Dark matter (Astronomy)

  • Dark Matter in Astro- and Particle Physicsby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 99.00

    The Fourth HEIDELBERG International Conference on Dark Matter in Astro­ and Particle Physics, DARK2002, was held in Cape Town, South Africa, in the period 4-9 February 2002. This majestic natural area was the site of the first conference of this series (hosted since 1996 in Heidelberg) to be held outside of Germany. Dark Matter has become one of the... more...

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 320.00

    This volume is the latest in a prominent biannual series of scientific meetings on the exciting research topics of dark matter and, more recently, of dark energy. It contains a state-of-the-art update on detection efforts by experimental groups around the world trying to pin down exotic new forms of matter under the names of axions, neutralinos, wimps,... more...

  • Dark Matter In The Universeby John Bahcall; Tsvi Piran; Steven Weinberg

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 189.00

    If standard gravitational theory is correct, then most of the matter in the universe is in an unidentified form which does not emit enough light to have been detected by current instrumentation. This book is the second editon of the lectures given at the 4th Jerusalem Winter School for Theoretical Physics, with new material added. The lectures are... more...

  • Matter, Anti-Matter and Dark Matterby Roberto Battiston; Bruna Bertucci

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 176.00

    This book presents the progress in cosmic ray physics following the recent results obtained by balloon, satellite and underground experiments. The following topics are reviewed: Composition and propagation of cosmic rays, trapping of charged particles in the earth's magnetic field, atmospheric neutrinos, and high energy photon measurements in... more...

  • Dark Matter in the Universeby S. Bonometto; J. Primack; A. Provenzale

    IOS Press 1997; US$ 237.00

    Physics and astrophysics came to dark matter through many different routes, finally accepting it, but often with some distaste. It has been noticed that the existence of dark matter is yet another displacement of humans from the centre of the Universe: not only do our planet and our sun have no central position in the Universe, not only are humans... more...

  • Paths to Dark Energyby Gene Byrd; Arthur D. Chernin; Pekka Teerikorpi; Mauri Valtonen

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 182.00

    This work provides the current theory and observations behind the cosmological phenomenon of dark energy.

  • 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 Cosmic Cocktailby Katherine Freese

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 19.95

    The ordinary atoms that make up the known universe?from our bodies and the air we breathe to the planets and stars?constitute only 5 percent of all matter and energy in the cosmos. The rest is known as dark matter and dark energy, because their precise identities are unknown. The Cosmic Cocktail is the inside story of the epic quest to solve one... more...
