In this text, differential aspects of dynamical symmetry breaking (DSB) in quantum field theory are discussed in detail. A deep connection between this phenomenon in condensed matter physics and particle physics is emphasized. Applications of DSB to such realistic theories as chromo-dynamics and electroweak interactions are also considered. Problems intimately connected with DSB (anomalies, effective lagrangian approach) are also discussed.
Panic, fear, and violence grip the lives of two young children, neighbors, who are trying to grow up in and get out of suburban Los Angeles. Will they make it out alive? Find out in this short, yet captivating, tale.
The midnight sun had set, but in a crotch between two snow-peaks it had kindled a vast caldron from which rose a mist of jewels, garnet and turquoise, topaz and amethyst and opal, all swimming in a sea of molten gold. The glow of it still clung to the face of the broad Yukon, as a flush does to the soft, wrinkled cheek of a girl just roused from deep sleep. Except for a faint murkiness in the air it was still day. There was light enough for the four men playing pinochle on the upper deck, though the women of their party, gossiping in chairs grouped near at hand, had at last put aside their embroidery. The girl who sat by herself at a little distance held a magazine still open on her lap. If she were not reading, her attitude suggested it was less because of the dusk than that she had surrendered herself to the spell of the mysterious beauty which for this hour at least had transfigured the North to a land all light and atmosphere and color.
Thoroughly examining tuberculosis from historical, theoretical, and clinical perspectives, this Third Edition merges state-of-the-art research developments with principles of programmatic TB management. Each of the 50 chapters analyze current studies on TB mechanisms and treatment and will meet the needs of all who work in the field of TB control, whether in low-income, high-prevalence areas or in low-prevalence industrialized countries.
