The artist who painted the cover illustration is not 'Mark Zimmerman' but my favorite artist Martin Zimmermann ... what a shame... p xii, Preface I forgot to mention Filippo Vernizzi who read parts (especially chaps. 1 and 2) and gave me many important feedbacks. How could this happen? Sorry Filippo! p22 eq. 1.83 the integrand should be σ_{T}n_{e} a not a^{1} p24 displayed eqn. below eq.

The universes with values of (Ω_{m}, Ω_{Λ}) in the dashed region expand forever. Those below emerge from a big bang and recollapse into a big crunch, those above... (thanks to Roberto Trotta ) p386 eq. A10.6 T,i should be T_{,i} (thanks to Francesco Montanari ) p389 eq. in middle l1, not l Found any typo in the 2nd edition my book? Let me know so I can compose this list also for the 2nd edition (hopefully much shorter....).
