Neutron stars provide a fertile environment for exploring superfluidity under extreme conditions. It is not surprising that Cooper pairing occurs in dense matter since nucleon pairing is observed in nuclei as energy differences between even-even and odd-even nuclei. Since superfluids and superconductors in neutron stars profoundly affect neutrino emissivities and specific heats, their presence can be observed in the thermal evolution of neutron stars.

In these lectures I review the present status of the so-called Standard Cosmological Model, based on the hot Big Bang Theory and the Inflationary Paradigm. I will make special emphasis on the recent developments in observational cosmology ...

These lectures on non-baryonic dark matter discuss the need for non-baryonic dark matter in light of recent results, and present some of the most popular candidates for non-baryonic dark matter - neutrinos, axions, neutralinos, etc.
