This chapter discusses the physics of relic neutrinos with detailed treatment of neutrino decoupling, electron-positron annihilation, neutrino temperature, energy density of light massive neutrinos, energy density of heavy neutrinos, Big-Bang nucleosynthesis, large-scale structure formation (baryonic matter, cold dark matter, and hot dark matter), global fits of cosmological data, number of neutrinos (the limit from CMBR, and the limit from CMBR and LSS, and limit from BBN), and neutrino asymmetry (the limit from CMBR and LSS, and the limit from BBN).

Keywords:   relic neutrinos, neutrino decoupling, Big-Bang nucleosynthesis, large-scale structure formation, baryonic matter, cold dark matter, hot dark matter, number of neutrinos, neutrino asymmetry
