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: | Multi-scale Analysis for Random Quantum Systems with Interaction [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Victor Chulaevsky Yuri Suhov |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Birkhuser |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | The study of quantum disorder has generated considerable research activity in mathematics and physics over past 40 years. While single-particle models have been extensively studied at a rigorous mathematical level, little wasknown about systems of se veral interacting particles, let alone systems with positive spatial particle density. Creating a consistent theory of disorder in multi-particle quantum systems is an important and challenging problem thatlargely remains open. Multi-scale Analysis for Ra ndom Quantum Systems with Interaction presents the progress that had been recently achieved in this area. The main focus of the book is on a rigorous derivation of themulti-particle localization in a strong random external potential field. To make the pr esentation accessible to a wider audience, the authors restrict attention to a relatively simple tight-binding Anderson model on a cubic lattice Zd. This book includes the following cutting-edge features: * an introduction to the state-of-the-art single-p article localization theory * an extensive discussion of relevant technical aspects of the localization theory * a thoroughcomparison of the multi-particle model with its single-particle counterpart * a self-contained rigorous derivation of both spectral and dynamical localization in the multi-particle tight-binding Anderson model. Required mathematicalbackground for the book includes a knowledge of functional calculus, spectral theory (essentially reduced to the case of finite matrices) and basic probab ility theory. This is an excellent text for a year-long graduate course orseminar in mathematical physics. It also can serve as a standard reference for specialists |

Title: | Nonlinear Optical Properties of Materials [electronic resource] |

Publisher: | Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This book is mostly concerned on the experimental research of the nonlinear optical characteristics of various media, low- and high-order harmonic generation in different materials, and formation, and nonlinear opticalcharacterization of clusters. We also demonstrate the inter-connection between these areas of nonlinear optics. Nonlinear optical properties of media such as optical limiting can be applied in various areas of science andtechnology. To define suitable materials for these applications, o ne has to carefully analyse the nonlinear optical characteristics of various media, such as the nonlinear refractive indices, coefficients of nonlinear absorption,saturation absorption intensities, etc. Knowing the nonlinear optical parameters of material s is also important for describing the propagation effects, self-interaction of intense laser pulses, and optimisation of various nonlinearoptical processes. Among those processes one can admit the importance of the studies of the frequency conversion of coherent laser sources. The area of interest for nonlinear optical characterization of materials is also closelyrelated with new field of nanostructures formation and application during laser-matter interaction. We show how the nonlinear optical analysis of materials leads to improvement of their high-order nonlinear optical response during theinteraction with strong laser fields. Ablation-induced nanoparticles formation is correlated with their applications as efficient sources of coherent short-waveleng th photons. From other side, recent achievements of harmonic generationin plasmas are closely related with the knowledge of the properties of materials in the laser plumes. All of these studies are concerned with the low-order nonlinear optical features o f various materials. The novelty of the approachdeveloped in present book is related with inter-connection of those studies with each other |

This theme is a hot topic in modern physics because of the greatachievements in generati ng USP. Special attention is given to the peculiarities of UPS-matter interaction. One of the important items of this book is the derivation and applications of a new formula which describes the totalphoto-process probability under the action of USP in th e framework of perturbation theory. Strong field-matter interaction is also considered with the use of the Bloch formalism in a two-level approximation for UPS with variablecharacteristics. |

Note: | Social systems are among the most complex known. This poses particular problems for those who wish to understand them. The complexity often makes analytic approaches infeasible and natural language approaches inadequate forrelating intricate cause an d effect. However, individual- and agent-based computational approaches hold out the possibility of new and deeper understanding of such systems. Simulating Social Complexity examines all aspects of usingagent- or individual-based simulation. This approac h represents systems as individual elements having each their own set of differing states and internal processes. The interactions between elements in the simulation representinteractions in the target systems. What makes these elements social is that the y are usefully interpretable as interacting elements of an observed society. In this, the focus is on human society, but can be extended to includesocial animals or artificial agents where such work enhances our understanding of human society. The phenome na of interest then result (emerge) from the dynamics of the interaction of social actors in an essential way and are usuallynot easily simplifiable by, for example, considering only representative actors. The introduction of accessible agent-based modell ing allows the representation of social complexity in a more natural and direct manner than previoustechniques. In particular, it is no longer necessary to distort a model with the introduction of overly strong assumptions simply in order to obtain analyt ic tractability. This makes agent-based modelling relatively accessible to arange of scientists. The outcomes of such models can be displayed and animated in ways that also make them more interpretable by experts and stakeholders. This handbook is intende d to help in the process of maturation of this newfield. It brings together, through the collaborative effort of many leading researchers, summaries of the best thinking and practice in this a |

Note: | Theoretical investigations of atoms and molecules interacting with pulsed or continuous wave lasers up to atomic field strengths on the order of 10^16 W/cm are leading to an understanding of many challenging experimentaldiscoveries.This book deals wi th the basics of femtosecond physics and goes up to the latest applications of new phenomena. The book presents an introduction to laser physics with mode-locking and pulsed laser operation. The solutionof the time-dependent Schrdinger equation is discuss ed both analytically and numerically.The basis for the non-perturbative treatment of laser-matter interaction in the book is the numerical solution of the time-dependentSchrdinger equation. The light field is treated classically, and different possible ga uges are discussed. Physical phenonema, ranging from Rabi-oscillations in two-level systems to the ionization of atoms, the generation of highharmonics, the ionization and dissociation of molecules as well as the control of chemical reactions are presente d and discussed on a fundamental level. In this way the theoretical background for state of the art experiments withstrong and short laser pulses is given. The text is augmented by more than thirty exercises, whose worked-out solutions are given in the la st chapter. Some detailed calculations are performed in the appendices. Furthermore, eachchapter ends with references to more specialized literature |

Note: | The rheology of dense red blood cell suspensions is investigated via computer simulations based on the lattice Boltzmann, the immersed boundary, and the finite element methods. The red blood cells are treated as extended anddeformable particles immer sed in the ambient fluid. In the first part of the work, the numerical model and strategies for stress evaluation are discussed. In the second part, the behavior of the suspensions in simple shear flow isstudied for different volume fractions, particle de formabilities, and shear rates. Shear thinning behavior is recovered. The existence of a shear-induced transition from a tumbling to a tank-treading motion is demonstrated. Thetransition can be parameterized by a single quantity, namely the effective capi llary number. It is the ratio of the suspension stress and the characteristic particle membrane stress. At the transition point, a strong increase in theorientational order of the red blood cells and a significant decrease of the particle diffusivity are observed. However, the average cell deformation shows no signature of the transition |

Note: | Quantum effects in macroscopic systems have long been a fascination for researchers. Over the past decade mechanical oscillators have emerged as a leading system of choice for many such experiments. The work reported in thisthesis investigates the ef fects of the radiation-pressure force of light on macroscopic mechanical structures. The basic system studied is a mechanical oscillator that is highly reflective and part of an optical resonator. It interactswith the optical cavity mode via the radiation -pressure force. Both the dynamics of the mechanical oscillation and the properties of the light field are modified through this interaction. The experiments use quantum optical tools (suchas homodyning and down-conversion) with the goal of ultimately sho wing quantum behavior of the mechanical center of mass motion. Of particular value are the detailed descriptions of several novel experiments that pave the way towardsthis goal and are already shaping the field of quantum optomechanics, in particular opto mechanical laser cooling and strong optomechanical coupling |

Note: | In recent years, remarkable progress in the fabrication of novel mesoscopic devices has produced a revival of interest in quantum Hall physics. New types of measurements, more precise and efficient than ever, have made itpossible to focus closely on the electronic properties of quantum Hall edge states. This is achieved by applying charge and heat currents at mesoscopic length scales, attaching metallic gates and Ohmic contacts, and splitting edgechannels with the help of quantum point contacts. The experiments reveal fascinating new phenomena, such as the interference, statistics, and topological phase shifts of fractionally charged quasi-particles, strong interaction andcorrelation effects, and phase transitions induced by non-Gaussian fluctuations . The thesis discusses some puzzling results of these experiments and presents a coherent picture of mesoscopic effects in quantum Hall systems, whichaccounts for integer and fractional filling factors and ranges from microscopic theory to effective model s, and covers both equilibrium and non-equilibrium phenomena |

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 |

Note: | The thermodynamics of strongly interacting matter has become a profound and challenging area of modern physics, both in theory and in experiment. Statistical quantum chromodynamics, through analytical as well as numerical studies,provides the main th eoretical tool, while in experiment, high-energy nuclear collisions are the key for extensive laboratory investigations. The field therefore straddles statistical, particle and nuclear physics, both conceptually andin the methods of investigation used. Th is course-tested primer addresses above all the many young scientists starting their scientific research in this field, providing them with a general, self-contained introduction thatemphasizes in particular the basic concepts and ideas, with the aim of e xplaining why we do what we do. To achieve this goal, the present text concentrates mainly on equilibrium thermodynamics: first, the fundamental ideas of stronginteraction thermodynamics are introduced and then the main concepts and methods used in the st udy of the physics of complex systems are summarized. Subsequently, simplified phenomenological pictures, leading to critical behavior inhadronic matter and to hadron-quark phase transitions are introduced, followed by elements of finite-temperature latti ce QCD leading to the important results obtained in computer simulation studies of the lattice approach. Next, therelation of the resulting critical behavior to symmetry breaking/restoration in QCD is clarified before the text turns to the study of the QC D phase diagram. The presentation of bulk equilibrium thermodynamics is completed by studyingthe properties of the quark-gluon plasma as new state of strongly interacting matter.The final chapters of the book are devoted to more specific topics which aris e when nuclear collisions are considered as a tool for the experimentalstudy of QCD thermodynamics |

Note: | Electroweak and Strong Interaction: Phenomenology, Concepts, Models, begins with relativistic quantum mechanics and some quantum field theory which lay the foundation for the rest of the text. The phenomenology and the physics ofthe fundamental inter actions are emphasized through a detailed discussion of the empirical fundamentals of unified theories of strong, electromagnetic, and weak interactions. The principles of local gauge theories are described both ina heuristic and a geometric framework. Th e minimal standard model of the fundamental interactions is developed in detail and characteristic applications are worked out. Possible signals of physics beyond that model, notably in thephysics of neutrinos are also discussed. Among the applications sc attering on nucleons and on nuclei provide salient examples. Numerous exercises with solutions make the text suitable for advanced courses or individual study. Thiscompletely updated revised new edition contains an enlarged chapter on quantum chromodynami cs and a widely updated chapter on neutrino physics |

Note: | In this third volume of his modern introduction to quantum field theory, Eberhard Zeidler examines the mathematical and physical aspects of gauge theory as a principle tool for describing the four fundamental forces which act inthe universe: gravitat ive, electromagnetic, weak interaction and strong interaction. Volume III concentrates on the classical aspects of gauge theory, describing the four fundamental forces by the curvature of appropriate fiberbundles. This must be supplemented by the crucial , but elusive quantization procedure. The book is arranged in four sections, devoted to realizing the universal principle force equals curvature: Part I: The Euclidean Manifold asa Paradigm Part II: Ariadne's Thread in Gauge Theory Part III: Einstein's Theory of Special Relativity Part IV: Ariadne's Thread in Cohomology For students of mathematics the book is designed to demonstrate that detailed knowledgeof the physical background helps to reveal interesting interrelationships among diverse mathematic al topics. Physics students will be exposed to a fairly advanced mathematics, beyond the level covered in the typical physics curriculum. Quantum Field Theory builds a bridge between mathematicians and physicists, based on challenging questions about the fundamental forces in the universe (macrocosmos), and in the world of elementary particles (microcosmos) |

Note: | This volume deals with the theory of finite topological spaces and its relationship with the homotopy and simple homotopy theory of polyhedra. The interaction between their intrinsic combinatorial and topological structures makesfinite spaces a usefu l tool for studying problems in Topology, Algebra and Geometry from a new perspective. In particular, the methods developed in this manuscript are used to study Quillens conjecture on the poset of p-subgroups ofa finite group and the Andrews-Curtis conjec ture on the 3-deformability of contractible two-dimensional complexes. This self-contained work constitutes the first detailed exposition on the algebraic topology of finite spaces. It isintended for topologists and combinatorialists, but it is also recom mended for advanced undergraduate students and graduate students with a modest knowledge of Algebraic Topology |

Note: | Wave Turbulence refers to the statistical theory of weakly nonlinear dispersive waves. There is a wide and growing spectrum of physical applications, ranging from sea waves, to plasma waves, to superfluid turbulence, to nonlinearoptics and Bose-Einst ein condensates. Beyond the fundamentals the book thus also covers new developments such as the interaction of random waves with coherent structures (vortices, solitons, wave breaks), inverse cascades leading tocondensation and the transitions between wea k and strong turbulence, turbulence intermittency as well as finite system size effects, such as frozen turbulence, discrete wave resonances and avalanche-type energy cascades. Thisbook is an outgrow of several lectures courses held by the author and, as a result, written and structured rather as a graduate text than a monograph, with many exercises and solutions offered along the way. The present compactdescription primarily addresses students and non-specialist researchers wishing to enter and work in t his field |

Note: | Nowadays experimental nuclear physics pushes its limits towards highly unstable nuclei. The theoretical description of proton-rich and neutronrich nuclei or superheavy elements has become an important part of the modern nuclearphysics. The main tool to investigate such unstable nuclei concerns radioactive decays, from proton emission to fission processes. We review the main theoretical methods describing decay processes induced by the strong interaction,like Coupled channels method for Gamow resonanc es, R-matrix theory, Distorted wave approach, Semiclassical approach, Multi step and Two center shell model. Thus, most of the book is addressed to a broad audience within the nuclearphysics community. Secondly, this book is an attempt to clarify some fun damental aspects connected with the fine structure or anisotropy in alpha decay and ternary cold fission. Finally, the self consistent microscopic theory of thealpha decay is analyzed |

Note: | This textbook on Quantum Electrodynamics is a thorough introductory text providing all necessary mathematical tools together with many examples and worked problems. In their presentation of the subject the authors adopt aheuristic approach based on t he propagator formalism. The latter is introduced in the first two chapters in both its nonrelativistic and relativistic versions. Subsequently, a large number of scattering and radiation processesinvolving electrons, positrons, and photons are introduced and their theoretical treatment is presented in great detail. Higher order processes and renormalization are also included. The book concludes with a discussion of two-particlestates and the interaction of spinless bosons. This completely revised and cor rected new edition provides several additions to enable deeper insight in formalism and application of quantum electrodynamics |

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: | Since the invention of the laser in the 1960s, people have strived to reach higher intensities and shorter pulse durations. High intensities and ultrashort pulse durations are intimately related. Recent developments have shownthat high intensity lase rs also open the way to realize pulses with the shortest durations to date, giving birth to the field of attosecond science (1 asec = 10-18s). This book is about high-intensity lasers and their applications. Thegoal is to give an up to date introduction t o the technology behind these laser systems and to the broad range of intense laser applications. These applications include AMO (atomic molecular and optical) physics, x-ray science,attosecond science, plasma physics and particle acceleration, condensed matter science and laser micromachining, and finally even high-energy physics |

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: | Theoretical femtosecond physics is a new field of research. Theoretical investigations of atoms and molecules interacting with pulsed or continuous wave lasers of up to atomic field strengths are leading to an understanding ofmany challenging experim ental discoveries. Laser-matter interaction is treated on a nonperturbative level in the book using approximate and numerical solutions of the time-dependent Schrdinger equation. The light field is treatedclassically. Physical phenomena, ranging from ioni zation of atoms to the ionization and dissociation of molecules and the control of chemical reactions are presented and discussed. Theoretical background for experiments with strong andshort laser pulses is given. Several exercises are included in the mai n text. Some detailed calculations are performed in the appendices |

Title: | Interactions Between Charged Particles in a Magnetic Field [electronic resource] : A Theoretical Approach to Ion Stopping in Magnetized Plasmas |
Author(s): |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This monograph focusses on the influence of a strong magnetic field on the interactions between charged particles in a many-body system. Two complementary approaches, the binary collision model and the dielectric theory areinvestigated in both analyt ical and numerical frameworks. In the binary collision model, the Coulomb interaction between the test and the target particles is screened because of the polarization of the target. In the continuumdielectric theory one considers the interactions between the test particle and its polarization cloud. In the presence of a strong magnetic field, there exists no suitable parameter of smallness. Linearized and perturbative treatmentsare not more valid and must be replaced by numerical grid or particle methods . Applications include the electron cooling of ion beams in storage rings and the final deceleration of antiprotons and heavy ion beams in traps |

Note: | The articles collected in this book cover a wide range of materials with extraordinary superconducting and magnetic properties. For many of the materials studied, strong electronic correlations provide a link between these twophenomena which were lon g thought to be highly antagonistic. Both the progress in our understanding of fundamental physical processes and the advances made towards the development of devices are reported here. The materials studiedcome in a variety of forms and shapes from bulk to epitaxial films, nano- and heterostructures down to those involving single molecules and double quantum dots. In some cases the structuring serves the study of bulk properties. Moreoften it is the change of these properties with nanostructuring and the properties of different materials in close proximity with each other that are of key interest because of possible application of these materials orheterostructures to quantum computing and spintronics |

Title: | Extreme Man-Made and Natural Hazards in Dynamics of Structures [electronic resource] |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | The book provides a critical assessment of the current knowledge and indicates new challenges which are brought about at present times by fighting man-made and natural hazards in transient analysis of structures. The latterconcerns both permanently f ixed structures, such as those built to protect people and/or sensitive storage material (e.g. military installations) or special structures found in transportation systems (e.g. bridges, tunnels), and movingstructures (such as trains, planes, ships or ca rs). The present threat of terrorist attacks or accidental explosions, the climate change which brings strong stormy winds or even the destructive earthquake motion that occurs inpreviously inactive regions or brings about tsunamis, are a few examples of the kind of applications addressed in this work. Problems of such diversity cannot be placed within a single traditional scientific discipline, but call forthe expertise in probability theory for quantifying the cause, interaction problems for better unde rstanding the physical nature of the problems, as well as modeling and computational techniques for improving the representation ofinelastic behavior mechanisms and providing the optimal design |

Title: | Particles and Nuclei [electronic resource] : An Introduction to the Physical Concepts |
Author(s): |
Bogdan Povh Klaus Rith Christoph Scholz Frank Zetsche |
Date: | 2006 |
Edition: | Fifth Edition |
Publisher: | Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This well-known introductory textbook gives a uniform presentation of nuclear and particle physics from an experimental point of view. The new edition has been extensively revised and updated. The first part, Analysis, is devotedto disentangling the substructure of matter. This part shows that experiments designed to uncover the substructures of nuclei and nucleons have a similar conceptual basis, and lead to the present picture of all matter being constructedfrom a small number of elementary buildin g blocks and a small number of fundamental interactions. The second part, Synthesis, shows how the elementary particles may be combined to build hadrons and nuclei. The fundamental interactions,which are responsible for the forces in all systems, become l ess and less evident in increasingly complex systems. Such systems are in fact dominated by many-body phenomena. A section on neutrino oscillations and one on nuclear matterat high temperatures bridge the field of nuclear and particle physics and modern a strophysics and cosmology. New developments are covered, e. g. in sections on the double beta decay including a discussion of the possibility fora neutrinoless decay and its implications for the standard model. The concise text is based on lectures held a t the University of Heidelberg. It has been translated into many languages and has become a standard reference for advancedundergraduate and graduate courses and includes numerous exercises with worked answers |

Title: | Quantum Field Theory I: Basics in Mathematics and Physics [electronic resource] : A Bridge between Mathematicians and Physicists |

Note: | Springer e-book platform |
Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This is the first volume of a modern introduction to quantum field theory which addresses both mathematicians and physicists ranging from advanced undergraduate students to professional scientists. The book tries to bridge theexisting gap between the different languages used by mathematicians and physicists. For students of mathematics it is shown that detailed knowledge of the physical background helps to motivate the mathematical subjects and to discoverinteresting interrelationships between quite different mathematical topics. For students of physics, fairly advanced mathematics is presented, which is beyond the usual curriculum in physics. It is the author's goal to present thestate of the art of realizing Einstein's dream of a unified theory for the four fundamental forces in the universe (gravitational, electromagnetic, strong, and weak interaction). From the reviews: Quantum field theory is one ofthe great intellectual edifices in the history of human thought. This volume differs from other books on quantum field theory in its greater emphasis on the interaction of physics with mathematics. an impressive work ofscholarship. (William G. Faris, SIAM Review, Vol. 50 (2), 2008) it is a fun book for practicing quantum field theorists to browse, and it may be similarly enjoyed by mathematical colleagues. Its ultimate value may lie inencouraging students to enter this challenging interdisciplinary area of mathematics and physics. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through facu lty.

Note: | The theory of the muon anomalous magnetic moment is particle physics in a nutshell and as such is interesting, exciting and difficult. The current precision of the experimental value for this quantity, improved significantlyin the past several years due to experiment E821 at Brookhaven National Laboratory, is so high that a large number of subtle effects not relevant previously, become important for the interpretation of the experimental result. Thetheory of the muon anomalous magnetic moment is at t he cutting edge of current research in particle physics and includes multiloop calculations in both QED and electroweak theory, precision low-energy hadron physics, isospin violationsand scattering of light by light. Any deviation between the theoretical prediction and the experimental value might be interpreted as a signal of an as-yet-unknown new physics. This book provides a comprehensive review of the theory ofthe muon anomalous magnetic moment |
