A Book for Early Universe

  1. Jun 6, 2008 #1
    Could anyone suggest a book/lecture notes on the early universe, especially the thermodynamics of it i.e. Big-Bang Nucleosynthesis etc.. I have a book -Early Universe by Kolb and Turner, but I dint really find it readable. Its not exactly reader friendly. But I would be really glad if someone could suggest some other book on similar lines.

    by Dan Hooper (Author)

    Dark Side of the Universe: Dark Matter, Dark Energy, and the Fate of the Cosmos (Hardcover)

    What sort of level or background knowledge do you have? Are you seeking a textbook or a popular science book?
