Most widely held works by Ugo Moschella
Modern cosmology by S Bonometto( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cosmology is a new science, but cosmological questions are as old as mankind. Turning philosophical and metaphysical problems into problems that physics can treat, and hopefully solve, has been the main achievement of the 20th century
Geometry and physics of branes by U Bruzzo( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a review of several aspects of branes. It includes five contributions by leading scientists in the field: a general introduction to branes in string theory and four more specialised topics, ranging from the mathematical aspects related to homological mirror symmetry to more physical issues on string tachyon dynamics, two-dimensional conformal field theory and large N dualities
Rigorous quantum field theory : a Festschrift for Jacques Bros by Anne Boutet de Monvel-Berthier( )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jacques Bros has greatly advanced our present understanding of rigorous quantum field theory through numerous fundamental contributions. This book arose from an international symposium held in honour of Jacques Bros on the occasion of his 70th birthday, at the Department of Theoretical Physics of the CEA in Saclay, France. The impact of the work of Jacques Bros is evident in several articles in this book. Quantum fields are regarded as genuine mathematical objects, whose various properties and relevant physical interpretations must be studied in a well-defined mathematical framework. The key topics in this volume include analytic structures of Quantum Field Theory (QFT), renormalization group methods, gauge QFT, stability properties and extension of the axiomatic framework, QFT on models of curved spacetimes, QFT on noncommutative Minkowski spacetime.

Dark matter and dark energy : a challenge for modern cosmology by Sabino Matarrese( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together reviews from leading international authorities on the developments in the study of dark matter and dark energy, as seen from both their cosmological and particle physics side. Studying the physical and astrophysical properties of the dark components of our Universe is a crucial step towards the ultimate goal of unveiling their nature. The work developed from a doctoral school sponsored by the Italian Society of General Relativity and Gravitation. The book starts with a concise introduction to the standard cosmological model, as well as with a presentation of the theory of linear perturbations around a homogeneous and isotropic background. It covers the particle physics and cosmological aspects of dark matter and (dynamical) dark energy, including a discussion of how modified theories of gravity could provide a possible candidate for dark energy. A detailed presentation is also given of the possible ways of testing the theory in terms of cosmic microwave background, galaxy redshift surveys and weak gravitational lensing observations. Included is a chapter reviewing extensively the direct and indirect methods of detection of the hypothetical dark matter particles. Also included is a self-contained introduction to the techniques and most important results of numerical (e.g. N-body) simulations in cosmology. This volume will be useful to researchers, PhD and graduate students in Astrophysics, Cosmology Physics and Mathematics, who are interested in cosmology, dark matter and dark energy
Physics of relativistic objects in compact binaries : from birth to coalescence by Monica Colpi( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents a review of the astrophysical approach to the investigation of gravity theories. This book focuses on strong-field tests of general relativity and alternative theories of gravity, performed using collapsed objects (neutron stars, black holes and white dwarfs) in relativistic binaries as laboratories
Gravitational waves by Ignazio Ciufolini( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work provides a review of gravitational waves - a subject that promises to play a central role in astrophysics, cosmology and theoretical physics. A range of contributions from leading scientists are included
Joint evolution of black holes and galaxies by Monica Colpi( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Relics of extraordinary energentic events that occurred when the universe was younger, black holes influence the environment which they inhabit & their masses link tightly with properties of their hosting galaxy. This book focuses on observational & theoretical aspects of the research in this field

Analogue gravity phenomenology : analogue spacetimes and horizons from theory to experiment by Daniele Faccio( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analogue Gravity Phenomenology is a collection of contributions that cover a vast range of areas in physics, ranging from surface wave propagation in fluids to nonlinear optics. The underlying common aspect of all these topics, and hence the main focus and perspective from which they are explained here, is the attempt to develop analogue models for gravitational systems. The original and main motivation of the field is the verification and study of Hawking radiation from a horizon: the enabling feature is the possibility to generate horizons in the laboratory with a wide range of physical systems that involve a flow of one kind or another. The years around 2010 and onwards witnessed a sudden surge of experimental activity in this expanding field of research. However, building an expertise in analogue gravity requires the researcher to be equipped with a rather broad range of knowledge and interests. The aim of this book is to bring the reader up to date with the latest developments and provide the basic background required in order to appreciate the goals, difficulties and success stories in the field of analogue gravity. Each chapter of the book treats a different topic explained in detail by the major experts for each specific discipline. The first chapters give an overview of black hole spacetimes and Hawking radiation before moving on to describe the large variety of analogue spacetimes that have been proposed and are currently under investigation. This introductory part is then followed by an in-depth description of what are currently the three most promising analogue spacetime settings, namely surface waves in flowing fluids, acoustic oscillations in Bose-Einstein condensates and electromagnetic waves in nonlinear optics. Both theory and experimental endeavours are explained in detail. The final chapters refer to other aspects of analogue gravity beyond the study of Hawking radiation, such as Lorentz invariance violations and Brownian motion in curved spacetimes, before concluding with a return to the origins of the field and a description of the available observational evidence for horizons in astrophysical black holes
