Introduction to Cosmology


This is a book review of Introduction to Cosmology by Barbara Ryden.

There are two errors in the review. First, the reference

(4) M. Holman, Foundations of Physics (submitted), arXiv:1803.05148.
(correct at the time of writing, and which I updated at the proof stage, changing "submitted" to "accepted" and adding a DOI, but which unfortunately wasn't incorporated into the printed version) should be
Marc Holman: "How Problematic is the Near-Euclidean Spatial Geometry of the Large-Scale Universe?", Foundations of Physics, Volume 48, Issue 11, pp. 1617-1647
and second,
flatness, horizon, and multipole problems
should read
flatness, horizon, and monopole problems
