Title  The Theory of Direct Dark Matter Detection : A Guide to Computations 
Author(s)  Del Nobile, Eugenio 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XVI, 250 p. 20 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book is a pedagogical guide on how to make computations in direct dark matter (DM) detection. The theory behind the calculation of direct detection cross sections and rates is presented, touching aspects related to elementary particle physics, hadronic physics, nuclear physics, and astrophysics. The book is structured in selfcontained sections, covering several topics ranging from the scattering kinematics to the phenomenology of direct DM searches. It follows a modelindependent approach, aiming at providing the readers with all that is needed to understand the theory and start their own analysis. Meant for graduate students and researchers with interests in particle physics and phenomenology, it is enriched with several worked examples from standard and nonstandard particle DM models. Senior researchers working in different areas related to dark matter, like particle and nuclear physics, astrophysics, and cosmology, find in this book a useful and updated guide for reference

Title  Timeless Quantum Mechanics and the Early Universe 
Author(s)  Chataignier, Leonardo 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XX, 242 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book is based on the author's PhD thesis, which deals with the concept of time in quantum gravity and its relevance for the physics of the early Universe. It presents a consistent and complete new relational formulation of quantum gravity (more specifically, of quantum mechanics models with diffeomorphism invariance), which is applied to potentially observable cosmological effects. The work provides answers to the following questions: How can the dynamics of quantum states of matter and geometry be defined in a diffeomorphisminvariant way? What is the relevant space of physical states and which operators act on it? How are the quantum states related to probabilities in the absence of a preferred time? The answers can provide a further part of the route to constructing a fundamental theory of quantum gravity. The book is wellsuited to graduate students as well as professional researchers in the fields of general relativity and gravitation, cosmology, and quantum foundations

Title  Cosmic Origins : Science???s Long Quest to Understand How Our Universe Began 
Author(s)  Waldrop, M. Mitchell 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XI, 152 p. 37 illus., 28 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Cosmic Origins tells the story of how physicists and astronomers have struggled for more than a century to understand the beginnings of our universe, from its origins in the Big Bang to the modern day. The book will introduce the science as a narrative, by telling the story of the scientists who made each major discovery. It will also address and explain aspects of our theories that some cosmologists are still hesitant to accept, as well as gaps in our knowledge and even apparent inconsistencies in our measurements. Clearly written by a master of scientific exposition, this book will fascinate the curious general reader as well as providing essential background reading for collegelevel courses on physics and astronomy

Title  On Generalised Statistical Equilibrium and Discrete Quantum Gravity 
Author(s)  Kotecha, Isha 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XIX, 180 p. 25 illus., 5 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Absolute concepts of time and energy are integral to standard thermal physics, but background independent systems are devoid of them. This thesis explores the foundational question of generalising equilibrium statistical mechanics to background independent systems, and applies the resulting formulation to nonperturbative discrete quantum gravity. It offers a discussion of the rich interface of thermal physics and quantum gravity in this context, providing a broad contextualisation of such topics. This work details how standard tools from manybody physics can be generalised to discrete quantum gravity labelled with graphbased, or dual polyhedral, quanta that are common to various approaches like tensorial group field theory, loop quantum gravity, dynamical triangulations and lattice quantum gravity. It provides a systematic investigation, both conceptual and technical, of quantum gravitational Gibbs states, thermofield double vacuum states, and their application in condensate cosmology to probe questions of Big Bang singularity resolution and geometric inflation

Title  Advances in Cosmology : Science  Art  Philosophy 
Author(s)  StreitBianchi, Marilena;Catapano, Paola;Galbiati, Cristiano;Magnani, Enrico 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XXII, 376 p. 154 illus., 138 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Cosmology???s journey to the present day has been a long one. This book outlines the latest research on modern cosmology and related topics from worldclass experts. Through it, readers will learn how multidisciplinary approaches and technologies are used to search the unknown and how we arrived at the knowledge used and assumptions made by cosmologists today. The book is organized into four parts, each exploring a theme that has troubled humankind for centuries. Since the dawn of time, looking at the sky, humans have tried to understand their origin, the laws governing it, and what influence it all has on human life. In most ancient civilizations, astronomers embodied the power of knowledge. This knowledge was not compartmentalized, and scientists often found philosophical implications within their quests, many of which destroyed the borders between the natural sciences. Even now, as observers and scientists continue to use conjecture to generate theoretical assumptions and laws that then have to be confirmed experimentally, said theoretical and experimental searches are being linked to philosophical thinking and artistic representation, as they were up until the 18th century. This multidisciplinary book will appeal to anyone with an interest in the fields of Astronomy, Cosmology or Physics

Title  New Relativity in the Gravitational Universe : The Theory of Cosmic Relativity and Its Experimental Evidence 
Author(s)  Unnikrishnan, C. S 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XXI, 485 p. 96 illus., 81 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Our vast Universe is filled with an enormous amount of matter and energy, which are the source of large gravitational potentials affecting all physical phenomena. Because this fact about the size and contents of the Universe was not known when our fundamental theories of dynamics and relativity were completed by the 1920s, the current theories  based as they are in empty space  fail to incorporate cosmic gravity. Though the current theories are consistent with the majority of empirical facts, there are some crucial discrepancies, which demand a drastic shift to a cosmic gravitational paradigm for the theories of relativity and dynamics. The book is a detailed and widely accessible account of this paradigm, called Cosmic Relativity, supported by ample empirical evidence. It is established that all motional relativistic effects are cosmic gravitational effects. The new theory of Cosmic Relativity solves and answers all outstanding questions and puzzles about dynamics and relativity

Title  LargeScale Structure of the Universe : Cosmological Simulations and Machine Learning 
Author(s)  Moriwaki, Kana 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Nature Singapore, 2022. 
Description  XII, 120 p. 46 illus., 44 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Line intensity mapping (LIM) is an observational technique that probes the largescale structure of the Universe by collecting light from a wide field of the sky. This book demonstrates a novel analysis method for LIM using machine learning (ML) technologies. The author develops a conditional generative adversarial network that separates designated emission signals from sources at different epochs. It thus provides, for the first time, an efficient way to extract signals from LIM data with foreground noise. The method is complementary to conventional statistical methods such as crosscorrelation analysis. When applied to threedimensional LIM data with wavelength information, high reproducibility is achieved under realistic conditions. The book further investigates how the trained machine extracts the signals, and discusses the limitation of the ML methods. Lastly an application of the LIM data to a study of cosmic reionization is presented. This book benefits students and researchers who are interested in using machine learning to multidimensional data not only in astronomy but also in general applications

Title  Exact SpaceTime Models of Gravitational Waves 
Author(s)  Hogan, Peter A;Puetzfeld, Dirk 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  VII, 86 p. 3 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  The book is about exact spacetime models of the gravitational fields produced by gravitational radiation. The authors??? extensive work in the field is reviewed in order to stimulate the study of such models, that have been known for a long time, and to highlight interesting physical aspects of the existing models in some novel detail. There is an underlying simplicity to the gravitational radiation studied in this book. Apart from the basic assumption that the radiation has clearly identifiable wave fronts, the gravitational waves studied are directly analogous to electromagnetic waves. The book is meant for advanced students and researchers who have a knowledge of general relativity sufficient to carry out research in the field

Title  Beyond the Standard Model Cocktail : A Modern and Comprehensive Review of the Major Open Puzzles in Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology with a Focus on Heavy Dark Matter 
Author(s)  Gouttenoire, Yann 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2022. 
Description  XXIII, 519 p. 91 illus., 82 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a remarkable and complete survey of important questions at the interface between theoretical particle physics and cosmology. After discussing the theoretical and experimental physics revolution that led to the rise of the Standard Model in the past century, the author reviews all the major open puzzles, among them the hierarchy problem, the small value of the cosmological constant, the matterantimatter asymmetry, and the dark matter enigma, including the stateoftheart regarding proposed solutions. Also addressed are the rapidly expanding fields of thermal dark matter, cosmological firstorder phase transitions and gravitationalwave signatures. In addition, the book presents the original and interdisciplinary PhD research work of the author relating to WeaklyInteractingMassiveParticles around the TeV scale, which are among the most studied dark matter candidates. Motivated by the absence of experimental evidence for such particles, this thesis explores the possibility that dark matter is much heavier than what is conventionally assumed
