Chapters give a brief introduction to general relativity in layman terms, and other chapters describe black holes, galaxies, quasars, and the dynamics of the universe. The chapters on quasars and dynamics of universe are outdated in light of new discoveries in cosmology and astrophysics.

Many modern topics in cosmology are discussed in this book: from inflation, cosmic microwave anisotropy to the "dark energy" that propels an accelerating universe.

Nothing more than a basic and fundamental know-how of physics is required, atleast for the first few chapters.3/5(1). Astrophysics, General Relativity and Cosmology. Cornell has long been a leader in theoretical astrophysics—the modeling of phenomena in our solar system, galaxy, distant galaxies and the early universe.

Inthe late Professor Hans Bethe was awarded the Nobel Prize for his explanation of how stars shine by converting hydrogen to helium. The general theory of relativity and its applications to cosmology requires very deep understanding of mathematics and physics. Keeping this in mind, this self-contained textbook is written which addresses to general relativity and cosmology.

In this book, the attempts have been made to explain mathematicians’ notions in the language of a physicist. Modern cosmology developed along tandem tracks of theory and observation. InAlbert Einstein published his theory of general relativity, which provided a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space and time.

At the time, Einstein believed in a static universe, but found that his original formulation of the theory did not permit it. The text concludes with a chapter offering a sound background in applying the principles of general relativity to cosmology. Numerous exercises advance the theoretical developments of the main text, thus enhancing this volume’s appeal to students of applied mathematics and physics at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.This book combines relativity, astrophysics, and cosmology in a single volume, providing an introduction to each subject that enables students to understand more detailed treatises as .3.

The book is also suitable as a supplemental text: for an astronomy undergraduate course on cosmology, to provide a more detailed discus-sion of GR; for a regular advanced GR and cosmology course, to ease the transition for those graduate students .
