Summary If standard gravitational theory is correct, then most of the matterin the universe is in an unidentified form which does not emit enoughlight to have been detected by current instrumentation. This book isthe second editon of the lectures given at the 4th Jerusalem WinterSchool for Theoretical Physics, with new material added. The lecturesare devoted to the "missing matter" problem in the universe, thesearch to understand dark matter. The goal of this volume is to makecurrent research work on unseen matter accessible to students withoutprior experience in this area and to provide insights for.
Contents Introduction -- Distribution of dark matter in the spiral galaxy NGC 3198 -- Some possible regularities in missing mass -- Evolution of globular clusters and the globular cluster system-I -- Positive energy perturbations in cosmology-II -- Dark matter in galaxies and galaxy systems -- Gravitational lenses -- An introduction to inflation -- Wimps in the Sun and in the lab -- An introduction to cosmic strings -- A departure from Newtonian dynamics at low accelerations as an explanation of the mass-discrepancy in galactic systems -- Dark matter in cosmology.
