Over the past two decades Cosmology has increasingly become a precision science. That the Universe is expanding was an astonishing discovery. Now we know its details to unprecedented precision. An expanding Universe also implied an extremely compact state in the past, and therefore very high temperature.

Baryogenesis: A small review of the big picture

I schematically, and very lightly, review some ideas that fuel model building in the field of baryogenesis. Due to limitations of space, and my expertise, this mini-review is incomplete and biased

A two boundary quantum mechanics incorporating a big bang/big crunch universe is carefully considered. After a short motivation of the concept we address the central question how a proposed a-causal

These lectures provide a pedagogical introduction to inflation and the theory of cosmological perturbations generated during inflation which are thought to be the origin of structure in the universe.

Lectures on the theory of cosmological perturbations

The theory of cosmological perturbations has become a cornerstone of modern quantitative cosmology since it is the framework which provides the link between the models of the very early Universe such
