## Resources

- Introductory Slides
- 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
- Slides on Big Bang Nucleosynthesis
- Slides on the Ising Model (Illustration of a phase transition)
- Slides on Cosmic Defects
- Slides on Dark Energy
- Dark Energy Task Force report and follow up work
- Additional reading on Dark Energy
- Cosmology with a primordial scaling field (related to HW5)
- Phenomenology of a realistic accelerating universe using only Planck-scale physics (related to HW5)
- Dynamics of Dark Energy (review article on quintessence models).
- Dark Energy and the Accelerating Universe (review article about dark energy)

- My Les Houches slides on Inflation
- 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 They are mostly superseded by the Les Houches lectures, but for some topics, such as the "arrow of time basics" section they go into more depth.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.
- Inflation, Tuning and Measure (Slides from the 2015 "CosmoCruise" conferee, related to Les Houches Part 2)
- Origin of probabilities and their application to the multiverse (2015 talk, related to Les Houches Part 3)
