A special solution of the Maxwell equations is presented, which disposes of the properties the Higgs-field must have, if it should not violate already secured perceptions and observations. If both fields are identical remains to be seen at this time.

These notes form an introduction to cosmology with special emphasis on large scale structure, the cmb anisotropy and inflation. In some places a basic familiarity with particle physics is assumed, but otherwise no special knowledge is needed.
