Key Features

@introbul:Key Features @bul:* Presents a comprehensive introduction into the theory of relativistic collision physics

  • Provides an explanation of theoretical methods for treating the Dirac equation for a time-dependent two-center system
  • Includes a review of the basic atomic collision processes
  • Gives explanations of experimental techniques in relativistic collision physics

Readership

The primary markets for this book include relativistic accelerator laboratories, atomic physicists, and theoretical physicists. Professional scientists benefit most from Parts II and III of the book. Part II represents a review, mainly of the theory of relativistic collisions. Part III covers the experimental methods of the field. A secondary market for this book is graduate students, who can greatly benefit from Part I which gives the tools of relativistic electron theory and of the relativistic treatment of collisions, much of which is not covered in the standard texts. Part Iis a suitable supplement for graduate courses involving relativity, relativistic collisions, and atomic collisions.
