Inflationary Cosmology and Structure Formation
by J. A. Peacock
Publisher: arXiv 1996
Number of pages: 77
These lectures cover the basics of inflationary models for the early universe, concentrating particularly on the generation of density fluctuations from scalar-field dynamics. The subsequent gravitational dynamics of these fluctuations in dark matter in a Friedmann model are described, leading to a review of the current situation in confronting inflationary models with the latest data on the clustering of galaxies and other measures of large-scale structure.

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.

There are fundamental relations between two vast areas of physics: particle physics and cosmology (micro- and macro-worlds). The main goal of this book is to establish and define the connection of these two fields with condensed matter physics.

This text covers the theory of cosmological perturbations, which describes the generation of inhomogeneities in the early universe and their evolution until the current time. The theory is applied to three classes of models of the early universe.

These proceedings summarize lectures in elementary particle physics at the University of Colorado at Boulder. They provide a pedagogical introduction to cosmology aimed at advanced graduate students in particle physics and string theory.
