R. A Carrigan(
Book
)
13 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume provides timely coverage of nonaccelerator astroparticle physics. It complements two volumes prepared for earlier schools. Informative and pedagogical, it can serve as the basis for a modern course on the subject. The first section discusses the fundamentals of particle physics, with reviews of the standard model and beyond. The section on neutrinos and neutrino oscillations covers topics including neutrino oscillations, short and long baseline neutrino beams from accelerators, atmospheric and solar neutrinos, neutrinos from gravitational stellar collapses and neutrino telescopes. Another section deals with dark matter searches. Cosmic rays and astrophysics are covered with reviews of experiments in space, extreme energy cosmic rays, and gamma ray bursts. Gravitational waves and gravitational wave detectors are discussed. The final section deals with results from accelerators and future plans for accelerator facilities, computing, and new large and small detectors. Abstracts of the posters presented by participants at the school give a broad picture of worldwide activities in the field

Introductory lectures on knot theory : selected lectures presented at the Advanced School and Conference on Knot Theory and
Its Applications to Physics and Biology, ICTP, Trieste, Italy, 1129 May 2009 by Advanced School and Conference on Knot Theory and Its Applications to Physics and Biology(
Book
)
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume consists primarily of survey papers that evolved from the lectures given in the school portion of the meeting and selected papers from the conference. Knot theory is a very special topological subject: the classification of embeddings of a circle or collection of circles into threedimensional space. This is a classical topological problem and a special case of the general placement problem: Understanding the embeddings of a space X in another space Y. There have been exciting new developments in the area of knot theory and 3manifold topology in the last 25 years. From the Jones, Homflypt and Kauffman polynomials, quantum invariants of 3manifolds, through, Vassiliev invariants, topological quantum field theories, to relations with gauge theory type invariants in 4dimensional topology. More recently, Khovanov introduced link homology as a generalization of the Jones polynomial to homology of chain complexes and Ozsvath and Szabo developed HeegaardFloer homology, that lifts the Alexander polynomial. These two significantly different theories are closely related and the dependencies are the object of intensive study. These ideas mark the beginning of a new era in knot theory that includes relationships with fourdimensional problems and the creation of new forms of algebraic topology relevant to knot theory. The theory of skein modules is an older development also having its roots in Jones discovery. Another significant and related development is the theory of virtual knots originated independently by Kauffman and by Goussarov Polyak and Viro in the '90s. All these topics and their relationships are the subject of the survey papers in this book. It is a remarkable fact that knot theory, while very special in its problematic form, involves ideas and techniques that involve and inform much of mathematics and theoretical physics. The subject has significant applications and relations with biology, physics, combinatorics, algebra and the theory of computation. The summer school on which this book is based contained excellent lectures on the many aspects of applications of knot theory. This book gives an indepth survey of the state of the art of present day knot theory and its applications

"The ICTP 1998 Summer School was devoted mostly to different aspects of astroparticle physics and cosmology. The series of introductory lectures on present day status of Standard Model of the electroweak interactions and Higgs physics, aspects of QCD and supersymmetry, provided particle physics background for astrophysical applications. The rest of the lectures focused on the indepth coverage of inflation, hightemperature field theory and phase transitions, baryogenesis, dark matter and structure formation. Special emphasis was placed on neutrino astrophysics in view of the superKamiokande results on atmospheric neutrinos."Preface

Proceedings of the workshop, Intrinsic Multiscale Structure and Dynamics in Complex Electronic Oxides : the Abdus Salam International
Centre for Theoretical Physics, 14 July 2002 by Intrinsic Multiscale Structure and Dynamics in Complex Electronic Oxides(
Book
)
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There is considerable interest in the intrinsically multiscale structure and dynamics of complex electronic oxides, especially since these materials include those of technological importance, such as colossal magnetoresistance manganites and cuprate high temperature superconductors. Current microscopies, such as diffuse Xray and inelastic neutron scattering, electromagnetic and acoustic response, NMR and scanning tunneling microscope probes, have revealed static and dynamic multiscale patterns in charge positioning, lattice structure and magnetic orientation, that respond to both external stress and magnetic field. These selforganized patterns include charge and orbital ordering; stripes in strain/spin; and labyrinthlike conductance modulations. The materials exhibit nanoscale phase segregation and mesoscale inhomogeneous clustering, and their phase transitions can have a percolative character. This volume presents experimental and theoretical work on these exciting new developments in condensed matter physics and materials science

Book
)
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The nuclear power and technology sector, comprising industry, governments and academia, is a knowledge based endeavor similar to other highly technological industries. Recent trends, such as an aging workforce and declining student enrollment, with the consequent risk of losing accumulated nuclear knowledge and experience, have drawn attention to the need for better management of nuclear knowledge. These proceedings are of a workshop on Managing Nuclear Knowledge which was jointly organized by the IAEA, the Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics and the World Nuclear University. The aim was to increase the awareness of Member States with respect to the challenge of nuclear knowledge management, to share the best practices and to provide a forum for the exchange of information among participating nuclear professionals.Publisher's description

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Readership: theoretical physicists, mathematical physicists, mathematicians, working in the field of symmetries and their applications in physics; researchers and graduate students. The Workshop series 'Lie Theory and Its Applications in Physics' is designed to serve the community of theoretical physicists, mathematical physicists and mathematicians working on mathematical models for physical systems based on geometrical methods and in the field of Lie theory. The series reflects the trend towards a geometrisation of the mathematical description of physical systems and objects. A geometric approach to a system yields in general some notion of symmetry which is very helpful in understanding its structure. Geometrisation and symmetries are meant in their widest sense, i.e., classical geometry, differential geometry, groups and quantum groups, infinitedimensional (super )algebras, and their representations. Furthermore we include the necessary tools from functional analysis and number theory."Document web

C Bachas(
)
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this volume, topics such as the AdS/CFT correspondence, nonBPS states, noncommutative gauge theories and the Randall–Sundrum scenario are discussed. For the AdS/CFT correspondence, some of its generalizations, including examples of nonAdS/nonconformal backgrounds, are described. Myer's effect in this context and otherwise is also treated. Recent results in the context of nonBPS states are reviewed, in particular the use of open string field theory in understanding the related problem of tachyon condensation. Instantons and solitons in noncommutative gauge theories are described, as are various issues in the framework of the Randall–Sundrum scenario

Science dissemination using open access : a compendium of selected literature on open access(
Book
)
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Open Access means aims to remove restrictions that exist on the access to articles and knowledge to the worldwide scholarly community, in particular to those in developing countries. Scientists in these countries still have difficulty in publishing their work due to the lack of access to the network, to their institutional economic difficulties or to the lack of awareness of available Open Access solutions. The visibility, usage and impact of researchers' own findings can increase with Open Access, as does their power to find, access and use the work of others. This book aims to guide the scientific community on the requirements of Open Access, and the plethora of lowcost solutions available. A compendium of selected literature on Open Access is presented to increase the awareness of the potential of open publishing in general. The book also aims to encourage decision makers in academia and research centers to adopt institutional and regional Open Access Journals and Archives to make their own scientific results public and fully searchable on the Internet
