  • Compiles most of the important subjects of polarization physics
  • Contains theory, experimental set-ups, results and application technology
  • Gives a survey of related famous work of Soviet and Russian scientists
  • Expanded and updated translation of the earlier Russian version, particularly with regard to experimental results
This book is devoted to the polarization (spin) physics of high energy particles and contains three parts. The first part presents the theoretical prefaces of polarization in the particle physics for interpretations, predictions and bases for understanding the following two parts. The second part of the book presents the description of the essential polarization experiments including the recent ones. This part  is devoted to the innovative instrumentations, gives the parameters of the polarized beams, targets, polarized gas jets and polarimeters. The third part of the book concentrates on  the important achievements in polarization physics. The book can be used in lectures  on nuclear and particle physics and  and nuclear instruments and methods. As supplementary reading this book is useful for researchers working in particle and nuclear physics.
