"It presents a self-contained introduction to general relativity that is based on the homogeneity and isotropy of the local universe. The simplicity of this space allows general relativity to be introduced in a very elementary manner while laying the foundation for the treatment of more complicated problems." "The latest observations and theories are discussed, with an emphasis on estimations of the densities of matter and vacuum energy, and on the study of primordial density fluctuations and the nature of dark matter."--Jacket." ;
