The Origin of Mass is a guided tour of cosmic evolution, from tiny fractions of a second after the Big Bang to the elementary particles that we study in our accelerators today. The guiding principle of this book is a concept of symmetry which, in a profound and fascinating way,...
This introductory text presents a detailed account of the field of accelerator physics, including particle acceleration, collision and beam dynamics, and the important engineering considerations inherent in the effective construction and operation of particle accelerators. It is appropriate for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, accelerator scientists, and engineers.
A concise introduction to string theory explaining central concepts, mathematical tools and recent developments in the field of physics. Covering fundamental concepts including how strings interact with each other, this book is perfect for students with no prior knowledge as well as scholars from other disciplines.
This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.With this graduate-level primer, the principles of the standard model of particle physics receive a particular skillful, personal and enduring exposition by one of the great contributors to the field.
"What is the dark matter that fills the Universe and binds together galaxies? How was it produced? What are its interactions and particle properties? The paradigm of dark matter is one of the key developments at the interface of cosmology and elementary particle physics. It is also one of the...

A valuable and complete resource that brings together many of the branches of physics needed in high-energy-density physics. Targeted at research scientists and graduate students in physics and astrophysics, this book begins with basic concepts and develops a detailed explanation of the physics of hydrodynamics and energy transport in plasma.
This book offers an elementary introduction to hadronic properties at finite temperature and density for graduate students and researchers. Developing real-time methods of thermal field theory, this self-contained text examines the applications of these to thermal properties of hadrons, including heavy ion collisions and transport processes.
