Dark Matter in the Universe (Second Edition) - 4th Jerusalem Winter School for Theoretical Physics Lectures
1 Dark Matter in the Universe (Second Edition) - 4th Jerusalem Winter School for Theoretical Physics Lectures
World Scientific Publishing Company 2004-09-30 9812388400 / 9789812388407 2 Hardcover Fine 
9812388400 2004 World Scientific Publishing Company. Second Edition. This hardcover copy is in excellent condition. The text is unmarked and the binding is sturdy. "If standard gravitational theory is correct, then most of the matter in the universe is in an unidentified form which does not emit enough light to have been detected by current instrumentation. This review volume is the extended editon of the lectures given in the 4th Jerusalem Winter School of Theoretical Physics, with new materials added in. It devoted to the discussion of the so-called "missing matter" problem in the universe - dark matter and dark energy. The goal of this volume is to make current research work on unseen matter accessible to students of faculties without prior experience in this area." 100% customer satisfaction guaranteed.

The book addresses the interdisciplinary applications of these ideas, and also on various phenomena that could possibly be quantitatively describable in terms of these ideas." 100% customer satisfaction guaranteed.

"This book addresses a broad range of problems related to observed manifestations of chaotic motions in galactic and stellar objects, by invoking basic theory, numerical modeling, and observational evidence. For the first time, methods of stochastic dynamics are applied to actually observed astronomical objects, e.g. the gaseous disc of the spiral galaxy NGC 3631. In the latter case, the existence of chaotic trajectories in the boundary of giant vortices was recently found by the calculation of the Lyapunov characteristic number of these trajectories." 100% customer satisfaction guaranteed.

The text is unmarked/unread and the binding is sturdy. "Starbursts are important features of early galaxy evolution. Many of the distant, high-redshift galaxies we are able to detect are in a starbursting phase, often apparently provoked by a violent gravitational interaction with another galaxy. In fact, if we did not know that major starbursts existed, these conference proceedings testify that we would indeed have difficulties explaining the key properties of the Universe!" 100% customer satisfaction guaranteed.

"Quasars, and the menagerie of other galaxies with "unusual nuclei", now collectively known as Active Galactic Nuclei or AGN, have, in one form or another, sparked the interest of astronomers for over 60 years. The only known mechanism that can explain the staggering amounts of energy emitted by the innermost regions of these systems is gravitational energy release by matter falling towards a supermassive black hole --- a black hole whose mass is millions to billions of times the mass of our Sun. AGN emit radiation at all wavelengths." 100% customer satisfaction guaranteed. We process and ship orders daily, securely and with delivery confirmation.

Thus, young researchers, in particular, have to learn how to persevere during the period of controversy and struggle for acceptance. Unfortunately, the skills needed are not taught in textbooks or monographs, which mostly describe the consensus of contemporary experts. This book, which is based on my own experiences as a scientist, describes the history of the progress made in auroral science and magnetospheric physics by providing examples of ideas, controversies, struggles, acceptance, and success in some instances." 100% customer satisfaction guaranteed.
