The Theoretical Minimum V: Cosmology

Course Description

This is a lecture series from The Theoretical Minimum, a collection of lectures on classical and modern physics given by Stanford University professor Leonard Susskind, renowned theoretical physics and expert on string theory and modern cosmology. This course will concentrate on cosmology, the science of the origin and development of the universe. Along the way, students will take a close look at the Big Bang, the geometry of space-time, inflationary cosmology, cosmic microwave background, dark matter, dark energy, the anthropic principle, and the string theory landscape.
