Item description for My Universe: Selected Reviews Ya. B. Zeldovich by ZELDOVICH...

In this fascinating book, the reader is offered a selection of papers summarizing the unique contribution to modern cosmology of the Soviet school, led by the late Yakov Borisovich Zeldovich. The first three articles in this selection introduce the general reader to the underlying theories of cosmology: the birth and expansion of the Universe, matter and antimatter. The remaining five contributions are review papers offering the more advanced reader a deeper understanding of the structure of the universe, cosmological field theory, microwave background radiation and galactic distribution. The balance of introductory and advanced papers makes My Universe a work of value for graduate students entering the field, for research workers expanding their knowledge, and for the layman seeking an insight into one of the most important subjects of the 20th century.

Reviews - What do customers think about My Universe: Selected Reviews Ya. B. Zeldovich?

A great collection of works by a great scientist  Jul 25, 2005
This is an excellent collection of works by one of the great and universal scientists of the 20th century. This should not be considered as a textbook; this is really a collection of review papers, both expositional for the lay audience, and rather advanced articles. This book provides a great introduction at provides an overview of the state of the field as of 1987. Some of the speculations have proven to be true, others forgotten, while many are still open. The book is interesting as an introductory overview of the subjects, as well as a historical perspective.
The cost was a little high, considering that it is a paperback.
Good Book  Apr 15, 2000
This is heavy stuff, and it took me a while to get through, but it was definitely worth it! The author offers solid scientific information alongside his own personal insights and feelings into the science of the universe.
