This Review summarizes much of particle physics. We list, evaluate, and average measured properties of gauge bosons, leptons, quarks, mesons, and baryons. We also summarize searches for hypothetical particles such as Higgs bosons and heavy neutrinos.

Book cover: Cosmology for Particle PhysicistsCosmology for Particle Physicists
by - arXiv
We begin with a recapitulation of General Relativity, and the Standard Model of Cosmology. This is followed by lectures on inflation, density perturbations, study of hot and cold relics decoupled from the remaining constituents, and baryon asymmetry.
