By Isaak M. Khalatnikov
The e-book is an improved autobiography of the recognized theoretical physicist Isaak Khalatnikov. He labored including L.D. Landau on the Institute for actual difficulties lead by means of P.L. Kapitza. he's the co-author of L.D. Landau in a couple of vital works. They labored jointly within the body of the so-called Nuclear Bomb venture. After the dying of L.D. Landau, I.M. Khalatnikov initiated the institution of the Institute for Theoretical Physics, named in honour of L.D. Landau, in the USSR Academy of Sciences. He headed this institute from the start as its Director. The institute inherited just about all traditions of the Landau clinical university and performed a sought after position within the improvement of theoretical physics. So, it is a tale approximately how the institute was once created, the way it labored, and concerning the lifetime of the physicists within the "golden age" of the Soviet technological know-how. A separate bankruptcy is dedicated to today´s lifetime of the institute and the younger iteration of physicists operating now in science.
It is an traditionally fascinating booklet at the improvement of Soviet and Russian technological know-how and provides the history of the Soviet nuclear bomb application within the chilly struggle age. In warfare occasions, Khalatnikov was once a primary of the army employees of nuclear study. He writes concerning the inner stipulations of Soviet society, the best way of working of the Soviet specialists and methods for scientists to have interaction with them. It supplies many fascinating insights into the improvement of superconductivity and superfluidity. The ebook is written by means of the main skilled and top proficient individual one of the few residing Russian scientists within the setting of Landau. Many tales of the booklet have been by no means released ahead of and thought of as "top secret".

The physics of neutrinos--uncharged trouble-free debris which are key to supporting us larger comprehend the character of our universe--is the most intriguing frontiers of contemporary technological know-how. This ebook presents a entire assessment of neutrino physics this day and explores promising new avenues of inquiry which could bring about destiny breakthroughs.
The Physics of Neutrinos starts with a concise background of the sphere and an academic at the primary houses of neutrinos, and is going directly to speak about how the 3 neutrino kinds interchange identities as they propagate from their assets to detectors. The publication exhibits how reviews of neutrinos produced through such phenomena as cosmic rays within the surroundings and nuclear reactions within the sun inside supply impressive proof that neutrinos have mass, and it strains our fabulous growth in decoding the baffling experimental findings concerning neutrinos. the invention of neutrino mass deals the 1st indication of a brand new form of physics that is going past the normal version of hassle-free debris, and this e-book considers the unanticipated styles within the plenty and mixings of neutrinos within the framework of proposed new theoretical models.
The Physics of Neutrinos maps out the bold destiny amenities and experiments that would develop our wisdom of neutrinos, and explains why the way in which ahead in fixing the exceptional questions in neutrino technology would require the collective efforts of particle physics, nuclear physics, astrophysics, and cosmology.

Up-to-Date insurance of strong and actual Frequency Standards
The Quantum Physics of Atomic Frequency criteria: fresh Developments covers advances in atomic frequency criteria (atomic clocks) from the final a number of many years. It explains using numerous options, equivalent to laser optical pumping, coherent inhabitants trapping, laser cooling, and electromagnetic and optical trapping, within the implementation of classical microwave and optical atomic frequency standards.
The ebook first discusses advancements to standard atomic frequency criteria, highlighting the most boundaries of these frequency criteria and the actual foundation of the restrictions. It then describes how advances within the thought and functions of atomic physics have opened new avenues in frequency criteria. The authors cross directly to discover the learn and improvement of recent microwave and optical frequency criteria prior to providing the implications in frequency balance and accuracy accomplished with those new frequency criteria. in addition they illustrate the appliance of atomic clocks in metrology, telecommunications, navigation, and different components and provides a few perception into destiny work.
Building at the good fortune of the former volumes, this updated, in-depth publication examines the immense advancements to atomic clocks that experience happened within the final 25 years. the enhanced balance and accuracy allow the verification of actual innovations utilized in basic theories, equivalent to relativity, in addition to the steadiness of basic constants intrinsic to these theories.
