**Particle Physics Aspects of Modern Cosmology**

by Robert H. Brandenberger

**Publisher**: arXiv 1997**Number of pages**: 70

**Description**:

Modern cosmology has created a tight link between particle physics / field theory and a wealth of new observational data on the structure of the Universe. These lecture notes focus on some of the most important aspects concerning the connection between theory and observations.
