The past several years have seen the emergence of a standard cosmological model, in which small temperature differences in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation on angular scales of the order of a degree are understood to arise from acoustic oscillations in the hot plasma of the early Universe, arising from primordial density fluctuations. Within the context of this model, recent measurements of the temperature fluctuations have led to profound conclusions about the origin, evolution… 
THE COSMIC MICROWAVE BACKGROUND ANISOTROPIES: OPEN PROBLEMS
We present a review of some interesting theoretical and observational aspects of the Cosmic Microwave Background anisotropies. The standard inflationary model presents a simple scenario within which

Probing the Friedmann equation during recombination with future cosmic microwave background experiments
We show that by combining measurements of the temperature and polarization anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background (CMB), future experiments will tightly constrain the expansion rate of the
The cosmic microwave background: observing directly the early universe
The Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) is a relict of the early universe. Its perfect 2.725K blackbody spectrum demonstrates that the universe underwent a hot, ionized early phase; its anisotropy
3 Cosmic Microwave Background Anisotropies
The linear anisotropies in the temperature of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation and its polarization provide a clean picture of fluctuations in the universe some 370 kyr after the big
Physics of the cosmic microwave background anisotropy
Observations of the cosmic microwave background (CMB), especially of its frequency spectrum and its anisotropies, both in temperature and in polarization, have played a key role in the development of
Ionization History of the Cosmic Plasma in the Light of the Recent Cosmic Background Imager and Future Planck Data
This paper is devoted to the methods of the determination of cosmological parameters and distortions of ionization history from recent cosmic microwave background (CMB) observations. We show that the
A clear view of the primordial Universe
Observations of temperature anisotropies in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) and measurements of the large-scale structure of matter have established the standard Lambda cold dark matter model
Measuring the Polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background with BICEP3
Inflation, a period of accelerated expansion in the early Universe, is postulated to answer the horizon, flatness and monopole problems in the standard model of the Universe. This inflationary
