AbstractDuring the semester there is a colloquium every week on actual research by the members of the Institute of Astrophysics. In general, colloquia are 20 minutes excluding discussion. They start with a general introduction, review techniques and methods of general interest and present results. The goal is to inform all members of the institute about current work.
ObjectiveA colloquium is a combination of a 10 minute conference paper preceded by a 10 minute widely understandable introduction. The discussion is limited to 10 minutes, but may continue privately. The research colloquia are announced in the ETH Vorlesungsverzeichnis, but are not publicized in the Wochenbulletin of the Department of Physics. All colloquia are given in English.

AbstractHow did cosmological structures arise from the nearly homogeneous state of the Universe after the Big Bang? This course will cover the physics of the formation of structures in the Universe. After a review of the evolution of the smooth universe, the evolution of cosmological perturbations will be studied along with their initial conditions and current observational probes.
ObjectiveThe goal of this course is to provide an understanding of the physics of cosmological structure formation, and highlight current research topics.
Prerequisites / NoticeCredits or current enrollment in Astrophysics I and II is recommended but not required.
