Title:Principles of Astrophysics [electronic resource] : Using Gravity and Stellar Physics to Explore the Cosmos
Author(s): Charles Keeton
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book gives a survey of astrophysics at the advanced undergraduate level. It originates from a two-semester course sequence at Rutgers University that is meant to appeal not only to astrophysics students but also morebroadly to physics and engine ering students. The organization is driven more by physics than by astronomy in other words, topics are first developed in physics and then applied to astronomical systems that can be investigated,rather than the other way around. The first half of the bo ok focuses on gravity. Gravity is the dominant force in many astronomical systems, so a tremendous amount can be learned by studying gravity, motion and mass. The theme inthis part of the book, as well as throughout astrophysics, is using motion to invest igate mass. The goal of Chapters 2-11 is to develop a progressively richer understanding of gravity as it applies to objects ranging from planets andmoons to galaxies and the universe as a whole. The second half uses other aspects of physics to address on e of the big questions. While Why are we here? lies beyond the realm of physics, a closely related question is withinour reach: How did we get here? The goal of Chapters 12-21 is to understand the physics behind the remarkable story of how the Universe, E arth and life were formed. This book assumes familiarity with vector calculus andintroductory physics (mechanics, electromagnetism, gas physics and atomic physics) however, all of the physics topics are reviewed as they come up (and vital aspects of vecto r calculus are reviewed in the Appendix). This volume isaimed at undergraduate students majoring in astrophysics, physics or engineering

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Essential Astrophysics is a book to learn or teach from, as well as a fundamental reference volume for anyone interested in astronomy and astrophysics. It presents astrophysics from basic principles without requiring any previousstudy of astronomy or astrophysics. It serves as a comprehensive introductory text, which takes the student through the field of astrophysics in lecture-sized chapters of basic physical principles applied to the cosmos. Thisone-semester overview will be enjoyed by undergradua te students with an interest in the physical sciences, such as astronomy, chemistry, engineering or physics, as well as by any curious student interested in learning about ourcelestial science. The mathematics required for understanding the text is on the level of simple algebra, for that is all that is needed to describe the fundamental principles. The text is of sufficient breadth and depth to prepare theinterested student for more advanced specialized courses in the future. Astronomical examples are pr ovided throughout the text, to reinforce the basic concepts and physics, and to demonstrate the use of the relevant formulae. In thisway, the student learns to apply the fundamental equations and principles to cosmic objects and situations. All of the exa mples are solved with the rough accuracy needed to portray the basic result. Astronomical and physical constantsand units as well as the most fundamental equations can be found in the appendix. Essential Astrophysics goes beyond the typical textbook by in cluding references to the seminal papers in the field, with further reference to recentapplications, results, or specialized literature. There are fifty set-aside focus elements that enhance and augment the discussion with fascinating details. They includ e the intriguing historical development of particular topics andprovide further astrophysics equations or equations for other topics. Kenneth Lang is a world-renowned author on astrophysics. His book

Title:Particle Accelerators, Colliders, and the Story of High Energy Physics [electronic resource] : Charming the Cosmic Snake
Author(s): Raghavan Jayakumar
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Nordic mythological Cosmic Serpent, Ouroboros, is said to be coiled in the depths of the sea, surrounding the Earth with its tail in its mouth. In physics, this snake is a metaphor for the Universe, where the head,symbolizing the largest entity the Cosmos is one with the tail, symbolizing the smallest the fundamental particle. Particle accelerators, colliders and detectors are built by physicists and engineers to uncover the natureof the Universe while discovering its building blocks. Charming the Cosmic Snake takes the readers through the science behind these experimental machines: the physics principles that each stage of the development of particleaccelerators helped to reveal, and the particles they helped to discover. The book culminates with a description of the Large Hadron Collider, one of the worlds largest and most complex machines operating in a 27-km circumferencetunnel near Geneva. That collider may prove or disprove many of our basic theories about the nature of matter. The book provides the material honestly without misrepresenting the science for the sake of excitement or glossing overdifficult notions. The principles behind each type of accelerator is made accessible to the undergraduate student and even to a lay reader with c artoons, illustrations and metaphors. Simultaneously, the book also caters to differentlevels of readers background and provides additional materials for the more interested or diligent reader

Title:Emigrating Beyond Earth [electronic resource] : Human Adaptation and Space Colonization
Author(s): Cameron M Smith
Evan T Davies
Date:2012
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:For four million years humankind has been actively expanding geographically and in doing so has adapted to a wide variety of hostile environments. Now we are looking towards the ultimate adaptation - the colonization of space.Emigrating Beyond Earth illustrates that this is not a technocratic endeavor, but a natural continuation of human evolution a journey not just for the engineer and rocket scientist, but for everyman. Based on the most currentunderstanding of our universe, human adaptation and ev olution, the authors explain why space colonization must be planned as an adaptation to, rather than the conquest of, space. Emigrating Beyond Earth argues that space colonizationis an insurance policy for our species, and that it isn't about rockets and robots, it's about humans doing what we've been doing for four million years: finding new places and new ways to live. Applying a unique anthropologicalapproach, the authors outline a framework for continued human space exploration and offer a glimpse of a possible human future involving interstellar travel and settlement of worlds beyond our own

Title:Number Theory [electronic resource] : An Introduction to Mathematics
Author(s): W.A Coppel
Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Number Theory is more than a comprehensive treatment of the subject. It is an introduction to topics in higher level mathematics, and unique in its scope topics from analysis, modern algebra, and discrete mathematics are allincluded. The book is divi ded into two parts. Part A covers key concepts of number theory and could serve as a first course on the subject. Part B delves into more advanced topics and an exploration of related mathematics. Part Bcontains, for example, complete proofs of the HasseM inkowski theorem and the prime number theorem, as well as self-contained accounts of the character theory of finite groups and the theory of elliptic functions. The prerequisitesfor this self-contained text are elements from linear algebra. Valuable refer ences for the reader are collected at the end of each chapter. It is suitable as an introduction to higher level mathematics for undergraduates, or forself-study. From the reviews: This is a book which many mathematicians could enjoy browsing, and one whi ch a good undergraduate could be encouraged to read to learn something of the interconnections, which exist between apparentlydisparate parts of mathematics. Canadian Mathematical Society As a source for information on the 'reach' of number theory into ot her areas of mathematics, it is an excellent work. Mathematical Association of America

Title:The Universe Before the Big Bang [electronic resource] Cosmology and String Theory
Author(s): Maurizio Gasperini
Date:2008
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Terms such as expanding Universe, big bang, and initial singularity, are nowadays part of our common language. The idea that the Universe we observe today originated from an enormous explosion (big bang) is now wellknown and widely accepted, at all l evels, in modern popular culture. But what happens to the Universe before the big bang? And would it make any sense at all to ask such a question? In fact, recent progress in theoretical physics, andin particular in String Theory, suggests answers to the above questions, providing us with mathematical tools able in principle to reconstruct the history of the Universe even for times before the big bang. In the emerging cosmologicalscenario the Universe, at the epoch of the big bang, instead of being a new born baby was actually a rather aged creature in the middle of its possibly infinitely enduring evolution. The aim of this book is to convey thispicture in non-technical language accessible also to non-specialists. The author, himself a leading cosmologis t, draws attention to ongoing and future observations that might reveal relics of an era before the big bang

Title:Calibrating the Cosmos [electronic resource] : How Cosmology Explains Our Big Bang Universe
Author(s): Frank S Levin
Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Calibrating the Cosmos describes hard science, but is gently written. It explains in clear, non-mathematical language the measurements and the interpretation of the resulting data that have led to the current understanding of theorigin, evolution and properties of our expanding Big Bang universe. Many people have a sketchy idea of the work of cosmologists, but Professor Levins experience in teaching both scientific and liberal arts students has enabled himto impart much of our current thinking withou t resorting to difficult mathematics. Theoretical concepts are emphasized, in particular the symmetries of homogeneity and isotropy enjoyed by our universe on the largest scales, how thesesymmetries lead to only one quantity being needed to describe the g rowth of the universe from its infancy to the present time, and how the so-called parameters of the universe are the ingredients used to construct the model universesto which ours the real thing is compared. Levin includes the 2003 results from the Wilk inson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) and the 2003 and 2004 results of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey to ensure that the book is up to date.He explains the relevance of the discoveries done by the new physics Nobel laureates Smoot and Mather! Background m aterial is provided in the first four chapters the current picture and how it was attained are discussed in the nextfour chapters and some unsolved problems and conjectured solutions are explored in the final chapter

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Undergraduate courses in mathematics are commonly of two types. On the one hand are courses in subjectssuch as linear algebra or real analysiswith which it is considered that every student of mathematics should beacquainted. On the other hand are cou rses given by lecturers in their own areas of specialization, which are intended to serve as a preparation for research. But after taking courses of only these two types, students might not perceivethe sometimes surprising interrelationships and analogies between different branches of mathematics, and students who do not go on to become professional mathematicians might never gain a clear understanding of the nature and extent ofmathematics. The two-volume Number Theory: An Introduction to Mathematics att empts to provide such an understanding of the nature and extent of mathematics. It is a modern introduction to the theory of numbers, emphasizing itsconnections with other branches of mathematics. Part A, which should be accessible to a first-year undergr aduate, deals with elementary number theory. Part B is more advanced than the first and should give the reader some idea of thescope of mathematics today. The connecting theme is the theory of numbers. By exploring its many connections with other branches , we may obtain a broad picture. Audience This book is intended for undergraduate students in mathematicsand engineering

Title:The Universe of Fluctuations [electronic resource] The Architecture of Spacetime and the Universe

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Universe of Fluctuations: The Architecture of Spacetime and the Universe is a path-breaking work which proposes solutions to the impasse and crisis facing fundamental physics and cosmology. It describes a cosmological modelbased on fuzzy spacetim e that has correctly predicted a dark-energy-driven acceleration of our expanding universe - with a small cosmological constant - at a time when the popular belief was quite the contrary. It describes how theUniverse is made up of an underpinning of Planc k oscillators in a Quantum Vacuum. This leads to, amongst other things, a characterization of gravitation as being distributional over the entire Universe, thereby providing an answer to apuzzle brought to light by Weinberg years ago and since overlooked. There is also a simple formula for the mass spectrum of all known elementary particles, based on QCD dynamics. Many other interesting ramifications and experimentaltests for the future are also discussed. This apart, there is a brief survey of some of th e existing theories. The book is accessible to junior and senior researchers in High Energy Physics and Cosmology as well as the serious graduatestudent in Physics
