CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The last years have seen a symbiosis of the fields of elementary particle
physics and the astrophysics of the early universe. This text presents the
background of the subjects and the latest developments at a level suitable for
final year undergraduates and beginning graduate students. The first chapters
cover the properties and interactions of elementary particles followed by
discussion of the early universe, including inflation, dark matter and dark
energy, and the growth of the galactic structure. The final chapters discuss
cosmic rays and particle physics in the stars. The close relation between
particle interactions and large scale development of the cosmos is a constant
theme in the text, with emphasis on the interplay between experiment and theory.
This book is an enlarged and updated version of the first edition published
five years ago. In a rapidly evolving field, emphasis has of course been placed
on the most recent developments. However, the opportunity has also been taken
