The arrows of time a debate in cosmology by Laura Mersini-Houghton ( )

The concept of time has fascinated humanity throughout recorded history, and it remains one of the biggest mysteries in science and philosophy. Time is clearly one of the fundamental building blocks of the universe and thus a deeper understanding of nature at a fundamental level also demands a comprehension of time. Furthermore, the origins of the universe are closely intertwined with the puzzle of time: Did time emerge at the Big Bang? Why does the arrow of time 'conspire' with the order of the initial state of the universe? This book addresses many of the most important questions about time:

Gravitational Radiation in fR Gravity A Geometric Approach by Adam Scott Kelleher ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
I summarize experimental and theoretical constraints on gravity theories. I explore metric fR gravity, and explore scalar field theory analogs. I present a different kind of mechanism to raise the effective scalar mass in fR gravity in environments with particular ranges of background scalar curvatures, and thus suppress scalar effects on solar system curvature scales, while allowing scalar effects at different curvature scales. I review the post-Newtonian and post-Minkowskian mathematical machinery for General Relativity, and generalize these expansions to metric fR gravity up to second order in small parameters
