About the Book
An authoritative new reference title in this enduringly popular subject - now available as part of the acclaimed Oxford Paperback Reference series Over 350 in-depth entries cover the modern view of cosmology, from cosmic inflation and dark energy to Higgs boson and neutrinos Topics covered include the structure of the Universe - its rate of expansion and the particles out of which it is composed - the evolution of galaxies, galaxy clusters, and cold dark matter Includes both theoretical ideas, such as alternative cosmologies, and observational evidence, such as redshift surveys Appears at a time when there is growing consensus about the origins and development of the Universe Highly illustrated with diagrams and half tones throughout Entry-level web links direct the reader to recommended online resources The Oxford Companion to Cosmology is a comprehensive but accessible encyclopedic overview of this enduringly popular subject. With over 350 in-depth entries - ranging from cosmic inflation and dark energy to Higgs boson and neutrinos - it both illuminates the ideas behind the current understanding of the Universe and outlines the fundamental physics from which those ideas emerge. Subjects covered include the structure of the Universe - its rate of expansion and the particles out of which it is composed - the evolution of galaxies, galaxy clusters, and cold dark matter. It encompasses both theoretical ideas such as alternative cosmologies and the various types of observational evidence, including redshift surveys and cosmic microwave background radiation. It appears at a time when there is a growing consensus about the origins and development of the Universe, centred around the hot Big Bang and the emerging Standard Cosmological Model, and an introductory overview brings the reader up to date on current thinking. Written by established experts in theoretical and observational cosmology, the Companion is an invaluable reference resource for students, teachers, science writers, and anyone with a serious interest in cosmology. Extensive cross-referencing allows the reader to unravel the ideas behind the terminology, and over 170 illustrations bring the subject to life. An index offers an alternative way of exploring the topics covered, and recommended entry-level web links provide a source of valuable extra information. Readership: Professional and scientifically literate amateur astronomers; A-level and undergraduate students; science journalists; academics working in physical sciences. Also for anyone seriously interested in this popular subject and wanting to know about the origins and development of the Universe.
