Zeldovich's legacy in the Discovery and Understanding of the Cosmic Web
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 12 October 2016
Modeling and understanding the structure of the universe is one the most interesting problems in modern cosmology. It is also an extremely difficult problem. Despite spectacular achievements in observations and computational capabilities at present there is no comprehensive theory of the structure formation. There are successful theoretical models however most of them rely on assumptions and various fits which are not fully physically justified. The Zeldovich Approximation is a rare exception. Suggested more than forty years ago it remains one of the most successful and profound analytic models of structure formation. Some of results stemmed from the Zeldovich Approximation will be briefly reviewed.
