TITLE Early-Universe Boot-camp Part III: The truth about bounces ABSTRACT This will be the third part of the early-universe boot-camp in which we will focus on cosmologies that replace a big bang with a big bounce. We will explain how, in these scenarios, the large-scale structure of the universe is determined during a contracting phase before the bounce and will describe the recent development of the first well-behaved cosmological bounce solutions.
