Download E-books BCS: 50 Years PDF

By Leon N. Cooper

The BCS concept of superconductivity built in 1957 by means of Bardeen, Cooper and Schrieffer has been remarkably profitable in explaining the homes of superconductors. moreover, ideas from BCS were included into assorted fields of physics, from nuclear physics and dense quark topic to the present general version. sensible functions contain SQUIDs, magnetic resonance imaging, superconducting electronics and the transmission of electrical energy. This useful ebook is a compilation of either a ancient account and a dialogue of the present nation of idea and test.

With contributions from many favorite scientists, it goals to introduce scholars and researchers to the origins, the effect and the present country of the BCS theory.

Download E-books The Sky is Your Laboratory: Advanced Astronomy Projects for Amateurs (Springer Praxis Books) PDF

For the skilled novice astronomer who's considering if there's something important, worthy, and everlasting that may be performed together with his or her observational talents, the answer's, “Yes, there is!” this is often THE booklet for the novice astronomer who's able to take your next step in his or her astronomical trip. until now there was no textual content that issues curious beginner astronomers to the study percentages open to them. on the 2006 assembly of the Society for Astronomical Sciences, contributors agreed that the inability of this kind of textual content was once a significant hole within the astronomical e-book industry. This booklet plugs that hole.

Download E-books Laser-Based Measurements for Time and Frequency Domain Applications: A Handbook (Series in Optics and Optoelectronics) PDF

By Pasquale Maddaloni, Marco Bellini, Paolo De Natale

Foreword by means of Nobel laureate Professor Theodor W. Hänsch of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München

Based at the authors’ experimental paintings during the last 25 years, Laser-Based Measurements for Time and Frequency area functions: A Handbook provides simple innovations, cutting-edge functions, and destiny developments in optical, atomic, and molecular physics. It offers all of the heritage details at the major types of laser resources and strategies, deals a close account of the latest effects acquired for time- and frequency-domain purposes of lasers, and develops the theoretical framework priceless for knowing the experimental purposes.

After a historic creation, the e-book describes the fundamental recommendations and mathematical instruments required for learning the physics of oscillators. It then discusses microwave and optical resonators, an important elements of operation and primary houses of lasers, and precision spectroscopy and absolute frequency metrology. It additionally makes a speciality of microwave and optical frequency criteria and explores present and strength learn directions.

Accessible to scientists, postdoc researchers, and complex undergraduate scholars, this self-contained publication supplies a wide-ranging, balanced evaluate of the areas―including frequency criteria and clocks, ultra-high-precision spectroscopy, quantum info, and environmental metrology―revolutionized by means of the new creation of optical frequency comb synthesizers (OFCSs) according to femtosecond mode-locked lasers. The booklet can be an invaluable advisor to state-of-the-art study for brands of complicated laser structures and optical devices.

Download E-books The Physics of Time Reversal PDF

The suggestion that primary equations governing the motions of actual structures are invariant less than the time reversal transformation (T) has been an immense, yet usually subliminal, aspect within the improvement of theoretical physics. It serves as a strong and great tool in studying the constitution of subject in any respect scales, from gases and condensed topic to subnuclear physics and the quantum concept of fields. the idea of invariance lower than T used to be referred to as into query, notwithstanding, via the 1964 discovery heavily comparable assumption, that of CP invariance (where C is cost conjugation and P is house inversion), is violated within the decay of impartial K mesons.

In The Physics of Time Reversal, Robert G. Sachs comprehensively treats the position of the transformation T, either as a device for reading the constitution of topic and as a box of basic examine on the subject of CP violation. For this function he reformulates the definitions of T, P, and C in an effort to stay away from subliminal assumptions of invariance. He summarizes the traditional phenomenology of CP violation within the K-meson method and addresses the query of the mysterious beginning of CP violation. utilizing basic examples in accordance with the traditional quark version, Sachs summarizes and illustrates how those phenomenological equipment should be prolonged to research of destiny experiments on heavy mesons. He notes that his reformulated method of traditional quantum box thought results in new questions about the that means of the differences within the context of modern theoretical advancements akin to non-Abelian gauge theories, and he indicates ways that those questions could lead on to new instructions of research.

Download E-books Large-Scale Oceanographic Experiments and Satellites PDF

By James C. McWilliams (auth.), Catherine Gautier, Michèle Fieux (eds.)

An complicated examine Workshop (ARW) subsidized by way of NATO and the California area Institute was once held in Corsica (France) October three to 7, 1983 to debate the position of satellite tv for pc observations within the large-scal·eoceanographic experiments, particularly these lower than dialogue (e.g., the realm Ocean movement scan, WOCE, and the Tropical Ocean and international surroundings, TOGA). This quantity relies on papers offered in the course of that assembly, summaries of the discussions of the operating teams and instructed priceless initiatives to be accompl ished in training for WOCE and TOGA. The contributors of the assembly determined that, even though the gathering of concerns mentioned within the assembly was once surely incomplete, the summaries of the discussions and instructed initiatives warranted being conveyed to the organizers and sponsors of WOCE and TOGA. even supposing no longer mentioned on the workshop, it was once well-known that an enormous position of satellites is as info assortment and site platforms. a few of the universal conclusions of the various operating teams discussions are that: 1) stories are wanted of the sensitivity of the sea reaction to blunders in floor parameters (wind rigidity, warmth flux, SST etc.) in quite a few actual types. those can be one of many foundation for making a choice on the accuracy standards in WOCE and TOGA.
