Introduction to Early Universe Cosmology
by Robert H. Brandenberger
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 70
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.

A pedagogical introduction to aspects of string cosmology, including the landscape (BPBT) solution to the cosmological constant problem, brane-antibrane inflation, warped compactification, the KKLMMT model, the eta problem of SUGRA models, etc.

The authors review the current standard model for the evolution of the Universe from an early inflationary epoch to the complex hierarchy of structure seen today. The text concludes with discussion of some open questions in cosmology.

Aspects of superstring cosmology are reviewed with an emphasis on the cosmological implications of duality symmetries in the theory. The string effective actions are summarized and toroidal compactification to four dimensions reviewed.
