## Resources

High level Slides These are "public lecture" level slides I sometimes show on the first class of the quarter (not planned for 2021)

SDSS (includes fly-through movie of the SDSS galaxy survey)

- FRW notes
*These notes contain all the basic equations for FRW cosmology collected (almost) as concisely as possible. We will discuss these during the first couple of lectures.* - Notes on dimensional analysis
- Handwritten Notes
- 262N1.0 (Particles in equilibrium in the cosmos, updated 4/11/21)
- 262N2.0 (Particles in eqm. continued)
~~262N3.0 (Entropy conservation and Neutrino decoupling)~~(4/14/21: I discovered quite a few typos in this PDF. I've removed the post, and refer you to the lecture notes posted here: Entropy conservation and neutrino decoupling (Web view) in OneNote, which I belive are corrected. (1N pages are only available to enrolled students).

- Slides on Big Bang Nucleosynthesis
- Review article on Big Bang Nucleosynthesis by Keith Olive from 2004 (PDF, Journal)
- Slides on the Ising Model (Illustration of a phase transition)
- Slides on Cosmic Defects
- David Wittman's slides from his 2/5/20 guest lecture on lensing

- My Les Houches slides on Inflation
- These slides (from my November 2019 colloquium at the Niels Bohr Institute) are a more recent version of the Les Houches part 3 slides. I used these for the March 11 and 13 2020 online lectures (pdf, ppt).
*More material on this topic can be found here* - Inflation slides This is a selection of slides I have collected over the years for this course. They are mostly superseded by the Les Houches lectures, but for some topics, such as the "arrow of time basics" section they go into more depth. I will switch back and forth between these and the Les Houches lectures as needed.
