Fundamental Astronomy is a well-balanced, comprehensive introduction to classical and modern astronomy. While emphasizing both the astronomical concepts and the underlying physical principles, the text provides a sound basis for more profound studies in the astronomical sciences. This is the fifth edition of the successful undergraduate textbook and reference work. It has been extensively modernized and extended in the parts dealing with extragalactic astronomy and cosmology. You will also find augmented sections on the solar system and extrasolar planets as well as a new chapter on astrobiology. Long considered a standard text for physical science majors, Fundamental Astronomy is also an excellent reference work for dedicated amateur astronomers.

Recensioner i media

"The editors assert that Fundamental Astronomy is intended as 'a university textbook for a first course in astronomy,' but it will more likely be used as a reference volume in departmental and observatory libraries. The contributing authors (astronomers and geodesists) employ mathematics, especially calculus, extensively throughout the work. ... The text covers all planetary science, astrophysics, and cosmology. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above; faculty and professionals." (S. P. Maran, Choice, Vol. 57 (11), July, 2017) "The overall choice of topics and the depth and breadth that this book ... are essential for a great understanding of astronomy. I feel like it is as good a book as far as the basics of theory and observational astrophysics are concerned. Everything is explained clearly and where possible there are helpful diagrams, figures and photos that are there exactly when you need them. ... Something that I also enjoyed a lot, was the extensive set of tables." (, May, 2017)
