Nuclear and Particle Physics in the Early Universe

  • D. N. Schramm
Part of the NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 104)


In these lectures a review will be made of various events in the early universe where nuclear and elementary particle physics effects come into play. Several events will only briefly be mentioned, since they have been reviewed previously. However, some detail will be given to new results on big bang nucleosynthesis, massive neutrinos and inflationary scenarios.
