Determination of the grade according to progress during the semester.
Prerequisites:
 
(
  Quantum Mechanics 3 
118122
 
  
and
 Statistical Mechanics 2 
118129
 
  
and
 Introduction to General Relativity 
118130
 ) 
Primordial Fluctuations and Gravity Waves, Perturbed Spacetime and Gauge Choice, EnergyMomentum Conservation, Photons: Propagation, Boltzmann Equation and Collision Term, Temperature Anisotropies: BaryonPhoton Fluid, Tight Coupling Limit, Acoustic Oscillations, Silk Damping, Polarization Anisotropies: SpinWeighted Spherical Harmonics, E and B Mode Polarization, Integral Solutions, Angular Power Spectra and Cosmological Constraints, Secondary Anisotropies and Spectral Distortions.
Learning Outcomes
At the End of This Course, the Student Will Have a Much Deeper Understanding of the Origin and Growth of Fluctuations in the Early Universe. This Is Essential for the Formation of Galaxies and Cosmic Structures in the PresentDay Universe.
The Student Will Also Know What Current Cmb Experiments Measure and How This Can Be Used to Constrain Cosmological Models. the Student Will Also Understand the Basic Ingredients of Publicly Available Boltzmann Codes and Be Able to Run Them Himself in Order to Produce Theoretical Predictions for Observed Cmb Power Spectra. Finally, the Student Will Have the Required Technical Background to Understand Research Papers on This Rapidly Evolving Topic.
