Item description for At the Frontier of Particle Physics : Handbook of QCD (3 Volumes) by B. L. Ioffe...

This book consists of reviews covering all aspects of quantum chromodynamics as we know it today. The articles have been written by recognized experts in this field, in honor of the 75th birthday of Professor Boris Ioffe. Combining features of a handbook and a textbook, this is the most comprehensive source of information on the present status of QCD. It is intended for students as well as physicists - both theorists and experimentalists.

Each review is self-contained and pedagogically structured, providing the general formulation of the problem, telling where it stands with respect to other issues and why it is interesting and important, presenting the history of the subject, qualitative insights, and so on. The first part of the book is historical in nature. It includes, among other articles, Boris Ioffe's and Yuri Orlov's memoirs on high energy physics in the 1950's, a note by B V Geshkenbein on Ioffe's career in particle physics, and an essay on the discovery of asymptotic freedom written by David Gross.

More About B. L. Ioffe

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! B. L. Ioffe is Head of the Laboratory of Theoretical Physics at ITEP, Moscow. He discovered the origin of baryon masses in QCD, the light-cone dominance in deep inelastic scattering. He predicted that parity violation in weak interactions should be accompanied by violation of charge symmetry or time reversal invariance, and the observation of parity violating spin-momentum correlations would mean the charge symmetry violation. He has won several prizes, including the Alexander von Humboldt Award.

B. L. Ioffe was born in 1926.

Reviews - What do customers think about At the Frontier of Particle Physics : Handbook of QCD (3 Volumes)?

Ioffe compilation summarizes our understanding of strong interactions  Sep 14, 2005
This book is an invaluable resource to anyone who wishes to gain an overview of the struggle to understand the strong nuclear force. This is a struggle taking place on several fronts, and so the strategy of asking those directly involved on those different fronts to describe their work gives a refreshing---and thorough---view QCD. The article on "Crossing the Border", which discusses attempts to understand nuclear physics from effective theories based on QCD is particularly stimulating, and beautifully written into the bargain.
