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

Title  With String Theory to the Big Bang : A Journey to the Origin of the Universe 
Author(s)  Louis, Jan 
Publication  Wiesbaden, Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden, 2021. 
Description  X, 57 p. 11 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  The history of the universe has fascinated mankind for centuries. Using the interplay of cosmology, general relativity, particle physics and quantum theory, it is today possible to reconstruct it physically. Only the beginning, the big bang, has so far eluded the established laws of physics. The more one approaches it, the more speculative the story becomes. With this book, the reader is invited on a journey to the Big Bang learning on the way about various physical facts, observations and theories. String theory is introduced as a possible allencompassing physical theory that has the potential to grasp and describe the Big Bang. Its sometimes spectacular predictions, such as additional spatial dimensions or parallel universes, are explained concisely. This Springer essential is a translation of the original German 1st edition essentials, Mit der Stringtheorie zum Urknall by Jan Louis, published by Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden GmbH, part of Springer Nature in 2021. The translation was done with the help of artificial intelligence (machine translation by the service DeepL.com). A subsequent human revision was done primarily in terms of content, so that the book will read stylistically differently from a conventional translation. Springer Nature works continuously to further the development of tools for the production of books and on the related technologies to support the authors. The Contents An introduction and overview of the state of research in cosmology, particle physics and string theory A short version of the history of our universe  from established facts to a selection of speculations The Target Groups Pupils and interested laymen with basic knowledge of natural sciences Students and teachers of all disciplines The Author Prof. Jan Louis studied physics in Karlsruhe, London and Philadelphia and subsequently worked as a research associate at Stanford, CERN and the University of Munich. From 19962002 he held a professorship at the University of Halle and since 2003 he has been at the University of Hamburg, where he heads the Cluster of Excellence "Quantum Universe"

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  Our Place in the Universe  II : The Scientific Approach to Discovery 
Author(s)  Kwok, Sun 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XXIII, 344 p. 117 illus., 101 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Starting from Newton???s times this followup to the author???s Springer book ???Our Place in the Universe  Understanding Fundamental Astronomy from Ancient Discoveries??? addresses the question of ???our place in the Universe??? from astronomical, physical, chemical, biological, philosophical and social perspectives. Using the history of astronomy to illustrate the process of discovery, the emphasis is on the description of the process of how we learned and on the exploration of the impacts of discoveries rather than on the presentation of facts. Thus readers are informed of the influence of science on a broad scale. Unlike the traditional way of teaching science, in this book, the author begins by describing the observations and then discusses various attempts to find answers (including unsuccessful ones). The goal is to help students develop a better appreciation of the scientific process and learn from this process to tackle reallife problems

Title  Geometric Approaches to Quantum Field Theory 
Author(s)  Finn, Kieran 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  XIX, 202 p. 7 illus., 6 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  The ancient Greeks believed that everything in the Universe should be describable in terms of geometry. This thesis takes several steps towards realising this goal by introducing geometric descriptions of systems such as quantum gravity, fermionic particles and the origins of the Universe itself. The author extends the applicability of previous work by Vilkovisky, DeWitt and others to include theories with spin ?? and spin 2 degrees of freedom. In addition, he introduces a geometric description of the potential term in a quantum field theory through a process known as the Eisenhart lift. Finally, the methods are applied to the theory of inflation, where they show how geometry can help answer a longstanding question about the initial conditions of the Universe. This publication is aimed at graduate and advanced undergraduate students and provides a pedagogical introduction to the exciting topic of field space covariance and the complete geometrization of quantum field theory

Title  Expanding Worldviews: Astrobiology, Big History and Cosmic Perspectives 
Author(s)  Crawford, Ian 
Publication  Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2021. 
Description  VI, 377 p. 33 illus., 10 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book collates papers presented at two international conferences (held at the Australian National University in 2018 and Birkbeck College London in 2019) exploring the relationships between big history and astrobiology and their wider implications for society. These two relatively new academic disciplines aim to integrate human history with the wider history of the universe and the search for life elsewhere. The book will show that, despite differences in emphasis, big history and astrobiology share much in common, especially their interdisciplinary approaches and the cosmic and evolutionary perspectives that they both engender. Specifically, the book addresses the unified, allembracing, nature of knowledge, the impact of big history on humanity and the world at large, the possible impact of SETI on astrobiology and big history, the cultural signature of Earth???s inhabitants beyond the atmosphere, and the political implications of a planetary worldview. The principal readership is envisaged to comprise scholars working in the fields of astrobiology, big history and space exploration interested in forging interdisciplinary links between these diverse topics, together with educators, and a wider public, interested in the societal implications of the cosmic and evolutionary perspectives engendered by research in these fields
