Good Introductory Book/Article to Dark Energy?

  1. Jul 18, 2012 #1
    I have read a lot about Dark Energy in books meant for the general public and I would really like to learn more. I am a junior undergrad physics and math major. Can anyone recommend a good introductory book/article that is appropriate for an undergraduate? Thanks!

    Thanks a lot! That definitely looks a lot easier to understand than some of the articles I've tried to read.

    Just to get a balanced perspective you might also have a look at
    "Why all these prejudices against a constant?" :biggrin:

    It's also written to be fairly widely accessible.

    Yet another paper "Dark Energy: Mystery of the Millenium" http://arxiv.org/abs/astro-ph/0603114 by Padmanabhan, one of the foremost authorities on dark energy.
