AdS/CFT Duality User Guide (Lecture Notes in Physics) by Makoto Natsuume

By Makoto Natsuume

This booklet describes purposes of the AdS/CFT duality to the "real world." The AdS/CFT duality is an idea that originated from string idea and is a robust device for studying strongly-coupled gauge theories utilizing classical gravitational theories. lately, it's been proven that one prediction of AdS/CFT is certainly as regards to the experimental results of the genuine quark–gluon plasma. considering the fact that then, the AdS/CFT duality has been utilized to varied fields of physics; examples are QCD, nuclear physics, condensed-matter physics, and nonequilibrium physics.
The objective of this publication is to supply heritage fabrics akin to string thought, black holes, nuclear physics, condensed-matter physics, and nonequilibrium physics in addition to key purposes of the AdS/CFT duality in one quantity. The emphasis through the ebook is on a pedagogical and intuitive procedure concentrating on the underlying actual innovations. additionally it is step by step computations for very important effects, that are invaluable for beginners.
This ebook can be a important reference paintings for graduate scholars and researchers in particle physics, common relativity, nuclear physics, nonequilibrium physics, and condensed-matter physics.

Stellar Structure and Evolution (Astronomy and Astrophysics Library)

This long-awaited moment variation of the classical textbook on Stellar constitution and Evolution by way of Kippenhahn and Weigert is a completely revised model of the unique textual content. taking into consideration sleek observational constraints in addition to extra actual results equivalent to mass loss and diffusion, Achim Weiss and Rudolf Kippenhahn have succeeded in bringing the publication as much as the cutting-edge with admire to either the presentation of stellar physics and the presentation and interpretation of present subtle stellar types.

Quantum Foundations and Open Quantum Systems:Lecture Notes of the Advanced School

The complicated college on Quantum Foundations and Open Quantum structures was once an excellent mix of lectures. those contain lectures in normal physics and investigations at the foundations of quantum physics. at the one hand it integrated lectures on quantum info, quantum open platforms, quantum delivery and quantum sturdy nation.

Physics of Massive Neutrinos

Neutrinos play a decisive half in nuclear and straightforward particle physics, in addition to in astrophysics and cosmology. a few of their most simple homes, akin to their mass and cost conjugation symmetry, are principally unknown. This booklet makes a speciality of what we all know and will wish to grasp in regards to the mass of the neutrino and its particle-antiparticle symmetry.

CMS Pixel Detector Upgrade and Top Quark Pole Mass Determination (Springer Theses)

This thesis addresses varied subject matters, either important for enforcing sleek high-energy physics experiments: detector improvement and knowledge research. offering a concise creation to either the traditional version of particle physics and the fundamental ideas of semiconductor monitoring detectors, it offers the 1st size of the head quark pole mass from the differential cross-section of tt+J occasions within the dileptonic tt decay channel.
