Introduction to Elementary Particles
Lowest new price: $58.91
Lowest used price: $51.50
List price: $110.00
Author: David Griffiths
Brand: imusti

In the second, revised edition of a wellestablished textbook, the author strikes a balance between quantitative rigor and intuitive understanding, using a lively, informal style. The first chapter provides a detailed historical introduction to the subject, while subsequent chapters offer a quantitative presentation of the Standard Model. A simplified introduction to the Feynman rules, based on a "toy" model, helps readers learn the calculational techniques without the complications of spin. It is followed by accessible treatments of quantum electrodynamics, the strong and weak interactions, and gauge theories. New chapters address neutrino oscillations and prospects for physics beyond the Standard Model. The book contains a number of worked examples and many endofchapter problems. A complete solution manual is available for instructors.

Transverse Spin Physics
Lowest new price: $127.99
Lowest used price: $30.98
List price: $128.00
Author: Philip G Ratcliffe

This book is devoted to the theory and phenomenology of transversespin effects in highenergy hadronic physics. Contrary to common past belief, it is now rather clear that such effects are far from irrelevant. A decade or so of intense theoretical work has shed much light on the subject and brought to surface an entire class of new phenomena, which now await thorough experimental investigation. Over the next few years a number of experiments worldwide (at BNL, CERN, DESY and JLAB) will run with transversely polarised beams and targets, providing data that will enrich our knowledge of the transversespin structure of hadrons. It is therefore timely to assess the state of the art, and this is the principal aim of the volume.An outline of the book is as follows. After a few introductory remarks (Chapter 1), attention is directed in Chapter 2 to transversely polarised deeplyinelastic scattering (DIS), which probes the transverse spin structure function g_{2}. This existing data are reviewed and discussed (for completeness, a brief presentation of longitudinally polarised DIS is also provided). In Chapter 3 the transversespin structure of the proton is illustrated in detail, with emphasis on the transversity distribution and the twistthree parton distribution contributing to g_{2}. Model calculations of these quantities are also presented. In Chapter 4, the QCD evolution of transversity is studied at leading and nexttoleading order. Chapter 5 illustrates the g_{2} structure function and its related sum rules within the framework of perturbative QCD. The last three chapters are devoted to the phenomenology of transversity, in the context of DrellYan processes (Chapter 6), inclusive leptoproduction (Chapter 7) and inclusive hadroproduction (Chapter 8). The interpretation of some recent singlespin asymmetry data is discussed and the prospects for future measurements are reviewed.


Higher Spin Gauge Theories
Lowest new price: $95.00
Lowest used price: $114.81
List price: $95.00
Author: Lars Brink

Symmetries play a fundamental role in physics. NonAbelian gauge symmetries are the symmetries behind theories for massless spin1 particles, while the reparametrization symmetry is behind Einstein's gravity theory for massless spin2 particles. In supersymmetric theories these particles can be connected also to massless fermionic particles. Does Nature stop at spin2 or can there also be massless higher spin theories. In the past strong indications have been given that such theories do not exist. However, in recent times ways to evade those constraints have been found and higher spin gauge theories have been constructed. With the advent of the AdS/CFT duality correspondence even stronger indications have been given that higher spin gauge theories play an important role in fundamental physics.
All these issues were discussed at an international workshop in Singapore in November 2015 where the leading scientists in the field participated. This volume presents an uptodate, detailed overview of the theories including its historic background, as well as the latest accomplishments in understanding the foundational properties of higher spin physics.
Readership: Researchers and academics in theoretical high energy physics.


Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs: The Astounding Interconnectedness of the Universe
Lowest new price: $9.48
Lowest used price: $3.55
List price: $16.99
Author: Lisa Randall
Brand: Ecco Press

“A cracking read, combining storytelling of the highest order with a trove of information. . . . What’s remarkable is that it all fits together.”—Wall Street Journal “Successful science writing tells a complete story of the ‘how’—the methodical marvel building up to the ‘why’—and Randall does just that.”—New York Times Book Review “[Randall] is a lucid explainer, streetwise and informal. Without jargon or mathematics, she steers us through centuries of sometimes tortuous astronomical history.”—The Guardian In Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs, Professor Lisa Randall, one of today’s most influential theoretical physicists, takes readers on an intellectual adventure through the history of the cosmos, showing how events in the farthest reaches of the Universe created the conditions for life—and death—on our planet. Sixtysix million years ago, an object the size of a city crashed into Earth, killing off the dinosaurs, along with threequarters of the planet’s species. Challenging the usual assumptions about the simple makeup of the unseen material that constitutes 85% of the matter in the Universe, Randall explains how a disk of dark matter in the Milky Way plane might have triggered the cataclysm. But Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs does more than present a radical idea. With clarity and wit, it explains the nature of the Universe, dark matter, the Milky Way galaxy, comets, asteroids, and impacts. This breathtaking synthesis, illuminated by pop culture references and social and political viewpoints, reveals the deep relationships among the small and the large, the visible and the hidden, as well as the astonishing beauty of the connections that surround us. It’s impossible to read this book and look at either the Earth or the sky again in the same way.

An Introduction To Black Holes, Information And The String Theory Revolution: The Holographic Universe
Lowest new price: $17.98
Lowest used price: $6.16
List price: $19.00
Author: Leonard Susskind
Brand: imusti

Over the last decade the physics of black holes has been revolutionized by developments that grew out of Jacob Bekenstein s realization that black holes have entropy. Stephen Hawking raised profound issues concerning the loss of information in black hole evaporation and the consistency of quantum mechanics in a world with gravity. For two decades these questions puzzled theoretical physicists and eventually led to a revolution in the way we think about space, time, matter and information. This revolution has culminated in a remarkable principle called The Holographic Principle , which is now a major focus of attention in gravitational research, quantum field theory and elementary particle physics. Leonard Susskind, one of the coinventors of the Holographic Principle as well as one of the founders of String theory, develops and explains these concepts.
