Written by an award-winning cosmologist, this brand new textbook provides advanced undergraduate and graduate students with coverage of the very latest developments in the observational science of cosmology. The book is separated into three parts; part I covers particle physics and general relativity, part II explores an account of the known history of the universe, and part III studies inflation. Full treatment of the origin of structure, scalar fields, the cosmic microwave background and the early universe are provided.

Problems are included in the book with solutions provided in a separate solutions manual. More advanced extension material is offered in the Appendix, ensuring the book is fully accessible to students with a wide variety of background experience.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Exploring modern cosmology in depth, from its most basic ideas right up to discussions on cutting-edge research on topics such as inflationary cosmology, Cosmology for Physicists explains the most complex concepts, for example that of the delta N formalism based on the `Separate Universe Assumption', in a simple and understandable manner. This text book is an unprecedented attempt to clearly explain fast-evolving topics in cosmology and is written by one of the most famous cosmologists in the world."
-Dr. Kazunori Kohri, Associate Professor, KEK, Japan
