This controversial book examines one of the most fundamental questions of modern cosmology: how much matter is there in the Universe? This issue affects theories of the origin and evolution of the Universe as well as its geometrical structure and ultimate fate. The authors address this debate and point out the most likely avenues for determining the actual density of Universe matter in both visible and invisible forms by pulling together evidence from all available sources. They conclude that the balance of arguments presently lies with a density of around twenty percent of the critical density required for the Universe to ultimately recollapse. Written by two eminent cosmologists, this topical and provocative book will be essential reading for all cosmologists and astrophysicists.

Book Description:

This controversial book examines one of the most fundamental questions of modern cosmology: how much matter is there in the Universe? The authors discuss all the relevant cosmological and astrophysical evidence. They present a 'state-of-the-art' analysis of the observational and theoretical arguments surrounding the existence of dark matter, primordial nucleosynthesis, large-scale structure formation and the cosmic microwave background radiation. In this way, they provide an indispensable introduction to the most exciting recent developments in modern cosmology.Written by two eminent cosmologists, this topical and provocative book will be essential reading for all cosmologists and astrophysicists.

Review:

"Is the Universe Open or Closed? is a learned and informative work, lucidly written by two prominent cosmologists....After reading Coles and Ellis's book I am left with the feeling that I don't want to read another book debating whether the universe is open or closed-not until the end of the twenty-first century; then I might believe the answer." Book Reviews

"Is the Universe Open or Closed?: The Density of Matter in the Universe figures to be an invaluable reference for current research involving the value of W. Coles and Ellis' thoughtful and thorough analysis will undoubtedly contribute to understanding the curvature of space, and ultimately the fate of the universe." Dimitri Veras, Yale Scientific Magazine
