The narrow, deep focus of the book allows the reader to study the main topics in careful detail Liddle and Lyth have produced a highly focused, fantastically useful book Their depth of knowledge and expertise provide a rock-solid foundation for this book, which is carefully constructed, well-written, well-organized, and crysta; clear in its presentation The book is ideal for an advanced undergraduate course in cosmology that focuses on inflation and large-scale structure.
In sum, Liddle and Lyth have produced a highly focused, fantastically useful book Inflation and large-scale structure are fast-moving, rapidly developing fields, yet the basics are unlikely to change in the near future. This textbook provides graduate students with a thorough and up-to-date introduction to inflationary cosmology–currently the most promising theory for the origin cosmologicsl structure in the Universe.
Enormous progress has been made in this area in the last few years and this book is inflatuon first to provide a modern and unified overview.
It covers all aspects of the theory and careful compares predictions with the latest observations.

Love it, a must have!!! An excellent overview of the key features of inflationary models. For those readers looking for a serious textbook on cosmological inflation, this is it!
But of course, they should beware that it is fully technical, and has nothing to do with Andrew Liddle’s small book, “An Introduction to Modern Cosmology”. This is the real stuff, written by two experts who were instrumental in the development of the “slow-roll inflation” paradigm, and summing up all the latest developments in modern cosmology. Starting with a small introduction about the hot Big Bang, the authors go on to an in-depth treatment of inflation and its consequences.
The simplest model is then exposed and developed into its extensions, such as the Lambda-CDM model, the currently accepted model of inflationary cosmology. Needless to say, the book offers also a fairly detailed treatment of the CMB and its anisotropies, acoustic oscillations and perturbation theory, and the CMB power spectrum, which cosmolgical the latest tools in cosmological research.
However, those who are looking for a complete inflstion of CMB anisotropies will not find it here. They could turn, for instance, to many articles on arxiv, e. All in all, this book by Liddle and Lyth will probably serve as a textbook on cosmology for the coming ten years. I use this as a supplement for Dodelson.
It is a good book for large scale structures and perturbations theory in cosmology. One person found this helpful. See all 4 reviews. There’s a problem loading this xosmological right now. Learn more about Amazon Prime.
