This book is written from the viewpoint of a deep connection between cosmology and particle physics. It presents the results and ideas on both the homogeneous and isotropic Universe at the hot stage of its evolution and in later stages. The main chapters describe in a systematic and pedagogical way established facts and concepts on the early and the present Universe. The comprehensive treatment, hence, serves as a modern introduction to this rapidly developing field of science. To help in reading the chapters without having to constantly consult other texts, essential materials from General Relativity and the theory of elementary particles are collected in the appendices. Various hypotheses dealing with unsolved problems of cosmology, and often alternative to each other, are discussed at a more advanced level. These concern dark matter, dark energy, matter-antimatter asymmetry, etc.

This set of two volumes on the early universe is a truly excellent treatise on the subject. The volumes cover both particle physics and general relativity aspects systematically and in detail. The discussion is self-contained and brings out the tremendous progress that has occurred in the last 2 3 decades. -- Abhay Ashtekar "Director, Institute for Gravitation & the Cosmos, Pennsylvania State University"
