Jaume Navarro's A History of the Electron PDF

By Jaume Navarro

landmarks within the historical past of physics are the invention of the particulate nature of cathode rays (the electron) via J. J. Thomson in 1897 and the experimental demonstration by way of his son G. P. Thomson in 1927 that the electron shows the homes of a wave. jointly, the Thomsons are of the main major figures in smooth physics, either profitable Nobel prizes for his or her paintings. This e-book offers the highbrow biographies of the father-and-son physicists, laying off new mild on their mixed knowing of the character of electrons and, through extension, of the continual nature of topic. it's the first textual content to discover J. J. Thomson's early and later paintings, in addition to the function he performed in G. P. Thomson's schooling as a physicist and the way he reacted to his son's discovery of electron diffraction. This clean point of view will curiosity teachers and graduate scholars operating within the heritage of early twentieth-century physics.

Get Skurrile Quantenwelt (German Edition) PDF

Von einem jungen Ausnahmetalent verfasst: das vorliegende Buch schließt die Lücke zwischen der meist oberflächlichen, populärwissenschaftlichen Literatur und der allzu hochgestochenen Studienliteratur. Die erst 19jährige Silvia Arroyo Camejo gibt ihren Lesern - auf dem Niveau der Schulmathematik - eine Einführung in die Prinzipien der Quantenphysik und gewährt einen tiefen Einblick in die Welt des Mikrokosmos sowie in das faszinierende Gebiet der kleinsten Teilchen.

Ian Aitchison's Supersymmetry in Particle Physics: An Elementary PDF

Supersymmetry represents the end result of the hunt for basic symmetries that has ruled particle physics for fifty years. normally, the ingredients of subject (fermions) have been considered as varied from the debris (bosons) transmitting the forces among them. In supersymmetry, fermions and bosons are unified.

Mario Campanelli's Inside CERN's Large Hadron Collider PDF

The booklet goals to give an explanation for the ancient improvement of particle physics, with designated emphasis on CERN and collider physics. It describes intimately the LHC accelerator and its detectors, describing the technological know-how concerned in addition to the sociology of huge collaborations, culminating with the invention of the Higgs boson.

Download e-book for iPad: Hadrons and Their Interactions: Current and Field Algebra, by A Zichichi

Hadrons and Their Interactions: present and box Algebra, smooth Pions, Supermultiplets, and similar issues specializes in formulation, ideas, and interactions interested in the research of physics. The compilation includes the papers offered on the ""Ettore Majorana,"" held in Erice on July 1-14, 1967. Divided into 3 components with 22 chapters, the compilation focuses first on lectures on delicate pions; the tactic of phenomenological lagrangians and algebra of fields; and radiative corrections to beta decay and the constitution of hadrons.
