About this book

Axions are peculiar hypothetical particles that could both solve the CP problem of quantum chromodynamics and at the same time account for the dark matter of the universe. Based on a series of lectures by world experts in this field held at CERN (Geneva), this volume provides a pedagogical introduction to the theory, cosmology and astrophysics of these fascinating particles and gives an up-to-date account of the status and prospect of ongoing and planned experimental searches. Learners and practitioners of astroparticle physics will find in this book both a concise introduction and a current reference work to a showcase topic that connects the "inner space" of the elementary particle world with the "outer space" of the universe at large.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The motivation of this book was to provide a starting point for graduate students and senior researchers in the field of axions and axion-like particles. The book gives a broad overview on the theoretical reason of axions and axion-like particles, their implication for cosmology and astrophysics, their role as a well-known dark-matter candidate, and experimental axion searches." (Claudia-Veronika Meister, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1157, 2009)
