The biggest science story of our time, Massive spans four decades, weaving together the personal narratives and international rivalries behind the search for the “God" particle, or Higgs boson. A story of grand ambition, intense competition, clashing egos, and occasionally spectacular failures, Massive is the first book that reveals the science, culture, and politics behind the biggest unanswered question in modern physics—what gives things mass? Drawing upon his unprecedented access to Peter Higgs, after whom the particle is named, award-winning science writer Ian Sample chronicles the multinational and multibillion-dollar quest to solve the mystery of mass. For scientists, to find the God particle is to finally understand the origin of mass, and until now, the story of their search has never been told.

Band 4 des Lehrbuchs zur Experimentalphysik beinhaltet den Stoff des vierten Semesters im Physikstudium. So wie bei den ersten drei Bänden auch präsentiert der Autor die Inhalte leicht verständlich, dabei möglichst quantitativ und angepasst an den Bachelor-Studiengang. Durchgerechnete Beispiele und Übungsaufgaben mit ausführlichen Lösungen helfen dabei, den Stoff zu bewältigen und regen zum Mitdenken an. Die vollständig überarbeitete Neuauflage wurde um Abschnitte u. a. zum LHC-Beschleuniger, zu extrasolaren Planeten und dunkler Materie erweitert.

Sono tutti lì, fuori dai cancelli del CERN, per farsi dire che è vero: il bosone di Higgs esiste. È il 4 luglio 2012. Sono trascorsi cinquant’anni da quando Peter Higgs abbozzava nel suo taccuino la possibilità di una nuova particella; quattro da quando è entrata in funzione la più grande e sofisticata macchina che l’uomo abbia mai concepito e costruito, un colossale anello sotterraneo di otto chilometri di diametro, il Large Hadron Collider. L’obiettivo è completare il Modello Standard, l’insieme delle leggi che governano tutte le particelle dell’universo. Per riuscirci, l’lhc deve catturare e osservare l’ultima di esse che ancora sfugge agli sforzi degli scienziati: il bosone di Higgs, la particella di Dio. In Higgs e il suo bosone, Ian Sample racconta l’epopea scientifica che ha appassionato il mondo intero. Intelligenza, tenacia, talento, scoramenti e coraggio. Big Bang, universo, velocità della luce, urti di particelle. Sperimentare. Caparbiamente. Sperimentare ancora. Cercare l’inesistente per dimostrare che esiste. Oltre dieci anni di lavoro, venti nazioni coinvolte, miliardi di dollari investiti e diecimila scienziati impegnati in tutto il mondo per rispondere a un’unica domanda: perché gli elementi dell’universo hanno assunto una massa? Perché si è passati dal turbine di particelle prive di massa e vaganti alla velocità della luce alle forme conosciute? E che parte ha il bosone in tutto questo?

The aim of this book is to explain the basic concepts and phenomena of quantum mechanics by means of visualisation. Computer-generated illustrations in color are used extensively throughout the text, helping to establish the relation between quantum mechanics—wave functions, interference, atomic structure, and so forth—and classical physics—point mechanics, statistical mechanics, and wave optics. Even more important, by studying the pictures in parallel with the text, readers develop an intuition for such notoriously abstract phenomena as: the tunnel effect excitation and decay of metastable states wave-packet motion within a well systems of distinguishable and indistinguishable particles free wave packets and scattering in 3 dimensions angular-momentum decomposition stationary bound states in various 3-dimensional potentials hybrid states Kepler motion of wave packets in the Coulomb field spin and magnetic resonance Illustrations from experiments in a variety of fields, including chemistry, and molecular, atomic, nuclear, and particle physics, underline the basic as well as the practical importance of quantum mechanics. In the present, fourth edition all computer graphics are presented in full colour. It also contains additional physics topics such as hybridisation.

Mit Max Plancks Entdeckung des nach ihm benannten Wirkungsquantums im Dezember 1900 beginnt das Zeitalter der modernen Physik. Es ist durch die Entwicklung neuer Theorien gekennzeichnet, die über die klassischen Gesetze hinausgehen: einerseits Einsteins Relativitätstheorien von 1905 und 1916, andererseits die Quantenmechanik (1925/26). Charakteristisch für die Geschichte der modernen Physik ist die enge Verzahnung experimenteller und theoretischer Entdeckungen. Ein Schwerpunkt der Darstellung ist die Kernphysik, die Aufklärung des Aufbaus des Atomkerns und seiner Bestandteile und der zwischen diesen wirkenden Kräfte. Auch die Geschichte wichtiger Anwendungen der modernen Physik vom Kernreaktor bis zum Laser wird geschildert.
