At the leading edge : the ATLAS and CMS LHC experiments by Dan Green( )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Too often descriptions of detectors focus on the what and not the why. This volume aims to elucidate how the requirements of the physics at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) define the detector environment. In turn, the detector choices are made to adopt to that environment. The goal of LHC physics is to explore the mechanism for electroweak symmetry breaking. Because of the minuscule cross-sections which need to be explored, 0.1 fb, the LHC needs to provide 100 fb-1/yr, or an instantaneous luminosity of 1034 / (cm2 sec). With a bunch crossing interval of 25 nsec, well matched to detector speeds, there will be 25 events occupying each bunch crossing. Thus the physics requires fast, finely segmented, low noise and radiation resistant detectors which provide redundant measurements of the rarely produced electrons and muons. To achieve those goals, new ground was broken in constructing the A Toroidal LHC Apparatus (ATLAS) and Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detectors in the vertex detectors, tracking systems, calorimetry, strong magnets, muon systems, front end electronics, trigger systems, and in the data acquisition methods used
One hundred physics visualizations using MATLAB by Dan Green( )

23 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,037 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides visualizations of many topics in general physics. The aim is to have an interactive MATLAB script wherein the user can vary parameters in a specific problem and then immediately see the outcome by way of dynamic "movies" of the response of the system in question. MATLAB tools are used throughout and the software scripts accompany the text in symbolic mathematics, classical mechanics, electromagnetism, waves and optics, gases and fluid flow, quantum mechanics, special and general relativity, and astrophysics and cosmology. The emphasis is on building up an intuition by running many different parametric choices chosen actively by the user and watching the subsequent behavior of the system. Physics books using MATLAB do not have the range - or the intent - of this text. They are rather steeped in technical detail. Symbolic math is used extensively and is integral to the aim of using MATLAB tools to accomplish the technical aspects of problem solving"--Page 4 of cover
Lectures in particle physics by Dan Green( )

15 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this book on particle physics is to present the theory in a simple way. The style and organization of the material is unique in that intuition is employed, not formal theory or the Monte Carlo method. This volume attempts to be more physical and less abstract than other texts without degenerating into a presentation of data without interpretation.This book is based on four courses of lectures conducted at Fermilab. It should prove very useful to advanced undergraduates and graduate students
The physics of particle detectors by Dan Green( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This text provides a comprehensive introduction to the physical principles and design of particle detectors, covering all major detector types in use today. The emphasis is placed on explaining the physical principles on which detection is based, and showing, by considering appropriate examples, how those principles are best utilized in real detectors. This approach also reveals the limitations that are intrinsic to different devices. Exercises and detailed further reading lists are included." "This book will be of interest and value to undergraduates, graduates and researchers in both particle and nuclear physics."--Jacket
High PT̳ physics at hadron colliders by Dan Green( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a comprehensive introduction to high transverse momentum reactions at hadron (proton-proton or proton-antiproton) colliders." "This book is suitable for graduate students and researchers in high-energy physics.

More Physics with MATLAB by Dan Green( Book )

14 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This text continues the exploration of the use of MATLAB tools and features in visualizing physical processes. The symbolic math packages are important in solving those problems which are amenable to closed form solution, while the numerical packages are used for the remaining problems. The results for the solutions use the MATLAB graphics packages to help visualize the properties of the solutions. User dialogues are designed to allow users to change the input parameters in order to see how the dynamics of the solutions depends on the parameters of the specific problem. In particular movies are used to display the dynamical evolution of solutions in time" -- Provided by publisher
Physics at Fermilab in the 1990's, August 15-24, 1989, Breckenridge, Colorado by Dan Green( Book )

12 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume presents the conclusions of those deliberations and the introductory theoretical talks. The purpose of the workshop was to consider and identify the interesting physics questions which could be addressed at Fermilab in the 1990's. All possible physics options for both the fixed-target and colliding-beam programs were examined. The accelerator working group maintained close contact with the other working groups studying the possible upgrade options which could lead both to an increase in luminosity and to provide new options for fixed-target external beams."

Cosmology with Matlab : with companion media pack by Dan Green( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume makes explicit use of the synergy between cosmology and high energy physics, for example, supersymmetry and dark matter, or nucleosynthesis and the baryon-to-photon ratio. In particular the exciting possible connection between the recently discovered Higgs scalar and the scalar field responsible for inflation is explored. The recent great advances in the accuracy of the basic cosmological parameters is exploited in that no free scale parameters such as h appear, rather the basic calculations are done numerically using all sources of energy density simultaneously. Scripts are provided that allow the reader to calculate exact results for the basic parameters. Throughout MATLAB tools such as symbolic math, numerical solutions, plots and "movies" of the dynamical evolution of systems are used. The GUI package is also shown as an example of the real time manipulation of parameters which is available to the reader. All the MATLAB scripts are made available to the reader to explore examples of the uses of the suite of tools which are available. Indeed, readers should be able to engage in a command line "dialogue" or go on to edit the scripts and write their own versions. --

Stars and space with MATLAB apps : with companion media pack by Dan Green( )

5 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recent advances in the understanding of star formation and evolution have been impressive and aspects of that knowledge are explored in this volume. The black hole stellar endpoints are studied and geodesic motion is explored. The emission of gravitational waves is featured due to their very recent experimental discovery. The second aspect of the text is space exploration which began 62 years ago with the Sputnik Earth satellite followed by the landing on the Moon just 50 years ago. Since then Mars has been explored remotely as well as flybys of the outer planets and probes which have escaped the solar system. The text explores many aspects of rocket travel. Finally possibilities for interstellar travel are discussed. All these topics are treated in a unified way using the Matlab App to combine text, figures, formulae and numeric input and output. In this way the reader may vary parameters and see the results in real time. That experience aids in building up an intuitive feel for the many specific problems given in this text." --
The physics of experiment instrumentation using MATLAB apps with companion media pack by Dan Green( )

4 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Some twenty years ago the author published a book entitled The Physics of Particle Detectors. Much has evolved since that time, not in the basic physics, but in the complexity, number and versatility of the detectors in common use in both experiments, beam-lines and accelerators. Those changes have been heavily influenced by the concurrent dramatic changes in the microelectronics industry. In parallel, the use of computer-aided teaching has also greatly improved. The present volume explores the physics needed to understand the full suite of front-end devices in use today. In particular the physics explanation is made concurrently with the specific device being discussed, thus making the coupling more immediate. That study is made more interactive by using newer educational tools now available such as dynamic Matlab Apps"--Publisher's website
