Symmetry and fundamental physics : Tom Kibble at 80 by
Jerome Gauntlett(
Book
)
4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tom Kibble is an inspirational theoretical physicist who has made profound contributions to our understanding of the physical world. To celebrate his 80th birthday a oneday symposium was held on March 13, 2013 at the Blackett Laboratory, Imperial College, London. This important volume is a compilation of papers based on the presentations that were given at the symposium. The symposium profiled various aspects of Tom's long scientific career. The tenor of the meeting was set in the first talk given by Neil Turok, director of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, who described Tom as "our guru and example". He gave a modern overview of cosmological theories, including a discussion of Tom's pioneering work on how topological defects might have formed in the early universe during symmetrybreaking phase transitions. Wojciech Zurek of Los Alamos National Laboratory continued with this theme, surveying analogous processes within the context of condensed matter systems and explaining the KibbleZurek scaling phenomenon. The day's events were concluded by Jim Virdee of Imperial College, who summarized the epic and successful quest of finding the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. At the end of the talk, there was a standing ovation for Tom that lasted several minutes. In the evening, Steven Weinberg gave a keynote presentation to a capacity audience of 700 people. He talked eruditely on symmetry breaking and its role in elementary particle physics. At the banquet dinner, Frank Close of Oxford University concluded the banquet speeches by summarizing the significance of Tom's contributions to the creation of the Standard Model

Kinematics of General Scattering Processes and the Mandelstam Representation by
T. W. B Kibble(
)
1 edition published in 1960 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The kinematics of an arbitrary process involving two incoming and two outgoing particles is studied in terms of the invariants used in Mandelstam's representation, treating the three processes described by the same Green's function simultaneously. It is shown that the physical regions for these processes are bounded by a cubic curve in the plane of the two independent invariants. The unitarity conditions are discussed in the approximation of neglecting intermediate states of more than two particles. The formula for the spectral functions of the double dispersion relation is obtained explicitly in terms of the invariants chosen

Topics in quantum field theory : 1. Schwinger's action principle ; 2. Dispersion relations for inelastic scattering processes by
T. W. B Kibble(
)
1 edition published in 1958 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The subject matter of this thesis falls into two distinct parts. Chapters II to IV are devoted to a discussion of Schwinger's action principle, and chapters V and VI are concerned with the proof of dispersion relations for inelastic mesonnucleon scattering. The material of chapter II is based on some work done in collaboration with Dr. J.C. Polkinghorne, which has been published (Kibble and Polkinghorne 1957). This work was concerned with the clarification of certain points connected with the class of permissible variations in Schwinger's principle. There are, however, substantial changes in the present treatment, principally deriving from the introduction, in section II5, of the concept of relative phases. This chapter is restricted to the case of nonrelativistic quantum theory, and the discussion is extended to relativistic quantum field theory in chapter III. These chapters are devoted to a reformulation of Schwinger's action principle, and an investigation of the consequences of the new form of the action principle. Some of this material is necessarily contained in the work of Schwinger (1951, 1953a), but the treatment differs from his in several important respects. These are discussed in greater detail in section 2. Chapter IV is devoted to a discussion of higher order spinor Lagrangians, with particular reference to the use of a twocomponent field satisfying a secondorder equation rather than a fourcomponent spinor satisfying a firstorder equation. This procedure has been suggested by Feynman and GellMann (1958) in connection with their universal Fermi interaction. The work presented in this chapter was done jointly with Dr. J.C. Polkinghorne, and has been published (Kibble and Polkinghorne 1958). Chapters V and VI are devoted to a proof of the dispersion relations for the process in which a single meson is scattered on a nucleon into a state with several mesons. The proof follows the general lines of that by Bogolyubov, Medvedev and Polivanov (1956) for the case of elastic mesonnucleon scattering, This work has also been published (Kibble 1958). The notation employed in the thesis is summarized in appendix A. Appendix B is devoted to a discussion of consistency conditions on the Lagrangian function. The chapter number is omitted in references to sections or equations, except in the case of cross references between chapters
