Studying Cosmology Lectures

  1. Feb 19, 2017 #1
    I want to learn cosmolgy very much,Like from the begining,Proper distance comoving distance how can we measure them then friedmann equations etc.
    I know leonard susskind lectures but he is describing too general,I want more detail. Is there any other good video lectures...(I couldnt find) a book will also fine but video lectures are best for me.

    I sense a wide gap between what you bring up here and threads like
    I really admire your ambition, but without a solid foundation you'll be in trouble sooner or later. Most likely sooner. My advice: study the physics curriculum at your (or any other) university and notice they all do classical mechanics, classical electrostatics, classical electrodynamics, optics, special relativity, introductory quantum mechanics, and build on those. At your age you can pick up things quickly and you don't seem to realize that laying sound foundations under a whacky building is nearly impossible.

    Furthermore @ZapperZ 's advice is sound: work on exercises as much as you can and don't think they are wasting your time for a moment!

    If he's struggling with linear momentum and rotational motion, the Perimeter Scholars International lectures are too advanced for him.
