9780824072131: Encyclopedia of Cosmology: Historical, Philosophical, and Scientific Foundations of Modern Cosmology (Garland Reference Library of the Humanities)

From the megalithic cosmology of Stonehenge to the contemporary theory of cosmic strings, this genuinely authoritative alphabetical reference explores the underpinnings of modern cosmology in substantial scholarly articles that not only survey their subject, but also emphasize how the current understanding has been reached, and speculate about likely further advances. Among the topics are Aristotle's cosmology, cosmic mindsteps, deceleration of the universe, Einstein, grand unified theories, Humason, inflationary universe, Kant, large-scale structure and galaxy formation, multiple universes, Native American cosmologies, quasars, Romantic cosmology, Sakharov, and Theon of Symma. Of particular interest are the entries on steady state theory and the origin of primordial nucleosynthesis, written by the scientists who participated in their creation.
