Brilliant text on theoretical astrophysics
on 9 January 2009
This book, if you have the nessecary background, is a fantastic introduction to the study of the universe. This being Basic Classical Mechanics, Algebra, Trigonometry, Calculus. This is a much more theoretical text than most on astrononmy and astrophysics, which is a refreshing change. This book is HUGE, and full to the brim with useful equations, facts, theorems, definitions, lots of worked examples, plenty of problems to challenge you.
