Title  Modified Gravity and Cosmology : An Update by the CANTATA Network 
Author(s)  Saridakis, Emmanuel N;Lazkoz, Ruth;Salzano, Vincenzo;Moniz, Paulo Vargas;Capozziello, Salvatore;Beltr??n Jim??nez, Jose;De Laurentis, Mariafelicia;Olmo, Gonzalo J 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XXVII, 629 p. 62 illus., 58 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  With a focus on modified gravity this book presents a review of the recent developments in the fields of gravity and cosmology, presenting the state of the art, highlighting the open problems, and outlining the directions of future research. General Relativity and the ??CDM framework are currently the standard lore and constitute the concordance paradigm of cosmology. Nevertheless, longstanding open theoretical issues, as well as possible new observational ones arising from the explosive development of cosmology in the last two decades, offer the motivation and lead a large amount of research to be devoted in constructing various extensions and modifications. In this review all extended theories and scenarios are first examined under the light of theoretical consistency, and are then applied in various geometrical backgrounds, such as the cosmological and the spherical symmetric ones. Their predictions at both the background and perturbation levels, and concerning cosmology at early, intermediate and late times, are then confronted with the huge amount of observational data that astrophysics and cosmology has been able to offer in the last two decades. Theories, scenarios and models that successfully and efficiently pass the above steps are classified as viable and are candidates for the description of Nature, allowing readers to get a clear overview of the state of the art and where the field of modified gravity is likely to go. This work was performed in the framework of the COST European Action ???Cosmology and Astrophysics Network for Theoretical Advances and Training Actions???  CANTATA

Title  The Interaction of Spin with Gravity in Particle Physics : Low Energy Quantum Gravity 
Author(s)  Lambiase, Gaetano;Papini, Giorgio 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XV, 190 p. 12 illus., 7 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book seeks to present a new way of thinking about the interaction of gravitational fields with quantum systems. Despite the massive amounts of research and experimentation, the myriad meetings, seminars and conferences, all of the articles, treatises and books, and the seemingly endless theorization, quantization and just plain speculation that have been engaged in regarding our evolving understanding of the quantum world, that world remains an enigma, even to the experts. The usefulness of general relativity in this regard has proven to be imperfect at best, but there is a new approach. We do not simply have to accept the limitations of Einstein's most celebrated theorem in regard to quantum theory; we can also embrace them, and thereby utilize them, to reveal new facts about the behavior of quantum systems within inertial and gravitational fields, and therefore about the very structure of space???time at the quantum level. By taking existing knowledge of the essential functionality of spin (along with the careful identification of the omnipresent inertial effects) and applying it to the quantum world, the book gives the reader a much clearer picture of the difference between the classical and quantum behaviors of a particle, shows that Einstein's ideas may not be as incompatible within this realm as many have come to believe, sparks new revelations of the way in which gravity affects quantum systems and brings a new level of efficiency???quantum efficiency, if you will???to the study of gravitational theory

Title  Frontiers in General Relativity 
Author(s)  Hogan, Peter A;Puetzfeld, Dirk 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XI, 246 p. 14 illus., 1 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book discusses some of the open questions addressed by researchers in general relativity. Photons and particles play important roles in the theoretical framework, since they are involved in analyzing and measuring gravitational fields and in constructing mathematical models of gravitational fields of various types. The authors highlight this aspect covering topics such as the construction of models of Bateman electromagnetic waves and analogous gravitational waves, the studies of gravitational radiation in presence of a cosmological constant and the gravitational compass or clock compass for providing an operational way of measuring a gravitational field. The book is meant for advanced students and young researchers in general relativity, who look for an updated text which covers in depth the calculations and, equally, takes on new challenges. The reader, along the learning path, is stimulated by provocative examples interspersed in the text that help to find novel representations of the uses of particles and photons

Title  General Relativity for Planetary Navigation 
Author(s)  Miller, James;Weeks, Connie J 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  VI, 104 p. 18 illus., 1 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This brief approaches General Relativity from a planetary navigation perspective, delving into the unconventional mathematical methods required to produce computer software for space missions. It provides a derivation of the Einstein field equations and describes experiments performed on the Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous mission, spanning General Relativity Theory from the fundamental assumptions to experimental verification. The software used for planetary missions is derived from mathematics that use matrix notation. An alternative is to use Einstein summation notation, which enables the mathematics to be presented in a compact form but makes the geometry difficult to understand. In this book, the relationship of matrix notation to summation notation is shown. The purpose is to enable the reader to derive the mathematics used in the software in either matrix notation or summation notation. This brief is a useful tool for advanced students and young professionals embarking on careers in planetary navigation

Title  The Accretion and Obscured Growth of Supermassive Black Holes : First Constraints on the Local Heavily Obscured AGN Fraction with NuSTAR 
Author(s)  Boorman, Peter 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XXIV, 311 p. 208 illus., 130 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis describes the application of stateoftheart highenergy Xray studies to the astronomical quest for understanding obscured active galactic nuclei (AGN). These AGN are supermassive black holes growing by accretion of matter located in the nuclei of galaxies. The material that feeds these black holes also obscures them from view, rendering them challenging to study. It is possible to study them by effectively 'Xraying' galactic nuclei to peer through these obscuring veils. Beginning with the proofofconcept application of novel Xray Monte Carlo codes to the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope ARray (NuSTAR) spectrum of a known heavily obscured AGN, the thesis establishes the relevant parameters that characterise the AGN spectrum and central black hole growth rate. Next the largest sample of known heavily obscured AGN is compiled, finding the strength of a prominent iron spectral feature to weaken with AGN power. This is puzzling, and suggests that there may be more hidden AGN than previously thought. Finally by combining an allsky infrared selection with NuSTAR followup, new heavily obscured AGN are identified. Obscuration emits infrared radiation, meaning that the infraredselected AGN catalogue should be representative of the underlying AGN population. The absence of such representative catalogues has continually plagued cosmological studies, and the resultant obscured AGN fraction will be strongly constraining for AGN models

Title  Quantum fields: From the Hubble to the Planck Scale 
Author(s)  Michael Kachelriess 
Publication  Oxford University Press 2017. 
Abstract Note  This book introduces quantum field theory, together with its most important applications to cosmology and astroparticle physics, in a coherent framework. The pathintegral approach is employed right from the start, and the use of Green functions and generating functionals is illustrated first in quantum mechanics and then in scalar field theory. Massless spin one and two fields are discussed on an equal footing, and gravity is presented as a gauge theory in close analogy with the Yang–Mills case. Concepts relevant to modern research such as helicity methods, effective theories, decoupling, or the stability of the electroweak vacuum are introduced. Various applications such as topological defects, dark matter, baryogenesis, processes in external gravitational fields, inflation and black holes help students to bridge the gap between undergraduate courses and the research literature.

Title  Relativity in modern physics 
Author(s)  Nathalie Deruelle;JeanPhilippe Uzan 
Publication  Oxford University Press 2018. 
Abstract Note  Newton’s ideas about how to represent space and time, his laws of dynamics, and his theory of gravitation established the conceptual foundation from which modern physics developed. This book offers a modern view of Newtonian theory, emphasizing those aspects needed for understanding quantum and relativistic contemporary physics. In 1905, Albert Einstein proposed a novel representation of space and time, special relativity. The text also presents relativistic dynamics in inertial and accelerated frames, as well as a detailed overview of Maxwell’s theory of electromagnetism, thus providing the background necessary for studying particle and accelerator physics, astrophysics, and Einstein’s theory of general relativity. In 1915, Einstein proposed a new theory of gravitation, general relativity. Finally, the text develops the geometrical framework in which Einstein’s equations are formulated and presents several key applications: black holes, gravitational radiation, and cosmology.
