Digitaler Kurs

This course assumes some familiarity with statistical tests. A previous course in General Relativity is *not* required.

Exercises will partially be carried out through python notebooks.
Structure / topics / contents
The course will cover the following topics:

- Introduction to General Relativity, the Big Bang model and the Lambda-Cold Dark Matter (LCDM) Universe.
- Fundamental observations of the Universe at large scales.
- Dark energy and the accelerated expansion rate.
- Big bang nucleosynthesis, inflation and other early Universe physics.
- The cosmic microwave background (CMB) and structure formation.

We will continuously focus on how theoretical concepts are related to astrophysical observations.
