# Cosmology Tutorial

Cosmology is the science and study of the origin, current state and the future of the Universe. This field has been revolutionized by many discoveries made during the past century. This tutorial will attempt at explaining the basic cosmology and summarize the discoveries made in this regard. It gives a deep insight into the Big Bang Theory and the attempts made to discover the Extrasolar Planets. The mysterious CMB (Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation) and its anisotropies which have intrigued astronomers for several years has been explained in detail here. This tutorial will be very useful for budding scientists and astronomers.

# Audience

This tutorial is aimed at students and readers who want to be able to understand and appreciate the Cosmological Phenomena we observe in the night sky. It will be of great importance to young astronomers, who wish to explore the night sky for finding astronomical objects.

# Prerequisites

This tutorial requires prior understanding of Basic Astronomy and the Relativity Theory. It will also require you to apply concepts of Basic Physics, Integral and Differential Calculus, and Differential Equations.
