Download E-books QUANTUM. : The quantum theory of particules, fields, and cosmology PDF

By Edgard Elbaz

A brand new method of the instructing of quantum physics. the 1st seven chapters current nonrelativistic quantum mechanics and its interpretation, in addition to perturbations and scattering concept. whereas together with Dirac's and Feynman's formalisms, the bankruptcy on symmetry additionally treats gauge modifications. The quantum idea of angular momentum contains the isospin of leptons and quarks and makes use of as a brand new instrument the graphical spin algebra. the second one a part of the publication is dedicated to quantum fields: Boson fields together with Higgs fields, Dirac's concept of Fermion fields, quantum electrodynamic and quantum chromodynamics. the full is rounded off via a short evaluation bound to bring up the scholars' pursuits in quantum cosmology.
Readers also will locate many specified labored examples and various difficulties designed to check their very own knowing.

Within the moment, revised variation of a well-established textbook, the writer moves a stability among quantitative rigor and intuitive realizing, utilizing a full of life, casual sort. the 1st bankruptcy presents a close old advent to the topic, whereas next chapters provide a quantitative presentation of the traditional version. A simplified creation to the Feynman principles, according to a "toy" version, is helping readers examine the calculational ideas with out the problems of spin. it really is by way of obtainable remedies of quantum electrodynamics, the robust and susceptible interactions, and gauge theories. New chapters handle neutrino oscillations and customers for physics past the traditional version. The booklet incorporates a variety of labored examples and lots of end-of-chapter difficulties. an entire answer guide is on the market for teachers.

Download E-books The Particle Hunters PDF

From the hot discovery of the "top quark" to the quest for the Higgs particle, the frontiers of particle physics beckon the mind's eye. Exploring intimately the complete heritage of particle physics, Yuval Ne'eman and Yoram Kirsh clarify in an attractive, nonmathematical variety the foundations of contemporary theories corresponding to quantum mechanics and Einstein's relativity, and so they brilliantly reach conveying to the reader the thrill that followed the unique discoveries. The ebook is spiced with a laugh tales on how nice discoveries have been made, and Ne'eman, who took an energetic function in a number of the historic advances in particle physics, offers his own standpoint. New to this variation are sections at the discovery of the head quark; the increase and fall of the supercollider undertaking; the detection of the Zo particle in e+e- colliders; and using the width of the Zo to figure out the variety of "generations" of quarks and leptons. The Particle Hunters will curiosity somebody who desires to hold speed with the development of human wisdom. Yuval Ne'eman chanced on the fundamental symmetry of the subatomic debris of subject, best him to their type, to the prediction of recent debris, and to his id (in 1962) of a brand new layer within the constitution of topic ("quarks"). Yoram Kirsh used to be provided the Aharon Katzir Prize for well known technology writing in 1975.

Download E-books Particle Metaphysics: A Critical Account of Subatomic Reality (The Frontiers Collection) PDF

By Brigitte Falkenburg

Are the debris of contemporary physics "real" or are they digital entities, their life deduced in simple terms by means of summary theories? This ebook examines the continued debate in regards to the internal structure of topic by means of exploring the particle notion in physics. It investigates if the debris of particle physics are actual or no longer. Readers drawn to the "true which means" of such actual innovations will locate this booklet informative and concept provoking.

By Walter Greiner

The 3rd version of this remarkable quantity has been broadly revised and enlarged to hide all new features in Quantum chromodynamics. It first studies relativistic quantum box concept and information scattering concept within the framework of scalar quantum electrodynamics. The e-book then introduces the gauge concept of quarks and gluons. additionally, extra complicated chapters current a via dialogue of perturbative and nonperturbative innovations in state of the art QCD. all through, worked-out examples supply hands-on event for college students in theoretical physics. examine scientists also will locate the ebook an awesome reference.

Download E-books Die Entdeckung des Unteilbaren: Quanten, Quarks und die Entdeckung des Higgs-Teilchens (German Edition) PDF

By Jörg Resag

Mitten in Europa ist eine der größten und komplexesten Maschinen in Betrieb gegangen, die wir Menschen je gebaut haben: der huge Hadron Collider (kurz LHC). Mit ihm öffnet sich ein Fenster in eine neue Welt, die viele Geheimnisse birgt: used to be verleiht den Teilchen der Materie ihre Masse? Gibt es verborgene Raumdimensionen? Existiert ein tiefer Zusammenhang zwischen Teilchen mit verschiedenem Spin (Supersymmetrie)? Woraus besteht die dunkle Materie, die unser Universum durchdringt? Gibt es das Higgs-Teilchen?

Mit diesem Buch taucht der Leser ein in diese wunderbare Welt, die wir Menschen in der Neuzeit entdeckt haben: Atome und ihre Substruktur aus Quarks und Leptonen, die rätselhafte Quantenmechanik, Teilchen des Lichts, Einsteins Gewebe aus Raum und Zeit, die vier Wechselwirkungen und schließlich die neue Welt, in die der LHC gerade vordringt und in der wir Higgs-Teilchen, Supersymmetrie und womöglich erste Anzeichen für die String-Theorie vermuten. Die erste Vermutung konnte mittlerweile bestätigt werden: Im Sommer 2012 wurde am LHC die Entdeckung des Higgs-Teilchens bekannt gegeben.

Nach der Lektüre ist klar: Wir leben in einer erstaunlichen Welt und sind gerade im Begriff, bei der Enträtselung ihrer Geheimnisse einen entscheidenden Schritt nach vorne zu gehen. Für die 2. Auflage hat der Autor das Buch aktualisiert und um neueste Erkenntnisse ergänzt.

Über den Autor:

Jörg Resag hat in Bonn Physik und Astronomie studiert und in theoretischer Physik über die Quarkstruktur von Elementarteilchen promoviert.
Er arbeitet derzeit in der chemisch-pharmazeutischen Industrie.
Im Spektrum-Verlag ist 2012 sein zweites Buch "Zeitpfad -- Die Geschichte unseres Universums und unseres Planeten" erschienen.

Leserstimmen zur ersten Auflage:

Dem theoretischen Physiker Jörg Resag ist ein sehr interessantes, unterhaltsames und didaktisch exzellentes Buch gelungen, das sowohl interessierten Laien wie Experten die Geheimnisse der Quantenphysik, das Standardmodell, die Relativitätstheorie und Kosmologie und schließlich die Superstrings vorstellt. (...) Sehr komplexe Zusammenhänge werden sehr klar und verständlich erläutert.

Treffpunkt Buch plus

Kein einfaches, aber dafür höchst empfehlenswertes Werk.
