By B. G. Sidharth (Ed.),B. G. Sidharth

Shortly after its inauguration in 1985 the Birla technological know-how Centre, Hyderabad, India, began a chain of lectures by way of Nobel Laureates and different scientists of overseas renown, totally on Physics and Astronomy. the current assortment more often than not contains lectures on frontier subject matters. The transcript of every lecture is preceded by way of a quick biography of the Nobel Laureate/Scientist in query. The lectures are geared toward a large non-specialist yet better proficient audience.

Atomic and Molecular Beams: Production and Collimation

Atomic and molecular beams are hired in physics and chemistry experiments and, to a lesser quantity, within the organic sciences. those beams permit atoms to be studied lower than collision-free stipulations and make allowance the learn in their interplay with different atoms, charged debris, radiation, and surfaces.

Werner Heisenberg - Die Sprache der Atome: Leben und Wirken - Eine wissenschaftliche Biographie - Die "Fröhliche Wissenschaft" (Jugend bis Nobelpreis) (German Edition)

Die Entdeckung Heisenbergs, dass sich Messwerte komplementärer Größen in der mikroskopischen Welt nicht beliebig genau bestimmen lassen, vollendete die von Planck, Einstein und anderen entwickelten Quantentheorie und eröffnete ein neues „goldenes Zeitalter" der Physik. Der letzte Doktorand Werner Heisenbergs verarbeitet in dieser Biografie eigene Erinnerungen und stützt sich auf Zeitzeugen sowie Manuskripte und Publikationen Heisenbergs.

Scattering Amplitudes in Gauge Theory and Gravity

Offering a complete, pedagogical creation to scattering amplitudes in gauge idea and gravity, this booklet is perfect for graduate scholars and researchers. It bargains a tender transition from uncomplicated wisdom of quantum box conception to the frontier of contemporary learn. construction on easy quantum box concept, the ebook begins with an advent to the spinor helicity formalism within the context of Feynman ideas for tree-level amplitudes.

Fundamentals of Nuclear Physics

This publication introduces the present realizing of the basics of nuclear physics by way of relating key experimental information and through offering a theoretical knowing of critical nuclear homes. It essentially covers the constitution of nuclei at low excitation intimately. It additionally examines nuclear forces and rot houses.
