Landoldt-Bornstein: Particle Cosmology in Elementary Particles: Physics and Methods (Ed. H Schopper)
Ann. Rev. Nuc. Part. Sci.: Phase Transitions in the Early and Present Universe
The evolution of the universe is the ultimate laboratory for studying fundamental physics across energy scales that span approximately 25 orders of magnitude. The standard models of cosmology and particle physics provide the basic understanding of the early and present universe and predict a series of phase transitions that occurred in succession during the universe's expansion and cooling history.
Scientific American: Is the Universe Out of Tune? [ COSMOLOGY ]
Like the discord of key instruments in a skillful orchestra quietly playing the wrong piece, mysterious discrepancies have arisen between theory and observations of the "music" of the cosmic microwave background. Either the measurements are wrong or the universe is stranger than we thought
