Rossi Lectures: A Physical Approach to Large-scale Structure and Galaxy Formation. 2. The Physics of Large Scale Structure and Galaxy Formation

The physics of the processes involved in the formation large scale structures in the Universe is described. It is demonstrated how the standard model of structure formation has a number of quite remarkable successes. The consistency with observations of temperature fluctuations in the Cosmic Microwave Background is very impressive and has led to the accurate determination of cosmological parameters. This success means that even small deviations from the standard picture can contain significant new physics. A number of examples of these will be given.
