BOSS employs both galaxies and distant quasars to measure baryon acoustic oscillations (BAO), a signature imprint in the way matter is distributed, resulting from conditions in the early universe.
The astronomers specifically want to study baryon acoustic oscillations --sort of frozen sound wave signatures--as a method for measuring "dark energy' the name they give to the mysterious physical mechanism that is causing the universe to expand (a fact known since the 1920s) at an accelerating rate (which was discovered in 1978).
Baryon Asymmetry Problem (Where Has All the Antimatter Gone?
bring together 15 lectures by scientists from the US, Europe, and Japan who discuss the basic experimental data and future prospects for experiments on neutrino oscillations, neutrino interactions and the measurement of properties, the standard model of particles and their interactions, other models of the solar energy cycle and big-band cosmology, the impact of neutrinos on astrophysical phenomena, and the origins of neutrino masses and possible role in the baryon asymmetry of the universe.
Nowadays, there seems no option but to allow for the effect of strong interactions by introducing the baryon weak and electromagnetic form factors.
Designed for high-intensity hiking, climbing, and skiing in the cold, the insulated, multi-zippered Baryon allows you to create an optimal temperature balance.
The microcosm is populated by particles such as quarks and leptons, possessing indescribable qualities like spin, parity, and baryon number.
For instance, the breaking of TRI in the early stages of the universe might somehow account for the baryon asymmetry (Ryder [1994]).
The problems of reasons for cosmological expansion, the origin of baryon matter and existence in the universe of other non-baryon forms of matter, are discussed.
These constraints complement and strengthen those from other observational probes, such as type Ia supernova (SNIa), gravitational lensing and baryon acoustic oscillations (BAO).

These new measurements were carried out by the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) program of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey-III.
Dr Trotta said he was not an expert on that, but stated that there is a lot of other evidence for missing mass, for example, the observed baryon to photon ratio.
The topics include exotic nuclei with open heavy flavor mesons, baryon anti-decuplet in the chiral quark-soliton model, chiral properties of baryons, exotic cluster structures excited by two neutron transfers, coherent pions from neutrino scattering off nuclei, the present status of microscopic theory for complex nucleus-nucleus interactions, and nuclear and particle physics with ultra-intense lasers.
