Dr. Ned Wright;
Vice Chairman, Department of Astronomy; University of
California, Los Angeles: This site is used as a tutorial for students and
contains a considerable amount of important background information about astronomy and cosmology.
Ned also posts recent important news in the field close to the
beginning of the site. Ned makes himself accessible and is an educators,
educator. The remarkable thing is that he is also very active in field
work, and is respected around the world as an authority on astronomy and
general relativity cosmology. Dr. Stephen Hawking of Cambridge
University often refers in his own work to Ned's pioneering research.


Dr. RM Kiehn;
Professor of Physics Emeritus at the University of
Houston, worked for a number of years at Los Alamos. Dr. Kiehn is an expert
on nuclear fusion, and spent time in the Marshall Islands with the armed
forces of the United States during the 1950's testing thermonuclear weapons. He also
is an expert on stellar fusion, and is very interested in general
relativity. He is a pioneer (since 1964) in the field of Applied Topology
and is interested in continuous topological evolution as the basis for the
arrow of time, and thermodynamic irreversibility. Dr. Kiehn and the author of this site have had a number of interesting exchanges. He is very open yet
analytical...not only a superb teacher, but one of the most respected
scientists in the world. His web site, "Cartans Corner" is filled with
insights into the role Topology plays in our real world...in fact that
is one of his topics!


Dr. Paul J. Steinhardt,
director of the Center for Theoretical Science and professor of physics at Princeton University in Princeton, New Jersey U.S.A. Paul is an outstanding physics teacher and a leader in conceptual cosmology. It has been the authors privilege to have several exchanges with Paul. He is open and very interested in the (quite large!) family of "cyclic universe" cosmological ideas.


Andrew J.S. Hamilton
is a specialist in Schwarzchild geometry at the University of Colorado, in Boulder, Colorado, U.S.A. Andrew is a great teacher with a comprehensive understanding, not only of astronomy, but of the possible geometries of the universe and the history of science. Andrew pointed out to the author of this site that the Schwarzschild "mirror geometry" needed to be slightly modified to include a nonrotating Planck Realm of definite size rather than a point mass at the center of the geometry to complete the author's concept. He graciously took the time to read conceptual portions of the text and was of great assistance.


Dr. David James Johnson
is a man of eclectic interests. He also is a
man of impeccable credentials; a B.S. Degree in Physics and a graduate
degree in Astrophysics. The reader will discover that Dr. Johnson is
very interested in the philosophy of science, religion and metaphysics
as they relate to science. Dr. Johnson was interested in the "Cosmology
Review" project, and he has a good group of links, including
one to Dr. Hawkings site at Cambridge.


Neil Turok
Chair of Mathematical Physics; Center for Mathematical Science; Cambridge University, Cambridge, UK has worked for a number of years with Dr. Steinhardt on cosmological modeling, and is very interested in eternal, cyclic universe cosmologies. Neil has done a great deal to popularize science and scientific ideas. He is an incredible teacher. Born in South Africa in 1958, Neil has been at Cambridge for a number of years now. He is a specialist in relating conceptual ideas with their logical expression in mathematics.


Carsten
Gundlach is a mathematics professor on the faculties of the
Enrico Fermi Institute of the University of Chicago, and the University
of Southampton, Highfield, Southampton UK and is an expert on "black
holes" and "microscopic singularity". The author of this site highly
recommends a careful reading of the posted work: "Critical Phenomina in
Gravitational Collapse" which traces the work of Choptuik, and adds
additional insight.


General Relativity
has such experimental veracity, careful
mathematical searches of its implications are a matter of everyday
concern to the scientists of the world. Readers more advanced in the
field will find (if they have not done so already!) that following the
postings at this address can be an indication of the overall
direction of research in Cosmology and in fields of cosmological
significance.


Topological Atlas:
Readers interested in topology will find "Topological Atlas",
complete with homework help for students to be most interesting. Quite a
bit of good general information about the field is included on the site, and the
visitor is invited to participate, and ask any questions which might be
appropriate to the subject.


Symmetry Magazine
is a publication of the University of Chicago Tevatron Collider, located at Batavia Illinois, U.S.A. This publication is a good source of information on current events in particle physics research, including the Hadron Collider in Europe. The now aging Tevatron Collider discovered matter/antimatter oscillations at the quark level of scale, an important conceptual link in the quasistatic hyperspherical universe model described on this site. This exciting work is continuing to confirm oscillation between matter and antimatter as a fundamental property of all quarks...and to establish that such oscillations are synchronous.


PSIgate (Physical Sciences Information
Gateway) "Led by the PSIgate team at the University of Manchester,
PSIgate is a free online catalogue of high quality Internet resources
in the physical sciences. Resources are selected, catalogued and indexed
by researchers and other specialists in their respective fields."
