Cosmic Microwave Background Anisotropies up to Second Order

Publisher: arXiv 2007
Number of pages: 53
These lecture notes present the computation of the full system of Boltzmann equations describing the evolution of the photon, baryon and cold dark matter fluids up to second order in perturbation theory. These equations allow to follow the time evolution of the cosmic microwave background anisotropies at all angular scales from the early epoch, when the cosmological perturbations were generated, to the present, through the recombination era.

Problem book on cosmology that includes its spectacular recent achievements. There are over 1000 problems, covering topics from the dynamics of the expanding Universe and CMB to cosmology beyond the Lambda-CDM model and holography.

Two main questions of modern cosmology are still to be answered: What is the nature of dark matter and dark energy? This book attempts to understand these questions while giving some of the most promising advances in modern cosmology.

Cosmography is in fact a kinematics of cosmological expansion. The effectiveness of cosmography lies in the fact that it allows, based on the observations, to perform a rigid selection of models that do not contradict the cosmological principle.

This text aims to give a pedagogical introduction into the main concepts of the theory of structure formation in the universe. The text is suited for graduate students of astronomy with a moderate background in general relativity.
