Non-Local Astrophysics: Dark Matter, Dark Energy and Physical Vacuum highlights the most significant features of non-local theory, a highly effective tool for solving many physical problems in areas where classical local theory runs into difficulties. The book provides the fundamental science behind new non-local astrophysics, discussing non-local kinetic and generalized hydrodynamic equations, non-local parameters in several physical systems, dark matter, dark energy, black holes and gravitational waves.

Key Features

  • Devoted to the solution of astrophysical problems from the position of non-local physics
  • Provides a solution for dark matter and dark energy
  • Discusses cosmological aspects of the theory of non-local physics
  • Includes a solution for the problem of the Hubble Universe expansion, and of the dependence of the orbital velocity from the center of gravity


Researchers, scientists and graduate students in theoretical and applied physics, astrophysics, astronomy, and cosmology

    Book to read by everyone who deals with space or astrophysics

    This book can be read independently of previous three book published by the author. It describes basics of the developed by the author theory, the generalized Boltzmann equation, and then it focuses on several key problems of astrophysics, like dark matter, birth of the universe and dark energy, big bang and physical vacuum, and others. It is shown, for example, that dark matter concept, introduced by Vera Rubin to mathematically describe the astronomical observations of star movements in galactic disks, can be dismissed as it is not needed. The developed theory accurately describes all that without dark matter. The mathematical equations are complicated, but complete for a scientist to work on application of the theory. One can skip the equations, if only understanding of the concept and new results are of interest. The range of applications provided in a book is wide. E.g. the EM-Drive experiments obtained the theoretical foundation, based on physical vacuum equations. Recommended to everyone who deals with space or astrophysics: students, professors, engineers and scientists.
