Seller Rating:. Aitchison, A. Today, nuclear material is also largely employed for medical imaging and therapies, thus a part of the book is devoted to these technologies and to the consequent increase of public radiation exposure.
Gauge Theories in Particle Physics: A Practical Introduction, Fourth Edition - 2 Volume set
Finally, the last section focuses on regulatory issues, limitations and challenges. Meant for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students of health-physics and engineering courses, the book would also be a useful reference for scientists and professionals working in radiation protection, fuel-cycle technology and nuclear medicine.
More than problems with solutions accompany the text and many appendices provide background information. This review volume is motivated by the observation of a high-energy neutrino flux of extraterrestrial origin by the IceCube experiment at the South Pole. The study of neutrinos originating from violent astrophysical sources enhances our knowledge not only of cosmological phenomena but also of neutrinos themselves.
This book gives an overview of the current status of research in the field and of existing and future neutrino observatories. The first group of chapters present the physics of potential sources of high-energy neutrinos, including gamma-ray bursts, active galactic nuclei, star-forming galaxies and sources in the Milky Way. A chapter is then dedicated to the measurements performed by IceCube, the results of which are discussed in terms of energy spectrum, flavour-ratio and arrival-direction isotropy.
After a brief discussion of other research topics in which the study of high-energy astrophysical neutrinos can play an important role, such as the quest for dark matter, the book examines the next generation of cosmic neutrino detectors. In particular, the future KM3NeT experiment, which will consist of a network of underwater telescopes located in the Mediterranean Sea, and IceCube-Gen2, characterised by unprecedented sensitivity and higher angular resolution compared to IceCube, are described.

The Theory of Electroweak Interactions | SpringerLink
Simple ideas of group theory are now incorporated into the discussion of non-Abelian symmetries. Two new chapters have been added on QCD, one devoted to the renormalization group and scaling violations in deep inelastic scattering and the other to non-perturbative aspects of QCD using the lattice path-integral formulation of quantum field theory; the latter is also used to illuminate various aspects of renormalization theory, via analogies with condensed matter systems. Three chapters treat the fundamental topic of spontaneous symmetry breaking: the Bogoliubov superfluid and the BCS superconductor are studied in some detail; one chapter is devoted to the implications of global chiral symmetry breaking in QCD; and one to the breaking of local SU 2 xU 1 symmetry in the electroweak theory.
