As the structures in our Universe are mapped out on ever larger scales, and with increasing detail, the use of inhomogeneous models is becoming an essential tool for analyzing and understanding them. This book reviews a number of important developments in the application of inhomogeneous solutions of Einstein's field equations to cosmology. It shows how inhomogeneous models can be employed to study the evolution of structures such as galaxy clusters and galaxies with central black holes, and to account for cosmological observations like supernovae dimming, the cosmic microwave background, baryon acoustic oscillations or the dependence of the Hubble parameter on redshift within classical general relativity.
...a necessary book, written from a general relativity point of view to study cosmological models. In order for this research field to further flourish and become main stream, we now need a book written by cosmologists. It should address those same questions from the cosmological standard model angle aimed to study inhomogeneous models. In the ideal world where those two meet, we can expect to attain a deeper understanding of our Universe. General Relativity and Gravitation
