### Corrections:

Page 5. In Fig. 1.1 there should be V_{B}(A) instead of V_{B}(C)

Page 6. In the problem 1.1 there should be: "Show that the only *isotropic *solution of this equation is given by (1.1)"

Page 109. In Fig. 3.7 there should be 86 keV instead of 0.86 keV

Page 158. In the last expression in (4.72) there should be e_{R} instead of e_{L}

Page 273. In (6.50) the imaginary* i *is missing under exponent

Page 276. In the sentence before (6.61) there must be "...dark *energy* with w<-1/3" instead of "dark matter"

Page 281. The ansatz (6.90) for the strain tensor in spherically symmetric inhonomogeneity is wrong (I am grateful to J. Garriga for pointing me out this mistake). The corrected derivation of Tolman solution is here...

Page 312. In equation (7.102) there should be ...(1-2\psi)... instead of ...(1+2\psi)... .

Page 349. In equation (8.117) the contribution of only one polarization mode is taken into account. Because gravitational waves have two independent polarizations the result in (8.117) and correspondingly in (8.119), (8.124) and (8.126) must be multiplied by a factor 2.

Page 393. In both equations after (9.124) and before (9.125) exp(...) is missing on the l.h.s.
