Introduction to Cosmology Introduction to Cosmology by Jayant V. Narlikar, Fred Hoyle
. Spectacular discoveries about the origin of the universe and the nature of the "Big Bang" have occurred during the past decade. This introduction to the physics of cosmology examines at a level appropriate for undergraduates the very early universe, particle and quantum physics, and black holes in the context of the origin of structure in the universe.

Cosmological Physics by John A. Peacock
. This eagerly-awaited textbook provides advanced undergraduate and graduate students with a complete introduction to contemporary cosmology. It successfully bridges the gap between undergraduate and advanced graduate texts by discussing topics of current research, starting from first principles.Throughout this authoritative volume, emphasis is given to the simplest, most intuitive explanation for key equations used by researchers.

Cosmology and Astrophysics Through Problems Cosmology and Astrophysics Through Problems by T. Padmanabhan
. This self-study textbook provides a clear introduction through a series of problems and answers. The first half covers astrophysical processes, gravitational dynamics, radiative processes, fluid mechanics and general relativity. The second half uses these concepts to develop modern cosmology.

Cosmology: A First Course by Marc Lachieze-Rey, John Simmons (Illustrator)
. Based on the fundamental ideas of general relativity, such as the spacetime interval, comoving coordinates, and spacetime curvature, this text provides an up-to-date and thoughtful discussion of the Big Bang and the crucial questions of structure and galaxy formation. Buy this book

Principles of Physical Cosmology Principles of Physical Cosmology (Princeton Series in Physics) by P. J. E. Peebles
. During the last twenty years, dramatic improvements in methods of observing astrophysical phenomena from the ground and in space have added to our knowledge of what the universe is like now and what it was like in the past, going back to the hot big bang. In this overview of today's physical cosmology, P.J.E. Peebles shows how observation has combined with theoretical elements to establish the subject as a mature science, while he also discusses the most notable recent attempts to understand the origin and structure of the universe. A successor to Peebles's classic volume Physical Cosmology (Princeton, 1971), the book is a comprehensive overview addressed not only to students but also to scientists active in fields outside cosmology.
