'A monumental book written by a leading authority in particle physics and cosmology. Since publication of Weinberg's famous book "Gravitation and Cosmology" 35 years ago, there has been a real revolution both in cosmological theory and observations. A major effort of a great expert has been required to summarize the main developments in one book, and to make this presentation both highly accurate and accessible. This book will be greatly appreciated by a broad readership, ranging from students who just enter the field to experts in modern cosmology. It should be on the desk of every actively working cosmologist.'

- Andrei Linde, Stanford University


'Time is right for a survey of the physics of what has become a large and well-developed subject. Weinberg has done it, in an impressive fashion. He presents a full and careful assess­ment of the broad range of physics of modern cosmology, from the tools for measurements of the structure and evolution of the universe we see around us to the puzzles of dark matter and dark energy and the ideas about what the universe was like in the remote past, before it could have been described by the well-tested part of the theory.'  

- Jim Peebles, Princeton University


'This book tackles the main events of today's cosmology: cosmic acceleration observed with supernovae, the exquisite structure of the cosmic microwave background, and the evidence for dark matter. Weinberg pays close attention to the historical development and summarizes the observations with care. He brings deep knowledge of the underlying physics and weaves these threads together into a rich text that will be of great value to astronomers and physicists. Everyone who works on cosmology will find something to learn in this book.'

- Robert P. Kirshner, Harvard University


'The beauty of Weinberg's approach lies in his thoroughness. The literature in cosmology is sprawling, and for many topics within cosmology it is very hard to find a self-contained account. Weinberg has set out to bring it all together, from the basics of Friedmann-Robertson-Walker cosmology to modern inflation. All the important topics in modern cosmology are discussed. Weinberg's goal is to explain each of these topics from the ground up, never settling for vague arguments or for incomplete summaries of results from other sources. The next time I teach graduate-level cosmology I will certainly use this book, and I look forward to the opportunity.'                                                      

- Alan Guth, Massachusetts Institute of Technology


'Weinberg's unique talents fill an important gap in the scientific literature by providing another thorough, rigorous, and yet very enjoyable and easy-to-read textbook that is bound to become another classic. Weinberg's gigantic effort in organizing and presenting a huge body of experimental and theoretical achievements in this rapidly growing field is a great contribution to the astroparticle community and to fundamental science—from the beginning graduate student to the most advanced practitioner.'                                                   

- Gabriele Veneziano, CERN, Geneva




От вътрешната страна на обложката:


This book is unique in the detailed, self-contained, and comprehensive treatment that it gives to the ideas and formulas that are used and tested in modern cosmological research. It divides into two parts, each of which provides enough material for a one-semester graduate course. The first part deals chiefly with the isotropic and homogeneous average universe; the second part concentrates on the departures from the average universe. Through­out the book the author presents detailed analytic calculations of cosmological phenomena, rather than just report results obtained elsewhere by numerical computation. The book is up to date, and gives detailed accounts of topics such as recombination, microwave background polar­ization, leptogenesis, gravitational lensing, structure formation, and multifield inflation, that are often treated superficially if at all in treatises on cosmology. Copious references to current research literature are supplied. Appendices include a brief introduction to general relativity, and a detailed derivation of the Boltzmann equation for photons and neutrinos used in calculations of cosmological evolution. Also provided is an assortment of problems.


Steven Weinberg is a member of the Physics and Astronomy Departments of the University of Texas at Austin. His research has been honored with the Nobel Prize in Physics and the National Medal of Science, and election to the US National Academy of Sciences, Britain's Royal Society, the Royal Irish Academy, the American Philosophical Society and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. The American Philosophical Society awarded him the Benjamin Franklin Medal, with a citation that said he is "considered by many to be the preeminent theoretical physicist alive in the world today." His books include the three volume treatise, The Quantum Theory of Fields. Educated at Cornell, Copenhagen, and Princeton, he also holds honorary doctoral degrees from sixteen other universities. He taught at Columbia, Berkeley, M.I.T., and Harvard, where he was Higgins Professor of Physics, before coming to Texas in 1982.
