  • After The Beginningby Norman K Glendenning

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 31.00 US$ 28.21

    In a brilliant flash about fourteen billion years ago, time and matter were born in a single instant of creation. An immensely hot and dense universe began its rapid expansion everywhere, creating space where there was no space and time where there was no time. more...

  • Cosmology: A Very Short Introductionby Peter Coles

    OUP Oxford 2001; US$ 7.99

    This book is a simple, non-technical introduction to cosmology, explaining what it is and what cosmologists do. Peter Coles discusses the history of the subject, the development of the Big Bang theory, and more speculative modern issues like quantum cosmology, superstrings, and dark matter. more...

  • Nonlinear Gravitodynamicsby Remo Ruffini; Costantino Sigismondi

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 118.00 US$ 107.38

    This book gives a detailed, up-to-date account of the Lense–Thirring effect and its implications for physics and astrophysics. Starting from a profound intuition of Lense and Thirring in 1918, based on a simple solution to the linearized Einstein field equations, this has emerged in the past four decades as a phenomenon of extraordinary importance... more...

  • Physical Foundations of Cosmologyby Viatcheslav Mukhanov

    Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 97.00
