TitleWelcome to the universe: The Problem Book
Author(s)Neil DeGrasse Tyson;Michael A. Strauss;J. Richard Gott
PublicationPrinceton, Princeton University Press, 2017.
Descriptionxxv, 235p.
Abstract NoteWelcome to the Universe is a personal guided tour of the cosmos by three of today's leading astrophysicists. Inspired by the enormously popular introductory astronomy course that Neil deGrasse Tyson, Michael A. Strauss, and J. Richard Gott taught together at Princeton, this book covers it all--from planets, stars, and galaxies to black holes, wormholes, and time travel. Describing the latest discoveries in astrophysics, the informative and entertaining narrative propels you from our home solar system to the outermost frontiers of space. How do stars live and die? Why did Pluto lose its planetary status? What are the prospects of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe? How did the universe begin? Why is it expanding and why is its expansion accelerating? Is our universe alone or part of an infinite multiverse? Answering these and many other questions, the authors open your eyes to the wonders of the cosmos, sharing their knowledge of how the universe works. Breathtaking in scope and stunningly illustrated throughout, Welcome to the Universe is for those who hunger for insights into our evolving universe that only world-class astrophysicists can provide.

Title100 years of Einstein's theory of relativity: An Introduction to Gravity and Cosmology
Author(s)C. Sivaram;Kenath Arun;Kiren O.V.
PublicationNew Delhi, Ane Books, 2016.
Descriptionxiv, 225p.
Abstract NoteThis book attempts to give a comprehensive overview of the general theory of relativity including several current developments in both theory and experiment, starting from a brief introduction on special relativity and Newtonian gravity to Einstein's geometrical interpretation of gravity. We have emphasized the accuracy to which GR has been tested in recent years. Cosmology has been discussed elaborately, starting from the early universe to dark matter and dark energy. The appendices elaborate in some detail the tensor algebra required including differential geometry concepts, calculation of curvature etc. Problems are given in every chapter to help understand the topics discussed and to acquire working knowledge of the subject. Even after 100 years, GR is very much an active and exciting area of research with lots of phenomena still to be understood.

TitleAstrophysics and the evolution of the universe
Author(s)Leonard S. Kisslinger
PublicationNew Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2014.
Descriptionxii, 206p.
Abstract NoteThe aim of this book is to teach undergraduate college or university students the basic physics concepts needed to understand the mathematics which describes the evolution of the universe, and based on this to teach the astrophysical theories behind evolution from very early times to the present. The book does not require students to have extensive knowledge of mathematics, like calculus, and includes material that explains concepts such as velocity, acceleration, and force. Based on this, fascinating topics such as Dark Matter, measuring Dark Energy via supernovae velocities, and the creation of mass via the Higgs mechanism are explained. All college students with an interest in science, especially astronomy, without extensive mathematical backgrounds should be able to use and learn from this book. Adults interested in topics like dark energy and the Higgs boson, which are in the news, can make use of this book as well.
