How might the anthropological study of cosmologies – the ways in which the horizons of human worlds are imagined and engaged – illuminate understandings of the contemporary world? This book addresses this question by bringing together anthropologists whose research is informed by a concern with cosmological dimensions of social life in different ethnographic settings. Its overall aim is to reaffirm the value of the cosmological frame as a continuing source of analytical insight. Attending to the novel cosmological formations that emerge in such fields as modern markets, political landscapes, digital media and popular cinema, the book’s key task is to explore how modern circumstances are constituted within the variable imagination of worlds and their horizons. It will be of interest to all students and researchers in anthropology, as well as scholars in fields as diverse as film studies, cultural studies, comparative religion, science and technology studies, and broader social theory.

This thesis explores the idea that the Higgs boson of the Standard Model and the cosmological inflation are just two manifestations of one and the same scalar field - the Higgs-inflation. By this unification two energy scales that are separated by many orders of magnitude are connected, thereby building a bridge between particle physics and cosmology. An essential ingredient for making this model consistent with observational data is a strong non-minimal coupling to gravity. Predictions for the value of the Higgs mass as well as for cosmological parameters are derived, and can be tested by future experiments. The results become especially exciting in the light of the recently announced discovery of the Higgs boson. The model of non-minimal Higgs inflation is also used in a quantum cosmological context to predict initial conditions for inflation. These results can in turn be tested by the detection of primordial gravitational waves. The presentation includes all introductory material about cosmology and the Standard Model that is essential for the further understanding. It also provides an introduction to the mathematical methods used to calculate the effective action by heat kernel methods.

Introduction to Cosmology Second Edition Matts Roos University of Helsinki, Finland This second edition of the very successful Introduction to Cosmology provides an authoritative yet concise study of cosmology at an introductory level. Beginning with elementary aspects, it will lead students on to some of the most advanced concepts, including relativity, cosmic inflation, phase transitions and galaxy formation. Fully illustrated and comprehensively referenced with problems at the end of each chapter, Introduction to Cosmology, Second Edition offers the following new features: * Thorough examination of the Hubble parameter and the age of the Universe with reference to measurement techniques * Completely new section on gravitational lenses and other tests of general relativity * Expanded sections on dark matter, black holes and cosmic microwave background Praise for the First Edition 'Introduction to Cosmology is first class.Even more students will want to become cosmologists with a book like this.Roos has got it right' -New Scientist 'It is rare to find an elementary discussion of such findings, and the book should prove a useful addition to more astronomically oriented introductory discussions of cosmology.Roos's text serves a useful niche in the undergraduate market'-Physics Today 'It is well recommended for undergraduates of physics or astrophysics'-Popular Astronomy

The Gamow Memorial International Conference was held in Odessa, Ukraine in August 2004. The conference was dedicated to 100th anniversary of George Gamow, one of the most prominent scientists of the twentieth century. His major scientific achievements include the development of the alpha and beta decay theory and the Big Bang theory of the expanding universe. The conference covered key topics including cosmology and gravitation; large-scale structure of the universe; gravitational lenses in the universe. This volume provides a useful source of reference for graduates and researchers in astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology.

Did the universe originate from a "big bang" as argued by leading astrophysicists and others? Or does some other theory more accurately describe its beginnings? Are there other forms of life in the universe? What about other universes? This volume discusses these and other topics in this hotly debated area where philosophy and science meet.

In the recent years, particle physics and cosmology have got ever closer together. Most of the new theoretical developments in the quest to describe the universe at the most fundamental level are based on string theory. The PASCOS-07 symposium gave a comprehensive review of the status, recent developments, and future prospects of these fields.
