  • Cosmic Updateby Fred Adams; Thomas Buchert; Laura Mersini-Houghton; Farzad Nekoogar

    Springer New York 2011; US$ 67.38

    Progress in precision cosmology has complicated our view of the universe, which now features anomalies such as ?dark energy? and the sheer improbability of the preconditions for the Big Bang. This book explores the subject in the context of quantum gravity. more...

  • The Mathematical Theory of Cosmic Stringsby M.R. Anderson

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 220.00

    This book is a comprehensive survey of the current state of knowledge about the dynamics and gravitational properties of cosmic strings treated in the idealized classical approximation as line singularities described by the Nambu-Goto action. The author's purpose is to provide a standard reference to all work that has been published since the mid-1970s... more...

  • Originsby Jim Baggott

    OUP Oxford 2015; US$ 23.99 US$ 20.63

    Jim Baggott sets out the scientific story of creation - 13.8 billion years from the Big Bang to human consciousness, via the origins of the space and time, mass and light, stars, the habitable earth, and life itself. From astrophysics to biology, the whole inspiring picture is here. more...

  • Fundamental Questions of Practical Cosmologyby Yurij Baryshev; Pekka Teerikorpi

    Springer Netherlands 2011; US$ 190.94

    This book examines surface rainfall processes through cloud-resolving modeling and quantitative analysis of surface rainfall budget, and summarizes modeling and analysis results over seven years. Includes a set of diagnostic precipitation equations. more...

  • Alpha Centauriby Martin Beech

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 39.30

    As our closest stellar companion and composed of two Sun-like stars and a third small dwarf star, Alpha Centauri is an ideal testing ground of astrophysical models and has played a central role in the history and development of modern astronomy?from the first guesses at stellar distances to understanding how our own star, the Sun, might have evolved.... more...

  • Behind the Scenes of the Universeby Gianfranco Bertone

    OUP Oxford 2013; US$ 33.99 US$ 29.23

    The author illustrates in non-technical terms how physicists hope to identify the nature of the mysterious form of matter that goes under the name of dark matter, and that seems to permeate the Universe. more...

  • We are the Martiansby Giovanni F Bignami

    Springer Milan 2012; US$ 28.07

    This compelling book shows how life derives from the Big Bang through the formation of matter and energy. The author explains how 40,000 tons of extraterrestrial matter raining down on Earth each year delivers the bricks of life from the Universe. more...

  • Once Before Timeby Martin Bojowald

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2010; US$ 16.00

    In 2000, Martin Bojowald, then a twenty-seven-year-old post-doc at Pennsylvania State University, used a relatively new theory called loop quantum gravity?a cunning combination of Einstein?s theory of gravity with quantum mechanics?to create a simple model of the universe. Loop quantum cosmology was born, and with it, a theory that managed to do something... more...
