Can displace ordinary matter and dark matter

Particle astrophysics


In recent years a new research area in physics has emerged, particle astrophysics. More and more astrophysicists and cosmologists recognized that particle physics is a helpful tool for understanding the origin and development of our universe. On the other hand, the particle physicists came to the realization that energies are available in astrophysics and processes can be studied which accelerators will not be able to investigate in the foreseeable future. In this way one approaches from two sides in order to jointly get a grip on some of the fundamental problems of modern physics. The book - which emerged from seminars at the University of Heidelberg - is aimed at mid-term physics students, but also at readers who are generally interested in current issues in modern physics, especially the connections between the macrocosm and the microcosm. "... The book presents the secured knowledge in a compact and understandable way, but also gives an insight into the variety of open questions. It tries to address a broad group of interested parties, but requires well-founded physical knowledge." J.V. Feitzinger. Journal for Mathematics, Berlin "...
