This lecture gives a short introduction to different methods used in cosmology. The focus is on major features of Nbody simulations: equations, main numerical techniques, effects of resolution, and methods of halo identification.
Articles about the Universe, Cosmology, Quantum Mechanics, Relativity & collection of some FAQ's.
Progress in early Universe cosmology, including strings, extra dimensions, inflation, phase transitions, and baryogenesis, is reviewed.
A set of postrscript lecture notes by George Lazarides on the basic principles of cosmology.
This is a pedagogical paper which explains some ideas in cosmology at a level accessible to undergraduate students. Following standard quantization procedures the WheelerDeWitt equation in the minisuperspace approximation is derived for empty and nonempty universes.
Minkowski functionals provide a novel tool to characterize the largescale 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.
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.
A short review of recent results on exact solutions in multidimensional cosmology
A review of current unsolved problems in mathematical 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.
