Some lecture notes may appear later and will be made available here
Kolb & Turner "The Early Universe" Westview Press Dodelson "Modern Cosmology" Academic Press
the PDG Reviews on Astroparticle and Cosmology, in particular the one on "Big Bang Cosmology" and "Dark Matter" on http://pdg.lbl.gov/2017/mobile/reviews/index.html
my lectures will be quite pedagogical and in principle all the background will be provided there.
Anyhow, some familiarity with the 3 references below would certainly be useful.
1) Zinn-Justin, “Quantum Field Theory and Critical Phenomena”, 4th Edition.
Chapters 39-43, in particular chapter 42.
2) Section 3 of E. Witten, “Analytic Continuation Of Chern-Simons Theory,’’ arXiv:1001.2933 [hep-th].
3) M. Serone, G. Spada and G. Villadoro, “The Power of Perturbation Theory,’’ arXiv:1702.04148 [hep-th].
