Introductory Notes on Particle Physics and Cosmology
In the following pages you will find notes on two and a half of the four lectures I gave at the St. Croix summer school of 1990, taken by Michel Lefebvre and Harrison Prosper. The purpose of these lectures was to introduce students in experimental physics to some of the central concepts in cosmology, and perhaps inspire them to consider taking up some of the experimental challenges it poses. I think it is very important for young experimentalists, even (perhaps especially) those who consider their primary interest to be particle physics, to know something about cosmology. This is for two reasons.
