16 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Mark E. Miller on August 19, 2001
Format: Paperback
Originally published in 1934, this Dover reprint covers the early development of cosmology in a rigorous mathematical format. You need to know math through tensor equations (as you would for any rigorous treatment of cosmology), and this probably should not be anyone's first foray into cosmology. For that, see Peebles. Having said that, this gives sidelights present nowhere else, and a fine treatment of some by-passed cosmological models.

14 of 15 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on September 6, 1999
Format: Paperback
This classic book should be on the shelf of every physicist interested in relativity. The exposition is very clear and can be used to fix some ideas. My comments do not include the thermodynamics part, which I'm not competent to review. The cosmological applications are, evidently, severaly outdated, but can be very useful for those interested in the history of the development of observational cosmology.
