Summary

This classic text, aimed at senior undergraduates and beginning graduate students in physics and astronomy, presents a wide range of astrophysical concepts in sufficient depth to give the reader a quantitative understanding of the subject. Emphasizing physical concepts, the book outlines cosmic events through a series of astrophysical sketches. For this fourth edition, nearly every part of the text has been rewritten; new sections have been added to cover recent advances in our understanding of black holes, the formation of galaxies and clusters, and the evolution of the Universe.
