About the Author

Michael Kachelriess is Professor of Physics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim. After receiving his PhD from Ruhr University at Bochum in 1996, he held fellowships at Gran Sasso National Laboratory, the University of Valencia, the Theory Division of CERN, and the Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich. His research focuses on theoretical astroparticle physics, and he has published widely in this field.


This book treats two fields of physics that are usually taught separately quantum field theory (QFT) on one side and cosmology and gravitation on the other in a more unified manner. This volume can serve as a textbook for courses in QFT, astroparticle physics and cosmology, and students interested in working at the interface between these fields can certainly appreciate the uncommon approach used. * CERN Courier *
