By Michael Atkins

The potent conception of quantum gravity coupled to types of particle physics is being probed by means of leading edge experiments in either excessive strength physics (searches for added dimensions) and cosmology (testing versions of inflation). This thesis derives new bounds which may be put on those versions either theoretically and experimentally. In versions of additional dimensions, the interior consistency of the theories at excessive energies are investigated through perturbative unitarity bounds. equally it really is proven that fresh versions of Higgs inflation be afflicted by a breakdown of perturbative unitarity throughout the inflationary interval. additionally, the thesis makes use of the newest LHC facts to derive the 1st ever experimental certain at the measurement of the Higgs boson's non-minimal coupling to gravity.

After Life

Lifestyles is one among our most simple strategies, and but while tested without delay it proves remarkably contradictory and elusive, encompassing either the broadest and the main particular phenomena. we will see this uncertainty approximately existence in our behavior of forthcoming it as whatever instantly clinical and mystical, within the go back of vitalisms of every kind, and within the pervasive politicization of existence.

Invariant Random Fields on Spaces with a Group Action (Probability and Its Applications)

The writer describes the present cutting-edge within the conception of invariant random fields. This thought is predicated on a number of assorted parts of arithmetic, together with chance idea, differential geometry, harmonic research, and specified features. the current quantity unifies many effects scattered through the mathematical, actual, and engineering literature, in addition to it introduces new effects from this quarter first proved via the writer.

Physik ohne Realität: Tiefsinn oder Wahnsinn? (German Edition)

Beschreiben die Begriffe der modernen Physik die „Realität“ oder sind sie nur Hilfsmittel und Rechenwerkzeuge? Wie können reale Objekte aus Atomen aufgebaut sein, wenn diese angeblich gar keine realen Eigenschaften vor deren Messung besitzen? Wie kann Schrödingers Wellenfunktion erfolgreich die Struktur und Stabilität von Atomen, Molekülen und Festkörpern beschreiben, wenn sie nur „menschliches Wissen“ oder abstrakte „Information“ darstellt?

Particle Physics at the Year of Centenary of Bruno Pontecorvo:Proceedings of the Sixteenth Lomonosov Conference on Elementary Particle Physics

Those complaints are dedicated to a wide selection of things, either in concept and scan, of particle physics akin to neutrino and astroparticle physics, checks of the normal version and past, and hadron physics. additionally lined are gravitation and cosmology, and physics from current and destiny accelerators.
