Development of the Universe and New Cosmology

  title={Development of the Universe and New Cosmology},
  author={Alexander S. Sakharov and Helmut Hofer},
  journal={arXiv: Astrophysics},
Cosmology is undergoing an explosive period of activity, fueled both by new, accurate astrophysical data and by innovative theoretical developments. Cosmological parameters such as the total density of the Universe and the rate of cosmological expansion are being precisely measured for the rst time, and a consistent standard picture of the Universe is beginning to emerge. Recent developments in cosmology give rise the intriguing possibility that all structures in the Universe, from… 
Numerical approaches to star formation and SuperNovae energy feedback in simulations of galaxy clusters
The goal of this work is to to investigate different numerical approaches and to introduce a new, physically-based sub-grid model for the ISM physics, including a treatment of star formation and Type
Vector-Galileon-Tensor theories of gravity
A detailed study of the cosmological evolution in a particular vector-tensor theory of gravity with a potential and a Galileon-motivated interaction terms is presented. The evolution of vector field
On the origin of macroquantization in astrophysics and celestial motion
Despite the use of Bohr radius formula to predict celestial quantization has led to numerous verified observations, the cosmological origin of this macroquantization remains an open question. In this
Unfolding the Labyrinth: Open Problems in Mathematics, Physics, Astrophysics, and Other Areas of Science
Throughout this book, we discuss some open problems in various branches of science, including mathematics, theoretical physics, astro-physics, geophysics etc. It is of our hope that some of the
From Hilbert to Dilbert: A non-orthodox approach to gravitation, psychosynthesis, economics, cosmology, and other issues
This book took an unconventional theme because we submit an unorthodox theme too. Karl Popper’s epistemology suggests that when the theory is refuted by observation, then it is time to look for a set
Unfolding the Labyrinth: Open Problems in Physics, Mathematics, Astrophysics and Other Areas of Science
The reader will find herein a collection of unsolved problems in mathematics and the physical sciences. Theoretical and experimental domains have each been given consideration. The authors have taken


Particle Physics and Inflationary Cosmology
With the invention of unified theories of strong, weak, electromagnetic and gravitational interactions, elementaryparticle physics has entered a very interesting and unusual stage of its development.
The Case for a positive cosmological Lambda term
Recent observations of Type 1a supernovae indicating an accelerating universe have once more drawn attention to the possible existence, at the present epoch, of a small positive Lambda-term
Observational Evidence from Supernovae for an Accelerating Universe and a Cosmological Constant
We present spectral and photometric observations of 10 Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) in the redshift range 0.16 ≤ z ≤ 0.62. The luminosity distances of these objects are determined by methods that
The first second of the Universe
The history of the Universe after its first second is now tested by high quality observations of light element abundances and temperature anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background. The epoch of
Supernova limits on the cosmic equation of state
We use Type Ia supernovae studied by the High-z Supernova Search Team to constrain the properties of an energy component that may have contributed to accelerating the cosmic expansion. We find that
Cosmological Results from High-z Supernovae
The High-z Supernova Search Team has discovered and observed eight new supernovae in the redshift interval z = 0.3-1.2. These independent observations, analyzed by similar but distinct methods,
Antimatter regions in the baryon-dominated Universe
Quantum fluctuations of a complex, baryonic charged scalar field caused by inflation can generate large domains, which convert later into antimatter regions. As a result the Universe can become
A strong astrophysical constraint on the violation of special relativity by quantum gravity
The observation of 100-MeV synchrotron radiation from the Crab nebula is used to improve the previous limit by a factor of 40 million, ruling out this type of Lorentz violation, and thereby providing an important constraint on theories of quantum gravity.
Origin of the matter-antimatter asymmetry
Although the origin of matter-antimatter asymmetry remains unknown, continuing advances in theory and improved experimental limits have ruled out some scenarios for baryogenesis, for example,
