In our quest to elucidate the origin of the universe and the formation of
galaxies, particularly that of the Milky Way in which we live, astounding
progress has been made in recent years through observational and theoretical
studies. Not only have gigantic surveys covering a large fraction of the sky
brought statistics enlightening evolutionary paths of galaxies, but powerful
instruments, such as radio interferometers and ground- and space-based optical/
infrared telescopes, have been able to map individual objects with high
sensitivity and spatial resolution.
Modern physics is confronted with a large variety of complex spatial structures;
almost every research group in physics is working with spatial data. Pattern formation
in chemical reactions, mesoscopic phases of complex fluids such as liquid
crystals or microemulsions, fluid structures on planar substrates (well-known
as water droplets on a window glass), or the large-scale distribution of galaxies
in the universe are only a few prominent examples where spatial structures
are relevant for the understanding of physical phenomena....
The twentieth century elevated our understanding of the Universe from its early stages to what it is today and what is to become of it. Cosmology is the weapon that utilizes all the scientific tools that we have created to feel less lost in the immensity of our Universe. The standard model is the theory that explains the best what we observe. Even with all the successes that this theory had, two main questions are still to be answered: What is the nature of dark matter and dark energy? This book attempts to understand these questions while giving some of...

In Westminster Abbey there repose, almost side by side, by no conscious design yet with deep significance,
the mortal remains of Isaac Newton and of Charles Darwin. "'The Origin of Species,'" said Wallace, "will live
as long as the 'Principia' of Newton." Near by are the tombs of Sir John Herschel, Lord Kelvin and Sir Charles
Lyell; and the medallions in memory of Joule, Darwin, Stokes and Adams have been rearranged so as to admit
similar memorials of Lister, Hooker and Alfred Russel Wallace.

A few are found alone, but almost all are grouped in formations termed galactic clusters. These formations should not be confused with stellar clusters, globular clusters of stars that exist within a galaxy.
