Item description for The Invisible Universe: Dark Matter and Dark Energy (Lecture Notes in Physics) by L. Papantonopoulos...
The nature and essence of Dark Matter and Dark Energy have become the central issue in modern cosmology over the past years as they make up most of the matter and energy content of the known universe. Accordingly, the subject matter is quite naturally tied to other fields such as astroparticle physics, quantum physics and general relativity.
This extensive volume, an outgrowth of a topical and tutorial summer school, has been set up with the aim of constituting an advanced-level, multi-authored textbook which meets the needs of both postgraduate students and young researchers in the fields of modern cosmology and astrophysics.

the case for Dark Matter Jun 16, 2008
The contributors to the book lay out a persuasive case for the existence of Dark Matter. It was first postulated to account for the missing matter in galaxies. The luminous [visible] portions of various galaxies seemed to be insufficient to account for the stability of spiral arms. Since then, other evidence, both observational and theoretical, has been gathered. And summarised here.
Some chapters offer exotic explanations of the nature of Dark Matter and energy. Superstrings on a cosmological scale, perhaps?
For physics students, a good way to see the best current ideas on the subject.
