Big Bang Nucleosynthesis and Physics Beyond the Standard Model
by Subir Sarkar
Publisher: arXiv 1996
Number of pages: 156
We first present a pedagogical account of relativistic cosmology and primordial nucleosynthesis, discussing both theoretical and observational aspects, and then proceed to examine such constraints in detail, in particular those pertaining to new massless particles and massive unstable particles. Finally, in a section aimed at particle physicists, we illustrate applications of such constraints to models of new physics.

In these lectures I review the present status of the so-called Standard Cosmological Model, based on the hot Big Bang Theory and the Inflationary Paradigm. I will make special emphasis on the recent developments in observational cosmology ...

We review the question of primordial magnetic fields and consider the limits set on their strength by the observational data. The various mechanisms of pre-recombination magnetogenesis are presented and their advantages and shortcomings are debated.

Here is an introduction to several advanced topics in contemporary cosmology. Topics covered: the thermal history of the universe, linear perturbation theory, theory of CMBR temperature anisotropies and the inflationary generation of perturbation.
