The third edition brings this established undergraduate textbook lidfle with the rapidly evolving observational situation.
An Introduction to Modern Cosmology
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.

Feb 09, Eppursimuov3 rated it really liked it. He arrives at the famous Friedmann equation through Newtonian physics rather than the standard relativistic approach we still end up with the same equation.
Through the solutions of this equation, Liddle explores subjects such as the curvature of space, the cosmological constant, the density parameter, the age of the Universe, nucleosynthesis, and inflationary big bang models.
May 13, Erin rated it really liked it Shelves: I thought this was a great undergrad cosmology book. The sections are short liedle sweet, while still explaining the difficult concepts in a way that makes sense.
Good intro to cosmology at the undergrad level. Read it from cover to cover.
