Understanding the way in which large-scale structures like galaxies form remains the most challenging problem in cosmology today. This text provides an up-to-date and pedagogical introduction to this exciting area of research. Part 1 deals with the Friedmann model, the thermal history of the Universe, and includes a description of observed structures in the Universe. Part 2 describes the theory of gravitational instability in both the linear and non-linear regimes. This part also includes chapters on the microwave background radiation, large-scale velocity fields, quasars and high redshift objects. Part 3 covers inflation, cosmic strings and dark matter. Each chapter is accompanied by a comprehensive set of exercises to help the reader in self-study. The book will be of interest to research and graduate students in cosmology, relativity, theoretical physics, astrophysics and astronomy. It is also suitable for use as a graduate textbook for introductory graduate level courses.

Recensione:

'Padmanabhan has written an invaluable exposition from first physical principles of almost all the things that a new graduate student embarking upon research in theoretical cosmology needs to know ... A unique feature, for a book at this level, is the extensive collection of advanced problems at the end of each chapter ... Overall, I found Padmanabhan's book to be an extremely useful working text that covers most of the topics at the research frontier.' Prof. John Barrow, The Times Higher Education Supplement

'This highly readable book gives an excellent exposition of the ideas and methods required up to now, to carry through the programme of modelling structure formation in the universe ... the main points and the key ideas are presented in a form that should not date rapidly. The author is to be congratulated on achieving this difficult task.' Classical and Quantum Gravity

' ... destined to become a classic of its kind.' New Scientist
