This is a review article for The Review of Particle Physics 2010 (aka the Particle Data Book). It forms a compact review of knowledge of the cosmological parameters at the beginning of 2010. Topics included are Parametrizing the Universe; Extensions to the standard model; Probes; Bringing observations together; Outlook for the future.

Cosmological constraints for the Cosmic Defect theory
The cosmic defect theory has been confronted with four observational constraints: primordial nuclear species abundances emerging from the big bang nucleosynthesis; large scale structure formation inExpand
Comment on Arxiv:1009.2266v2, "On the Fine Structure Constant in the Machian Universe"
We consider a recent attempt by Gogberashvili and Kanatchikov to connect the value of the fine structure constant α with cosmological parameters. After pointing out an error in the authors' account,Expand
Cosmological backgrounds of gravitational waves and eLISA/NGO: phase transitions, cosmic strings and other sources
We review several cosmological backgrounds of gravitational waves accessible to direct-detection experiments, with a special emphasis on those backgrounds due to first-order phase transitions andExpand
Cosmic expansion from boson and fermion fields
This paper consists in analyzing an action that describes boson and fermion fields minimally coupled to the gravity and a common matter field. The self-interaction potentials of the fields are notExpand
Matter and antimatter in the universe
We review observational evidence for a matter-antimatter asymme- try in the early universe, which leads to the remnant matter density we observe today. We also discuss bounds on the presence ofExpand
Observable Features of Tachyon-Dominated Cosmology
A Friedman-Robertson-Walker cosmological model dominated by tachyonic---faster-than-light---dark matter can exhibit features similar to those of a standard dark energy/dark matter or Lambda-CDMExpand
Cosmic Acceleration from Causal Backreaction in a Smoothly Inhomogeneous Universe
A phenomenological formalism is presented in which the apparent acceleration of the universe is generated by large-scale structure formation, thus eliminating the coincidence and magnitudeExpand
Generic scenarios of the accelerating Universe
Recent astronomical observations strongly indicate that the current Universe is undergoing an accelerated phase of its expansion. If the Universe evolution is described by the FRW model then theExpand
The Nature of Massive Neutrinos
The compelling experimental evidences for oscillations of solar, reactor, atmospheric, and accelerator neutrinos imply the existence of 3-neutrino mixing in the weak charged lepton current. TheExpand
Galaxy clustering using the GAMA survey
We present a study of the clustering of galaxies in the local Universe (z < 0.4) using the SDSS and GAMA galaxy surveys. Using GAMA spectroscopic redshift we construct a large photometric redshiftExpand


The early Universe
In the past few years one of the most exciting areas of research in physics has been the interdisciplinary field of cosmology and particle physics. The NSF's Institute for Theoretical Physics inExpand
The Primordial Density Perturbation
The origin and evolution of the primordial perturbation is the key to understanding structure formation in the earliest stages of the Universe. It carries clues to the types of physical phenomenaExpand
Cosmological Constraints from the Clustering of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey DR7 Luminous Red Galaxies
We present the power spectrum of the reconstructed halo density field derived from a sample of luminous red galaxies (LRGs) from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Seventh Data Release (DR7). TheExpand
First-Year Sloan Digital Sky Survey-II Supernova Results: Hubble Diagram and Cosmological Parameters
We present measurements of the Hubble diagram for 103 Type Ia supernovae (SNe) with redshifts 0.04 < z < 0.42, discovered during the first season (Fall 2005) of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey-IIExpand
Baryon Acoustic Oscillations in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 7 Galaxy Sample
The spectroscopic Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Data Release 7 (DR7) galaxy sample represents the final set of galaxies observed using the original SDSS target selection criteria. We analyse theExpand

I am writing with a simple plea to balance the voluminous articles about treatment in your journal with a modicum of information about nature and caring effects to rekindle the perception of physicians as healers, not only treaters, who relish the gifts of nature, and foster the humanistic aspect of medicine that has thrived for millennia.
