By Luca Amendola,Shinji Tsujikawa

darkish strength, the mysterious reason for the accelerating growth of the universe, is without doubt one of the most vital fields of analysis in astrophysics and cosmology this day. Introducing the theoretical rules, observational tools and effects, this textbook is very best to graduate classes on darkish strength, and also will complement complicated cosmology classes. supplying a radical creation to this intriguing box, the textbook covers the cosmological consistent, quintessence, k-essence, ideal fluid versions, extra-dimensional types, and changed gravity. Observational learn is reviewed, from the cosmic microwave heritage to baryon acoustic oscillations, vulnerable lensing and cluster abundances. each bankruptcy ends with difficulties, with complete suggestions supplied, and any calculations are labored via step-by-step.

After Life

Existence is certainly one of our most elementary innovations, and but while tested at once it proves remarkably contradictory and elusive, encompassing either the broadest and the main particular phenomena. we will be able to see this uncertainty approximately lifestyles in our behavior of impending it as whatever instantly medical and mystical, within the go back of vitalisms of every kind, and within the pervasive politicization of existence.

Invariant Random Fields on Spaces with a Group Action (Probability and Its Applications)

The writer describes the present cutting-edge within the conception of invariant random fields. This conception is predicated on numerous diverse parts of arithmetic, together with likelihood conception, differential geometry, harmonic research, and exact features. the current quantity unifies many effects scattered in the course of the mathematical, actual, and engineering literature, in addition to it introduces new effects from this quarter first proved through the writer.

Physik ohne Realität: Tiefsinn oder Wahnsinn? (German Edition)

Beschreiben die Begriffe der modernen Physik die „Realität“ oder sind sie nur Hilfsmittel und Rechenwerkzeuge? Wie können reale Objekte aus Atomen aufgebaut sein, wenn diese angeblich gar keine realen Eigenschaften vor deren Messung besitzen? Wie kann Schrödingers Wellenfunktion erfolgreich die Struktur und Stabilität von Atomen, Molekülen und Festkörpern beschreiben, wenn sie nur „menschliches Wissen“ oder abstrakte „Information“ darstellt?

Particle Physics at the Year of Centenary of Bruno Pontecorvo:Proceedings of the Sixteenth Lomonosov Conference on Elementary Particle Physics

Those lawsuits are dedicated to a large choice of things, either in idea and test, of particle physics similar to neutrino and astroparticle physics, assessments of the normal version and past, and hadron physics. additionally coated are gravitation and cosmology, and physics from current and destiny accelerators.
