Inflationary Universe by Alan H. Guth

Book Description

This classic Big Bang text neatly describes what happened after the bang. Yet, until recently, particle physicists and cosmologists were stuck on many questions that the Big Bang Theory still couldn't answer, primarily: If matter can neither be created nor destroyed, how could so much matter arise from nothing at all? Alan Guth's Inflationary Universe Theory answers these vexing questions. When NASA's Cosmic Background Explorer satellite measured the non-uniformities of the cosmic background radiation for the first time in 1992, the patterns agreed exquisitely with the theory's predictions.

Books By Author Alan H. Guth

Inflationary Universe by Alan H. Guth Inflationary Universe, Paperback (February 1998)

This is a first-hand account of Alan Guth's theory of the origins of the universe. Regarded as one of the most important contributions to 20th-century science, it states that the big bang was set into motion by hyper-rapid inflation, lasting only a billion-trillion-billionth of a second.

Origins and Extinctions by Alan H. Guth Origins and Extinctions, Paperback (June 1905)

What is the origin of the universe? How did life appear on Earth and why was much of that life destroyed at various times in Earth's history? In this book, four scientists propose answers to these questions, discussing the newest developments in some areas of current research.
