A pedagogical treatment of cosmological modeling and inflationary cosmology, suitable for graduate students. By Scott Watson (Brown University).
Introductory Review of Cosmic Inflation
Lecture notes by Shinji Tsujikawa (Univ. of Tokyo) about the basic concepts of inflation, the generation of density perturbations, and the mechanism for reheating after inflation. Based on lectures given at The Second Tah Poe School on Cosmology in 2003. (April 28, 2003)
A Status Review of Inflationary Cosmology
Thorough review of inflationary cosmology which focuses on two areas of recent progress: reheating and the quantum theory of cosmological perturbations. Suitable for graduate students and researchers. (January 11, 2001)
