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.
