Galaxies and Cosmology
San Diego State University
Here we consider the universe on the grandest of scales,
focusing on cosmology (extragalactic distance scale, Hubble expansion,
Newtonian and relativistic cosmology, early universe and cosmic microwave
background) and galaxies (morphology, contents, photometric properties). A
particular emphasis will be placed on how (very) recent observations are being
used to constrain cosmological models. Thanks for a great semester! Last Updated 2017.09.09 By Douglas Leonard

The full course website was managed by the Blackboard Learning Management system, and was (regrettably) available only to registered students in the class.
Thanks for a great semester!
