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.

This new book is a thorough but short review of the history and present status of ideas in cosmology.

This highly engaging... more...

Si ripercorre la storia della cosmologia moderna, dal XVIII secolo fino alle più recenti scoperte (l'opera è aggiornata fino alla fine 2010). La cosmologia fa uso di concetti complessi, che vengono spesso fraintesi, o che non vengono compresi del tutto, da chi non è specialista del campo. Lo scopo del volume è di trattare esaustivamente tali concetti,... more...

Our fascination with numbers begins when we are children and continues throughout our lives. We start counting our fingers and toes and end up balancing checkbooks and calculating risk. So powerful is the appeal of numbers that many people ascribe to them a mystical significance. Other numbers go beyond the supernatural, working to explain our universe... more...

Do a little armchair time-travel, rub elbows with a four-dimensional intelligent life form, or stretch your mind to the furthest corner of an uncharted universe. With this astonishing guidebook, Surfing Through Hyperspace, you need not be a mathematician or an astrophysicist to explore the all-but-unfathomable concepts of hyperspace and higher-dimensional... more...
