Korte beschrijving:
This volume discusses the evidence that there may be much more matter in the universe than is immediately visible. This hidden matter is only apparent because of the gravitational influence it exerts on other bodies in the universe. The present evidence suggests that much of this hidden matter may be in the form of exotic elementary particles. The book discusses the influence these particles may exert, and how they might be detected. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
This book presents and discusses the evidence that there may be much more matter in the Universe than is immediately visible. This hidden matter is only apparent because of the gravitational influence it exerts on other bodies in the Universe. Contains an excellent and very readable presentation of the main topics in modern cosmology and the nature of hidden matter in the Universe. It is written for the mathematically literate non-specialist at a level that undergraduates and even secondary students can understand, provided they are familiar with elementary algebra and calculus.
