www.physicstoday.org on many of the topics in the text; his experience is reflected in the interesting and cohesive perspectives related to the different subjects discussed and in the adaptation of calculations from his own work to new, substantial, and intriguing problems. Each chapter has two short introductions: one to outline its contents and the other to discuss the exercises at the end of the chapter. The introductions are most useful for providing context, and they help the flow of the… 
The Principle of Mediocrity For the 2011
A&G • October 2011 • Vol. 52 5.1 The universe as we know it originated in a great explosion that we call the Big Bang. For nearly a century cosmologists studied the aftermath of this explosion: how
J an 2 00 8 Does God So Love the Multiverse ? ∗
Monotheistic religions such as Judaism and Christianity affirm that God loves all humans and created them in His image. However, we have learned from Darwin that we were not created separately from

Black Swans and Many Worlds are new models to help explain musical structures, and by extension, events in the social environment and in internal human experience. Many Worlds takes its departure
Unification and the Limits of Knowledge
I examine the question of whether it is possible to construct a final theory of Nature in a reductionist sense. Complete unification implicitly assumes total knowledge of physical reality. Can such
The Star-Galaxy Era in Terms of Big History and Universal Evolution
The present article attempts at combining Big History potential with the potential of Evolutionary Studies. It does not only analyze the history of the Cosmos. It studies similarities between
Are There Many Worlds
It is often thought that the existence of other worlds cannot be scientifically verified and therefore should be treated as philosophical speculation. In this article, I describe several methods for
The cosmological model of eternal inflation and the transition from chance to biological evolution in the history of life
TLDR
In this cosmology, an entity as complex as a coupled translation-replication system should be considered a viable breakthrough stage for the onset of biological evolution, and in an infinite universe (multiverse), emergence of highly complex systems by chance is inevitable.
Does God So Love the Multiverse?
Monotheistic religions such as Judaism and Christianity affirm that God loves all humans and created them in His image. However, we have learned from Darwin that we were not created separately from

TLDR
The theory of the inflationary multiverse, combined with the theory of eternal inflation and anthropic considerations, may help to solve many difficult problems of modern physics, including the cosmological constant problem.
Physical vacuum as a system manifesting itself on various scales - from nuclear physics to cosmology
Suggested here is an attempt to resolve on a phenomenological basis the most keenly discussed enigma of the Universe, namely, the essence of its base medium, "dark energy", which is usually
