Abstract

Gravitational waves and lenses were among the earliest predictions of general relativity. I demonstrate here how both these phenomena can, in conjunction with newly discovered astrophysical objects, be used to test fundamental aspects of early universe cosmology, including (a) scenarios for galaxy formation, and (b) nonadiabatic expansion before and after nucleosynthesis.
