Relativistic Quark Physics
by Johann Rafelski
Publisher: arXiv.org 1998
Number of pages: 50
We present a brief survey of the development of nuclear physics towards relativistic quark physics. This is followed by a thorough discussion of the quest for the observation of the dissolution of nuclear matter into the deconfined quark matter (QGP) in relativistic nuclear collisions. Use of strange particle signatures in search for QGP is emphasized.

The focus is on the weak decay modes of hypernuclei, with special attention to Lambda-hypernuclei. The subject involves many fields of modern physics, from nuclear structure to the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions.

Marie Curie opened up the science of radioactivity. She is best known as the discoverer of polonium and radium and as the first person to win two Nobel prizes. Her radium was a key to a change in our understanding of matter and energy.

Gregory S. Nusinovich explains the fundamental physical principles upon which gyrotrons and related devices operate. He explains not only the theory, linear and nonlinear, but also the practical challenges that users of such devices face.
