Adventures in Theoretical Physics: Selected Papers with by Stephen L. Adler

By Stephen L. Adler

"During the interval 1964-1972, Stephen L. Adler wrote seminal papers on excessive power neutrino strategies, present algebras, tender pion theorems, sum principles, and perturbation idea anomalies that helped lay the principles for our present general version of easy particle physics. those papers are reprinted right here including exact old commentaries describing how they advanced, their relation to different paintings within the box, and their connection to contemporary literature. Later vital paintings by means of Dr. Adler on a variety of themes in basic idea, phenomenology, and numerical tools, and their similar historic historical past, is additionally lined within the commentaries and reprints. This e-book could be a precious source for graduate scholars and researchers within the fields within which Dr. Adler has labored, and for historians of technological know-how learning physics within the ultimate 3rd of the 20th century, a interval during which an everlasting synthesis used to be accomplished.

Nuclear and Particle Physics

During this direction I shall speak about nuclear and particle physics on a just a little phenomenological point. The mathematical sophistication might be particularly restricted, with an emphasis at the physics and on symmetry features.

The Interacting Boson-Fermion Model

This e-book describes the mathematical framework on which the interacting boson-fermion version is equipped and offers functions to numerous occasions encountered in nuclei. It addresses either the analytical and the numerical features of the matter. The analytical element calls for the advent of relatively complicated workforce theoretic tools, together with using graded (or tremendous) Lie algebras.

Cosmic Gamma-Ray Sources

Gamma-ray astronomy has gone through a massive growth within the final 15 years. The luck of satellite tv for pc experiments like NASA's CompĀ­ ton Gamma-Ray Observatory and ESA's imperative project, in addition to of ground-based tools have open new perspectives into the high-energy Universe. varied periods of cosmic gamma-ray resources were now detected at diverse energies, as well as younger radio pulsars and gamma-ray bursts, the classical ones.
