レビュー

Review of the German Edition:
This book fills an important gap in astronomy lecture courses. It summarizes the most modern achievements in cosmology, in particular Dark Matter and Dark Energy. I started using it for my introductory astrophysics lectures on the day it appeared.

Prof. Günther Hasinger, Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics

During the past years extragalactic astrophysics has made rapid progress. An up-to-date, didactically written summary was not available so far. With its coherent description of the underlying physical principles and the attractive presentation of both the vast observational material and computer simulations, using colorful images throughout, Peter Schneider’s textbook fills that gap in an excellent way.

Prof. M. Steinmetz, Astrophysical Institute Potsdam

Pre-Publication Review of the English Edition:
I think this could be a superb textbook for courses on galaxies and cosmology, where, alas, there are not many, and certainly none that are up-to-date in the field.

Prof. John Huchra, Harvard University

From the reviews:

"Extragalactic Astronomy and Cosmology traces the development of our understanding of the structures in the universe from both a theoretical and an observational standpoint. … A particularly important and attractive aspect of the presentation is the inclusion of well-reasoned descriptions of the fundamental physical principles that underlie the equations. The book is current even though the field is one of rapid development. … Masterful blending of observation and theory; lucid exposition. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students through professionals." (D. E. Hogg, CHOICE, Vol. 44 (10), June, 2007)

"Through the richness of the color illustrations and through the deep insight of the content, the book will most certainly lead the reader to the forefront of astronomical research in this very interesting and fascinating domain of astronomy. … will not only be highly appreciated by undergraduate students in astronomy but also by graduate students and researchers involved in the field who will certainly appreciate its comprehensive coverage. Teachers and lecturers will also consider it as a mine of information and as a reliable reference." (Emile Biémont, Physicalia Magazine, Vol. 29 (4), 2007)

内容紹介

This book outlines the fundamentals of this fascinating branch of astronomy, and explores the forefront of astronomical research. The author’s passion for the topic shines with an intensity that rivals the book’s many colourful illustrations, and will deeply inspire the reader. The cogently written text introduces the reader to the astronomy of galaxies, their structure, their active galactic nuclei, their evolution and their large scale distribution. Starting with a detailed description of our Milky Way, and a review of modern observational and theoretical cosmology, the book goes on to examine the formation of structures and astronomical objects in the early universe.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Most Impressive 2008/11/21
投稿者 Brian H. - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
I have to second an earlier reviewer's take on this book - it's simply great. It is very up to date and thorough, and the writing is engaging. It's obvious Prof. Schneider loves astronomy and enjoys making it clear and accessible. Often I felt he went out of his way to include all the steps in a logical progression, whether or not he felt some were "obvious."

The book's many graphs and full color photos are a particular highlight. Never have I seen visual aids used to such impressive and educational effect. Want to see the ellipses of individual stars orbiting the 4 million solar mass black hole in the center of the galaxy? The image is right here, along with dozens of others. Note that this is a book for people who are comfortable with calculus-based math and physics. But while the important math is there, complex derivations and pages of notation are thankfully absent. It seems that Prof. Schneider included only the math that needed to be there and no more, leaving words and graphs to tell as much of the story as possible.

This book is almost like an encyclopedia: everything that is written covers essential topics succinctly yet completely. Three appendices cover fundamental astronomical concepts for those who would like a brief review. The section on recommended literature is right on the money and includes useful online references.

While I think this book would be an excellent textbook there are no student questions or problems. Had they been included the book would have been much longer than its already considerable 460 pages. For those looking for exercises I recommend "An Introduction to Modern Astrophysics," 2nd edition (2006), by Carroll and Ostlie.

The last 20 years has changed our understanding of the universe tremendously. This book does a great job of explaining all these new advances to those of us who aren't professional astronomers. Highly recommended.

5つ星のうち 5.0 How many stars in all the galaxies in the universe? 2012/11/6
投稿者 Rmz - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I'm about 25 % through this book, and I'm reading it to decide if I should follow the Coursera/Caltech course Galaxies and Cosmology ([...]) that has this book on it's reading list. I still haven't decided, but the book is well written, about fairly modern developments in astronomy/cosmology (as far as I can tell, I'm not an expert). The math is within what I can wrap my head around (I'm a comp.sci. M. Sc.) and it's an enjoyable read: It's written enthusiastically but still thorough style, and it's got nice pictures ;) Will i take the Coursera course? I'm not sure, but I am sure that I will finish the last 75% of this book ;)

5つ星のうち 4.0 issue with kindle version 2009/6/25
投稿者 vivere - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I am only addressing the kindle version and not the substance of this book, for which I defer to the other reviewers. I have a hardback edition, which I never opened until I recently bought the digital edition for the kindle DX. I first opened the dgital version on the iphone 3G and I was pleasantly surprised to see the *color* pictures rendered beautifully on the iphone screen. I did not read very far, however, when I noticed an unfinished sentence at location 281-286 right above the legend for FIG. 1.3 in the digital version (iphone and kindle). I checked the paper edition. The text there is in two columns, and the text that is missing from the digital version appears right after FIG. 1.3 on the left column of the paper edition.
I don't know whether there are other errors in the digital version. The purpose of this review is to alert readers and Amazon to exercise better quality control on the digital versions of the books.
I gave four stars to bring attention to this issue. By the way, I prefer reading the book on the iphone because of the crisp resolution and color.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Fantastic book 2008/4/7
投稿者 mcerner - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
Can a textbook in cosmology really become a coffee-table book? In my house, yes, but then this book is really beautiful. The color photos are stunning, and there are enough of them to keep the topic very exciting, as if cosmology weren't rather awesome to begin with. Also many charts/diagrams, a bunch of formulas, and lots of highly informative text. If it sounds like I'm only looking at the pictures, though, I am not. I'm a physicist wanting to reacquaint myself with cosmology, which I enjoyed back in graduate school. The actual text is appropriate to a grad school audience, and it is quite thorough -- but not suitable to the general public.

I could not have been more pleased to buy this book. I would recommend buying it to anyone interested in galactic astronomy and cosmology. From Brian Patton
