TitleDark matter and cosmic web story
Author(s)Jaan Einasto
PublicationNew Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2013.
Descriptionxiii, 350p.
Series(Advanced Series in Astrophysics and Cosmology)
Abstract NoteThe concepts of dark matter and the cosmic web are some of the most significant developments in cosmology in the past century. They have decisively changed the classical cosmological paradigm, which was first elaborated upon during the first half of the 20th century but ran into serious problems in the second half. Today, they are integral parts of modern cosmology, which explains everything from the Big Bang to inflation to the large scale structure of the Universe. Dark Matter and Cosmic Web Story describes the contributions that led to a paradigm shift from the Eastern point of view. It describes the problems with the classical view, the attempts to solve them, the difficulties encountered by those solutions, and the conferences where the merits of the new concepts were debated. Amidst the science, the story of scientific work in a small country occupied by the Soviet Union and the tumultuous events that led to its breakup are detailed as well.This book is accompanied by a website which contains additional material: copies of the originals of some crucial papers, astronomical movies, and movies which showcase the private life of the author.
Contents Note1 Prologue 2 Classical Cosmological Paradigm 3 Galactic Models and Dark Matter in the Solar Vicinity 4 Global Dark Matter 5 The Cosmic Web 6 The Nature of Dark Matter 7 The Structure of the Cosmic Web 8 Cosmic Inflation, Dark Energy and the Evolution of the Universe 9 Epilogue

TitleWeight of the vacuum: A Scientific History of Dark Energy
Author(s)Heige S. Kragh ;James M. Overduin
PublicationHeidelberg, Springer, 2014.
Descriptionviii, 113p.
Series(Springer Briefs in Physics)
Abstract NoteThe 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded for the discovery of cosmic acceleration due to dark energy, a discovery that is all the more perplexing as nobody knows what dark energy actually is. We put the modern concept of cosmological vacuum energy into historical context and show how it grew out of disparate roots in quantum mechanics (zero-point energy) and relativity theory (the cosmological constant, Einstein's 'greatest blunder'). These two influences have remained strangely aloof and still co-exist in an uneasy alliance that is at the heart of the greatest crisis in theoretical physics, the cosmological-constant problem.

TitleSupersymmetry: Theory, Experiment, and Cosmology
Author(s)Pierre Binetruy
PublicationOxford, Oxford University Press, 2006.
Descriptionxii, 520p.
Abstract Notehis book describes the basic concepts of supersymmetric theories. It is aimed at theorists, experimentalists and cosmologists interested in supersymmetry, and its content is correspondingly divided into three distinct tracks of study. The topics covered include a discussion of the motivation for supersymmetry in fundamental physics, a description of the minimal supersymmetric model as well as models of grand unification and string models, a presentation of the main scenarios for supersymmetry breaking, including the concepts and results of dynamical breaking. On the astrophysics/cosmology side, the book includes discussions of supersymmetric dark matter candidates, inflation, dark energy, and the cosmological constant problem. Some very basic knowledge of quantum field theory is needed and extensive appendices (in particular an introduction to the Standard Model of fundamental interactions) allow the reader to refresh and complete their notions.

TitleBeyond Einstein gravity: A survey of gravitational theories for cosmology and astrophysics
Author(s)Salvatore Capozziello;Valerio Faraoni
PublicationDordrecht, Springer, 2011.
Descriptionxix, 428p.
Series(Fundamental Theories of Physics)
Abstract NoteBeyond Einstein’s Gravity is a graduate level introduction to extended theories of gravity and cosmology, including variational principles, the weak-field limit, gravitational waves, mathematical tools, exact solutions, as well as cosmological and astrophysical applications. The book provides a critical overview of the research in this area and unifies the existing literature using a consistent notation. Although the results apply in principle to all alternative gravities, a special emphasis is on scalar-tensor and f(R) theories. They were studied by theoretical physicists from early on, and in the 1980s they appeared in attempts to renormalize General Relativity and in models of the early universe. Recently, these theories have seen a new lease of life, in both their metric and metric-affine versions, as models of the present acceleration of the universe without introducing the mysterious and exotic dark energy. The dark matter problem can also be addressed in extended gravity. These applications are contributing to a deeper understanding of the gravitational interaction from both the theoretical and the experimental point of view. An extensive bibliography guides the reader into more detailed literature on particular topics.
