This book records the proceedings of the Second Canary Islands Winter School of Astrophysics at which eight eminent figures in cosmology gathered to discuss research in this exciting field. They portray a vision of modern cosmology that ranges from the most recent ideas on the early universe, discussed by V.N. Lukash and I.D. Novikov, to current studies about large scale structure in the universe presented by B. Jones and J. Einasto. Hubert Reeves and Bernard Pagel pay special attention to the theoretical and observational aspects of primordial nucleosynthesis and to the microwave background radiation that is discussed by J.L Sanz.
