The power spectrum of fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) depends on most of the key cosmological parameters. Accurate future measurements of this power spectrum might therefore allow us to determine h, Omega, Omega_b, Lambda, n, T/S, etc, with hitherto unprecedented accuracy. In these lecture notes, which are intended to be readable without much prior CMB knowledge, I review the various physical processes that generate CMB fluctuations, focusing on how changes in the… 
Small-scale anisotropies: The final frontier
In the next few years it will be possible to make maps of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) with sufficient resolution to determine the type of Universe in which we live. The MAP (NASA) and
Gold in the Doppler Hills: Cosmological Parameters in the Microwave Background
Research on the cosmic microwave background (CMB) is progressing rapidly. New experimental groups are popping up and two new satellites will be launched. The current enthusiasm to measure
The CMB - Contemporary Measurements and Cosmology
Since the discovery of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) in 1965, characterization of the CMB anisotropy angular power spectrum has become somewhat of a holy grail for experimental cosmology.

TACMB-1: The Theory of Anisotropies in the Cosmic Microwave Background (Bibliographic Resource Letter)
Author(s): White, Martin; Cohn, JD | Abstract: This Resource Letter provides a guide to the literature on the theory of anisotropies in the cosmic microwave background. Journal articles, web pages,
A MM-WAVE INTERFEROMETER FOR STUDIES OF THE COSMIC MICROWAVE BACKGROUND ANISOTROPY
The small angular scale, or high `, component of the Cosmic Microwave Background anisotropy spectrum contains cosmological information about the early universe. In particular, the angular power
A Quadratic Estimator for Statistical Anisotropy in the Cosmic Microwave Background
The standard model of cosmology has proven to be a great success. Through measurements of the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation, cosmologists have been able to constrain parameters such as the
The Nature of Primordial Perturbations in the Light of CMB Observations
The universe is filled with nearly isotropic cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation, which has a blackbody spectrum of temperature T ≈ 2.73K. In addition, there are tiny direction dependent
Spatial gradients in the cosmological constant
It is possible that there may be differences in the fundamental physical parameters from one side of the observed universe to the other. I show that the cosmological constant is likely to be the most
Bayesian Analysis of Hemispherical Power Asymmetry in the Cosmic Microwave Background
Motivated by the recent results of Hansen et al. concerning a noticeable hemispherical power asymmetry in the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) data on small angular scales, we revisit the
