From the Hubble Radius to the Planck Scale' is the precisescope of 55 contributions to a symposium held at UC Berkeley in honorof J-P. Vigier's (Nobel Laureate Louis de Broglie's principalassociate) 80th birthday. The volume has a unique perspective in thatthe chapters, the majority by world-class physicists andastrophysicists, contrast both mainstream conservative approaches andleading edge extended models of fundamental issues in physical theoryand observation. For example in the first of the five parts: "Astrophysics & Cosmology," papers review Bigbang Cosmology alongwith articles calling for exploration of alternatives to a Bigbanguniverse in lieu of recent theoretical and observational developments.This unique perspective continues through the remaining sections onextended EM theory, gravitation, quantum theory, and vacuum dynamicsand space-time; making the book a primary source for graduate leveland professional academics.It is being said that physical science has entered a period ripeningfor another Galilean scope revolution'. "Gravitation andCosmology: " "From the Hubble Radius to the Planck Scale"provides clear insight into developments about to cause this paradigmshift. World-class physicists and astrophysicists present their mostrecent thinking on leading edge theoretical and observational work onfive main categories of physical science.
