The authors discuss all the relevant cosmological and astrophysical evidence. They present a state-of-the-art analysis of the observational and theoretical arguments surrounding the existence of dark matter, primordial nucleosynthesis, large-scale structure formation and the cosmic microwave background radiation. In this way, they provide an indispensable introduction to the most exciting recent developments in modern cosmology.Written by two eminent cosmologists, this topical and provocative book will be essential reading for all cosmologists and astrophysicists.
