Modern Cosmology begins with an introduction to the smooth, homogeneous universe described by a Friedman-Robertson-Walker metric, including careful treatments of dark energy, big bang nucleosynthesis, recombination, and dark matter. From this starting point, the reader is introduced to perturbations about an FRW universe: These consequences include the anisotropy spectrum of the cosmic microwave background CMB featuring acoustic peaks and polarization, the matter power spectrum with baryonic wiggles, and their detection via photometric galaxy dodelsom, redshift distortions, cluster abundances, and weak lensing.

Jan 20, Erickson rated it really liked it Shelves: The book, as promised by the author, is quite comprehensive. It covers essentially all topics of cosmology at basic level, and at level accessible to most students well-versed in their undergraduate courses. For example, while general relativity is expected, he did go through a VERY USEFUL crash course on how to perform explicit computations using tensor analysis and Christoffel symbols for various observables.

The book has a lot of explicit calculations which I have yet done, but browsed through to guide. On first reading I don’t quite get most of it especially the bigger picturebut Dodelson did attempt to provide interpretations which are helpful.
At any rate, useful beginning for a taste of cosmology for undergraduates and beginning graduates.
A minor issue is that it has a lot of errors and readers are asked to refer to the errata online.
