Particle Physics Aspects of Modern Cosmology
by Robert H. Brandenberger
Publisher: arXiv 1997
Number of pages: 70
Modern cosmology has created a tight link between particle physics / field theory and a wealth of new observational data on the structure of the Universe. These lecture notes focus on some of the most important aspects concerning the connection between theory and observations.

In this review we present a thoroughly comprehensive survey of recent work on modified theories of gravity and their cosmological consequences. We cover General Relativity, Scalar-Tensor, Einstein-Aether, Bimetric theories, TeVeS, Galileons, etc.

The main motivations and challenges related with the physics of large-scale magnetic fields are briefly analyzed. The interplay between large-scale magnetic fields and scalar CMB anisotropies is addressed with specific attention on recent progresses.

Two main questions of modern cosmology are still to be answered: What is the nature of dark matter and dark energy? This book attempts to understand these questions while giving some of the most promising advances in modern cosmology.
