Rufus Neal, Cambridge University Press The main physical motivations for a theory are introduced, its experimental consequences discussed together with the current status of the key parameters and the expected future developments.

Grupen presents an introduction and overview detecctors the main ideas and concepts of this rapidly growing field of research. It covers the ‘new astronomies’ like neutrino astronomy, gamma-ray astronomy, X ray astronomy and astronomy with charged particles. The scope of the detection techniques c.vrupen particle detectors is very wide, depending on the aim of the measurement. It is a pleasure to commend this book. Emmanuel Kasker insisted that, despite its noble nucleus, chess was still a game.

I am just a coffee house chess player and play only for fun and entertainment. In this spirit, Claus Grupen provides us with the perfect balance of profundity and playfulness. In introducing and explaining the working principle of particle detectors, Kleinknecht does a slightly better job, while for update information of detectors Grupen does a slightly better job.

Furthermore, its broad coverage, backed by a very extensive list of references, should satisfy the needs of more experienced researchers. Modern detectors in particle physics combine several of the above elements in layers much like an onion. Best of all, there are worthwhile problems at the end of each chapter, complete with full solutions at the end of the book. A good selection of simple exercises with solutions increases its pedagogical value and makes it suitable as a textbook for an undergraduate course.


Describing the instrumentation for experiments in high energy physics and astroparticle physics, this edition describes track detectors, calorimeters, particle identification, neutrino detectors, momentum measurement, electronics, and data analysis. Eclectic and subjective as it may be, you can be sure it holds something for all us sinners. No doubt Claus Grupen’s collection of quotes will grace the shelves of many public and private libraries.

Not only can one be enlightened and amused by dipping in at random, but by using cgrupen excellent index to choose a quote for any need.

Both the pedagogical nature and the emphasis on the experimental basis of models are signalled by a chapter dedicated to particle and radiation detectors and, especially, by the many instructive figures and diagrams that illustrate data and their theoretical interpretations.

Grupen’s book might close the gap between expert and popular level. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. The recent findings on the matter and energy content of the universe have transformed the previously speculative field of cosmology into a precision science where the parameters of the universe are now known at the percent level. If you feel alone and if you are looking for some comfort, Grupen’s chess cartoons may help you a lot.

The author is well known for writing concise textbooks on a variety of subjects. The following types of particle detector are widely used for radiation protection, and are commercially produced in large quantities for general use within the nuclear, medical and environmental fields.

Detectors can measure the particle energy and other attributes such as momentum, spin, charge, particle type, in addition to merely registering the presence of the particle. From reviews d.grupen the first edition: But this book has fascinated me because of the plentitude of chess anecdotes, quotations and paryicle cartoons, which demonstrate that crazy chess lovers sometimes see further than the end of their nose and can make fun of themselves.

Introduction to Partilce Particles. I am not a great chess enthusiast, and I rarely study books on chess games, and even less frequently I look at chess problems. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. The style and presentation of the material make the book accessible to a broad audience with a basic knowledge of mathematics and physics.

Non-specialists who want to follow the main issues of current research in the field or to have a general overview before more advanced readings can also benefit from Grupen’s book.
