A complete account of the fundamental techniques of general
relativity and their application to cosmology. The book includes
reviews of the different cosmological models and their
classification, including such topics as causality and horizons,
the cosmological parameters, observational tests and constraints of
cosmology, symmetries and the large scale topology of space and
space-time, and the use of supernovas as cosmological indicators.
The perturbations to the cosmological models are discussed
throughout the volume. The cosmic microwave background is
presented, with an emphasis in secondary distortions in relation to
cosmological models and large scale structures. Recent results on
dark matter are summarised. A general review of primordial
nucleosynthesis is given. Gravitational lensing is discussed in
great detail. Most contributions show a balance between theory and
observation. Readership: A solid background for students and
researchers intending to work in the field of theoretical and
