Hence, scattering processes and decay of unstable elementary particles are important for cosmological models of this period. Subject history - Energy of the cosmos - History of the universe - Areas of study. The rest of the book then provides self-contained accounts of all the key topics in contemporary cosmology, including inflation, topological defects, gravitational lensing, galaxy formation, large-scale structure and the distance scale. To aid understanding, the book is well illustrated with helpful figures and includes outline.
5 Sep Abstract: We present a summary of the International conference "Problems of practical cosmology", held at Russian Geographical Society, June , St .-Petersburg, Russia, where original reports were offered for discussion of new developments in modern cosmological physics, including the large. Physics is a graduate-level introduction to cosmology, the study of the structure and evolution of the universe. As a post-candidacy level course, it is appropriate for students in all specialties, with only standard first-year courses as prerequisites. The course will describe the basics of the standard Big-Bang model. Course content. Einstein-Hilbert action and quantum fields in curved spacetimes. Inflation and reheating. Quantum fields at finite temperature. Standard model in the early universe. The Boltzmann equation. Cosmological phase transitions. Baryogenesis. Nucleosynthesis and recombination. Microwave background.
