"Alles in Allem ist "An Introduction to Modern Cosmology" also eine gelungene Einführung in die Konzepte der Kosmologie auf einfachem Niveau, eine wunderbare Motivation für beginnende Studenten,..."
Jakob Walcher
Sterne und Weltraum 2/2004 / Wissenschaft Online

"...complete and excellent introduction of cosmology, and at this level it is hard to beat....highly recommended."
Choice, Vol. 41, No. 6, February 2004


An Introduction to Modern Cosmology Third Edition is an accessible account of modern cosmological ideas. The Big Bang Cosmology is explored, looking at its observational successes in explaining the expansion of the Universe, the existence and properties of the cosmic microwave background, and the origin of light elements in the universe. Properties of the very early Universe are also covered, including the motivation for a rapid period of expansion known as cosmological inflation. The third edition brings this established undergraduate textbook up-to-date with the rapidly evolving observational situation.

This fully revised edition of a bestseller takes an approach which is grounded in physics with a logical flow of chapters leading the reader from basic ideas of the expansion described by the Friedman equations to some of the more advanced ideas about the early universe. It also incorporates up-to-date results from the Planck mission, which imaged the anisotropies of the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation over the whole sky. The Advanced Topic sections present subjects with more detailed mathematical approaches to give greater depth to discussions. Student problems with hints for solving them and numerical answers are embedded in the chapters to facilitate the reader’s understanding and learning.

Cosmology is now part of the core in many degree programs. This current, clear and concise introductory text is relevant to a wide range of astronomy programs worldwide and is essential reading for undergraduates and Masters students, as well as anyone starting research in cosmology.

Dr Liddle was my academic tutor at Imperial College, London.
I have every trust that his books is as clear as his tutorials.

4.0 von 5 Sternen clear as crystal 1. August 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is the most clearly written book I have ever read. Liddle has a knack for making difficult concepts easy to comprehend through his use of analogies and vividly accurate descriptions. The cosmological ideas are explained at an intuitive level and have been imprinted on my mind forever. This book is a great introduction for the less mathematically minded though also a great source of information for others. This book book covers a great amount of cosmology the big bang, nucloesynthesis, inflation, cosmological models etc and is set out in a very logical order. I would thoroughly recommend this as an introduction although for those interested in more mathematical rigour other text books may be necessary.
Well done Dr. Liddle ! A great achievement .............

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent introduction 10. August 2002
Von P. A. Cook - Veröffentlicht auf
I came across this book because it was required reading for my cosmology course. The book gives a Newtonian (it only briefly mentions the much more complicated General Relativity equations) overview of the current theories about the universe: its mass, its age, its shape and its ultimate destiny. The text is very readable, equations are explained properly and the diagrams are useful. The reader is left with a good impression of why the currently proposed cosmological models are sensible.
The book puts the case for the hot big bang model, which is by far the most popular cosmological model at this time. There is a chapter on the successes of this model: explanation of the cosmic background radiation, universal expansion, and the relative abundance of elements in the early universe. There follows a chapter on the major problems of this model: how come the background radiation looks the same (to within one part in a hundred thousand) everywhere, even when light hasn't had time to travel between all these regions? How did the universe become structured (into things such as stars) when physics predicts that matter should be homogeneously spread? And why does the universe (seemingly) possess the exact right density (to almost infinitessimal precision) to stay flat, as we see it today? Inflation theory offers some help, but at the same time asks a bigger question: which of the many inflation theories (if any) is right? Liddle doesn't go into much detail on this point, but you get a good introduction into what inflation is and why such an odd theory would be proposed.
I'm making it sound as if the big bang model has more problems than it solves, which I don't think it does (heck, it's the best theory we've got). But the problems are more interesting!
On which subject, there are problems (solvable ones!) at the end of each chapter, with brief solutions at the end of the book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Terrific introduction to cosmology 31. Mai 2005
Von Yang Li - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
That is a very good introduction book to cosmology at an undergraduate level. Although there are not many complicated equations, the physics ideas are very clear. It covers a lot of materials with easy-to-understand languages. The big bang model is the main part, with concise introduction to dark matter/energy, neuclosynthesis, cosmic microwave background, inflation etc. After reading this book, you will have a general idea about most of the concepts in cosmology and about what is going on in modern cosmology. Each chapter is accompanied by some problems, which are good exercise to understand the context. But I think it is a little outdated now, so maybe you should buy the 2nd edition.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A concise and accessible overview. 29. März 2004
Von Andy Gregory - Veröffentlicht auf
This is a highly readable introduction to Cosmology. The author states clearly that the approach is grounded in physics rather than mathematics and indeed, any reader with a basic grasp of single-variable calculus would cope with the derivations that are presented. Its ready accessibility would make it an enjoyable introduction for those working on their own wanting more than a 'popular 'account of Cosmology.I have adapted and used some of the material and problems for my year 13 physics class.
The main body of the book is self-contained and requires no further material for the interested reader to get to grips with the rudiments of the standard cosmological models. More complex results are stated without derivation and some are used as the basis for the exercises. The 'Advanced' topics require a little more of the reader and are presented as brief summaries rather than being rigorous. For example ,the chapter on General Relativistic Cosmology is 'for those readers who have experienced some general relativity'. As a teacher of physics,I found this book to be a very useful addition to my library.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great intro! 2. Juni 2013
Von Lucas Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a book about cosmology, the origin and nature of the universe on the largest scales (nothing as small as a star system). I bought the book without knowing anything about cosmology so I was a little surprised by that. I found the book very accessible as just an engineering grad just by reading the descriptive text and not thinking too hard about some of the complicated equations presented throughout the work. But it is somewhat like a textbook and has great problems you can work through at the end of each chapter if you feel inclined to tackle them and sharpen your understanding. I didn't, I was amazed enough just to learn things like how scientists can theorize about the nature of the universe the tiniest fraction of a second after the big bang, why you can see the the cosmic microwave background (at all) and the earliest times of the universe pointing a telescope in any direction, why it is that galaxies cluster along filaments, what the "observable" universe amounts to, how scientists can infer the existence of non-baryonic dark matter, and other very interesting things I'm sorry to have never been exposed to in school. There are some "Advanced Topics" at the end of the book. Read them like ordinary chapters.

Bottom line is that if any of that sounds interesting to you and you can gain quite a lot just from reading the text and thinking about the relationships between the variables in the equations presented with college student's background or less. If you want to study it more deeply, you can do that too!
