The shadows of creation : dark matter and the structure of the universe by Michael Riordan( Book )

19 editions published between 1990 and 1993 in English and German and held by 926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than 90 percent of the Universe is unseen, unknown. Ordinary telescopes cannot detect it - nor can radio antennas. Yet there is convincing evidence that it exists - as something called dark matter. At the same time, recent discoveries about the structure of the Universe are challenging accepted views about its very origins. Michael Riordan and David Schramm explore a scientific mystery: What is this dark matter? What does it have to-do with the structure of the universe - the uncountable galaxies and clusters of galaxies that constitute the firmament? What does it tell us about the birth of our universe? Riordan and Schramm explore these questions, as they describe efforts underway at observatories, laboratories and particle colliders to determine the nature of dark matter. The Shadows of Creation is an account of the complicated puzzles that challenge today's physicists and cosmologists

The big bang and other explosions in nuclear and particle astrophysics by David N Schramm( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of important papers by one the world's leading astrophysicists provides a sweeping survey of the incisive and exciting applications of nuclear and particle physics to a wide range of problems in astrophysics and cosmology. The prime focus of the book is on Big Bang cosmology and the role of primordial nucleosynthesis in establishing the modern consensus on the Big Bang. This leads into the connection of cosmology to particle physics and the constraints put on various elementary particles by astrophysical arguments. Big Bang Nucleosynthesis has also led to the argument for nonbaryonic dark matter and is thus related to the major problem in physical cosmology today, namely, structure formation. The nuclear-particle interface with astrophysics also extends to the other topics of major interest such as the age of the universe, cosmic rays, supernovae, and solar neutrinos, each of which will be discussed in some detail. Each section contains historical papers, current papers, and frequently a popular article on the subject which provides an overview of the topic. This volume is testimony to the success of the integration of nuclear and particle physics with astrophysics and cosmology, and to the ingenuity of the work in this area which has earned the author numerous prestigious awards. The book, which is accessible to beginning graduate students, should be of particular interest to researchers and students in astronomy, astrophysics, cosmology and gravitation, and also in high energy and nuclear physics
Gauge theory and the early universe by Piero Galeotti( Book )

13 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

P. de Bernardis, S. Masi, G. Moreno Dipartimento di Fisica, Universita' "La Sapienza" 00184 Roma Italy ABSTRACT. Anisotropy measurement techniques and results are reviewed, with special attention given to experimental problems. The cosmological relevance of the dipole anisotropy, the only anisotropy truly detected in the Cosmic Background Radiation, is discussed. 1. INTRODUCTION Anisotropy of the Cosmic Background Radiation at 2.7 K (CBR hereafter) is a cosmological topic with a wide range of applications. In order to define anisotropy let us consider fig. 1 a, where the celestial sphere is shown with two beams A and B, with beamwidth 0 and angular separation e. We define the anisotropy of CBR at angular scale e in terms of the difference i'2,1 between the CBR flux I(ex, u) measured in the two beams. At small angular scales (el° a deterministic approach is preferred, and the CBR flux I(ex, S) is expressed as a sum of spherical harmonics (2) I (ex, S) = I ~ aIm Y (ex, S) lm I, m The alm coefficients give the dipole, quadrupole and higher order components of the anisotropy. 257 P.

Generation of cosmological large-scale structure by David N Schramm( Book )

11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The generation of large-scale cosmological structures has become one of the most pressing problems in modern cosmology. This structure generation has become the interface between astronomical observations and particle models of the early universe. The seeds for the generation of structure usually involve unification physics, and the matter needed to clump and form the structures seems to require particle properties that have not been seen in laboratories to date. New astronomical observations seem to be discovering larger structures with high peculiar velocities, while observation of the microwave background anisotropy made with the COBE satellite, balloons, and ground-based experiments place tight constraints on possible primordial density fluctuation scenarios. The book deals with a very active and exciting subject and the contributions are from leaders in the field. The intended readership is graduate students and researchers in cosmology, astronomy, astrophysics and particle physics
