The previous chapter was devoted to the main observational evidence on the basis of our comprehension of the Universe and to their main theoretical implications. Some theoretical and phenomenological topics of particular relevance for current cosmology with clear observational counterparts are rediscussed here, with a better attention to the corresponding concepts of fundamental physics and, to a certain extent, to the mathematical formalism at the basis of their formulation. The presentation of the various themes is organized almost according to their relevance at increasing cosmic time, although the physical processes considered and the propagation of the generated photons to the observer occurred during various cosmic epochs.
