Primordial Black Holes (PBHs) serve as a unique probe to the physics of the early Universe, particularly inflation. In light of this, we study the formation of PBHs by the collapse of overdense
Inflationary cosmology, phase transitions and primordial power spectra
We present the results of research into inflationary cosmology. This consists firstly of a basic overview of the inflationary scenario, including the currently accepted model of inflation as being
Aspects of inflation and the very early universe
Until recently our knowledge of the primordial curvature perturbation was relatively modest. Ever since COBE delivered its map of data we know the scalar spectrum of primordial perturbations is
Constraining inflation through joint observations of the primordial gravitational wave background
The standard cosmological model leaves many questions unanswered. An early period of accelerated expansion of the Universe, referred to as inflation, resolves these issues. It provides a means to
Cosmology and Gravitation: the grand scheme for High-Energy Physics
These lectures describe how the Standard Model of cosmology ($\Lambda$CDM) has developped, based on observational facts but also on ideas formed in the context of the theory of fundamental
Spherical collapse in coupled quintessence with a ΛCDM background
In this work we study the growth of cold dark matter density perturbations in the nonlinear regime on a conformally coupled quintessence model in which the background is designed to mimic a
Uniformity of Cosmic Microwave Background as a Non-Inflationary Geometrical Effect
The conventional $\Lambda$CDM cosmological model supplemented by the inflation concept describes the Universe very well. However, there are still a few concerns: new Planck data impose constraints on
Out of Equilibrium Fields in Inflationary Dynamics. Density Fluctuations
The energy and time scales during the inflationary stage of the universe calls for an out of equilibrium quantum field treatment. Moreover, the high energy densities involved (∼1/g ∼ 1012) make


Very large scale structure in an open cosmology of cold dark matter and baryons
The standard cosmology of cold dark matter (CDM) in a flat universe with Gaussian, scale-invariant fluctuations, which is so successful in explaining the major properties of galaxies and their

It is found that the inflationary scenario provides a good starting point for a theory of large-scale structure in the universe provided the dark matter is a combination of cold plus (10--30%) hot components.
The cosmological constant and cold dark matter
THE cold dark matter (CDM) model1–4 for the formation and distribution of galaxies in a universe with exactly the critical density is theoretically appealing and has proved to be durable, but recent
Isocurvature cold dark matter fluctuations
According to Preskill et al. (1983), the axion field represents a particularly attractive candidate for the dark matter in the universe. In many respects it behaves like other forms of cold dark
Large-scale structure in a universe with mixed hot and cold dark matter
A UNIVERSE whose density is dominated by cold dark matter (CDM) has been considered the standard model for large-scale structure formation1, but it has had difficulty in matching the relatively quiet
Microwave Anisotropies in the Light of COBE
The recent COBE measurement of anisotropies in the cosmic microwave background and the recent South Pole experiment of Gaier et al. offer an excellent opportunity to probe cosmological theories. We
The spectrum of cosmological density fluctuations and nature of dark matter
COSMIC structure is thought to have arisen by the gravitational amplification of small density fluctuations in the early Universe. The evolution of fluctuations with specified magnitude and spectrum
A hydrodynamic treatment of the tilted cold dark matter cosmological scenario
The evolution of structure in a postrecombination Friedmann-Robertson-Walker universe containing both gaseous baryons and cold dark matter (CDM) is studied by means of an Eulerian code coupled with a
Inflationary universe: A possible solution to the horizon and flatness problems
The standard model of hot big-bang cosmology requires initial conditions which are problematic in two ways: (1) The early universe is assumed to be highly homogeneous, in spite of the fact that
Cold dark matter. 2: Spatial and velocity statistics
We examine high-resolution gravitational N-body simulations of the omega = 1 cold dark matter (CDM) model in order to determine whether there is any normalization of the initial density fluctuation
