Exploring fundamental particles by L Wolfenstein( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The search for the elementary constituents of the physical universe and the interactions between them has transformed over time and continues to evolve today, as we seek answers to questions about the existence of stars, galaxies, and humankind. Integrating both theoretical and experimental work, Exploring Fundamental Particles traces the development of this fascinating field, from the discoveries of Newton, Fermi, and Feynman to the detection of CP violation and neutrinos to the quest to observe the Higgs boson and beyond
CP violation by L Wolfenstein( Book )

14 editions published between 1989 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The articles collected in this volume are mainly concerned with the phenomenological description of the 1964 discovery on K° decay that CP invariance was violated in nature. The variety of models developed to explain this CP violation are described together with reprints of more recent definitive experiments, and CP violation in the B° system and the electric dipole moment of the neutron is also covered
Application of radial-equilibrium condition to axial-flow compressor and turbine design by Chung-Hua Wu( Book )

5 editions published between 1949 and 1950 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Basic general equations governing the three-dimensional motion of gas through a turbomachine are given in terms of velocity components, total enthalpy, and entropy. These equations are used to determine the radial motion of gas through an axial-flow turbomachine and the corresponding effect on the radial variations of the gas state between successive blade rows in the case of steady axially symmetrical flow. The maximum compatible number of the radial variations of the gas properties between successive blade rows that a designer is free to specify and the possible types obtained by different ways of using up these degrees of freedom are discussed
Aspen Center for Physics oral history interviews by Aspen Center for Physics( )

in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Aspen Center for Physics conducted a series of interviews with founders of the Center, as well as with notable physicists, starting in 1999 and continuing through 2008. Three of these DVDs contain video interviews documenting the history of the Aspen Center for Physics: "The Founding" (compiled for the 40th anniversary of the Center in 2002, then edited again in 2004), and "Pillars of the Aspen Center for Physics" and "Building Bethe Hall," both of which were made for the Center's Bethe Symposium in 2006. The fourth DVD, "Interview Archive Demo," is a sample for a future plan to edit and prepare all the interviews in this collection for archiving. This sample demo disc contains the interviews with Murray Gell-Mann, Stirling Colgate and Lincoln Wolfenstein. [NOTE: Neither "Pillars" or "Bethe Hall" is complete; these projects may be continued in 2009.]
Neutrinos in particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology by L Wolfenstein( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Lincoln Wolfenstein, Dept. of Physics, Carnegie Mellon University. There is now very strong evidence that neutrinos have mass and oscillate from one type of neutrino to another. A large number of experiments are now in progress or planned using solar, atmospheric or accelerator neutrinos in order to determine neutrino masses and mixings. Neutrinos come directly to earth from the center of the sun as a result of the nuclear reactions that are the source of solar energy. A supernova explosion emits more energy in neutrinos in 10 seconds than a star like the sun emits in light in 10 billion years. Neutrinos left over from the big bang are everywhere throughout the universe and may constitute a significant part of the dark matter

Theory of nuclear reactions involving polarized deuterons( Book )

1 edition published in 1952 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Methods of describing the polarization of particles of spin 1, such as the deuteron, are considered. The restrictions which the usual invariance requirements place upon the spin dependence of transition amplitudes are determined; no theory of nuclear interactions is presupposed. The polarization of the deuterons produced in the p + p yields pi(+) + d reaction is studied. Detailed assumptions concerning this reaction are not made, but limitations are put on the orbital angular momenta which should be valid if the energy is not too high. Elastic d-p scattering is suggested as a means of detection of this polarization, and the possibility of its use is explored

Cooling of Gas Turbines. 2. Effectiveness of Rim Cooling of Blades( Book )

1 edition published in 1945 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An analysis of rim cooling, which cools the blade by condition alone, was conducted. Gas temperatures ranged from 1300 degrees to 1900 degrees F and rim temperatures from 0 degrees to 1000 degrees F below gas temperatures. Results show that gas temperature increases up to 200 degrees F are permissible provided that the blades are cooled by 400 degrees to 500 degrees F below the gas temperature. Relatively small amounts of blade cooling, at constant gas temperature, give large increases in blade life. Dependence of rim cooling on heat-transfer coefficient, blade dimensions, and thermal conductivity is determined by a single parameter

Report of the Solar and Atmospheric Neutrino Working Group( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The highest priority of the Solar and Atmospheric Neutrino Experiment Working Group is the development of a real-time, precision experiment that measures the pp solar neutrino flux. A measurement of the pp solar neutrino flux, in comparison with the existing precision measurements of the high energy {sup 8}B neutrino flux, will demonstrate the transition between vacuum and matter-dominated oscillations, thereby quantitatively testing a fundamental prediction of the standard scenario of neutrino flavor transformation. The initial solar neutrino beam is pure {nu}{sub e}, which also permits sensitive tests for sterile neutrinos. The pp experiment will also permit a significantly improved determination of {theta}{sub 12} and, together with other solar neutrino measurements, either a measurement of {theta}{sub 13} or a constraint a factor of two lower than existing bounds. In combination with the essential pre-requisite experiments that will measure the {sup 7}Be solar neutrino flux with a precision of 5%, a measurement of the pp solar neutrino flux will constitute a sensitive test for non-standard energy generation mechanisms within the Sun. The Standard Solar Model predicts that the pp and {sup 7}Be neutrinos together constitute more than 98% of the solar neutrino flux. The comparison of the solar luminosity measured via neutrinos to that measured via photons will test for any unknown energy generation mechanisms within the nearest star. A precise measurement of the pp neutrino flux (predicted to be 92% of the total flux) will also test stringently the theory of stellar evolution since the Standard Solar Model predicts the pp flux with a theoretical uncertainty of 1%. We also find that an atmospheric neutrino experiment capable of resolving the mass hierarchy is a high priority. Atmospheric neutrino experiments may be the only alternative to very long baseline accelerator experiments as a way of resolving this fundamental question. Such an experiment could be a very large scale water Cerenkov detector, or a magnetized detector with flavor and antiflavor sensitivity. Additional priorities are nuclear physics measurements which will reduce the uncertainties in the predictions of the Standard Solar Model, and similar supporting measurements for atmospheric neutrinos (cosmic ray fluxes, magnetic fields, etc.). We note as well that the detectors for both solar and atmospheric neutrino measurements can serve as multipurpose detectors, with capabilities of discovering dark matter, relic supernova neutrinos, proton decay, or as targets for long baseline accelerator neutrino experiments
