Dark Matter: An Introduction tackles the rather recent but fast-growing subject of astroparticle physics, encompassing three main areas of fundamental physics: cosmology, particle physics, and astrophysics. Accordingly, the book discusses symmetries, conservation laws, relativity, and cosmological parameters and measurements, as well as the astrophysical behaviors of galaxies and galaxy clusters that indicate the presence of dark matter and the possible nature of dark matter distribution. This succinct yet comprehensive volume:

Addresses all aspects essential to the study of dark matterExplores particle candidates for cold dark matter beyond the theory of the standard model, providing examples of basic extensions and introducing theories such as supersymmetry and extra dimensionsExplains-in simple text and mathematical formulations-calculation of the freeze-out temperature of a dark matter species and its relic densityProvides theoretical background for dark matter scattering off a target, event rate calculation, and dark matter annihilation essential to study direct and indirect detection of dark matter

Complete with a detailed review of the latest dark matter experiments and techniques, Dark Matter: An Introduction is an ideal text for beginning researchers in the field as well as for general readers with an inquisitive mind, as the important topic of astroparticle physics is treated both pedagogically and with deeper insight.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"... well-chosen references. Altogether, the present work is intended for young researchers pursuing a research career in dark matter in particular, or astroparticle physics or cosmology in general. But the book contains also discussions, which are of interest to a more advanced reader interested in astrophysical aspects of dark matter."
-Zentralblatt MATH 1305
