Title:Essays on the Frontiers of Modern Astrophysics and Cosmology [electronic resource]
Author(s): Santhosh Mathew
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book is a collection of engaging and intriguing essays that describe an intellectual journey from the beginning to the end of universe. It is the product of an ongoing effort to know our place in the universe and share withreaders the underpinni ngs of the magnificent cosmos where we are given a chance to exist only very briefly. The essays incorporate a group of challenging ideas that modern physics and cosmology are struggling to understand, in a uniqueway that incorporates mythological, religi ous, and philosophical perspectives. The author relies on a simple and powerful philosophy that we are part of the universe and the universe is part of us. This wonderful collection ofessays provides a journey through the current frontiers of modern astr ophysics and cosmology. Its depiction of the most important unsolved mysteries about our place in the Universe is peppered with original insights and philosophicalperspectives, making it an intellectual treat. Avi Loeb, Professor, Harvard University Chai r, Astronomy Department Director, Institute for Theory and Computation In these essays, Santhosh Mathew combines an impressive knowledgeof physics with an eye to its connection to Eastern philosophy as well as its relevance to our life in modern times. I n his thoughtful investigation of natural phenomena and their relationship to universal philosophical truths, hetakes up where The Tao of Physics leaves off. You may well find his keen curiosity about the natural world and our place in it infectious. Car ole Bugge (C. E. Lawrence), author of Strings In this informative assemblage ofengaging essays Santhosh Mathew takes the reader on a deeply human quest for truth, a truly inspiring journey that boldly addresses the big questions of what the Universe is, how it came into being, and where it may be heading. Thisexciting adventure is as much a rich scientific history of elegant physics, mathematics, and cosmology as it is a philosophical and

Note:Quantum gravityhas developed into a fast-growing subject in physics and it is expected that probing the high-energy and high-curvature regimes of gravitating systems will shed some light on how to eventually achieve anultraviolet complete quantum the ory of gravity. Such a theory would provide the much needed information about fundamental problems of classical gravity, such as the initial big-bang singularity, the cosmological constant problem,Planck scale physics and the early-time inflationary evolu tion of our Universe. While in the first part of this book concepts of quantum gravity are introduced and approached from different angles, the second part discusses thesetheories in connection with cosmological models and observations, thereby exploring which types of signatures of modern and mathematically rigorous frameworks can be detected by experiments. The third and final part briefly reviews theobservational status of dark matter and dark energy, and introduces alternative cosmological models. E dited and authored by leading researchers in the field and cast into the form of a multi-author textbook at postgraduate level,this volume will be of benefit to all postgraduate students and newcomers from neighboring disciplines wishing to find a compreh ensive guide for their future research

Title:The Formation and Evolution of M33 as Revealed by Its Star Clusters [electronic resource]

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This thesis represents the first wide-field photometric and spectroscopic survey of star clusters in the nearby late-spiral galaxy M33. This system is the nearest example of a dwarf spiral galaxy, which may have a unique role inthe process of galaxy formation and evolution. The cold dark matter paradigm of galaxy formation envisions large spiral galaxies, such as the Milky Way, being formed from the merger and accretion of many smaller dwarf galaxies. Therole that dwarf spiral galaxies play in this p rocess is largely unclear. One of the goals of this thesis is to use the star cluster population of M33 to study its formation and evolution from its early stages to the present. The thesispresents a new comprehensive catalog of M33 star clusters, which i ncludes magnitudes, colors, structural parameters, and several preliminary velocity measurements. Based on an analysis of these data, the thesis concludes that, amongother things, the evolution of M33 has likely been influenced by its nearby massive neigh bor M31

Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In this book, the author leads the reader, step by step and without any advanced mathematics, to a clear understanding of the foundations of modern elementary particle physics and cosmology. He also addresses current andcontroversial questions on top ics such as string theory. The book containsgentle introductions to the theories of special and general relativity, and also classical and quantum field theory. The essential aspects of these conceptsare understood with the help of simple calculations for example, the force of gravity as a consequence of the curvature of the space-time. Also treated are the Big Bang, dark matter and dark energy, as well as the presently knowninteractions of elementary particles: electrodynamics, the strong and the weak in teractions including the Higgs boson. Finally, the book sketches as yet speculative theories: Grand Unification theories, supersymmetry, string theory andthe idea of additional dimensions of space-time. Since no higher mathematical or physics expertise is required, the book is also suitable for college and university students at the beginning of their studies. Hobby astronomers andother science enthusiasts seeking a deeper insight than can be found in popular treatments will also appreciate this unique bo ok

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This current updated and expanded (this is an up-dated English translation of Prof. Khlopov's book Osnovy kosmomikrofiziki, URSS, 2004) text reflects the large number of scientific advances, both theoretical and experimental,within the discipline of cosmic particle physics in the last 10 years. Some of the topics that have been added or updated include but are not limited to: HND or CMD+HND scenarios being implemented into sterile neutrino scenarios, theramifications of extending the forms of dark ma tter with respect to our view of neutrinos, the origin of baryon matter and the need for nonbaryonic matter in current theories, problems the existence of dark matter raises with respectto cosmic particle physics and the relationship with (meta) stable (s uper) weakly interacting particles predicted by the extension of the standard model, restrictions on baryon and lepton photons, as well as problems associated withexpansion, just to name a few. These and many other topics are readdressed in light of recen t both experimental and theoretical developments. Other areas that will be of interest to the reader include the puzzles presented by directand indirect effects of dark matter (e.g, results of experiments such as DAMA/NaI, DAMA/LIBRA and PAMELA) and may l ead to nontrivial new solutions for the problem of its nature, like the existence of new stable families of quarks andleptons and composite dark matter scenario. The present work will be of interest to any researcher in this fascinating field dealing with fundamental interactions of the micro- and macroworld

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Based on a number of new discoveries resulting from 10 years of Chandra and XMM-Newton observations and corresponding theoretical works, this is the first book to address significant progress in the research of the HotInterstellar Matter in Elliptica l Galaxies. A fundamental understanding of the physical properties of the hot ISM in elliptical galaxies is critical, because they are directly related to the formation and evolution of ellipticalgalaxies via star formation episodes, environmental effects such as stripping, infall, and mergers, and the growth of super-massive black holes. Thanks to the outstanding spatial resolution of Chandra and the large collecting area ofXMM-Newton, various fine structures of the hot gas have been imaged in detail and key physical quantities have been accurately measured, allowing theoretical interpretations/predictions to be compared and tested against observationalresults. This book will bring all readers up-to-date on this essential field of research

Title:Matter, Dark Matter, and Anti-Matter [electronic resource] : In Search of the Hidden Universe

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:For over ten years, the dark side of the universe has been headline news. Detailed studies of the rotation of spiral galaxies, and 'mirages' created by clusters of galaxies bending the light from very remote objects, haveconvinced astronomers of the presence of large quantities of dark (unseen) matter in the cosmos. Moreover, in the 1990s, it was discovered that some four to five billion years ago the expansion of the universe entered a phase ofacceleration. This implies the existence of dark energy. The nature of these 'dark ingredients remains a mystery, but they seem to comprise about 95 percent of the matter/energy content of the universe. As for ordinary matter,although we are immersed in a sea of dark particles, including primordial neutrinos a nd photons from 'fossil' cosmological radiation, both we and our environment are made of ordinary, baryonic matter. Strangely, even if 15-20 percentof matter is baryonic matter, this represents only 4-5 percent of the total matter/energy content of the co smos. Here, authors Alain Mazure and Vincent Le Brun present the inventory of matter, both baryonic and exotic, andinvestigatethe nature and fate of matter's twin, anti-matter. According to the standard model, matter and anti-matter should have been forme d in equal quantities. Yet there seems to have been a very slight asymmetry, as yetunexplained, where 100,000,001 particles of matter formed for every 100,000,000 particles of anti-matter! The authors show how developments in technology have led to signif icant progress in scientific research and how, in tandem withthe evolution of new ideas, these advances are helping to lift the cosmic veil

Title:Beyond Einstein Gravity [electronic resource] : A Survey of Gravitational Theories for Cosmology and Astrophysics

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Beyond Einsteins Gravity is a graduate level introduction to extended theories of gravity and cosmology, including variational principles, the weak-field limit, gravitational waves, mathematical tools, exact solutions, as wellas cosmological and astr ophysical applications. The book provides a critical overview of the research in this area and unifies the existing literature using a consistent notation. Although the results apply in principle to allalternative gravities, a special emphasis is on scala r-tensor and f(R) theories. They were studied by theoretical physicists from early on, and in the 1980s they appeared in attempts to renormalize General Relativity and in models ofthe early universe. Recently, these theories have seen a new lease of life, in both their metric and metric-affine versions, as models of the present acceleration of the universe without introducing the mysterious and exotic darkenergy. The dark matter problem can also be addressed in extended gravity. These applications are con tributing to a deeper understanding of the gravitational interaction from both the theoretical and the experimental point of view. Anextensive bibliography guides the reader into more detailed literature on particular topics

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note: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 asfinite and changeable. Nevertheless it is this strange world which is the fundamental basis of our existence. Therefore modern science also has a few things to say about the age-old questions: Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going? The author, an experienced s cientist and teacher, presents the knowledge that we have about our worldfor non-experts. He takes us on a journey through cosmology and the quantum world of elementary particles. Andhe sketches the impact of the insights gained into philosophical assumpt ions and religious beliefs in these disciplines. In the end he asks the speculative question whether there is something beyond the limits of the natural sciences.Gerhard Brner is a Professor of Physics at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich and co nducts research on the early universe and dark matter at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics in Garching near Munich. He received hisPhD for a thesis on particle physics under the supervision of Werner Heisenberg and Hans-Peter Drr. Professor Brner is the author of the successful graduate textbook The Early Universe (published by Springer and now in its 4thedition), as well as of several popular science books on cosmology. In 2009 he received the Chinese Academy of Sciences Award for International C ooperation in Science and Technology (together with Prof. Maurice-Roger Bonnet). In 2010he received the Friendship Award, and in January 2011 the Chinese governments National Award for Cooperation in Science and Technology, the highest honor bestowed on f oreigners

Title:Galaxies and their Masks [electronic resource] : A Conference in Honour of K.C. Freeman, FRS

Note:Various kinds of masks obscure our view of our galaxy, the Milky Way, as well as of other galaxies. Masks of interstellar dust affect our measurements within galaxies, on scales ranging from individual supernovae to the galaxiesthemselves. The mass m ask (our inability to image mass rather than light) gives astronomers a very incomplete picture of the size and structure of galaxies themselves, because we cannot image the dark matter which provides mostof the galactic mass. Another mass is the dynamica l mask: as galaxies form, much dynamical information is lost in the birthing process. A new thrust in research is to retrieve such information by means of chemical tagging. About50 astronomers flew into Namibia in April 2010, to celebrate the 70th birthda y of Professor K.C. Freeman, Fellow of the Royal Society. At age 70, Freeman, a father of dark matter in galaxies, continues to be one of planets mosthighly cited astronomers. The current volume affords readers a unique perspective on galaxies by probing the thoughts of some of the greatest astronomers of our age. Contributions focus on galaxies from within our Local Group to thosein our high redshift Universe. Approximately 40 in-depth review and contributed papers are contained in the volume, each writt en by an expert in the field. Two unusual features of the current volume include the Star Country ofthe San people of southern Africa as well as the introduction into astronomy of The Treachery of Images by the Belgian surrealist artist Ren Magritte. Ever ything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what ishidden by what we see, said Magritte. These words resonate the theme of the current volume Galaxies and their Masks, which is written at a level to be appreciated by both specialist and docto ral student alike

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the largest engineering project ever undertaken, and one of the most expensive. Why are physicists around the world so excited about it? What secrets of the universe does this gargantuan pieceof machinery hope to re veal? What risks are there in operating it? Could the exotic particles that are produced in the collisionsincluding tiny black holes that should wink into and out of existence between subatomic particles bea threat not only to humankind but to the planet itself? In this thorough and engaging review of cutting-edge physics and cosmology, you will learn why the collider was built and how it works. You will find out what scientists arehoping to find out and what current aspects of the Standard Model might ne ed to be revised. You will even learn about the quest to identify so-called dark matter and dark energy, which many now feel make up most of what's out there.This is a wild ride into some very unfamiliar and strange territory, but it is well worth your ti me to explore, as the Large Hadron Collider is set to change some very fundamental ideas of our universe, from the smallest pieces thatmake it up to the grandest

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Are we living in the golden age of cosmology? Are we close to understanding the nature of the unknown ingredients of the currently most accepted cosmological model and the physics of the early Universe? Or are we insteadapproaching a paradigm shift? What is dark matter and does it exist? How is it distributed around galaxies and clusters? Is the scientific community open to alternative ideas that may prompt a new scientific revolution - as theCopernican revolution did in Galileo's time? Do other type s of supernovae exist that can be of interest for cosmology? Why have quasars never been effectively used as standard candles? Can you tell us about the scientific adventure ofCOBE? How does the extraction of the Cosmic Microwave Background anisotropy dep end on the subtraction of the various astrophysical foregrounds? These, among many others, are the astrophysical, philosophical and sociological questionssurrounding modern cosmology and the scientific community that Mauro D'Onofrio and Carlo Burigana pos e to some of the most prominent cosmologists of our time. Triggered by these questions and in the spirit of Galileo's book DialogueConcerning the Two Chief World Systems the roughly 40 interview partners reply in the form of essays, with a critical frankn ess not normally found in reviews, monographs or textbooks

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The dark matter problem is one of the most fundamental and profoundly difficult to solve problems in the history of science. Not knowing what makes up most of the known universe goes to the heart of our understanding of theUniverse and our place in i t. In Search of Dark Matter is the story of the emergence of the dark matter problem, from the initial erroneous discovery of dark matter by Jan Oort to contemporary explanations for the nature of darkmatter and its role in the origin and evolution of the Universe. Written for the educated non-scientist and scientist alike, it spans a variety of scientific disciplines, from observational astronomy to particle physics. Concepts thatthe reader will encounter along the way are at the cutting edge of scientif ic research. However the themes are explained in such a way that no prior understanding of science beyond a high school education is necessary
