### The Standard Model and Beyond

#### 2nd Edition

This new edition of The Standard Model and Beyond presents an advanced introduction to the physics and formalism of the standard model and other non-abelian gauge theories. It provides a solid background for understanding supersymmetry, string theory, extra dimensions, dynamical symmetry breaking,…

CRC Press*Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation*### An Introduction to Beam Physics

#### 1st Edition

The field of beam physics touches many areas of physics, engineering, and the sciences. In general terms, beams describe ensembles of particles with initial conditions similar enough to be treated together as a group so that the motion is a weakly nonlinear perturbation of a chosen reference…

CRC Press*Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation*### Neutrino Physics

#### 2nd Edition

When Kai Zuber’s pioneering text on neutrinos was published in 2003, the author correctly predicted that the field would see tremendous growth in the immediate future. In that book, Professor Zuber provided a comprehensive self-contained examination of neutrinos, covering their research history and…

CRC Press*Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation*### Group Theory for the Standard Model of Particle Physics and Beyond

#### 1st Edition

Based on the author’s well-established courses, Group Theory for the Standard Model of Particle Physics and Beyond explores the use of symmetries through descriptions of the techniques of Lie groups and Lie algebras. The text develops the models, theoretical framework, and mathematical tools to…

CRC Press*Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation*### Particle and Astroparticle Physics

#### 1st Edition

From superstring theory to models with extra dimensions to dark matter and dark energy, a range of theoretically stimulating ideas have evolved for physics beyond the standard model. These developments have spawned a new area of physics that centers on the interplay between particle physics and…

CRC Press*Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation*### Joint Evolution of Black Holes and Galaxies

#### 1st Edition

Black holes are among the most mysterious objects that the human mind has been capable of imagining. As pure mathematical constructions, they are tools for exploiting the fundamental laws of physics. As astronomical sources, they are part of our cosmic landscape, warping space-time, coupled to the…

CRC Press*Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation*### Gravitation

#### From the Hubble Length to the Planck Length, 1st Edition

Although gravity is the dominant force of nature at large distances (from intermediate scales to the Hubble length), it is the weakest of forces in particle physics, though it is believed to become important again at very short scales (the Planck length). The conditions created in particle…

CRC Press*Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation*### The Mathematical Theory of Cosmic Strings

#### Cosmic Strings in the Wire Approximation, 1st Edition

This book is a comprehensive survey of the current state of knowledge about the dynamics and gravitational properties of cosmic strings treated in the idealized classical approximation as line singularities described by the Nambu-Goto action. The author's purpose is to provide a standard reference…

CRC Press*Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation*### Geometry and Physics of Branes

#### 1st Edition

Branes are solitonic configurations of a string theory that are represented by extended objects in a higher-dimensional space-time. They are essential for a comprehension of the non-perturbative aspects of string theory, in particular, in connection with string dualities. From the mathematical…

CRC Press*Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation*### Modern Cosmology

#### 1st Edition

Cosmology is a relatively new science, but cosmological questions are as old as mankind. Turning philosophical and metaphysical problems into problems that physics can treat, and hopefully solve, has been an achievement of the twentieth century. Modern Cosmology brings together contributions from a…

CRC Press*Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation*### Gravitation and Gauge Symmetries

#### 1st Edition

In the course of the development of electromagnetic, weak and strong interactions, the concept of (internal) gauge invariance grew up and established itself as an unavoidable dynamical principle in particle physics. It is less known that the principle of equivalence, and the basic dynamical…

CRC Press*Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation*### Gravitational Waves

#### 1st Edition

Gravitational waves (GWs) are a hot topic and promise to play a central role in astrophysics, cosmology, and theoretical physics. Technological developments have led us to the brink of their direct observation, which could become a reality in the coming years. The direct observation of GWs will…

CRC Press*Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation*### Classical and Quantum Black Holes

#### 1st Edition

Black holes are becoming increasingly important in contemporary research in astrophysics, cosmology, theoretical physics, and mathematics. Indeed, they provoke some of the most fascinating questions in fundamental physics, which may lead to revolutions in scientific thought. Written by…

CRC Press*Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation*### Pulsars as Astrophysical Laboratories for Nuclear and Particle Physics

#### 1st Edition

Pulsars, generally accepted to be rotating neutron stars, are dense, neutron-packed remnants of massive stars that blew apart in supernova explosions. They are typically about 10 kilometers across and spin rapidly, often making several hundred rotations per second. Depending on star mass, gravity…

CRC Press*Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation*### The World in Eleven Dimensions

#### Supergravity, supermembranes and M-theory, 1st Edition

A unified theory embracing all physical phenomena is a major goal of theoretical physics. In the early 1980s, many physicists looked to eleven-dimensional supergravity in the hope that it might provide that elusive superunified theory. In 1984 supergravity was knocked off its pedestal by…

CRC Press*Series in High Energy Physics, Cosmology and Gravitation*### Introduction to Supersymmetric Field Theory

#### 1st Edition

Ideas and Methods of Supersymmetry and Supergravity: Or a Walk Through Superspace provides a comprehensive, detailed, and self-contained account of four dimensional simple supersymmetry and supergravity. Throughout the book, the authors cultivate their material in detail with calculations and full…
