From here Narlikar ends the book with discussion of observational cosmology, exploring the implications of local observations such as background microwave radiation that permeates the universe, a discovery of Penzias and Wilson at Bell Telephone Laboratoriesthe Hubble Constant and redshift issues, and quasars do they or do they not fit standard models of cosmology and scientific principles currently known?

Showing of 3 reviews. From here, Narlikar progresses to some non-standard cosmological constructions, including anisotropic cosmologies, steady state theories and cosmologies that might correspond sn the Mach principle although, as the name non-standard would indicate, these are fringe, or sometimes, older theories, which are largely discredited, but science must look to them as they occasionally give insight into observations.

Introductlon Negi marked it as to-read Jan 30, This is a graduate-level textbook on one of the most difficult subjects around–mathematical, theoretical explorations of large-scale universal structures. The astronomer tends to introductiom cosmology as a playground for general relativists rather than a logical extension of extragalactic astronomy.
