But what happens to the Universe before... more...

  • Entropic Creationby Professor Helge S Kragh; Dr Ernst Hamm; Dr Robert M Brain

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    Entropic Creation is the first English-language book to consider the cultural and religious responses to the second law of thermodynamics, from around 1860 to 1920. According to the second law of thermodynamics, as formulated by the German physicist Rudolf Clausius, the entropy of any closed system will inevitably increase in time, meaning that the... 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...

  • The Big Bang Never Happenedby Eric Lerner

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2010; US$ 19.95

    A mesmerizing challenge to orthodox cosmology with powerful implications not only for cosmology itself but also for our notions of time, God, and human nature -- with a new Preface addressing the latest developments in the field. Far-ranging and provocative, The Big Bang Never Happened is more than a critique of one of the primary theories of astronomy... more...

  • An Introduction to Distance Measurement in Astronomyby Richard de Grijs

    Wiley 2011; US$ 59.00

    Distance determination is an essential technique in astronomy, and is briefly covered in most textbooks on astrophysics and cosmology. It is rarely covered as a coherent topic in its own right. When it is discussed the approach is frequently very dry, splitting the teaching into, for example, stars, galaxies and cosmologies, and as a consequence, books... more...

  • Weaving the Universeby Paul S. Wesson

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 68.00

    This new book is a thorough but short review of the history and present status of ideas in cosmology. It is aimed at a broad audience, but will contain a few equations where needed to make the argument exact. The coverage of cosmological ideas will focus mainly on the period from the early 1900s when Einstein formulated relativity and when his colleague... more...
