About the Authors
  • The role that neutrinos have played in the evolution of the Universe is the focus of one of the most fascinating research areas that has stemmed from the interplay between cosmology, astrophysics and particle physics. In this self-contained book, the authors bring together all aspects of the role of neutrinos in cosmology, spanning from leptogenesis to primordial nucleosynthesis, their role in CMB and structure formation, to the problem of their direct detection. The book starts by guiding the reader through aspects of fundamental neutrino physics, such as the standard cosmological model and the statistical mechanics in the expanding Universe, before discussing the history of neutrinos in chronological order from the very early stages until today. This timely book will interest graduate students and researchers in astrophysics, cosmology and particle physics, who work with either a theoretical or experimental focus.

    • The first consolidated guide to the role that neutrinos play in cosmology and the evolution of the Universe, and how their properties influence cosmological and astrophysical observations
    • A self-contained text that starts with an overview of the fundamentals of neutrino physics before discussing the history of neutrinos in chronological order, as events likely occurred during the Universe's evolution
    • Emphasis is given to the main physical aspects of each topic, rather than to providing a complete review of all possible models that are present in the current literature
