Description:
There are fundamental relations between three vast areas of physics: particle physics, cosmology and condensed matter physics. The fundamental links between the first two areas, in other words, between micro-and macro-worlds, have been well established. The main goal of this book is to establish and define the connection of these two fields with condensed matter physics.

by - arXiv
Ekpyrotic and cyclic cosmologies provide theories of the very early and of the very late universe. In these models, the big bang is described as a collision of branes - and thus the big bang is not the beginning of time.

Book cover: Everything You Always Wanted To Know About The Cosmological Constant ProblemEverything You Always Wanted To Know About The Cosmological Constant Problem
by - arXiv
This text discusses the cosmological constant problem at a pedagogical but fully technical level. We review how the vacuum energy can be regularized in flat and curved space-time and how it can be understood in terms of Feynman bubble diagrams.
