  • Dark Sky, Dark Matterby J.M Overduin; P.S Wesson

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 243.00

    Olbers' paradox states that given the Universe is unbounded, governed by the standard laws of physics, and populated by light sources, the night sky should be ablaze with light. Obviously this is not so. However, the paradox does not lie in nature but in our understanding of physics. A Universe with a finite age, such as follows from big-bang theory,... more...

  • In Search of Dark Matterby Ken Freeman; Geoff McNamara

    Springer New York 2006; US$ 44.95

    The dark matter problem is one of the most fundamental and profoundly difficult problems in the history of science. Not knowing what makes up most of the mass in the Universe goes to the heart of our understanding of the Universe and our place in it. In Search of Dark Matter is the story of the emergence of the dark matter problem, from the initial... more...

  • The Invisible Universe: Dark Matter and Dark Energyby Eleftherios Papantonopoulos

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 129.00

    To the eyes of the average person and the trained scientist, the night sky is dark, even though the universe is populated by myriads of bright galaxies. Why this happens is a question commonly called Olbers' Paradox, and dates from at least 1823. How dark is the night sky is a question which preoccupies astrophysicists at the present. The answer... more...
