Cosmology

Cosmology is the study of the large scale structure of the Universe, as well as its dynamics. Our group has been involved in the study and development of cosmological models, in particular to explain the accelerated phases of the cosmological evolution, dubbed inflationary phases.

For our latest developments/activities in this area, please see the listing below.

We can all tell when a movie of some everyday event, such as a kettle boiling or a glass shattering, is run backwards. Similarly, we all feel that we can remember the past and affect the future, not vice versa.
