Dec 03, Alex rated it really liked it Shelves: There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Stephen rated it it was amazing Dec 14, This book does a good job building on topics through the chapters to develop in the student both a conceptual and operational understanding of modern cosmology.

Thus far my favourite textbook. Ryden lays down the math and facts, but keeps it colloquial enough to let the physical representation of the mathematics really sink in.

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Emphasis is placed on the links between theoretical concepts of cosmology and the observable properties of the universe, building deeper physical insights in the reader.

This second edition of Introduction to Cosmology is an exciting update of an award-winning textbook. My library Help Advanced Book Search.
