Title:Cylindrical Liner Z-pinches as Drivers for Converging Strong Shock Experiments [electronic resource]
Author(s): Guy C Burdiak
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The thesisdescribes the development of an entirely new experimental platform for generating and studying converging radiative shock waves. It was discovered that the application of large magnetic pressures to gas-filledcylindrical metallic tubes coul d sequentially produce three shocks within the gas. A comprehensive set of instrumentation was devised to explore this system in detail and an exceptionally thorough experimental and theoretical study wascarried out in order to understand the source of th e shock waves and their dynamics.The research is directed towards some of the most interesting topics in high energy density physics (HEDP) today, namely the interaction of HEDmaterial with radiation and magnetic fields, with broad applications to inertia l confinement fusion (ICF) and laboratory plasma astrophysics. The work has alreadygenerated significant international interest in these two distinctresearch areas andthe results could have significant importance for magnetic ICF concepts being explored a t Sandia National Laboratories in the US and for our understanding of the very strong shock waves that are ubiquitous inastrophysics

Title:Principles of Astrophysics [electronic resource] : Using Gravity and Stellar Physics to Explore the Cosmos
Author(s): Charles Keeton
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book gives a survey of astrophysics at the advanced undergraduate level. It originates from a two-semester course sequence at Rutgers University that is meant to appeal not only to astrophysics students but also morebroadly to physics and engine ering students. The organization is driven more by physics than by astronomy in other words, topics are first developed in physics and then applied to astronomical systems that can be investigated,rather than the other way around. The first half of the bo ok focuses on gravity. Gravity is the dominant force in many astronomical systems, so a tremendous amount can be learned by studying gravity, motion and mass. The theme inthis part of the book, as well as throughout astrophysics, is using motion to invest igate mass. The goal of Chapters 2-11 is to develop a progressively richer understanding of gravity as it applies to objects ranging from planets andmoons to galaxies and the universe as a whole. The second half uses other aspects of physics to address on e of the big questions. While Why are we here? lies beyond the realm of physics, a closely related question is withinour reach: How did we get here? The goal of Chapters 12-21 is to understand the physics behind the remarkable story of how the Universe, E arth and life were formed. This book assumes familiarity with vector calculus andintroductory physics (mechanics, electromagnetism, gas physics and atomic physics) however, all of the physics topics are reviewed as they come up (and vital aspects of vecto r calculus are reviewed in the Appendix). This volume isaimed at undergraduate students majoring in astrophysics, physics or engineering

Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:What happens at the end of the life of massive stars? At one time we thought all these stars followed similar evolutionary paths. However, new discoveries have shown that things are not quite that simple. This book focuses onthe extreme the most int ense, brilliant and peculiar of astronomical explosions. It features highly significant observational finds that push the frontiers of astronomy and astrophysics, particularly as before these objects wereonly predicted in theory. This book is for those w ho want the latest information and ideas about the most dramatic and unusual explosions detected by current supernova searches. It examines and explains cataclysmic and unusualevents in stellar astrophysics and presents them in a non-mathematical but high ly detailed way that non-professionals can understand and enjoy

Title:High Energy Astrophysics [electronic resource] : An Introduction
Author(s): Thierry J.-L Courvoisier
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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: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

Note:An Introduction to the Evolution of Single and Binary Stars provides physicists with an understanding of binary and single star evolution, beginning with a background and introduction of basic astronomical concepts. Although ageneral treatment of ste llar structure and evolution is included, the text stresses the physical processes that lead to stellar mass compact object binaries that may be sources of observable gravitational radiation. Basic concepts ofastronomy, stellar structure and atmospheres, single star evolution, binary systems and mass transfer, compact objects, and dynamical systems are covered in the text. Readers will understand the astrophysics behind the populations ofcompact object binary systems and have sufficient background to delv e deeper into specific areas of interest. In addition, derivations of important concepts and worked examples are included. No previous knowledge of astronomy isassumed, although a familiarity with undergraduate quantum mechanics, classical mechanics, and thermodynamics is beneficial

Note:This long-awaited second edition of the classical textbook on Stellar Structure and Evolution by Kippenhahn and Weigert is a thoroughly revised version of the original text. Taking into account modern observational constraints aswell as additional ph ysical effects such as mass loss and diffusion, Achim Weiss and Rudolf Kippenhahn have succeeded in bringing the book up to the state-of-the-art with respect to both the presentation of stellar physics and thepresentation and interpretation of current sop histicated stellar models. The well-received and proven pedagogical approach of the first edition has been retained. The book provides a comprehensive treatment of the physics of thestellar interior and the underlying fundamental processes and parameters. The models developed to explain the stability, dynamics and evolution of the stars are presented and great care is taken to detail the various stages in astars life. Just as the first edition, which remained a standard work for more than 20 years after i ts first publication, the second edition will be of lasting value not only for students but also for active researchers in astronomyand astrophysics

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book describes the origins and evolution of the chemical elements we and the cosmos are made of. The story starts with the discovery of the common elements on Earth and their subsequent discovery in space. How do we learnthe composition of the d istant stars? How did progress in quantum theory, nuclear physics, spectroscopy, stellar structure and evolution, together with observations of stars, converge to provide an incredibly detailed picture of theuniverse? How does research in the micro-world explain the macro-world? How does progress in one affect the other, or lack of knowledge in one inhibit progress in the other? In short, Shaviv describes how we discovered the variouspieces of the jigsaw that form our present picture of the universe and h ow we sometimes put these in the wrong place before finding in the right one. En route we meet some fascinating personalities and learn about heatedcontroversies. Shaviv shows how science lurched from one dogma to the next, time and again shattering much of what had been considered solid knowledge, until eventually a stable understanding arose. Beginning with generally acceptedscience, the book ends in todays terra incognita of nuclear physics, astrophysics and cosmology. A monumental work that will fasci nate scientists, philosophers, historians and lay readers alike

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In times of growing technological sophistication and of our dependence on electronic technology, we are all affected by space weather. In its most extreme form, space weather can disrupt communications, damage and destroyspacecraft and power stations , and increase radiation exposure to astronauts and airline passengers. Major space weather events, called geomagnetic storms, are large disruptions in the Earths magnetic field brought about by thearrival of enormous magnetized plasma clouds from the Sun . Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) contain billions of tons of plasma and hurtle through space at speeds of several million miles per hour. Understanding coronal mass ejections andtheir impact on the Earth is of great interest to both the scientific and tech nological communities. This book provides an introduction to coronal mass ejections, including a history of their observation and scientific revelations,instruments and theory behind their detection and measurement, and the status quo of theories describi ng their onset and evolution through the heliosphere. We present the story behind the life of a CME, from its magnetic field originsin the solar corona and photosphere to its eventual fate deep in the heliosphere. The intention is to provide an easily acc essible resource for those who are seeking to learn more about this fascinating and crucial naturalphenomenon

Title:Solar Neutrons and Related Phenomena [electronic resource]
Author(s): Lev Dorman
Date:2010
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents the first comprehensive compilation and review of the extensive body of experimental and theoretical material on solar neutrons and related phenomena published in the scientific literature over the last sixtyyears. Phenomena relate d to solar neutrons are more specifically: the decay products of solar neutrons solar gamma rays generated in processes like nuclear reactions between solar energetic charged particles and matter of the solaratmosphere, as well as by the capture of solar neutrons by hydrogen atoms in the solar atmosphere the propagation of solar neutrons, solar gamma rays and other secondary particles through the solar photosphere, chromosphere and corona,as well as through interplanetary space and through the Earth's atm osphere. Models and simulations of particle acceleration, interactions, and propagation processes show that observations of solar neutrons and gamma rays in space andin the Earth's atmosphere yield essential and unique information on the source function o f energetic solar particles, as well as on the chemical composition and density distribution of plasma in the solar atmosphere. The resultsdescribed in the book may also be useful for astrophysical studies of other stars and different astrophysical object s, as well as for space weather problems. The book will serve as a reference work for researchers and students in solarphysics, plasma, neutron, and gamma ray physics, as well as in cosmic ray physics, space science, geophysics and those researching space weather problems

Note:Following the pioneering discovery of alpha clustering and of molecular resonances, the field of nuclear clustering is presently one of the domains of heavy-ion nuclear physics facing both the greatest challenges andopportunities. After many summer s chools and workshops, in particular over the last decade, the community of nuclear molecular physics decided to team up in producing a comprehensive collection of lectures and tutorial reviews coveringthe field. This first volume, gathering seven extensiv e lectures, covers the follow topics: * Cluster Radioactivity * Cluster States and Mean Field Theories * Alpha Clustering and Alpha Condensates * Clustering in Neutron-rich Nuclei *Di-neutron Clustering * Collective Clusterization in Nuclei * Giant Nuclea r Molecules By promoting new ideas and developments while retaining a pedagogical nature of presentation throughout, these lectures will both serve as areference and as advanced teaching material for future courses and schools in the fields of nuclear phy sics and nuclear astrophysics

Title:Dense Matter in Compact Stars [electronic resource] : A Pedagogical Introduction
Author(s): Andreas Schmitt
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The purpose of these lectures is to address the following two strongly coupled issues: What is the ground state (and its properties) of dense (quark) matter? What is the matter composition of a compact star? In order tofulfill their primary goal - to remain both concise and accessible to the beginning graduate student or other newcomers to the field - the only prerequisites are a working knowledge of statistical mechanics and thermodynamics as wellas a first course in quantum field theory. More adv anced material will be introduced as the text progresses and an appendix covers basic elements of thermal quantum field theory at finite chemical potential. Instead of developing allrelevant formal tools (which is not even fully possible in the regime of QCD considered here), calculations are physically motivated, making the reader familiar with the theories and technicalities by learning by doing. In thisway these lectures will guide and prepare the reader towards further investigations and own theoretic al research in this exciting field at the interface of nuclear, particle and astrophysics

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Plasma Physics gives a comprehensive introduction to the basic processes in plasmas and demonstrates that the same fundamental concepts describe cold gas-discharge plasmas, space plasmas, and hot fusion plasmas. Starting fromparticle drifts in magnet ic fields, the principles of magnetic confinement fusion are explained and compared with laser fusion. Collective processes are discussed in terms of plasma waves and instabilities. The concepts of plasmadescription by magnetohydrodynamics, kinetic theory , and particle simulation are stepwise introduced. Space charge effects in sheath regions, double layers and plasma diodes are given the necessary attention. The new fundamentalmechanisms of dusty plasmas are explored and integrated into the framework of conventional plasmas. The book concludes with a brief introduction to plasma discharges. Written by an internationally renowned researcher in experimentalplasma physics, the text keeps the mathematical apparatus simple and emphasizes the underlying concep ts. The guidelines of plasma physics are illustrated by a host of practical examples including plasma diagnostics with differentLangmuir probe methods or laser interferometry, ionospheric sounding, Faraday rotation, space thrusters, and diagnostics of dus ty plasmas. Though primarily addressing students in plasma physics, the book is easily accessible forresearchers in neighboring disciplines, such as space science, astrophysics, material science, applied physics, and electrical engineering. The text is ba sed on an introductory course to plasma physics and more specialized courses inplasma diagnostics, dusty plasmas, and plasma waves, which the author has taught at Kiel University for two decades. The pedagogical approach combines detailed explanations, a large number of illustrative figures, short summaries ofthe basics at the end of each chapter, and a selection of problems with detailed solutions. The book is primarily aimed at students meeting plasma

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:April 12, 2011 is the 50th Anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's pioneering journey into space. To commemorate this momentous achievement, Springer-Praxis is producing a mini-series of books that reveals how humanity's knowledge offlying, working, and living in space has grown in the last half century. Foothold in the Heavens focuses on the early 1970s, when we completed our first exploration of the Moon and established a real, long-term presence in orbit withthe first space stations. It marked a transitiona l phrase between the heady days of the 1960s and efforts to make space travel more economical, more frequent and more routine in the later 1970s and 1980s. This book explores the intensecompetition and bitter rivalry between the United States and the Sovi et Union - with one side devoting its energies to lunar exploration, the other diverting its attention to near-Earth studies - which eventually brought a pair of ColdWar foes away from the nuclear trigger to the negotiating table and opened a new era of c ooperation in space

Title:The Life of Stars [electronic resource] The Controversial Inception and Emergence of the Theory of Stellar Structure
Author(s): Giora Shaviv
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This beautifully illustrated book describes the birth and evolution of the theory of stellar structure through the vehement controversy between biology (as presented by Darwin) and physics (as presented by Kelvin) about the age ofthe Earth, which cul minated with Rutherford suggesting radioactive dating. Shaviv analyzes critically many proclaimed scientific results, showing how and why they were wrong, and explains why it took decades to find the now acceptedscientific answers - where there are such - and why there remains much more to be done before we can say we fully understand what happens up there in the heavens. The Life of the Stars provides fascinating reading for all thoseinterested in the stars, in the history of astronomy and in what their story tells us about how science progresses. Moreover, it will bring readers up-to-date on current problems in astrophysics

Title:Neutron Stars and Pulsars [electronic resource]
Author(s): Werner Becker
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Neutron stars are the most compact astronomical objects in the universe which are accessible by direct observation. Studying neutron stars means studying physics in regimes unattainable in any terrestrial laboratory.Understanding their observed compl ex phenomena requires a wide range of scientific disciplines, including the nuclear and condensed matter physics of very dense matter in neutron star interiors, plasma physics and quantumelectrodynamics of magnetospheres, and the relativistic magneto-hydr odynamics of electron-positron pulsar winds interacting with some ambient medium. Not to mention the test bed neutron stars provide for general relativity theories,and their importance as potential sources of gravitational waves. It is this variety of dis ciplines which, among others, makes neutron star research so fascinating, not only for those who have been working in the field for many yearsbut also for students and young scientists. The aim of this book is to serve as a reference work which not only r eviews the progress made since the early days of pulsar astronomy, but especially focuses on questions such as: Whathave we learned about the subject and how did we learn it?, What are the most important open questions in this area? and What new tools, te lescopes, observations, and calculations are needed to answer these questions?. Allauthors who have contributed to this book have devoted a significant part of their scientific careers to exploring the nature of neutron stars and understanding pulsars. Ev eryone has paid special attention to writing educationalcomprehensive review articles with the needs of beginners, students and young scientists as potential readers in mind. This book will be a valuable source of information for these groups

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

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This well-established textbook gives a uniform and unique presentation of both nuclear and particle physics. Analysis, Part 1, is devoted to disentangling the substructure of matter. This part shows that experiments designed touncover the substructur es of nuclei and nucleons have a similar conceptual basis, and lead to the present picture of all matter being built out of a small number of elementary building blocks and a small number of fundamentalinteractions. Synthesis, Part 2, shows how the elemen tary particles may be combined to build hadrons and nuclei. The fundamental interactions responsible for the forces in all systems become less and less evident in increasinglycomplex systems. A section on neutrino oscillations and one on nuclear matter at high temperatures bridge the field of nuclear and particle physics and modern astrophysics and cosmology. The new edition incorporates a largeamount of new experimental results on deep inelastic scattering (obtained at the Electron-Proton Collider HERA a t DESY in Hamburg) into chapters 7 and 8. Translated into many languages, Particles and Nuclei has become a standardreference for advanced and undergraduate courses. From the reviews of an earlier edition: ...an excellent introduction to nuclear and parti cle physics... A very clear presentation... I thus recommend this book as a very goodphenomenological approach to the physics of particles and nuclei... Physicalia

Note:This book collects the contributions presented at the conference Isolated Neutron Stars: From the Surface to the Interior, held in London in April 2006. Forty years after the discovery of radio pulsars it presents an up-to-datedescription of the new vision of isolated neutron stars that has emerged in recent years with the advance of multi-wavelength observations. The great variety of isolated neutron stars, from pulsars to magnetars, some of them discoveredvery recently and many of them not detectab le in radio wavelengths, is amply covered by descriptions of recent observational results and presentations of the latest theoretical interpretation of these data

Title:Exploring the Secrets of the Aurora [electronic resource] : Second Edition
Author(s): Syun-Ichi Akasofu
Date:2007
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:This new edition of Exploring the Secrets of the Aurora is based on the author's own experiences as a scientist. It describes the history of progress made in auroral science and magnetospheric physics by providing examples ofideas, controversies, str uggles, acceptance, and success. Although no general methodologies are mentioned, the hope is that the reader will learn about the history of progress in auroral science and examples of dealing with the manycontroversies. This book aims to help young scie ntific researchers learn how to persevere during periods of controversy and struggles for acceptance. In this second edition, by utilizing multiple examples, Akasofu is successful indemonstrating the importance and usefulness of Synthesis. Probably the bo ok's most valuable contribution to the history of space physics is precisely the narration of the discovery of substorms.---The book has specialfeatures.---Akasofu's coverage of the history of pre-space age solar-terrestrial relations is the most comprehe nsive among books on the subject known to me.---It is a unique mix of science, history, philosophy, and exhortation.-George Siscoe, Center for Space Physics, Boston University, Boston, MA
