Cosmology for Particle Physicists
by U. A. Yajnik
Publisher: arXiv 2008
Number of pages: 63
We begin with a brief recapitulation of General Relativity, and the Standard Model of Cosmology. This is followed by lectures on important signatures of the remote past: (i) inflation, (ii) density perturbations leading to galaxy formation, (iii) study of hot and cold relics decoupled from the remaining constituents, some of which can be candidates for Dark Matter, (iv) baryon asymmetry of the Universe.

The authors review the current standard model for the evolution of the Universe from an early inflationary epoch to the complex hierarchy of structure seen today. The text concludes with discussion of some open questions in cosmology.
by Andrei Linde - arXiv
Linde offers a thorough investigation of modern cosmology and its relation to elementary particle physics, including a large introductory section containing a complete discussion of inflationary cosmology for those not yet familiar with the theory.

The author presents the pedagogical introduction to relativistic astrophysics and cosmology, which is based on computational and graphical resources of Maple 6. The knowledge of basics of general relativity and differential geometry is supposed.

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.
