speculations on GRB and dark matter Sep 29, 2007
The papers in the book are mostly observational analysis and some instrument design. Important problems like the sources of [large] gamma ray bursts are tackled. Speculations include trying to detect TeV photons during or soon after one of these bursts has been observed.
But sprinkled throughout the book are more ambitious theoretical papers. Turner, for example, looks at the possible distribution of dark matter and dark energy in the universe. He mines the small anisotropy seen in the Cosmic Background Radiation, for possible information. Another paper looks at the early universe and how dark matter might have been born.
Testing such speculations is rather hard, to say the least. But the ideas are very imaginative. The book has this dichotomy. Rather down to earth experimental papers and high theory.
