Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 70

Description:
A central topic in these lectures is the 'theory of cosmological perturbations', the theory which describes the generation of inhomogeneities in the very early universe and their evolution until the current time. The theory is applied to three classes of models of the very early universe.

Ekpyrotic and cyclic cosmologies provide theories of the very early and of the very late universe. In these models, the big bang is described as a collision of branes - and thus the big bang is not the beginning of time.

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.
