**Cosmology for Particle Physicists**

by U. A. Yajnik

**Publisher**: arXiv 2008**Number of pages**: 63

**Description**:

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.
