    Lee Smolin offers a new theory of the universe that is at once elegant, comprehensive, and radically different from anything proposed before. Smolin posits that a process of self organization like that of biological evolution shapes the universe, as it develops and eventually reproduces through black holes, each of which may result in a new big bang... 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...

  • An Introduction to Distance Measurement in Astronomyby Richard de Grijs

    Wiley 2011; US$ 140.00

    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...

  • Il fascino oscuro Dell’inflazioneby Pietro Fre

    Springer 2010; US$ 19.95

    dalla pi remota antichit che l uomo si interroga sulla struttura dell Universo e sulle leggi che lo governano.
