Hydrogen Properties for Fusion Energy

Hydrogen Properties for Fusion Energy Lowest new price: $199.95

Author: P. Clark Souers


Cold Fusion: The Making of a Scientific Controversy

Cold Fusion: The Making of a Scientific Controversy Lowest new price: $9.49
Lowest used price: $2.80
List price: $16.95
Author: F. David Peat
Brand: Brand: Contemporary Books

The "cold fusion story" is told here in about the degree of detail characteristic of the special features pages of a good newspaper; those who followed the story as it broke will encounter here little or nothing that is new, but others may find this a handy resource. The author provides enough simple background material to permit non-scientific readers to understand the technical points at issue, and has been at pains not to take sides. The story may retain no relevance to the enduring substance of science, but it reveals tellingly some disturbing aspects of the contemporary practice of science. Nicely produced for a book rushed so quickly into print (the story "began", in a certain sense, on March 23, 1989 less than a year ago!), with a few simple figures.

An Introduction to Inertial Confinement Fusion (Series in Plasma Physics)

An Introduction to Inertial Confinement Fusion (Series in Plasma Physics) Lowest new price: $171.62
Lowest used price: $129.95
List price: $194.95
Author: Susanne Pfalzner

Newcomers to the field of inertial confinement fusion (ICF) often have difficulty establishing a clear picture of the overall field. The reason for this is because, while there are many books devoted to special topics within the field, there is none that provides an overview of the field as a whole. An Introduction to Inertial Confinement Fusion fills this gap with an overview of the processes involved in ICF presented at an accessible level. After a broad overview, the book follows the processes from the driver technology to burn physics in chronological order. As each topic appears, the author details the physical concepts and obstacles. The book concludes with a look to the future prospects of the field.


Fusion: A Voyage Through the Plasma Universe (Plasma Physics Series)

Fusion: A Voyage Through the Plasma Universe (Plasma Physics Series) Lowest new price: $24.95
Lowest used price: $15.45
List price: $71.95
Author: Hans Wilhelmsson
Brand: Brand: CRC Press

Journeying through fusion in the universe, Fusion: A Voyage Through the Plasma Universe discusses all aspects of fusion and how they relate to our universe. It also studies the attempts to produce fusion energy on Earth. The book addresses a wide range of topics from stars, galaxies, comets, pulsars, black holes, and quasars to the auroras, lightning, and fluorescent tubes.

Interestingly, the author explores how artists and authors like Vincent van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, and Hannes Alfvén have been fascinated by cosmic phenomena that rely on fusion and plasmas. He discusses motions in plasma, such as flames, waves, and whirls similar to those that occur in water.

The book also examines several other branches of science where parallels can be found with fusion plasmas, including ecological systems that provide only very short-term weather forecasts and the dramatic changes in the world economy with its explosive tendencies and sometimes catastrophic results. It briefly shows how these nonlinear phenomena are at the heart of modern fusion plasma theory.

Solar Neutrinos: The First Thirty Years (Frontiers in Physics)

Lowest new price: $37.37
Lowest used price: $6.95
List price: $83.00
Author: R. Davis Jr.

The papers reprinted in this book depict a research field that is poised to answer some of the fundamental questions of twentieth-century physics and astronomy: How does the sun shine? What is the dark matter? Is there new physics beyond the “standard model”?This book is of interest to students as well as active researchers in the scientific areas spanned by the reprinted papers, which include physics, chemistry, astronomy, geology, and engineering. Historians of science, some of whom have already used the solar neutrino problem as a case study, will also find this collection a rich source of examples and insights. Solar Neutrinos gives on the special feeling of being present at the birth of a scientific field. The physical ideas are presented with a simplicity that is unusual in review of papers. By delving into the scientific landmarks reprinted here, one can see clearly how researchers-starting with a paucity of data and with conflicting hypothesis-struggled together to grope their way to a better understanding of the sun and of weak interaction physics.


Fission and Properties of Neutron-Rich Nuclei: Proceedings of the Third International Conference, Sanibel Island, Florida, USA, 3-9 November 2002

Fission and Properties of Neutron-Rich Nuclei: Proceedings of the Third International Conference, Sanibel Island, Florida, USA, 3-9 November 2002 Lowest used price: $30.34
List price: $308.00

Presenting more than 100 papers devoted to the understanding of fission processes and neutron-rich nuclei, this book covers all forms of fission, from spontaneous fission of 252Cf to high-energy fragmentation. Together with studies on properties of neutron-rich nuclei and astrophysics, the book also features new experimental techniques, directions and the emerging new radioactive beam facilities.
