Cosmology is in the midst of a period of revolutionary discovery, propelled by bold ideas from particle physics and by technological advances from gigapixel charge-coupled device cameras to peta-scale computing. The basic features of the universe have now been determined: It is 13.7 billion years old, spatially flat, and expanding at an accelerating rate; it is composed of atoms (4%), exotic dark matter (20%), and dark energy (76%); and there is evidence that galaxies and other structures were… Expand
Particle Dark Matter in the Universe: At the Brink of Discovery?
TLDR
Results from direct searches, the Large Hadron Collider, and the Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope offer promising opportunities within the next decade to find the missing dark matter. Expand
Steady Flow cosmological model
The possibility that the cosmological constant is decaying as the observable universe grows is explored, and we define a cosmological parameter, depending of the vacuum energy and the universeExpand
Dark Matter Direct and Indirect Detection
Cosmological and astrophysical observations show with outstanding evidence that more than 80% of the matter density in the Universe is nonluminous. Attractive candidates for the composition of thisExpand
History of Astroparticle Physics and its Components
TLDR
An outline of the historical events that led to the formation of contemporary astroparticle physics is given and a brief survey of the most important fields that have played a role in the development of astroparticles physics as the authors know it today is given. Expand
Development (and Evolution) of the Universe
I distinguish Nature from the World. I also distinguish development from evolution. Development is progressive change and can be modeled as part of Nature, using a specification hierarchy. I haveExpand

TLDR
DS can be viewed as tradeoffs between enhancing entropy production maximization by way of convective gradient degradation, and the need to maintain DS form, which is what mediates the convective dissipation. Expand
Physical Computation as Dynamics of Form that Glues Everything Together
TLDR
This approach presents a unified view built on two fundamental ontological categories: Information and computation, which presents a suitable basis for incorporating current developments in understanding of biological/cognitive/social systems as generated by complexification of physicochemical processes through self-organization of molecules.

A Hierarchical Framework for Levels of Reality: Understanding Through Representation
Levels of reality reflect one kind of complexity, which can be modeled using a specification hierarchy. Levels emerged during the Big Bang, as physical degrees of freedom became increasingly fixed asExpand
Translational-Rotational Motion of Earth Artificial Satellite (EAS) in Hill's Gravity Field
The method presented below makes it possible to obtain an approximate solution to the problem of translational-rotational motion of proofmass in Hill's gravity field, as explicit functions of time.
Why Toys Shouldn't Work "Like Magic": Children's Technology and the Values of Construction and Control

TLDR
This paper argues for a style of technological toy design that emphasizes construction, mastery, and personal expressiveness for children, and that consequently runs counter to the (arguably ascendant) tradition of toys that work "like magic". Expand

We show that cosmic acceleration can arise due to very tiny corrections to the usual gravitational action of general relativity, of the form ${R}^{\ensuremath{-}n}$ with $ng0.$ This model eliminatesExpand
