Endless universe : beyond the Big Bang by Paul J Steinhardt ( Book )
14 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 1,547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Big Bang theory--the leading explanation for the origin of the universe--posits that space and time sprang into being about 14 billion years ago in a hot, expanding fireball of nearly infinite density. Over the last three decades, the theory has repeatedly had to be revised to address such issues as how galaxies and stars first formed and why the expansion of the universe is speeding up--let alone what caused the Big Bang in the first place. This book presents a bold new cosmology: Steinhardt and Turok recount remarkable developments in astronomy, particle physics, and superstring theory that together form the basis of their groundbreaking "Cyclic Universe" theory. According to this picture, the Big Bang was not the beginning of time, but the bridge to a past filled with endlessly repeating cycles, each accompanied by the creation of new matter and the formation of new galaxies, stars, and planets.--From publisher description
The universe within : from quantum to cosmos by Neil Turok ( Book )
14 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Turok explores the transformative scientific discovers of the past three centuries, from classical mechanics to the nature of light and the evolution of the cosmos, and shows how they created shifts in the organization of society. He argues that we are on the cusp of another major transformation: the coming quantum revolution that will supplant our current digital age

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Argues that the so-called Big Bang was part of an infinite cycle of colossal collisions between our known universe and a parallel world, drawing on developments in astronomy, particle physics, and superstring theory to illuminate the Cyclic Universe theory

An Answer to everything ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Program 6: We now know that the universe had a beginning and how all the matter formed but there is still one outstanding question: how did the Big Bang begin? Stephen Hawking is joined by other leading scientists as they try to answer this question. Includes discussions of inflation theory, quantum mechanics, and string theory
Structure Formation in the Universe Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute on Structure Formation in the Universe Cambridge, U.K. 26 July - 6 August 1999 by Robert G Crittenden ( )

Universo senza fine : oltre il big bang by Paul J Steinhardt ( Book )

Beyond the big bang by Paul J Steinhardt ( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Why is the distribution of matter and radiation in the universe so uniform? Why is space flat rather than curved, as Einstein's theory of general relativity suggests? To resolve these issues, the authors propose a very different model of the universe. They argue that it is without beginning or end, truly an Endless Universe
Endless universe : rewriting cosmic history by Neil Turok ( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This text presents a radical new theory of the origins and future of the universe. The authors argue that the universe is without beginning or end, truly an endless universe and that there is a continual cycle of expansion and contraction as parallel universes (or 'branes') collide

Polarization of the microwave background in defect models by Uroš Seljak ( )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We compute the polarization power spectra for global strings, monopoles, textures, and nontopological textures, and compare them to inflationary models. We find that topological defect models predict a significant ([in relation]1 [mu]K) contribution to magnetic type polarization on degree angular scales, which is produced by the large vector component of the defect source. We also investigate the effect of decoherence on polarization. It leads to a smoothing of acoustic oscillations both in temperature and polarization power spectra and strongly suppresses the cross correlation between temperature and polarization relative to inflationary models. Both effects should be testable with the next generation of CMB satellites
Power spectra in global defect theories of cosmic structure formation by Ue-Li Pen ( )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An efficient technique for computing perturbation power spectra in field ordering theories of cosmic structure formation is introduced, enabling computations to be carried out with unprecedented precision. Microwave anisotropy and matter perturbation power spectra for global strings, monopoles, textures, and nontopological textures are presented and compared with recent observations. The most striking results are (a) the absence of pronounced peaks in the C[sub]l anisotropy power spectrum and (b) the lack of large scale power in the matter power spectrum

Scalar, vector, and tensor contributions to CMB anisotropies from cosmic defects by Neil Turok ( )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Recent work has emphasised the importance of vector and tensor contributions to the large scale microwave anisotropy fluctuations produced by cosmic defects. In this paper we provide a general discussion of these contributions, and how their magnitude is constrained by the fundamental assumptions of causality, scaling, and statistical isotropy. We discuss an analytic model which illustrates and explains how the ratios of isotropic and anisotropic scalar, vector and tensor stress-energy sources are determined. This provides a check of the results from large scale numerical simulations, confirming the numerical finding that vector and tensor modes provide substancial contributions to the large angle anisotropies. We show that the qualitative features of the stress-energy tensor carry over to the microwave background anisotropies. This leads to a suppression of the scalar normalization and consequently of the Doppler peaks
