The Shape of the Universe

A special solution of the Maxwell equations is presented, which disposes of the properties the recently postulated Higgs-field must have, if it should not violate already secured perceptions and observations. If both fields are identical remains to be seen at this time. An alternative vacuum propagation function for EM-waves is presented too, describing effects like the cosmologic red-shift and the unexpected results of the SN-cosmology-experiment, completely without dark matter etc.

Here is an introduction to several advanced topics in contemporary cosmology. Topics covered: the thermal history of the universe, linear perturbation theory, theory of CMBR temperature anisotropies and the inflationary generation of perturbation.

A pedagogical introduction to aspects of string cosmology, including the landscape (BPBT) solution to the cosmological constant problem, brane-antibrane inflation, warped compactification, the KKLMMT model, the eta problem of SUGRA models, etc.

We review cosmological inflation and its realization in quantum field theory and string theory. We describe two intertwined approaches to the physics of inflation: from the bottom up in effective field theory, and from the top down in string theory.
