Rossi Lectures: A Physical Approach to Large-scale Structure and Galaxy Formation. 1. The Basic Framework for Structure Formation

The standard model for modern cosmology has had some quite remarkable successes and provides the framework for the study of the origin of large-scale structure and galaxy formation. The basic postulates of the standard cosmological models will be reviewed and confronted critically with the most recent observational data. The standard model appears to be remarkably robust, but it results in a number of challenging problems for fundamental physics, some of them tractable, but others seem very hard, for example, the natire of the dark energy.
