Baryonic dark matter by D Lynden-Bell( Book )

14 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The visible universe is a small perturbation on the material universe. Zwicky and Sinclair Smith in the 1930s gave evidence of invisible mass in the Coma and Virgo Clusters of Galaxies. Better optical data has only served to confound their critics and the X-ray data confirms that the gravitational potentials are many times larger than those predicted on the basis of the observed stars. Dynamical analyses of individual galaxies have found that significant extra mass is needed to explain their rotational velocities. On much larger scales, tens of megaparsecs, there is suggestive evidence that there is even more mass per unit luminosity. What is this non-luminous stuff of which the universe is made'? How much of it is there? Need there be only one kind of stuff? There are three basic possi bili ties:- all of it is ordinary (baryonic) matter, all of it is some other kind of (non-baryonic) matter, or some of it is baryonic and some is non-baryonic

Cosmical magnetism by D Lynden-Bell( Book )

22 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With new observations delineating the large-scale magnetic fields in galaxies and renewed interest in the influence of magnetic fields on star formation and on the collimation of jets this book provides a timely review of cosmic magnetohydrodynamics. The book has a broad sweep, from the theory of the Earth's dynamo through the magnetically dominated Solar corona to the magnetic fields of stars, galaxies quasars and the intergalactic plasma. Particular strong points are the magnetic fields of degenerate stars. Both white dwarfs and the fascinating evolution of neutron stars' magnetic fields are discussed in detail. The book is dedicated to Professor Leon Mestel who has seen the subject grow from its early days to its current flowering on the wealth of new observations described here. Stellar winds, cosmic rays, galactic dynamos, active galactic nuclei and black holes provide a wide range for both scientific imagination and precise deduction. Many of the creators of the subjects have contributed to this volume, which is vital reading for astronomy graduate students with magnetic interests as well as plasma physicists. <br/>
