Cosmology and Large Scale Structure

In the last two decades, cosmology, the study of the Universe as a whole, has experienced dramatic progress. Several independent observations have resulted in a remarkably accurate determination of the Big Bang model, complemented with an initial period of inflation, that describes the evolution of our Universe over the past 13.8 billion years with only a handful of parameters. We can now undoubtedly say that cosmology has entered a new age of precision. [+]

ICCUB Contribution

One of the main interests at ICCUB is the study of the connection between cosmological observations and the physics behind the standard cosmological model, hoping to shed some light on the “open questions” in cosmology. Cosmology is tackled at the ICCUB through both an observational and a theoretical approach. [+]
