      Keeping in mind the broad range of interests and wanting to avoid mathematical compli cations as much as possible, we have ventured to combine all three topics relativity, astrophysics, and cosmology-in a single volume. Naturally, we had to make a careful selection of topics to be discussed in order to keep the book to a manageable s: 1. Get this from a library! Type Ia supernovae: theory and cosmology. [J C Niemeyer; James W Truran;] -- Proceedings of a workshop held at the University of Chicago in .

    Abstract. Contents: 1. Introduction. 2. Matter-enhanced neutrino conversion in nonlinear environments. 3. Core collapse supernovae. 4. The early universe and by: 1. The "standard candles", used to set up the extragalactic distance scale, reviewed in this book include cepheid variables, RR Lyrae variables, novae, Type Ia and Type II supernovae as well as globular clusters and planetary nebulae.

      It would be easy to miss the new book on cosmology by Luke Barnes and Geraint Lewis in a bookstore. One could easily mistake the raised fist artwork on the cover for an indicator of Marxist content. The book’s title, The Cosmic Revolutionary’s Handbook, is not helpful either. Perhaps the publisher, Cambridge University Press, thought this.   This summer course aims to give a broad perspective on gravity, astrophysics and cosmology and is suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in .

Based on a conference at the University of Chicago, this timely volume presents articles by leading experts on the theory of supernovae, observational astronomy, and cosmology. This is a unique and wide-ranging review of one of the most dramatic results in astronomy in recent by: Owing especially to (1) the appearance of supernova A in the nearby Large Magellanic Cloud, (2) the spectacularly successful use of supernovae as distance indicators for cosmology, (3) the association of some supernovae with the enigmatic cosmic gamma-ray bursts, and (4) the discovery of a class of superluminous supernovae, the pace of supernova research has been increasing sharply.5/5(2).

Available in: ations of distant supernovae have recently provided startling evidence of the accelerating expansion of the Universe. The Due to COVID, orders may be : $ The extreme luminosity and their fairly unique temporal behaviour have made supernovae a superb tool to measure distances in the universe.

As complex astrophysical events they provide interesting insights into explosion physics, explosive nucleosynthesis, hydrodynamics of the. This reference work gathers all of the latest research in the supernova field areas to create a definitive source book on supernovae, their remnants and related topics.

It includes each distinct subdiscipline, including stellar types, progenitors, stellar evolution, nucleosynthesis of elements.

A readable book that will take the reader on a journey of discovery. Interesting and thoughtful narrative on what a star is made of how the forming of stars creates new atoms, and how the dying of stars creates new atoms, and how those atom become life.4/5(15).

He has published over refereed scientific papers, a popular book on supernovae and gamma-ray bursts (Cosmic Catastrophes), two novels, and has edited six books. He was a Visiting Fellow at the Joint Institute for Laboratory Astrophysics (JILA) in and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science inAURA/NOAO Visiting Professor.

The Supernova Cosmology Project is one of two research teams that determined the likelihood of an accelerating universe and therefore a positive cosmological constant, using data from the redshift of Type Ia supernovae. The project is headed by Saul Perlmutter at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, with members from Australia, Chile, France, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, the United.

The book starts with an introduction to field theory and gauge theory, with helpful appendices, and it also provides pedagogical, but sufficiently detailed, reviews of supernova physics and.

The book is suitable and most useful to advanced undergraduates, graduate students and scientific professionals (e.g. astronomers, astrophysicists, cosmologists, physicists).

From supernovae and gamma-ray bursts to the accelerating Universe, this is an exploration of the intellectual threads that lead to some of the most exciting ideas in modern astrophysics and cosmology. This fully updated second edition incorporates new material on binary stars, black holes, gamma-ray bursts, worm-holes, quantum gravity and string theory.
