**Gravitational Wave Experiments and Early Universe Cosmology**

by

**Michele Maggiore**-

**arXiv**

Gravitational-wave experiments with interferometers and with resonant masses can search for stochastic backgrounds of gravitational waves of cosmological origin. We review both experimental and theoretical aspects of the search for these backgrounds.

**Observational Probes of Cosmic Acceleration**

by

**David H. Weinberg, et al.**-

**arXiv**

The accelerating expansion of the universe is the most surprising cosmological discovery in many decades, implying that the universe is dominated by dark energy. We review in detail the most well established methods for making such measurements.

by

**Massimo Giovannini**-

**arXiv**

This text introduces some basic problems arising in gravitation and modern cosmology. All along the discussion the guiding theme is provided by the phenomenological and theoretical properties of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB).

**The Hubble Constant**

by

**Neal Jackson**-

**arXiv**

The author reviews the current state of determinations of the Hubble constant, which gives the length scale of the Universe by relating the velocity of objects to their distance. Many object-based measurements give H0 values of around 72-74km/s/Mpc.
