Physics : Astrophysics and Astroparticles
Grupen, Claus Astroparticle Physics
Gives an overview of all main ideas and concepts in astroparticle physics, serving as concise introduction into the field New edition covers numerous new topics such as astrobiology, neutrino physics and extrasolar planets Now with all details to understand gravitational waves and their discovery Illustrates the interface and interaction of particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology Includes many real-world astrophysics examples This second, revised and thoroughly updated edition of the successful textbook by Claus Grupen describes the branch of astrophysics known as astroparticle physics. Using experimental methods known from cosmic ray and particle physics, astroparticle physics investigates processes of highest energies taking place in the universe. The new edition reports Springer on progress made by recent discoveries in gravitational wave astronomy and neutrino astronomy (including all details needed to understand recent discoveries in multi-messenger 2nd ed. 2020, XVII, 609 p. 2nd experiments) and also astrobiology. After a historical introduction to the basics of elementary 343 illus., 207 illus. in color. edition particles the author describes their interactions and the relevant detection techniques. The main body of the book concerns cosmic rays as well as particle processes in astrophysics and cosmology including the physics of the early universe. The book provides an orientation in the Printed book field of astroparticle physics that many beginners might be looking for. It also presents new Softcover sections exploring the interface between particle physics and cosmic radiation and illustrates the impact of particle physics discoveries to astroparticle physics. The physics is presented Printed book using little mathematics, and the results are illustrated by many diagrams and illustrative Softcover scientific cartoons which ease the reading of the book.
