**Description**:

There are fundamental relations between three vast areas of physics: particle physics, cosmology and condensed matter physics. The fundamental links between the first two areas, in other words, between micro-and macro-worlds, have been well established. The main goal of this book is to establish and define the connection of these two fields with condensed matter physics.
