Featured New eBooks

The Black Book of Quantum Chromodynamics

This book by Fermilab author John Campbell, with Joey Huston and Frank Krauss, is written as an advanced primer for physics at the LHC. It provides a pedagogical guide for the calculation of QCD and Standard Model predictions, using state-of-the-art theoretical frameworks. The predictions are compared to both the legacy data from the Tevatron, and the data obtained thus far from the LHC, with intuitive connections between data and theory supplied.

Collisions and Collaboration: The Organization of Learning in the ATLAS Experiment at the LHC

This book aims to give a broad organizational and strategic understanding of the nature of Big Science by analyzing the ATLAS Collaboration. It examines how, in the face of high levels of uncertainty and risk, ambitious scientific aims can be achieved by complex organizational networks characterized by cultural diversity, informality, and trust — and where Big Science can head next.
