**Introduction to Cosmology**

by David H Lyth

**Publisher**: arXiv 1993**Number of pages**: 53

**Description**:

These notes form an introduction to cosmology with special emphasis on large scale structure, the cmb anisotropy and inflation. In some places a basic familiarity with particle physics is assumed, but otherwise no special knowledge is needed.

**Inflation and String Theory**

by

**Daniel Baumann, Liam McAllister**-

**arXiv**

We review cosmological inflation and its realization in quantum field theory and string theory. We describe two intertwined approaches to the physics of inflation: from the bottom up in effective field theory, and from the top down in string theory.

**Cosmology for Particle Physicists**

by

**U. A. Yajnik**-

**arXiv**

We begin with a recapitulation of General Relativity, and the Standard Model of Cosmology. This is followed by lectures on inflation, density perturbations, study of hot and cold relics decoupled from the remaining constituents, and baryon asymmetry.

**The Cosmological Constant**

by

**Sean M. Carroll**-

**arXiv**

This is a review of the physics and cosmology of the cosmological constant. The author presents an overview of cosmology in the presence of a cosmological constant, observational constraints on its magnitude, and the physics of a small vacuum energy.
