The winner of UCL's annual HEP thesis prize, this paintings describes an research of the knowledge from the second one flight of the Antarctica Impulsive brief Antenna (ANITA). ANITA is a balloon-borne scan that searches for radio signs originating from ultra-high strength neutrinos and cosmic rays interacting with the Antarctic ice or air. the quest for ultrahigh strength neutrinos of astrophysical beginning is without doubt one of the remarkable experimental demanding situations of the twenty first century. The ANITA scan used to be designed to be the main delicate tool to ultra-high power neutrinos that originate from the interactions of cosmic rays with the cosmic microwave historical past. The method and result of the neutrino and cosmic ray searches are offered within the thesis.

Advent to Relativity is meant to educate physics and astronomy majors on the freshman, sophomore or upper-division degrees how one can take into consideration distinctive and common relativity in a basic, yet obtainable, means. Designed to render any reader a "master of relativity", every thing at the topic is understandable and derivable from first rules.
This thesis describes the thorough research of the infrequent B meson decay into ϕ okay* on info taken through the Belle Collaboration on the B-meson-factory KEKB over 10 years. This response is especially fascinating, since it in precept permits the statement of CP-violation results. within the typical version in spite of the fact that, no CP violation during this response is predicted.
These days experimental nuclear physics pushes its limits in the direction of hugely volatile nuclei. The theoretical description of proton-rich and neutronrich nuclei or superheavy parts has turn into a big a part of the fashionable nuclear physics. the most device to enquire such risky nuclei matters radioactive decays, from proton emission to fission techniques.
This monograph strains the improvement of our realizing of ways and the place full of life debris are speeded up within the heliosphere and the way they might achieve the Earth. designated facts units are provided which deal with those themes. the majority of the observations are from spacecraft in or close to the ecliptic aircraft.
