Cosmology and the Evolution of the Universe provides readers with an up-to-date survey of the current scientific understanding of how the universe has evolved in the almost 14 billion years since the Big Bang. Scientifically sound and written with the student in mind, it is an excellent first step for students researching the science of cosmology and a resource for all who wish to know more about the evolution of the universe.

Cosmology and the Evolution of the Universe discusses all areas of what is known about the subject. Topics include: the large-scale structure of the universe; the discovery and importance of cosmic microwave background radiation; and the forces and particles involved in the evolution of the universe. The book even tackles that most provocative of questions: How will the universe end?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The text is very detailed and thorough. In an attempt to describe complicated theories and explanations the author has managed to be both informative and thorough so that most people should be able to understand."



"Written with college students in mind, this reference offers a nonmathematical introduction to cosmology, designed to be accessible to nonspecialists."
