The Black Book of Quantum Chromodynamics is an in-depth introduction to the particle physics of current and future experiments at particle accelerators. The book offers the reader an overview of practically all aspects of the strong interaction necessary to understand and appreciate modern particle phenomenology at the energy frontier. It assumes a working knowledge of quantum field theory at the level of introductory textbooks used for advanced undergraduate or in standard postgraduate lectures. The book expands this knowledge with an intuitive understanding of relevant physical concepts, an introduction to modern techniques, and their application to the phenomenology of the strong interaction at the highest energies. Aimed at graduate students and researchers, it also serves as a comprehensive reference for LHC experimenters and theorists. This book offers an exhaustive presentation of the technologies developed and used by practitioners in the field of fixed-order perturbation theory and an overview of results relevant for the ongoing research programme at the LHC. It includes an in-depth description of various analytic resummation techniques, which form the basis for our understanding of the QCD radiation pattern and how strong production processes manifest themselves in data, and a concise discussion of numerical resummation through parton showers, which form the basis of event generators for the simulation of LHC physics, and their matching and merging with fixed-order matrix elements. It also gives a detailed presentation of the physics behind the parton distribution functions, which are a necessary ingredient for every calculation relevant for physics at hadron colliders such as the LHC, and an introduction to non-perturbative aspects of the strong interaction, including inclusive observables such as total and elastic cross sections, and non-trivial effects such as multiple parton interactions and hadronization. The book concludes with a useful overview contextualising data from previous experiments such as the Tevatron and the Run I of the LHC which have shaped our understanding of QCD at hadron colliders.

An American version of "The Black Book" prepared by the U.S. Executive of the joint Soviet-American Jewish Black Book Committee, based mainly on the materials collected by the American chapter of this organization, as well as on materials sent by the Soviet Jewish Anti-Fascist Committee to the USA in 1944. It is structured as a history of the Holocaust, interspersed with documents and excerpts from eyewitness accounts (by perpetrators and victims), from contemporary newspapers, and from essays by Soviet Jewish writers. Dwells on Nazi antisemitism and propaganda, the Nazi anti-Jewish laws, Nazi policies against the Jews (e.g. expulsion, starvation, forced labor), Nazi mass murder of Jews, and Jewish resistance to the genocide. Pp. 469-519 contain photographs of some documents and their English translation.

2016 Edition. With insider recommendations and full-color neighborhood maps that pinpoint landmarks, museums, entertainment, pubs, clubs, and hotels, this fab city guide walks you through the best of the Royal Capital, with excursions outside London as well. * Organized by district * Color-coded, numbered entries in the text are linked to full-color area maps in each chapter. * Quick-reference subsections describe landmarks, arts and culture, dining, nightlife, shopping, and hotels * Easy-to-understand explanations of transportation, customs, currency, telephone procedures, business hours, and etiquette * Lists London's biggest seasonal events * ''Top Picks'' direct you to not-to-be-missed attractions * Spot illustrations throughout liven the text * Nine full-color maps, including overview map, area-detail maps, and transport map Best Travel Series of the Year, 2008. Hooper, Brad (author). FEATURE. First published September 15, 2008 (Booklist). We select the Little Black Travel Books as our travel guide series of the year. The main reasons for designating these guides as best of the year are their portability and user friendliness....each volume has a neat, tidy, and nicely detailed foldout map to the particular area under discussion. The chapters in each volume correspond to the geographical areas into which the authors divide the city for the tourist. Each chapter gives basics on places to see, available art, and entertainment venues, places to eat and drink, where to shop, and where to stay. You can study a range of guides before your actual trip, but this is definitely a commendable candidate for carrying with you on site. --Booklist (American Library Association)
