The yr 1998 marked the fiftieth anniversary of the discovery of the neutron video display, a key examine device within the box of house physics and solar-terrestrial relatives. In honor of this party a workshop entitled 'Cosmic Rays and Earth' was once geared up to check the detection of cosmic rays on the floor and within the reduce surroundings of Earth, together with the impression that this radiation has at the terrestrial atmosphere. a distinct concentration used to be the position of neutron displays within the research of this radiation, at the technology enabled by means of the original dataset of the global community of neutron displays, and on carrying on with possibilities to take advantage of those information to resolve extraordinary difficulties. This publication is the crucial fabricated from that workshop, integrating the contribu­ tions of all contributors. Following a basic precis of the workshop ready via the editors, the amount leads off with a keynote article by means of Professor John Simpson describing his invention of the neutron display screen in 1948 and the early clinical discoveries made with this instrument.

Study of Quark Gluon Plasma By Particle Correlations in Heavy Ion Collisions (Springer Theses)

This thesis covers numerous very important themes suitable to our realizing of quark-gluon plasma. It describes size of the third-order harmonic move utilizing two-particle correlations and isolation of stream and non-flow contributions to particle correlations in gold-gold collisions. The paintings additionally investigates long-range longitudinal correlations in small structures of deuteron-gold collisions.

The Anomalous Magnetic Moment of the Muon (Springer Tracts in Modern Physics)
