## Open Skies: The National Radio Astronomy Observatory and Its Impact on US Radio Astronomy (Historical & Cultural Astronomy)

This open access book on the history of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory covers the scientific discoveries and technical innovations of late 20th century radio astronomy with particular attention to the people and institutions involved. The authors have made extensive use of the NRAO Archives,…

## Tetrad Formalism for Exact Cosmological Observables (SpringerBriefs in Physics)

This book presents a novel mathematical formalism, based on the tetrad formulation of differential geometry, for describing cosmological observables exactly and conveniently. It covers all the standard observables, i.e. distances, weak lensing, number counts and cosmic microwave background, and also includes a detailed derivation of…

## History of the Plurality of Worlds: The Myths of Extraterrestrials Through the Ages (Historical & Cultural Astronomy)

Modern research has demonstrated that many stars are surrounded by planets―some of which might contain the right conditions to harbor life. This has only reinforced a question that has been tormenting scientists, philosophers and priests since Antiquity: Are there other inhabited worlds beyond our own?…

## A Short Course in General Relativity and Cosmology (Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics)

Unlike most traditional introductory textbooks on relativity and cosmology that answer questions like “Does accelerated expansion pull our bodies apart?”, “Does the presence of dark matter affect the classical tests of general relativity?” in a qualitative manner, the present text is intended as a foundation,…

## The Wondrous Universe: Creation without Creator? (Astronomers’ Universe)

The world as it is viewed from modern physics and cosmology has many strange and unexpected features. Often these are in stark contrast with our everyday experience or our preconceptions, such as the concept of space and time as finite and changeable. Nevertheless it is…

## Analytical Techniques of Celestial Mechanics

The aim of this book is to describe contemporary analytical and semi analytical techniques for solving typical celestial-mechanics problems. The word “techniques” is used here as a term intermediate between “methods” and “recipes”. One often conceives some method of solution of a problem as a…

## The Physical Basis of The Direction of Time Ed 4

This book has been thoroughly revised to include important new results. At the same time it retains the features that make it a classic text on irreversibility, and one which clearly distinguishes the latter from those time asymmetries which may be compensated for by other…

## Hadean Earth

This book consolidates the latest research on the Hadean Eon – the first 500 million years of Earth history – which has permitted hypotheses of early Earth evolution to be tested, including geophysical models that include the possibility of plate tectonic-like behavior. These new observations…

## Reviews in Frontiers of Modern Astrophysics: From Space Debris to Cosmology

This book presents a collection of focused review papers on the advances in topics in modern astronomy, astrophysics, cosmology and planetary science. The chapters are written by expert members of an EU-funded ERASMUS+ program of strategic partnership between several European institutes. The 13 reviews comprise…

## The Moon: A Translation of Der Mond (Historical & Cultural Astronomy)

Julius Schmidt was one of the finest astronomical observers of his time, and his detailed map of the Moon surpassed anything that had come before. Today, the German astronomer and geophysicist has remained a largely neglected figure, despite being one of the most important players…

## Quantum Cosmology – The Supersymmetric Perspective – Vol. 2: Advanced Topic (Lecture Notes in Physics (804))

The two volumes that comprise Quantum Cosmology tackle the quantum description of the early universe from the perspective of supersymmetric models of elementary particle physics. This second volume is dedicated to more advanced topics.

## An Introduction to Star Formation

Guiding the reader through all the stages that lead to the formation of a star such as our Sun, this advanced textbook provides students with a complete overview of star formation. It examines the underlying physical processes that govern the evolution from a molecular cloud…

## Statistical Analysis of Spherical Data

This is the first comprehensive, yet clearly presented, account of statistical methods for analysing spherical data. The analysis of data, in the form of directions in space or of positions of points on a spherical surface, is required in many contexts in the earth sciences,…

## Bounds on the Effective Theory of Gravity in Models of Particle Physics and Cosmology (Springer Theses)

The effective theory of quantum gravity coupled to models of particle physics is being probed by cutting edge experiments in both high energy physics (searches for extra dimensions) and cosmology (testing models of inflation). This thesis derives new bounds that may be placed on these…

## Scattering from Black Holes (Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics)

This book investigates the propagation of waves in the presence of black holes. Astrophysical black holes may eventually be probed by these techniques. The authors emphasise intuitive physical thinking in their treatment of the techniques of analysis of scattering, but alternate this with chapters on…

## Unveiling The Edge Of Time: Black Holes, White Holes, and Worm Holes

An updated look at black holes chronicles their discovery and formation and offers two known ways for humans to build a time machine using the laws of physics. 15,000 first printing.

## Unsolved Mysteries of Science: A Mind-Expanding Journey through a Universe of Big Bangs, Particle Waves, and Other Perplexing Concepts

A LIVELY EXPLORATION OF THE BIGGEST QUESTIONS IN SCIENCE How Did the Universe Begin? The Big Bang has been the accepted theory for decades, but does it explain everything? How Did Life on Earth Get Started? What triggered the cell division that started the evolutionary…

## Lecture Notes on the General Theory of Relativity: From Newton’s Attractive Gravity to the Repulsive Gravity of Vacuum Energy (Lecture Notes in Physics (772))

This book collects lectures on the general theory of relativity given by Dr. Øyvind Grøn at the University of Oslo, Norway. This accessible text allows students to follow the deductions all the way throughout the book.

## Spectral Methods in Quantum Field Theory (Lecture Notes in Physics (777))

In this monograph we apply scattering theory methods to calculations in quantum ?eld theory, with a particular focus on properties of the quantum vacuum. These methods will provide e?cient and reliable solutions to a – riety of problems in quantum ?eld theory. Our approach will…
