Introduction to Cosmic Inflation and Dark Energy

Introduction to Cosmic Inflation and Dark Energy

1st Edition

Forthcoming

Konstantinos Dimopoulos
November 02, 2020

Cosmic inflation and dark energy hold the key to the origin and the eventual fate of the Universe. Despite the increasing prominence of these subjects in research and teaching over the past decade or more, no introductory textbook dedicated to these topics has been previously published. Dr ...

Fundamentals of Radio Astronomy Observational Methods and Astrophysics - Two Volume Set

Fundamentals of Radio Astronomy: Observational Methods and Astrophysics - Two Volume Set

1st Edition

Jonathan Marr, Ronald L. Snell, Stanley E. Kurtz
May 17, 2019

As demonstrated by five Nobel Prizes in physics, radio astronomy has contributed greatly to our understanding of the Universe. Yet for too long, there has been no comprehensive textbook on radio astronomy for undergraduate students. This two-volume set of introductory textbooks is exclusively ...

Fundamentals of Radio Astronomy Astrophysics

Fundamentals of Radio Astronomy: Astrophysics

1st Edition

Ronald L. Snell, Stanley Kurtz, Jonathan Marr
May 14, 2019

As demonstrated by five Nobel Prizes in physics, radio astronomy has contributed greatly to our understanding of the Universe. Courses covering this subject are, therefore, very important in the education of the next generation of scientists who will continue to explore the Cosmos. This textbook, ...

The Physics of Interstellar Dust

The Physics of Interstellar Dust

1st Edition

Endrik Krugel
January 07, 2019

Interstellar dust grains catalyse chemical reactions, absorb, scatter, polarise and re-radiate starlight and constitute the building blocks for the formation of planets. Understanding this interstellar component is therefore of primary importance in many areas of astronomy & astrophysics. For ...

An Introduction to the Science of Cosmology

An Introduction to the Science of Cosmology

1st Edition

Derek Raine, E.G. Thomas
August 01, 2001

A thorough introduction to modern ideas on cosmology and on the physical basis of the general theory of relativity, An Introduction to the Science of Cosmology explores various theories and ideas in big bang cosmology, providing insight into current problems. Assuming no previous knowledge of ...

Cosmology and the Early Universe

Cosmology and the Early Universe

1st Edition

Pasquale Di Bari
May 08, 2018

This book discusses cosmology from both an observational and a strong theoretical perspective. The first part focuses on gravitation, notably the expansion of the universe and determination of cosmological parameters, before moving onto the main emphasis of the book, the physics of the early ...

Cosmology

Cosmology

1st Edition

Nicola Vittorio
November 14, 2017

Modern cosmology has changed significantly over the years, from the discovery to the precision measurement era. The data now available provide a wealth of information, mostly consistent with a model where dark matter and dark energy are in a rough proportion of 3:7. The time is right for a fresh ...

Cosmology for Physicists

Cosmology for Physicists

1st Edition

David Lyth
October 26, 2016

Written by an award-winning cosmologist, this brand new textbook provides advanced undergraduate and graduate students with coverage of the very latest developments in the observational science of cosmology. The book is separated into three parts; part I covers particle physics and general ...

Stellar Explosions Hydrodynamics and Nucleosynthesis

Stellar Explosions: Hydrodynamics and Nucleosynthesis

1st Edition

Jordi Jose
December 22, 2015

Stars are the main factories of element production in the universe through a suite of complex and intertwined physical processes. Such stellar alchemy is driven by multiple nuclear interactions that through eons have transformed the pristine, metal-poor ashes leftover by the Big Bang into a cosmos ...

Fundamentals of Radio Astronomy Observational Methods

Fundamentals of Radio Astronomy: Observational Methods

1st Edition

Jonathan M. Marr, Ronald L. Snell, Stanley E. Kurtz
December 03, 2015

As evidenced by five Nobel Prizes in physics, radio astronomy in its 80-year history has contributed greatly to our understanding of the universe. Yet for too long, there has been no suitable textbook on radio astronomy for undergraduate students. Fundamentals of Radio Astronomy: Observational ...
