The University of Valencia, in collaboration with IFIC, organizes this PhD course which will be given by Jose Beltrán Jiménez, Universidad de Salamanca.
Abstract: The course will give a general introduction to the theory of cosmological perturbations starting from a basic level. Emphasis will be put in symmetries with physical consequences. After introducing the general formalism, it will be applied to different inflationary scenarios and the evolution of perturbations during the late time universe. The course will include five 2-hour tutorials on the use of xAct to compute perturbation equations
