars of precision tests of theoretical models is given. The analysis of el ectroweak data concludes the status of electroweak physics as known today. It allows a determination of unmeasured physics parameters of the Standard Model,like the mass of the Higgs boson, but constrains also physics beyond the Standard Model. The second part of this volume introduces the expected electroweak measurements as well as Higgs boson searches at the newly built LHC. After adescription of the LHC collider and its experiments, the projected performance for an improved determination of electrowea k observables is presented. The masses of the W boson and of the top quark as well as the weak mixing angle arebeing focused on. One of the main goals of the LHC experiments is however the finding of the Standard Model Higgs boson or of new physics. The s earch for the Higgs boson and the future determination of its properties, like mass, spinand behaviour under CP transformation, are therefore summarized, pointing out interesting relations with the LEP results. If the LHC experiments meet the expectations presented here they will definitely shed light on one of the primaryquestions of todays particle physics research: the origin of electroweak symmetry breaking and of the masses of the fundamental pa |

Note: | Femtosecond Laser Filamentation gives a comprehensive review of the physics of propagation of intense femtosecond laser pulses in optical media (principally air) and the applications and challenges of this new technique. Thisbook presents the modern understanding of the physics of femtosecond laser pulse propagation, including unusual new effects such as the self-transformation of the pulse into a white light laser pulse, intensity clamping, the physics ofmultiple filamentation and competition, and h ow filaments ability to melt glass leads to wave guide writing. The potential applications of laser filamentation in atmospheric sensing and the generation of other electromagnetic pulsesfrom the UV to the radio frequency are treated, together with possib le future challenges in the excitation of super-excited states of molecules. Exciting new phenomena such as filament induced ultrafast birefringence and the excitationof molecular rotational wave packets and their multiple revivals in air (gases) will als o be discussed. This volume provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date discussion of these topics currently available. It will be of greatinterest to scientists and researchers using intense femtosecond laser pulses as well as to graduate students and researchers who wish to learn more about the field |

Note: | Nuclear quadrupole resonance (NQR) a highly promising new technique for bulk explosives detection: relatively inexpensive, more compact than NMR, but with considerable selectivity. Since the NQR frequency is insensitive tolong-range variations in com position, mixing explosives with other materials, such as the plasticizers in plastic explosives, makes no difference. The NQR signal strength varies linearly with the amount of explosive, and is independentof its distribution within the volume monitored. NQR spots explosive types in configurations missed by the X-ray imaging method. But if NQR is so good, why it is not used everywhere? Its main limitation is the low signal-to-noiseratio, particularly with the radio-frequency interference that exists in a field environment, NQR polarization being much weaker than that from an external magnetic field. The distinctive signatures are there, but are difficult toextract from the noise. In addition, the high selectivity is partly a disadvantage, as it is hard t o build a multichannel system necessary to cover a wide range of target substances. Moreover, substances fully screened by metallicenclosures, etc. are difficult to detect. A workshop was held at St Petersburg in July 2008 in an attempt to solve these pro blems and make NQR the universal technique for the detection of bombs regardless of type. This book presentsthe essentials of the papers given there |

Title: | Flavor Physics and the TeV Scale [electronic resource] |

Note: | This monograph treats the effectiveness of useing flavor physics in offering probes of the TeV scale, while providing a timely interface during the emerging LHC era. By concentrating only with the TeV-scale connection, a largepart of the B factory ou tput can be bypassed, and emphasis is placed on loop-induced processes, i.e. virtual, quantum processes that probe TeV-scale physics. The experimental perspective is taken, resulting in selecting processes,rather than the theories or models, as the basis to exploration. Two-thirds of the book is therefore concerned with b -> s or bs <-> sb transitions. The guiding principle is: unless it can be identified as the smoking gun, it is betterto stick to the simplest, rather than elaborate, explanation of an ef fect that may call for New Physics. By focusing on heavy flavor as a probe of TeV-scale physics, technicalities can be employed to unveil their beauty, withoutgetting ensnared in them, while aiming for the deeper, higher-scale physics that such probes pro vide. This tract originated from a plenary talk at the SUSY 2007 conference in Karlsruhe, Germany |
