Particle Physics and Inflationary Cosmology
by Andrei Linde
Publisher: arXiv 2005
Number of pages: 270
This volume is a complete and systematic monograph on inflationary cosmology and cosmological phase transitions. Dr. Linde, a primary developer of these theories, offers a thorough investigation of modern cosmology and its relation to elementary particle physics, including a large introductory section containing a complete discussion of inflationary cosmology for those not yet familiar with the theory.

The book elucidates the current state of the dark energy problem and presents the results of the authors, who work in this area. It describes the observational evidence for the existence of dark energy, the methods of constraining of its parameters.

In this review we present a thoroughly comprehensive survey of recent work on modified theories of gravity and their cosmological consequences. We cover General Relativity, Scalar-Tensor, Einstein-Aether, Bimetric theories, TeVeS, Galileons, etc.

Inflation is today the main theoretical framework that describes the early Universe. These lectures give an introduction to inflation and the production of primordial perturbations, and a review of some of the latest developments in this domain.
