Apocalypse du Jour--the forgotten black holes.


Welcome To


Tony Rothman's Home Page



I am a cosmologist whose interests lie primarily in the study of the early universe, black holes, the general theory of relativity and, more broadly, in fundamental physics. For a partial list of my scientific papers, click here.  In an attempt to minimize spam, I have removed my email address

from this web page, but if you wish to contact me it's easy enough: try the standard 1 + 7 address at Princeton University, where I am currently lecturing, or search the online directory there.


Apart from my scientific work, I also write. Click on the cover below for a look at my various books, which include fiction, popular science and mathematics.
