Description - Strong Interactions of Hadrons at High Energies by Vladimir Gribov
Vladimir Gribov was one of the founding fathers of high-energy elementary particle physics. This book derives from a lecture course he delivered to graduate students in the 1970s. It thus provides today's graduate students and researchers with the opportunity to learn from the teaching of one of the twentieth century's greatest physicists. Its content is still deeply relevant to modern research, for example exploring properties of the relativistic theory of hadron interactions in a domain of peripheral collisions and large distances that quantum chromodynamics has barely approached. It covers a combination of topics not treated elsewhere, whilst remaining self-contained and thus accessible at graduate level. In guiding the reader, step-by-step, from the basics of quantum mechanics and relativistic kinematics to the most challenging problems of high-energy hadron interactions with simplifying models and physical analogies, it demonstrates general methods of addressing difficult problems in theoretical physics.

Author Biography - Vladimir Gribov
VLADIMIR NAUMOVICH GRIBOV received his PhD in theoretical physics in 1957 from the Physico-Technical Institute in Leningrad where he had worked since 1954. From 1962 to 1980 he was the head of the Theory Division of the Particle Physics Department of the institute, which in 1971 become the Leningrad Institute for Nuclear Physics. In 1980 he moved to Moscow where he became head of the particle physics section of the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics. From 1981 he regularly visited the Research Institute for Particle and Nuclear Physics in Budapest where he was a scientific adviser until his death in 1997. Vladimir Gribov was one of the leading theoretical physicists of his time, who made seminal contributions to many fields, including quantum electrodynamics, neutrino physics, non-Abelian field theory, and, in particular, the physics of hadron interactions at high energies.
