It explains modern cosmological concepts, such as dark energy, The second edition includes recent observational results, fuller descriptions of special and general relativity, expanded discussions of dark energy, and a new chapter on baryonic matter that makes up stars and galaxies.


Its clear, lucid writing style, with a wealth of useful everyday analogies, makes it exceptionally engaging. The book is designed for advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students and assumes no prior knowledge of general relativity. Ryden gives a very good overview of cosmology status: Want to Read saving….
