This chapter introduces the standard cosmological model and explains basic general relativity, Robertson–Walker metric (geodesic motion, redshift, Hubble's law, angular diameter-redshift relation, and particle horizon), dynamics of expansion, matter-dominated Universe, radiation-dominated Universe, curvature-dominated Universe, vacuum-dominated Universe, thermodynamics of the early Universe, entropy, decoupling, and cosmic microwave background radiation.

Keywords:   cosmology, general relativity, Robertson–Walker metric, geodesic motion, redshift, Hubble's law, particle horizon, entropy, decoupling, cosmic microwave background radiation
