New: Heidelberger Physiker berichten, vol. 4 and 5
Volumes 4 and 5 are the last volumes of the series “Heidelberger Physiker berichten”. While the focus of the fourth volume lies on important applications that have been derived from Physics, the fifth volume is a detailed documentation of the entire spectrum of its practice in Heidelberg. The documentation ranges from the largest dimensions of our cosmos to its fundamental elementary particles. From the greatest energies of powerful accelerators to the smallest energies of ultracold neutrons. And lastly, from the seemingly simple systems of the nucleon to the most complex systems of our environment and the human brain.

New book out: „Russischsprachige Bevölkerung in Osteuropa – von der Titularnation zur Minderheit“
The democratic transformation in the successor states of the Soviet Union had a deep impact on the social position of the Russian-speakers living there. Despite forming a big group and neither having a strong homogeneity nor acting as a political or social cohort, they are often perceived as a minority, hence partly placed in disadvantage both juridically and socioeconomically. The aim of this study by Anne Jürgens is to address this problem by comparison of the development in the Baltic States, specifically in Estonia, and in Ukraine.
