Celestial Expansion - Encompasses the big bang and big crunch theories, the theory of dark matter, and other concepts relating to the universe's expansion.
Cosmic Topology - General relativity does not allow one to specify the topology of space, leaving the possibility that space is multi- rather than simply- connected. This paper reviews the mathematical properties of multi-connected spaces, and the different tools to classify them and to analyse their properties.
Cosmological Constant - Recently two different groups have measured the apparent brightness of supernovae with redshifts near z = 1. Based on this data the old idea of a cosmological constant is making a comeback.
The Cosmological Constant - The following pages present a discussion of the role the cosmological constant plays in modern cosmology. They are designed to offer an overview of how the cosmological constant alters standard cosmology, and to discuss whether a non-zero cosmological constant exists today.
Cosmological Models - The aim of this set of lectures is a systematic presentation of a 1+3 covariant approach to studying the geometry, dynamics, and observational properties of relativistic cosmological models.
Cosmology - A collection of reviews, figures, and research papers on inflationary cosmology.
Cosmology - From the Official String Theory Website. Basic and advanced tutorials on the age and structure of the universe, the Big Bang, and the relation of string theory to cosmology.
Cosmology and Cosmologists - A collection of articles explaining cosmology and the theory of relativity, as well as biographies of noted cosmologists.
Cosmology from Topological Defects - Lecture Notes delivered at the Xth Brazilian School on Cosmology and Gravitation, Mangaratiba, Rio de Janeiro, July 29 - August 9, 2002.
An Exposition on Inflationary Cosmology - In this paper, the fundamentals of modern cosmology for an isotropic and homogeneous space-time will be reviewed. Other issues suggesting a more general theory are presented and inflation is introduced as a resolution to this conundrum.
From Newton's Laws to the Wheeler-deWitt equation - This is a pedagogical paper which explains some ideas in cosmology at a level accessible to undergraduate students. Following standard quantization procedures the Wheeler-DeWitt equation in the minisuperspace approximation is derived for empty and non-empty universes.
Introduction to Cosmology - Contains report of a seminar on a model cosmology. Preliminary introduction to General Relativity with application to cosmology.
Introduction to Cosmology - 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.
Introductory review of cosmic inflation - These lecture notes provide an introduction to cosmic inflation. In particular the basic concepts of inflation, generation of density perturbations, and reheating after inflation.
Minkowski Functionals in Cosmology - Minkowski functionals provide a novel tool to characterize the large-scale galaxy distribution in the Universe. Here we give a brief tutorial on the basic features of these morphological measures and indicate their practical application for simulation data and galaxy redshift catalogues as examples.
MIT Cosmology - MIT's cosmology site offers links to research locally and around the world, as well as related departments elsewhere.
Numerical Simulations in Cosmology I: Methods - This lecture gives a short introduction to different methods used in cosmology. The focus is on major features of N-body simulations: equations, main numerical techniques, effects of resolution, and methods of halo identification.
Particle Aspects of Cosmology and Baryogenesis - An introduction to particle aspects of cosmology with particular refrence to primordial nucleosynthesis, dark matter and baryogenesis is provided. In particular, various scenarios-GUT baryogenesis, electroweak baryogenesis and baryogenesis through leptogenesis are reviewed.
A Quantum Leap for Cosmology - A theory that unites quantum mechanics and general relativity claims that there was no first moment in time, but it still agrees with the predictions of classical cosmology.
A Review of Inflationary Cosmology - The aim of this lecture is to highlight two areas of recent progress in inflationary cosmology, namely reheating and the quantum theory of cosmological perturbations.
