Describing the instrumentation for experiments in high energy physics and astroparticle physics, this edition describes track detectors, calorimeters, particle identification, neutrino detectors, momentum measurement, electronics, and data analysis. AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally. Review Review of the hardback: The author himself admits that his book can be just a snapshot, but if this is the case then Professor Grupen has chosen a very fine grained emulsion for his work. Included are a mathematical appendix and dehectors appendix on the results from statistical physics necessary to understand the thermodynamics of the early universe. Written in a very clear and readable fashion it is accessible to a broad audience.

Grupen presents an introduction and overview detecctors the main ideas and concepts of this rapidly growing field of research. The scope of the detection techniques c. It is a pleasure to commend this book. Emmanuel Kasker insisted that, despite its noble nucleus, chess was still a game. In this spirit, Claus Grupen provides us with the perfect balance of profundity and playfulness. In introducing and explaining the working principle of particle detectors, Kleinknecht does a slightly better job, while for update information of detectors Grupen does a slightly better job.

Furthermore, its broad coverage, backed by a very extensive list of references, should satisfy the needs of more experienced researchers. Modern detectors in particle physics combine several of the above elements in layers much like an onion. Best of all, there are worthwhile problems at the end of each chapter, complete with full solutions at the end of the book. A good selection of simple exercises with solutions increases its pedagogical value and makes it suitable as a textbook for an undergraduate course.

Eclectic and subjective as it may be, you can be sure it holds something for all us sinners. English Choose a language for shopping. Customers who viewed this item also viewed. Detectors cover the measurement of energies from the very low to the highest of energies observed in cosmic rays. Der zweite Teil stellt die verschiedenen Arten von Schachproblemen mit vielen Beispielen dar. Read more Read less. Not only can one be enlightened and amused by dipping in at random, but by using cgrupen excellent index to choose a quote for any need.

Both the pedagogical nature and the emphasis on the experimental basis of models are signalled by a chapter dedicated to particle and radiation detectors and, especially, by the many instructive figures and diagrams that illustrate data and their theoretical interpretations. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. The recent findings on the matter and energy content of the universe have transformed the previously speculative field of cosmology into a precision science where the parameters of the universe are now known at the percent level.

ISBN more information on the Japanese translation is available at www. Professional chess players dive deep into the theory of openings, endgames, and other theoretical aspects, but despite its noble nucleus, chess is still a game.

The author is well known for writing concise textbooks on a variety of subjects. The following types of particle detector are widely used for radiation protection, and are commercially produced in large quantities for general use within the nuclear, medical and environmental fields. Detectors can measure the particle energy and other attributes such as momentum, spin, charge, particle type, in addition to merely registering the presence of the particle.

From reviews d. Introduction to Partilce Particles. I am not a great chess enthusiast, and I rarely study books on chess games, and even less frequently I look at chess problems.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. The style and presentation of the material make the book accessible to a broad audience with a basic knowledge of mathematics and physics. Please try again later. TOP Related Posts.
