内容紹介

This book is unique in the detailed, self-contained, and comprehensive treatment that it gives to the ideas and formulas that are used and tested in modern cosmological research. It divides into two parts, each of which provides enough material for a one-semester graduate course. The first part deals chiefly with the isotropic and homogeneous average universe; the second part concentrates on the departures from the average universe. Throughout the book the author presents detailed analytic calculations of cosmological phenomena, rather than just report results obtained elsewhere by numerical computation. The book is up to date, and gives detailed accounts of topics such as recombination, microwave background polarization, leptogenesis, gravitational lensing, structure formation, and multifield inflation, that are usually treated superficially if at all in treatises on cosmology. Copious references to current research literature are supplied. Appendices include a brief introduction to general relativity, and a detailed derivation of the Boltzmann equation for photons and neutrinos used in calculations of cosmological evolution. Also provided is an assortment of problems.

レビュー

A stimulating source of intellectual excitement. [...] While the relevant technical aspects of the presentation can only be fully appreciated after a careful reading, a clear message emerges with vigour after the first reading: atomic physics, nuclear physics, field theory, high-energy physics and general relativity all come together in the description of our universe. In other words, Cosmology provides a vivid example of the basic unity of physics, which is something to bear in mind during the decades to come. (CERN Courier)

A technical tour de force for the intrepid graduate student, Weinberg's new book will greatly appeal to particle physicists tooling up in cosmology and be an indispensable source for the practitioner. (Physics Today)

With his unsurpassed ability to explain even the most difficult mathematical and conceptual steps with a few strokes of his pen, Weinberg takes the reader from the basics of cosmological kinematics and dynamics (space-time geometry, cosmological expansion, the Friedmann equation, thermal history) to advanced topics, such as the growth of structures, inflation and gravitational lenses. (Mathematical Reviews)

A tour de force that even established cosmologists will learn from. Any scientist interested in cosmology should read it.

Steven Weinberg's "Cosmology" is a thorough, graduate-level introduction to the field, which incorporates the frenzied developments since his 1972 classic, "Gravitation and Cosmology". This is sure to be another hit. (New Scientist)

I admire this book, and its author. I had read his popular account The First Three Minutes, but I wanted mathematics to aid my understanding. I'm no physicist, nor am I a mathematician, but somehow equations so often seem to make certain things more understandable than words. Now, let's be clear: 60% or so of the tome is beyond me. But I'm OK about that. I got what I wanted from the remainder, discovering some maths that made his ideas (& those of other writers like Alan Guth) much clearer to me. Given that it was written to be suitable for a 2 semester graduate school course I have no hard feelings about not being on top of most of it. I got enough to understand where he was coming from.

His scholarship is prodigious. Beginning with Einstein & those who proffered solutions to his landmark equations, right up to inflation and then the mighty (empirical) discovery of the 90s that the expansion of the universe is accelerating and it's due to dark energy. It is all so breathtaking. This man won a Nobel Prize back in the 1970s (I think it was) in a completely different field of physics. Now he moves sideways and demonstrates (in his 80s) that he is all class, a cutting edge scholar of intimidating proportions.

I used to tell my first years that the BIG questions we all should care about come from cosmology (how the whole box & dice began & evolved), biology (how life formed and evolved), and from our discipline, anthropology, (for how we humans evolved and changed). This book confirms me in that belief.

The only reason I have not given it 5 stars is that as an outsider who is not with all the esoterica, I feel unqualified to say unreservedly, this is a 5 star book. I hope the author isn't offended with that reason; 4 is still a distinction grade.

5つ星のうち 5.0 A wonderful book! 2011/7/12

I was skeptical at first because Weinberg's own work in cosmology, so nicely explained in his book The First Three Minutes: A Modern View Of The Origin Of The Universe is quite old.

But "Cosmology" is not about his own work. In the preface he explains that in 1999 particle physicists like himself were starting to find cosmology more relevant than particle accelerators, and he had time on his hands because he had just finished writing his three volume set on quantum field theory, The Quantum Theory of Fields, Volume 1: Foundations, The Quantum Theory of Fields, Volume 2: Modern Applications, and The Quantum Theory of Fields, Volume 3: Supersymmetry. So he decided to teach himself the developments in cosmology of the last 20 years. He started by reading survey articles. But he found they often left out the proofs or gave incomplete or incorrect ones. The proofs they referred to were sometimes just complicated computer calculations. He tried to reconstruct partially explained proofs and very often gave up and produced his own completely original proofs, and this book is the result. He spent the years from 1999 to 2008 on this effort.

And so it is to everyone's good luck that this Nobel prize winning particle physicist rolled up his sleeves and devoted a decade of his life to understanding modern cosmology.

He is one of the main architects of the Standard Model and rumors from CERN are that a Higgs boson has been detected and that its existence may be verified as early as the Summer of 2012. He must be very happy, because his work for which he received a Nobel prize was based on the existence of the Higgs field. By the way, this means that there is an ether after all, but it's Lorentz invariant, and you cannot detect your motion relative to it!

Weinberg taught himself newer results cosmology and is a good writer. I like the inclusion of detailed equations, and the approach to GR based on quantum field theory.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Great Read for Advanced Self-Educating in the Field Cosmology 2015/11/3

I am conducting intense research on astrophysics and cosmology as a self educating endeavor. This is not an ideal book for beginners in this field. It is an outstanding and effectively presented gathering of current astrophysics and cosmology studies into one book. A friend recommended Steven Weinberg’s book on Cosmology to me, among several other books, as a reputable source in the field. Weinberg's book is widely used in universities to teach students in physics and cosmology. I enjoyed reading the book and being introduced to various equations, studies, and branches of ideology in the field. It is apparent that this science is still developing, theories get overridden by new and better theories, but observations remain constant and stand the test of time. At times, some of the equations were confusing and misleading, but after additional research from other sources, I was able to make some sense of this incomprehensible material, and try to understand why our scientists are leading us down their path, which in my view is not necessarily the right road. Always remember that math does not control how the universe exists, it only tries to capture and replicate it in numbers and equations. Same applies with math trying to emulate how nature operates and functions, even in the micro world of quantum physics. Question everything, and most of all do your own research; do not trust the word of our greatest scientists as absolute, for they too are as human as you and I, and are prone to mistakes. The universe does not obey them, the universe is indifferent, as stated by Carl Sagan.
