New Publication by Valerio Faraoni – Cosmic Analogies: How Natural Systems Emulate the Universe New Publication by Valerio Faraoni – Cosmic Analogies: How Natural Systems Emulate the Universe September 9, 2022Research spotlightsDr. Valerio Faraoni of the Department of Physics & Astronomy has authored a new monograph entitled Cosmic Analogies: How Natural Systems Emulate the Universe in August 2022.It is known that we have a century of research in cosmology but far less in earth sciences, and hardly anyone has studied new analogies between natural systems and theoretically possible universes. With that in mind, Dr. Faraoni’s new book comes into being. It ties together disparate fields of science with a lively look at analogies between relativistic cosmology and various physical phenomena, including equilibrium beach profiles, glacial valleys, the shape of glaciers, heating/cooling models, freezing bodies of water, capillary fluids, Omori’s law of earthquake aftershocks, lava flows, and a few mathematical analogies to help better understand natural systems and solve problems.Dr. Faraoni’s new book is available on this website.
