Doubts on Yajur Veda.

                                  sri:
Dear Bhaktas,

I had come across and article which mentioned that there are "two types"
of Yajur Veda, namely, Krishna Yajur Veda and Shukla Yajur Veda. My
doubts are :

(1) First of all why do the "two types" of Yajur Veda exsits? What are
the origins of both?

(2) I had also read that the Shukla Yajur Veda is authored by
Yagnyavalkiya. Who exactly is Yagnyavalkiya? And how can the Shukla
Yajur Veda be authored when the vedas are said to be "apowrushEyam" (
un-authored)?

adiyEn,

Malolan Cadambi
