    [TD="class: alt2, bgcolor: #F4F2ED"]God's Equation: Einstein, Relativity and the Expanding Universe
    by Amir D. Aczel

    Aczel is an author with powerful credentials, as the author of "Fermat's Last Theorem." That book was over my head mathematically.

    "God's Equation" is a riveting read. The author commits the first chapter to explain the importance of Supernovae and their classifications to our understanding of the nature of the universe. This is the groundwork, and I had no difficulty at all understanding it.

    Next, the author gives a biographical sketch of Albert Einstein, whose work is fundamental to our general understanding today. Particularly important is a piece of work that Einstein had dismissed as flawed, termed the Cosmological Constant. As it turns out, this bit of mathematics may be the key to our understanding of the phenomenon of a universe that is not only EXPANDING, but the outermost galaxies are accelerating away at a rate faster than the innermost galaxies. What does this mean? According to Axcel's exciting book, astrophysicists can only conclude that the universe is INFINITE.
