Vacuum energy (dark energy) and inflation is
the subject of our four papers to be published
The Physics Teacher
magazine this fall. We
are modifying the Physics2000 textbook to
include this material in the new Physics2013
introductory text. We are doing this by
including an optional astronomy section to
provide a background for the new cosmology
equivalent to the historical background that
textbooks provide for Newtonian mechanics.
Our workshop will be on the new structure
for the Physics2013 text.
