Surveying key developments and open issues in cosmology for graduate students and researchers, this book focuses on the general concepts and relations that underpin the standard model of the Universe. It also examines anisotropic and inhomogeneous models, and deeper issues, such as quantum cosmology and the multiverse proposal.

Relativistic Cosmology

This book is concerned mainly with various models that have been proposed to explain the large scale structure of the universe. Even a very knowledgeable student of the Cosmology will find much new information in this book.

Relativistic Cosmology is an exciting update of mathematical interpretation of the universe. It is aimed primarily at advanced post graduate students in mathematics as well as physics and astronomy, but is also useful as a supplementary text at higher level as research scholars. This book deals with observational results, descriptions of special and general theory of relativity and applications of relativistic mechanics and relativistic thermodynamics to cosmology. This book is concerned mainly with various models that have been proposed to explain the large scale structure of the universe. Even a very knowledgeable student of the Cosmology will find much new information in this book. While the explanatory discussions are brief, they are sufficiently substantive to serve the subject in the question and to pique further interest in the topic. This book is not merely written or complied, it is crafted. It is designed for a specific audience and the texture and sensory format is carefully chosen for the audience. This is a wonderful book that presents an eclectic selection of cosmological concepts and concerned calculations. It is an ideal text book for the era of precision cosmology in the accelerating universe. This book, as it is hoped, will certainly find a warm reception in the hands of the readers.

Since the first French edition of the book emphasized rather the solid facts of Cosmology than the detailed discussions of controversial results, relatively few revisions were necessary for the English edition. They were made early in 1979 and affected about 5% of the text. The main revisions referred to the distance scale, the dlstribution of galaxies, the X-ray observations of clusters, the cosmic time evolution of quasars and radiogalaxies and the 3 K radiation. A new short bibliography presents the recent articles and the latest proceedings of Symposia; from these the reader can easily trace a more complete list of refer ences. I am happy to thank Professor Beiglbock for suggestions he made to improve Part lIon Spaces of Constant Curvature, and Drs. S. and J. Mitton for translating the manuscript into English. I also thank with pleasure Marie-Ange Sevin for correcting the final version. J. Heidmann March 1980, Meudon, France Preface The aim of this book is to present the fundamentals of cosmology. Its subject is the study of the universe on a grand scale: - on a grand distance scale, since from the start, we shall be escaping the con fines of our own Galaxy to explore space as far as the limits of the observable universe, some ten thousand million light years away; - and on a grand time scale, as we shall look back into the past to the very first moments of the initial expansion, about twelve thousand million years ago.

Introduction to General Relativistic and Scalar tensor Cosmologies

View: 703

This book offers an introduction to General Relativity and its mathematical tools, together with an introduction to relativistic and scalar-tensor cosmologies. Part I deals with Tensor Calculus. Part II introduces General Relativity Theory, while Part III deals with Relativistic Cosmology. In Part IV we work Scalar-Tensor theories, concentrating in Cosmological Models. In the last chapters, the cosmological models presented, become more and more sophisticated, including some new cases, never published elsewhere, in which all fundamental "constants" are made to vary, with the age of the Universe, namely, the gravitational, the cosmological, the coupling Brans-Dicke "constants", the speed of light, Planck's "fine -structure "constant" alpha" etc. This is a mathematical cosmology textbook that may lead undergraduates, and graduate students, to one of the frontiers of research, while keeping the prerequisites to a minimum, because most of the theory in the book requires only prior knowledge of Calculus and a University Physics course.

Kreativität ist zu einem Schlüsselbegriff innerhalb der Wissenschaften, der Forschung, der Wirtschaft und der Medien aufgestiegen. Sie ist ein zentrales Thema der öffentlichen Diskussion und schwingt stets mit, wenn von Innovation, Fortschritt, Zukunft der Wissensgesellschaft, Genforschung, Bioethik, virtuellen Welten und künstlicher Intelligenz die Rede ist. Zugleich spielt Kreativität eine grundlegende Rolle sowohl in den sozialen, wissenschaftlichen und technischen Fähigkeiten und Kompetenzen des Menschen, wie auch in unserem alltäglichen Wahrnehmen, Sprechen, Denken und Handeln. Die Autoren dieses Bandes nehmen sich des Themas gezielt an, reflektieren die Formen, Praktiken und Dynamiken von Kreativität sowie deren Bedingungen und Voraussetzungen und heben die Logik von Kreativitätsprozessen ins Blickfeld.
