Emily rated it really liked it Jun 17, Brian rated it really liked it Oct 07, An emphasis is placed on developing the readers’ cosomlogy insight rather than losing them with complex math.
Its clear, lucid writing style, with a wealth of useful everyday analogies, makes it exceptionally engaging. But in general the book is very good as an This was one of the two textbook which I have during my cosmology course in the university. Good to follow for someone who has no phobia for formulas and who is willing to slow down at the quantitative sections rycen understand how the steps are derived.

Ryden gives a very good overview of cosmology status: Cambridge University Press Amazon. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

But in general the book is very good as an introduction but needs a lot of consulting for the suggested reading after each chapter provide and also need the consult a professor so i don’t think it is suitable for self study.

An emphasis is placed on developing the readers’ physical insight rather “Introduction to Cosmology” provides a rare combination of a solid foundation of the core physical concepts of cosmology and the most recent astronomical observations.
I love cosmology and this one in particular is easy to follow. This was one of the two textbook which I have during my cosmology course in the university. The book lacks a lot of illustration in some points likeNeutrino decoupling and CMB fluctuations and also it depends from the early beginning in specific Cosmological model for density contribution Benchmark model which leads me to confuse the result the book got with the result I drive for more easier or illustrative model Single component universe mainly.
Patrick rated it really liked it Jan 10, I looked through it and recognized a lot of familiar ideas in my hour or so run through of it but this would really deserve a thorough treatment of physics study as it also includes exercises as any physics textbook would frankly it was a bit more work than Rysen am willing to put in right now as I am no longer in school.

Dec 23, Ludwig rated it it was amazing Shelves: The book is unique in that it not only includes recent major developments in cosmology, like the cosmological barbaara and accelerating universe, but also anticipates key developments expected in the next few years, such as detailed results on the cosmic microwave background. That is to say, it is about as heavy going as an undergraduate physics textbook.
