Abstract

Cosmology, in the broadest sense of the word, is that branch of learning which treats the universe as an ordered system. The name is derived from the Greek Koσμoς (“order”, “harmony”, “the world”), plus λóγoς (“word”, “discourse”).This term is usually linked to a description of the salient features of the observed universe, in terms of such categories as space, time, matter, structure and gravitation. In these lectures we use the term cosmology in connection with problems concerning the origin and structure of the universe: namely in connection with cosmogony and astrophysics.
