Introduction to Early Universe Cosmology
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 70

Description:
A central topic in these lectures is the 'theory of cosmological perturbations', the theory which describes the generation of inhomogeneities in the very early universe and their evolution until the current time. The theory is applied to three classes of models of the very early universe.

This text discusses the cosmological constant problem at a pedagogical but fully technical level. We review how the vacuum energy can be regularized in flat and curved space-time and how it can be understood in terms of Feynman bubble diagrams.

Introductory lectures on cosmology for students specializing in particle physics are presented. Many important subjects are not covered because of lack of time and space but hopefully the lectures may serve as a starting point for further studies.
