Title:The History and Science of the Manhattan Project [electronic resource]
Author(s): Bruce Cameron Reed
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The development of atomic bombs under the auspices of the U. S. Armys Manhattan Project during World War II is considered to be the outstanding news story of the twentieth century. In this book, a physicist and expert on thehistory of the Project pre sents a comprehensive overview of this momentous achievement. The first three chapters cover the history of nuclear physics from the discovery of radioactivity to the discovery of fission, and would be idealfor instructors of a sophomore-level Modern Phys ics course. Student-level exercises at the ends of the chapters are accompanied by answers. Chapter 7 covers the physics of first-generation fission weapons at a similar level,again accompanied by exercises and answers. For the interested layman and for n on-science students and instructors, the book includes extensive qualitative material on the history, organization, implementation, and results of theManhattan Project and the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombing missions. The reader also learns about the legac y of the Project as reflected in the current world stockpiles of nuclear weapons.

Title:Physics of Societal Issues [electronic resource] : Calculations on National Security, Environment, and Energy
Author(s): David Hafemeister
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides the reader with essential tools needed to analyze complex societal issues and demonstrates the transition from physics to modern-day laws and treaties. This second edition features new equation-orientedmaterial and extensive data s ets drawing upon current information from experts in their fields. Problems to challenge the reader and extend discussion are presented on three timely issues: National Security:Weapons, Offense, Defense, Verification, Nuclear Proliferation, Terrorism Environment: Air/Water, Nuclear, Climate Change, EM Fields/Epidemiology Energy: Current Energy Situation, Buildings, SolarBuildings, Renewable Energy, Enhanced End-Use Efficiency, Transportation, Economics Praise for the first edition: This insight is n eeded in Congress and the Executive Branch. Hafemeister, a former Congressional fellow with wideWashington experience, has written a book for physicists, chemists and engineers who want to learn science and policy on weapons, energy, and the environment. Scientists who want to make a difference will want this book. RichardScribner, first Director, Congressional Science and Engineering Fellow Program, AAAS Hafemeister shows how much one can understand about nuclear weapons and missile issues through simpl e back-of-the-envelope calculations. He alsoprovides compact explanations of the partially successful attempts that have been made over the past 60 years to control these weapons of mass destruction. Hopefully, Physics of Societal Issues will help interes t a new generation ofphysicists in continuing this work. Frank von Hippel, Professor, Princeton, former Assistant Director, National Security, White House, OSTP Energy policy must be quantitative. People who don't calculate economic tradeoffs oftenchampi on simplistic hardware. The solution is more... nuclear power, or electric cars, or photovoltaics, etc. Some simple physics will s

Title:Two Cultures [electronic resource] : Essays in Honour of David Speiser
Author(s): Kim Williams
Date:2006
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:David Speiser is Professor Emeritus at the Catholic University of Louvain, where he taught mathematics and physics from 1963 to 1990. His work in history of science included various publications, some of which are related to arthistory. Nephew of mat hematician Andreas Speiser, David Speiser's own wide-ranging interests have brought him into contact with a panorama of disciplines. Editor Kim Williams has assembled a group of notes where scholars contributeessays inspired by their contact with Prof. Sp eiser in honour of his eightieth birthday. Topics range from history of sciences to history of art, from architecture theory to music theory, from particle physics to the proliferation ofnuclear weapons, to an essay on the very nature of interdisciplinary studies.

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