    This text presents modern astrophysics using the basic tools of physics. The text can be used for a course in stellar structure and evolution, with additional material on the solar system, galactic structure, dynamics, evolution, and cosmology. This introductory textbook for undergraduate courses in galactic astrophysics and cosmology was developed as a more compact and focused alternative to its parent volume, An Introduction to Modern Astrophysics. Aimed at astronomy and physics majors, it offers thorough coverage of galactic structure and evolution, active galaxies, cosmology, and the.

    This book fills an important gap in astronomy lecture courses. It summarizes the most modern achievements in cosmology, in particular Dark Matter and Dark Energy. I started using it for my introductory astrophysics lectures on the day it appeared. Prof. Günther Hasinger, Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics. Starting with the description of our home galaxy the Milky Way, this cogently written textbook introduces the reader to the astronomy of galaxies, their structure, active galactic nuclei, evolution and large scale distribution. Then, from the extensive and thorough introduction to modern observational and theoretical cosmology, the text turns to the formation of structures 5/5(1).
