Fundamentals in nuclear physics : from nuclear structure to cosmology by J. L Basdevant( Book )

20 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This course explores nuclear physics and its applications ranging from the structure of nuclei and their reactions, to astrophysics and cosmology. The physics is introduced with arguments based on simple ideas such as the empirical structure of nuclear forces and its interplay with the Pauli principle and Coulomb repulsion. The book then develops elementary nuclear models and illustrates nuclear systematics with experimental data. Reactions and decays are discussed both phenomenologically and from the point of view of fundamental electro-weak interaction theory. The discussions of fission and fusion emphasize nuclear energy production. This leads directly into nuclear astrophysics and nucleosynthesis. The book ends with a presentation of the latest ideas about cosmology. As a primer this course will lay the foundations for more specialized subjects within the vast domain of nuclear physics as a whole." "This book emerged from a series of tropical courses the authors delivered at the Ecole Polytechnique and will be useful for advanced undergraduates and for scientists in a variety of fields."--Jacket

Lectures on quantum mechanics by J. L Basdevant( Book )

14 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beautifully illustrated and engagingly written, Lectures on Quantum Mechanics presents theoretical physics with a breathtaking array of examples and anecdotes. Basdevant's style is clear and stimulating, in the manner of a brisk classroom lecture that students can follow with ease and enjoyment. Here is a sample of the book's style, from the opening of Chapter 1: "If one were to ask a passer-by to quote a great formula of physics, chances are that the answer would be 'E = mc2'. Nevertheless, the formula 'E=hV' which was written in the same year 1905 by the same Albert Einstein, and which started quantum theory, concerns their daily life considerably more. In fact, of the three watershed years for physics toward the beginning of the 20th century - 1905: the Special Relativity of Einstein, Lorentz and Poincaré; 1915: the General Relativity of Einstein, with its extraordinary reflections on gravitation, space and time; and 1925: the full development of Quantum Mechanics - it is surely the last which has the most profound implications for the development of science and technology. There is no way around it: all physics is quantum, from elementary particles, to stellar physics and the Big Bang, not to mention semiconductors and solar cells." A graduate of the Ecole Normale Superieure, Jean-Louis Basdevant is Professor and former Chair of the Department of Physics at the Ecole Polytechnique, and Director of Research for the CNRS. Specializing in the theoretical physics of elementary particles, quantum field theory and astrophysics, Prof. Basdevant works in the Leprince-Ringuet Laboratory at the Ecole Polytechnique
Variational principles in physics by J. L Basdevant( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The heart of this book is devoted to the analytical mechanics of Lagrange and Hamilton, the basic tools of any physicist. Professor Basdevant also offers simple but rich first impressions of Einstein's General Relativity, Feynman's Quantum Mechanics, and more revealing and amazing interconnections between various fields of physics."--Jacket
Maîtriser le nucléaire : que sait-on et que peut-on faire après Fukushima? by J. L Basdevant( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in French and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Découverte inopinément peu avant 1900, la physique nucléaire a marqué les temps modernes dans des domaines souvent étrangers les uns aux autres comme la médecine (rayons X, radiothérapie), la guerre (armement nucléaire), les arts (carbone 14) ou encore l'astrophysique (observation des supernovae). Avec quelques schémas et beaucoup d'exemples, Jean-Louis Basdevant nous explique ici en termes clairs ce que sont la radioactivité, ses applications et ses dangers. Il nous livre les clés des mécanismes qui sont à l'oeuvre dans les réactions nucléaires, avant, pendant et après, ce qui le conduit à étudier la question hautement sensible de l'électronucléaire. A l'appui d'une analyse des grandes catastrophes - Three Miles Island en 1979, Tchernobyl en 1986 et Fukushima en 2011, dont il a minutieusement étudié les conséquences - il met en lumière l'avenir de cette filière technologique : différents types de réacteurs en service, différents modes de production mais aussi prolifération des armements. Comprenant en outre une synthèse sur les ressources énergétiques (et la consommation très inégale d'énergie à l'échelle mondiale), cette édition entièrement refondue nous donne les moyens de prendre position en connaissance de cause dans un débat qui, cette fois, ne restera pas une affaire de spécialistes

Fundamentals of cosmology by James Rich( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book is aimed at physics students and professional physicists who wish to understand the basics of cosmology and general relativity as well as the most recent cosmological observations and models." "It presents a self-contained introduction to general relativity that is based on the homogeneity and isotropy of the local universe. The simplicity of this space allows general relativity to be introduced in a very elementary manner while laying the foundation for the treatment of more complicated problems." "The latest observations and theories are discussed, with an emphasis on estimations of the densities of matter and vacuum energy, and on the study of primordial density fluctuations and the nature of dark matter."--Jacket
