**Particle Physics and Inflationary Cosmology**

by Andrei Linde

**Publisher**: arXiv 2005**ISBN/ASIN**: 3718604906**Number of pages**: 270

**Description**:

This volume is a complete and systematic monograph on inflationary cosmology and cosmological phase transitions. Dr. Linde, a primary developer of these theories, 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.

**arXiv**

We review cosmological inflation and its realization in quantum field theory and string theory. We describe two intertwined approaches to the physics of inflation: from the bottom up in effective field theory, and from the top down in string theory.
