Hawley J.E., Holcomb K.A. Foundations of Modern Cosmology
2nd ed. Oxford University Press. 2005. 554 p.

Недавние открытия в астрономии, особенно сделанные с данными, собранными спутниками, такими как Космический телескоп Хабблa и WMAP (прим.: WMAP – космический зонд НАСА для изучения реликтового излучения), реконструировали науку о космологии. Эти новые наблюдения дают возможность того, что на некоторые давние тайны космологии может быть найден ответ, включая такие фундаментальные вопросы, как конечная судьба вселенной.
В книге присутствует набросок исторического основания космологии, предоставляется обзор соответствующих разделов физики и астрономии. После этого, перед началом всестороннего обсуждения теории Большого взрыва и физики ранней вселенной, рассматривается специальная и общая теории относительности. В книге освещаются современные области исследования, включая темную материю и структурное формирование, темную энергию, инфляционную вселенную и квантовую космологию.
Recent discoveries in astronomy, especially those made with data collected by satellites such as the Hubble Space Telescope and the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe, have revolutionized the science of cosmology. These new observations offer the possibility that some long-standing mysteries in cosmology might be answered, including such fundamental questions as the ultimate fate of the universe.
Foundations of mode cosmology provides an accessible, thorough and descriptive introduction to the physical basis for mode cosmological theory, from the big bang to a distant future dominated by dark energy. This second edition includes the latest observational results and provides the detailed background material necessary to understand their implications, with a focus on the specific model supported by these observations, the concordance model. Consistent with the book's title, emphasis is given to the scientific framework for cosmology, particularly the basics concepts of physics that underlie mode theories of relativity and cosmology; the importance of data and observations is stressed throughout. The book sketches the historical background of cosmology, and provides a review of the relevant basic physics and astronomy. After this introduction, both special and general relativity are treated, before proceeding to an in-depth discussion of the big bang theory and physics of the early universe. The book includes current research areas, including dark matter and structure formation, dark energy, the inflationary universe, and quantum cosmology.

Wiley-Praxis Series in astronomy and astrophysics, John Wiley & Sons, 1997, - 205 pages. Cosmology is the study of the Universe as a whole. The currently accepted framework of how the Universe began and subsequently evolved is a collection of interrelated theories known generically as the Big Bang. It is this collection of the theories which we will be presenting in this book.

Springer, 2007, 428 pages Some 25 years after the birth of inflationary cosmology this volume sets out to provide a both authoritative and pedagogical introduction and review of the state of the field. Cosmic inflation corresponds to an episode of accelerated expansion of the very early universe and solves nicely a collection of puzzles that had plagued standard cosmology so far. Different scenarios exist, though, and the reader will learn abou...
