A collection of major articles by many of the key players in particle physics and cosmology.
A survey of the main theorietical underpinnings to cosmic origins. Written for the lay-person.
Presents the implications of the 1992 discovery of ripples in the cosmic microwave background radiation. Also argues that there could have been a multitude of universes, not just the one that evolved into the cosmos we inhabit.
To quote from the publishers: "A down-to-earth tour of space, time and the wonders of the cosmos."
A non-technical survey of the standard model of matter and its fundamental building blocks.
Excellent textbook on astronomy and astrophysics, with chapters on cosmology and guest essays Steven Hawking and other leading cosmologists and physicists.
Well-organized and accessible presentation of the history of supercomputing and its applicatations to science, including cosmology.
Readable and comprehensive account of recent advances in particle physics and their implications for cosmology.
This book offers a thorough, though rather dense account of how the cosmos came into being and its subsequent evolution to the present day. As the title suggests, current efforts to explain the universe's "hidden mass" provides the major focus for this title.
Excellent and thorough review of the latest findings in cosmology, including recent observations on the cosmic background radiation.
An overview of the implications of the cosmic background variations for cosmology. Written from the standpoint of one of the leading researchers in the field.
