Mathematical Problems Of Radiative Equilibrium
by Eberhard Hopf
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1934
Number of pages: 123
Schwarzschild's classical work on absorption and diffusion in the sun's atmosphere, and the continuation of these investigations through A. Eddington, J.H. Jeans, R.A. Milne and others, have rendered the theory of radiative equilibrium a definite chapter of mathematical astrophysics. Besides the known results (theory of Milne's standard model, infinitely deep slab with no radiation incident on its surface) the reader will also find more or less detailed discussions of other models.

This book describes the methods and results of modern astrophysical phenomenology and modelling for advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students. It is meant to be explanatory and expository, rather than complete or definitive.

These are the notes for an introductory graduate course. They are meant to be a 'primer' for students embarking on a Ph.D. in astronomy. The level is somewhat shallower than standard textbook courses, but quite a broad range of material is covered.

The modern approach to quantum cosmology, as initiated by Hartle and Hawking, Linde, Vilenkin and others. We explain how one determines the consequences for the late universe of a given quantum theory of cosmological initial or boundary conditions.

These lectures on non-baryonic dark matter discuss the need for non-baryonic dark matter in light of recent results, and present some of the most popular candidates for non-baryonic dark matter - neutrinos, axions, neutralinos, etc.
