Product description


'I like this book a lot. It is written very clearly and organised so well that it is easy to navigate. Both authors are undoubted experts and they handle the material with confidence as well as displaying deep insights and physical understanding.' Peter Coles, The Observatory

'The Primordial Density Perturbation is a welcome addition … [the] presentation is lucid and modern. [Lyth and Liddle's] volume warrants a place on the shelves of all researchers in advanced cosmology …' Physics Today

Book Description

The origin and evolution of the primordial perturbation is key to understanding structure formation in the earliest stages of the Universe. Giving a thorough account of theoretical cosmology and perturbations in the early Universe, this graduate-level textbook describes their observational consequences and how such observations relate to primordial physical processes.
