By Daniel de Roulet

Mars 1942. Tetsuo Tsutsui, pilote de l’armée japonaise engagée pour sa Majesté l’Empereur dans l. a. guerre contre les Etats-Unis, écrit à sa fiancée. Il ne l’a jamais vue. Grande interprète de Mozart, cette dernière start une carrière de concertiste au conservatoire de Berkeley – chez l’ennemi. Indifférente, elle ne veut pas de ce guerrier comme mari, et espère échapper à son type. A Berkeley, elle a rencontré Wolfgang. Brillant physicien, il travaille aux côtés d’Oppenheimer et va être un acteur very important des nombreux épisodes de los angeles building de los angeles première bombe atomique. Cette nouvelle arme qui, curieusement, devrait mettre fin à toutes les guerres.

De Noël 1938 dans les neiges de Stockholm à 1969 dans l’automne de Zurich, du Los Alamos d’Oppenheimer au Tokyo des Jeux olympiques, le destin croisé des fous de l’atome et de ceux que l’atome rend fous.

Daniel de Roulet vit en Suisse. Il est l'auteur de plusieurs romans (La Simulation humaine) retraçant l'épopée atomique autour du destin de deux familles, l'une en Europe, l'autre au Japon. Il a lui-même travaillé comme ingénieur dans une centrale nucléaire.

Download Standard Model Measurements with the ATLAS Detector: Monte by Jana Nováková PDF

By Jana Nováková

This thesis bargains with major tactics played with the ATLAS detector on the huge Hadron Collider (LHC). The noise description within the hadronic calorimeter TileCal represents a really necessary technical task. the second one half offers a fruitful physics research - the go part dimension of the method p+p → Z0 → τ + τ.

The Monte Carlo simulations of the TileCal are defined within the first a part of the thesis, together with a close therapy of the digital noise and a number of interactions (so-called pile-up). a correct description of either is essential for the reconstruction of e.g. jets or hadronic tau-jets.

The moment half studies a customary version dimension  of the Z0 → τ + τ procedure with the emphasis at the ultimate country with an electron and a hadronically decaying tau-lepton. The Z0 → τ + τ channel kinds the dominant historical past within the look for Higgs bosons decaying into tau lepton pairs, and hence the nice figuring out accomplished the following can facilitate extra delicate Higgs detection.

Download Spinors in Physics (Graduate Texts in Contemporary Physics) by Jean Hladik,J. M. Cole PDF

By Jean Hladik,J. M. Cole

Invented by way of Dirac in growing his relativistic quantum thought of the electron, spinors are very important in quantum conception, relativity, nuclear physics, atomic and molecular physics, and condensed topic physics. primarily, they're the mathematical entities that correspond to electrons within the related means that standard wave features correspond to classical debris. as a result of their kinfolk to the rotation workforce SO(n) and the unitary team SU(n), this dialogue may be of curiosity to utilized mathematicians in addition to physicists.

Download Gas Discharge and Gas Insulation (Energy and Environment by Dengming Xiao PDF

By Dengming Xiao

This e-book provides a entire evaluation of analysis on environmentally pleasant insulating gases, according to the pressing demands constructing choices to SF6 as a result of the expanding information of the probability it poses as a greenhouse gasoline. It covers fuel dielectrics, SF6 and its combinations, and power substitute gases, offering basic details on gasoline discharge and fuel insulation and particularly targeting the improvement of recent environmentally pleasant insulating gases during the last decade. The booklet starts through describing the insulating and arcing features of SF6, via an creation to the gasoline dielectrics functionality of SF6 gasoline combinations with buffer gases. the newest findings on new environmentally pleasant insulating gases are defined intimately, and recommendations for sensible software also are supplied. Graduate scholars and academics keen on high-voltage and insulation engineering can use the booklet as instructing fabric. Researchers operating in plasma technological know-how, laser motion and comparable utilized physics fields may also enjoy the book’s analytical technique and particular info; engineers from the fields of electrical energy operation platforms and electric production will locate it a useful reference paintings for fixing sensible problems.

Download Relativistic Density Functional for Nuclear Structure:: 10 by Jie Meng PDF

By Jie Meng

This booklet goals to supply a close creation to the cutting-edge covariant density sensible conception, which follows the Lorentz invariance from the very starting and is ready to describe nuclear many-body quantum platforms microscopically and self-consistently. Covariant density sensible thought used to be brought in nuclear physics within the Nineteen Seventies and has for the reason that been constructed and used to explain the range of nuclear houses and phenomena with nice success.

In order to supply a sophisticated and up-to-date textbook of covariant density practical conception for graduate scholars and nuclear physics researchers, this e-book summarizes the large volume of fabric that has amassed within the box of covariant density practical thought over the past few many years in addition to the most recent advancements during this region. in addition, the publication comprises sufficient information for readers to stick to the formalism and theoretical effects, and offers exhaustive references to discover the learn literature.

Download Beyond the Nanoworld: Quarks, Leptons, and Gauge Bosons by H. G. Dosch PDF

By H. G. Dosch

past the area of atoms, at scales smaller than the smallest nuclei, a brand new international comes into view, populated by means of an array of colourful common debris: unusual and charmed quarks, muons and neutrinos, gluons and photons, and so forth, all interacting in superbly tricky styles.

Beyond the Nanoworld tells the tale of the way this new realm was once stumbled on. From the 1st discoveries of subatomic constitution to the present-day hunt for the Higgs particle, the reader is invited to keep on with the dual branches of experimental and theoretical examine as they wind in the course of the 20th century, culminating within the such a lot profitable actual thought of all time: the traditional version of particle physics.

Download Searches for CP Violation in Charmed Meson Decays: A Study by Hamish Gordon PDF

By Hamish Gordon

Our present realizing of the basic development blocks of the Universe, summarised by way of the traditional version of particle physics, is incomplete. for instance, it fails to provide an explanation for why we don't see equivalent, or nearly equivalent, numbers of debris and their antiparticle companions. to give an explanation for this asymmetry calls for, between different results, a mechanism often called charge-parity (CP) violation that reasons transformations among the charges at which debris and antiparticles decay. CP violation is visible in structures containing backside and unusual quarks, yet no longer in people with up, attraction or best quarks. This thesis describes searches for particle-antiparticle asymmetries within the decay premiums of charmed mesons. No facts of CP violation is located. With present sensitivities, an asymmetry big enough to monitor most likely couldn't be defined by way of the normal version. in its place a proof may possibly come from new physics, for instance contributions from supersymmetric or different undiscovered heavy debris. within the thesis, the improvement of latest suggestions to go looking for those asymmetries is defined. they're utilized to information from the LHCb test at CERN to make unique measurements of asymmetries within the D^+->K^-K^+pi^+ decay channel. this is often the main promising charged D decay for CP violation searches.
