The book then goes on to provide a critical evaluation of advanced subjects in modern cosmology and theoretical physics. Topics covered include the origin of the universe, warped spacetime, cosmological singularities, quantum gravity, black holes, string theory, quantum cosmology and inflation.

    Hoddeson: This is Lillian Hoddeson. Gordon Baym and I are interviewing Sir Rudolf Peierls during a Symposium on the History of Nuclear Physics in Minneapolis. Today is May 20th, I’d like to begin this session by asking you to give me a little background on your working relationship to Pauli and Heisenberg in the late twenties and early thirties. Here is the intensely personal and often humorous autobiography of one of the most distinguished theoretical physicists of his generation, Sir Rudolf Peierls. Born in Germany in , Peierls was indeed a bird of passage," whose career of fifty-five years took him to leading centers of physics--including Munich, Leipzig, Zurich, Copenhagen.

This book develops the subject from the basic principles of quantum mechanics.

The emphasis is on a single statement of the ideas underlying the various approximations that have to be used and care is taken to separate sound arguments from conjecture.
