  • The Cosmic Cocktailby Katherine Freese

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    The ordinary atoms that make up the known universe?from our bodies and the air we breathe to the planets and stars?constitute only 5 percent of all matter and energy in the cosmos. The rest is known as dark matter and dark energy, because their precise identities are unknown. The Cosmic Cocktail is the inside story of the epic quest to solve one... more...

  • Sources and Detection of Dark Matter and Dark Energy in the Universeby David Cline

    Springer 2013; US$ 199.00

    These proceedings provide the latest results on dark matter and dark energy research. The UCLA Department of Physics and Astronomy hosted its tenth Dark Matter and Dark Energy conference in Marina del Rey and brought together all the leaders in the field.

  • Dark Matter In The Universeby John Bahcall; Tsvi Piran; Steven Weinberg

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 189.00

    If standard gravitational theory is correct, then most of the matter in the universe is in an unidentified form which does not emit enough light to have been detected by current instrumentation. This book is the second editon of the lectures given at the 4th Jerusalem Winter School for Theoretical Physics, with new material added. The lectures are... more...

  • High-Velocity Cloudsby H. van Woerden

These include a historical overview of HVC research and analyses of the structure and kinematics... more...

  • Dense Molecular Gas Around Protostars and in Galactic Nucleiby W.A. Baan; Y. Hagiwara; H.J. Langevelde

    Springer 2005; US$ 179.00

    The phenomena observed in young stellar objects (YSO), circumstellar regions and extra-galactic nuclei show some similarity in their morphology, dynamical and physical processes, though they may differ in scale and energy. The European Workshop on Astronomical Molecules 2004 gave astronomers a unique opportunity to discuss the links among the observational... more...

  • Dark Sky, Dark Matterby J.M Overduin; P.S Wesson

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 231.00

    Olbers' paradox states that given the Universe is unbounded, governed by the standard laws of physics, and populated by light sources, the night sky should be ablaze with light. Obviously this is not so. However, the paradox does not lie in nature but in our understanding of physics. A Universe with a finite age, such as follows from big-bang theory,... more...

  • The Mystery of the Tunguska Fireballby Surendra Verma

    Icon Books 2005; US$ 10.19

    On 30 June 1908 a mysterious fireball exploded in the Siberian sky and flattened 2,000 square kilometres of the remote Tunguska forest. As no crater and no material from outer space were ever found, a meteorite could not have caused the Tunguska explosion. So what did?  This 'grand dame of science mysteries' soon turns 100 but continues to seduce... more...
