Product description

Review

"The book is beautifully produced and illustrated, and notable for the care that has gone into the choice of appropriate and unusual illustrations. Recommended." ( SSR, December 2009)

"This is an up–to–date, well–written, first–year undergraduate textbook ... .Many people will enjoy reading it." (The Observatory Magazine, August 2009)

"A very well thought–out book that lucidly covers a comprehensive range of topics in an attractive format ... .Bang up–to–date, and all cut up into convenient, self–contained sections that can be read in a dip–in, dip–out sort of way." (Astronomy Now, January 2009)

Synopsis

"Introduction to Astronomy and Cosmology" is a modern undergraduate textbook, combining both the theory behind astronomy with the very latest developments. Written for science students, this book takes a carefully developed scientific approach to this dynamic subject. Every major concept is accompanied by a worked example with end of chapter problems to improve understanding. It includes coverage of the very latest developments such as double pulsars and the dark galaxy. It is beautifully illustrated in full colour throughout. It also provides a supplementary web site with many additional full colour images, content, and latest developments.
