This learning module provides an introduction to modern cosmology and how it explains some experimental facts about our Universe. We start by discussing the homogenous universe described by the FRW spacetime, explain the various components of the matter content, touch on Big Bang Nucleosynthesis, CMB, dark matter, and dark energy. We also discuss motivations for introducing inflation and how it predicts the right kind of fluctuations that lead to the structure formation in our Universe. -

The main goal of this learning module is to discuss phase transitions and critical phenomena in statistical physics. We introduce the ideas of mean-field theory and renormalization group and exploit them to calculate the critical exponents for the Ising model. More advanced topics concern the models with continuous symmetry, topological phase transitions, as well as Monte Carlo simulations. -
