Advances in Cosmology by Marilena Streit-Bianchi, Paola Catapano, Cristiano Galbiati, Magnani, Enrico (eds.)


On the occasion of the 2023 Dark Matter Day, editors and authors will present their book “Advances in Cosmology” at the newly renovated CERN Library.

“This book outlines the latest research on modern cosmology and related topics from world-class experts. Through it, readers will learn how multi-disciplinary approaches and technologies are used to search the unknown and how we arrived at the knowledge used and assumptions made by cosmologists today. This multi-disciplinary book will appeal to anyone with an interest in the fields of Astronomy, Cosmology or Physics.”

Michel Mayor, Nobel Prize Laureate for Physics in 2019, and Debora Pinna from CMS experiment will be present for the presentation. The event will be moderated by Paola Catapano and will be accompanied by an exhibition of the works of art of Enrico Magnani and followed by Q&A and signing sessions.
