An Introduction to the Standard Model of Particle Physics by W. N. Cottingham, D. A. Greenwood

By W. N. Cottingham, D. A. Greenwood

The recent variation of this introductory graduate textbook offers a concise yet obtainable advent to the traditional version. it's been up-to-date to account for the successes of the idea of sturdy interactions, and the observations on matter-antimatter asymmetry. It has turn into transparent that neutrinos are usually not mass-less, and this ebook offers a coherent presentation of the phenomena and the speculation that describes them. It contains an account of growth within the conception of robust interactions and of advances in neutrino physics. The publication sincerely develops the theoretical innovations from the electromagnetic and vulnerable interactions of leptons and quarks to the powerful interactions of quarks. every one bankruptcy ends with difficulties, and tricks to chose difficulties are supplied on the finish of the booklet. The mathematical remedies are compatible for graduates in physics, and extra refined mathematical rules are constructed within the textual content and appendices.

SuperFuel: Thorium, The Green Energy Source for the Future

A riveting examine how an alternate resource of strength is revoluntionising nuclear energy, promising a secure and fresh destiny for thousands, and why thorium used to be sidelined on the top of the chilly battle

In this groundbreaking account of an power revolution within the making, award-winning technology author Richard Martin introduces us to thorium, a radioactive aspect and substitute nuclear gas that's some distance more secure, purifier, and extra plentiful than uranium.

At the sunrise of the Atomic Age, thorium and uranium looked to be in shut festival because the gas of the longer term. Uranium, with its skill to endure fission and convey explosive fabric for atomic guns, gained out over its extra pacific sister aspect, relegating thorium to the dustbin of technological know-how.

Now, as we grapple with the perils of nuclear strength and rogue atomic guns, and mankind confronts the threat of worldwide weather swap, thorium is re-emerging because the missed strength resource as a small staff of activists and outsiders is operating, with the aid of Silicon Valley traders, to construct a thorium-power undefined.

In the 1st booklet mainstream publication to take on those concerns, Superfuel is a narrative of rediscovery of an extended misplaced expertise that has the ability to rework the world's destiny, and the tale of the pacifists, who have been sidelined in favour of atomic weapon hawks, yet who can wean us off our fossil-fuel dependancy and dodge the danger of nuclear meltdown for ever.

Transcendence: The Disinformation Encyclopedia of Transhumanism and the Singularity

Transhumanism is a world stream that advocates using technological know-how and know-how to beat the "natural" obstacles skilled via humanity, via such advancements as:

the Singularity—the construction of computing device intelligences that exceed the capacities of our organic brains
the skill to duplicate person minds and positioned them into solid-state our bodies or digital environments
individual keep an eye on over psychological and emotional states for boosting functionalities and/or ecstasies
Some of this can be occurring now. a few it truly is nonetheless within the minds of dreamers.

In approximately 90 A-Z entries, Transcendence presents a multilayered examine the accelerating advances in synthetic intelligence, cognitive technology, genomics, details know-how, nanotechnology, neuroscience, area exploration, artificial biology, robotics, and digital worlds which are making transhumanism a truth. Entries variety from Cloning and Cyborg Feminism to clothier infants and Memory-Editing medications. additionally, the publication notes old predecessors and personalities, either in mythology and history—ranging from Timothy Leary to Michael Jackson to Ray Kurzweil. It additionally introduces the tradition round Transhumanism, overlaying the entire geeky obsessions of the Transhumanist move.

The Meaning of Science: An Introduction to the Philosophy of Science

Technological know-how has produced causes for every thing from the mechanisms of insect navigation to the formation of black holes and the workings of black markets. yet how a lot do we belief technological know-how, and will we really recognize the realm via it? How does technology paintings and the way does it fail? and the way can the paintings of scientists help—or hurt—everyday humans?

Progress in Ultrafast Intense Laser Science Volume I

This can be the 1st of a chain of books on Ultrafast extreme Laser technology, a newly rising interdisciplinary study box, spanning atomic and molecular physics, molecular technology, and optical technological know-how. Its development is being motivated by way of the hot improvement of ultrafast laser applied sciences. Highlights of this quantity comprise severe VUV laser--cluster interplay, resonance and chaos-assisted tunneling, and the consequences of the carrier-envelope part on high-order harmonic new release.
