  • Surfing through Hyperspaceby Clifford A. Pickover

    Oxford University Press 1999; US$ 21.99 US$ 18.91

    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...

  • The Mathematical Theory of Cosmic Stringsby M.R. Anderson

    CRC Press 2015; US$ 220.00

    This book is a comprehensive survey of the current state of knowledge about the dynamics and gravitational properties of cosmic strings treated in the idealized classical approximation as line singularities described by the Nambu-Goto action. The author's purpose is to provide a standard reference to all work that has been published since the mid-1970s... more...

  • Modern Cosmologyby S Bonometto; V. Gorini; U. Moschella

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 220.00

    Cosmology is a relatively new science, but cosmological questions are as old as mankind. Turning philosophical and metaphysical problems into problems that physics can treat, and hopefully solve, has been an achievement of the twentieth century. Modern Cosmology brings together contributions from a number of outstanding scientists currently working... more...

  • Cosmology And Particle Astrophysics, Proceedings Of The 2002 International Symposium On Cospa 2002by X-G He; K-W Ng

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 141.00

    The 2002 International Symposium on Cosmology and Particle Astrophysics (CosPA2002) was held from May 31 to June 2, 2002, in Taipei, Taiwan. The topics covered during the symposium included: (1) CMB Physics: SZ Surveys, Polarizations, Large-Scale Structures, Gravitational Lensing, and Data Analysis; (2) Dark Energy and Dark Matter: Dark Matter Physics,... more...

  • Calibrating the Cosmosby Frank Levin

    Springer New York 2007; US$ 29.32

    This book explains in clear, non-mathematical language the measurements and the interpretation of the resulting data that have led to the current understanding of the origin, evolution and properties of our expanding Big Bang universe. more...

  • Inflationary Cosmology Revisitedby Julio A Gonzalo

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 73.00

    Scientific Cosmology is clearly one of the most active physics research fields at present, and likely to remain so in the near future. Shortly after the pioneering cosmological work of Einstein, Georges Lemaitre proposed a model which some years later to be known as the big-bang model. In the early fifties an alternative proposal, the so called steady-state... more...

  • Frontiers of Cosmologyby Alain Blanchard; Monique Signore

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 152.41

    The field of Cosmology is currently undergoing a revolution driven by dramatic observational progresses and by novel theoretical scenarios imported from particle physics. This book contains lectures by world experts in the various branches of this field corresponding to lectures presented during the School "Frontiers of the Universe" at the... more...

  • Modern Cosmologyby Scott Dodelson

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 94.95

    Modern Cosmology begins with an introduction to the smooth, homogeneous universe described by a Friedman-Robertson-Walker metric, including careful treatments of dark energy, big bang nucleosynthesis, recombination, and dark matter. From this starting point, the reader is introduced to perturbations about an FRW universe: their evolution with the... more...
