Cosmic Microwave Background radiation: window to early Universe



Cosmic microwave background radiation (CMB) is one of basic means of the study of the early history of the Universe. The main observational properties of CMB and the techniques of their analysis will be reviewed. The current theoretical LCDM model and the set of cosmological parameters will be defined, including in view of the recent results by Planck mission. The lecture will start with a brief introduction by Prof Gurzadyan on the cosmology activity in ANL and participation in international collaborations.
