CMB Info Needed

  1. Apr 11, 2005 #1
    Does anyone here know of any good books or sites that describe the CMB in a comprehensive way? I want to learn more about it, because I find it very interesting, but most of what I've found is just snippets here and there, or descriptions that either take for granted that I know alot about physics, mathematics, or both.

    I just want to know what it is, what it's properties are, etc. in terms a lay person can understand.

    I don't think there are any books on this yet. Precision CMB science is too new, I think. You're better off searching websites and, if you can stomach it, reading some of the papers. Along with what hellfire suggested, the WMAP website is a good place to start.
