Abstract

In these three lectures, I will review some of the major topics which concern both particle physics and cosmology. In the first lecture, I will give a general overview of the standard cosmological Big Bang model and briefly go over Big Bang nucleosynthesis as well as Big Bang baryosynthesis. In the second lecture, I will review the inflationary model with particular emphasis on supersymmetry. In the final lecture I will discuss the dark matter problems which confront cosmology today and their demands on elementary particle physics.
