From heavy nuclei to black holes Print E-mail

Various topics related to electron-positron pairs in physics and astrophysics have been the subject of a Physics Report paper "Electron-positron pairs in physics and astrophysics: from heavy nuclei to black holes", Volume 487, Numbers 1-4, pages 1-140 (2010), containing more than 500 references, and coauthored by Ruffini, Vereshchagin and Xue. There all the different aspects of the field have been reviewed.

Table of contents:
1. Introduction
2. The fundamental contributions to the electron–positron pair creation and annihilation and the concept of critical electric field
3. Nonlinear electrodynamics and rate of pair creation
4. Pair production and annihilation in QED
5. Semi-classical description of pair production in a general electric field
6. Phenomenology of electron–positron pair creation and annihilation
7. The extraction of blackholic energy from a black hole by vacuum polarization processes
8. Plasma oscillations in electric fields
9. Thermalization of the mildly relativistic pair plasma
10. Concluding remarks

Authors: Remo Ruffini, Gregory Vereshchagin, She-Sheng Xue
