THE STANDARD COSMOLOGICAL MODEL
P. J. E. Peebles

ABSTRACT. We have a well-established standard model for cosmology and
prospects for considerable additions from work in progress.
I offer a list of elements of the standard model, comments on
controversies in the interpretation of the evidence in
support of this model, and assessments of the directions
extensions of the standard model seem to be taking.
