      Overview

      The universe seen from within, according to the laws that govern it, summarised in a few fundamental mathematical formulae.

      Beginning with the elementary model of the cosmos, the book goes through the doubts and ideas of the fathers of contemporary physics and cosmology, in a journey from the microcosm to the macrocosm, from Newton's law of universal gravitation to elementary particles and the expansion of the universe.

      The author addresses these issues of physics from a mathematical point of view, complementing his work with numerical examples and historical references to ideas and discoveries that are still valid, but often neglected.
