Kinetic Theory in the Expanding Universe by Jeremy Bernstein

Book Description

This graduate/research level text is a self-contained exposition of the applications of kinetic theory to basic problems in modern cosmology, such as the role of stable and unstable massive neutrinos and the theory of cosmological helium production. There has been rapid development of the theory of the origin and evolution of the universe in recent years, stimulated in large part by new observations and theories in astrophysics and particle physics. This book takes a different approach and studies what can be concluded from the application to cosmological problems of kinetic theory and, in particular, the Boltzmann equation and its solutions. The book begins with a brief survey of the necessary relativity, cosmodynamics, and kinetic theory, before going on to discuss specific problems, such as the role of stable and unstable massive neutrinos, electron-poritron annihilation, and the theory of cosmological helium production. The focus is in obtaining both theoretical understanding and concrete numerical results.

Books By Author Jeremy Bernstein

Nuclear Iran by Jeremy Bernstein Nuclear Iran, Hardback (October 2014)

This succinct book is timely reading for anyone who wishes to understand the maze of science and secrecy at the heart of Iran's nuclear ambitions. Writing for the general reader, Jeremy Bernstein draws on his knowledge as a physicist to elucidate the scientific principles and technical hurdles involved in creating nuclear reactors and bombs.

Palette of Particles by Jeremy Bernstein Palette of Particles, Hardback (March 2013)

Jeremy Bernstein guides readers through high-energy physics from early twentieth-century atomic models to leptons, mesons, quarks, and the newly discovered Higgs boson, drawing them into the excitement of a universe where 80 percent of all matter has never been identified. From molecules to galaxies, the more we discover, the less we seem to know.

Quantum Leaps by Jeremy Bernstein Quantum Leaps, Paperback (May 2011)

Including recollections of encounters with the theory and the people responsible for it, this account ranges from the cross-pollination of quantum mechanics with Marxist ideology and Christian and Buddhist mysticism to its influence on theater, film, and fiction.

Nuclear Weapons by Jeremy Bernstein Nuclear Weapons, Paperback (February 2010)

Nuclear Weapons is designed to give a layperson an understanding of both the history and technology of nuclear weapons.
