Research Area: COSMOLOGY AND THE EARLY UNIVERSE

Topics covered in this research area

Subjects in this research area aim at understanding the dark contents of the Universe (Dark Matter and Dark Energy) with the goal of understanding its expansion history since the Big Bang.

  • Type Ia supernovae as probes of Dark Energy
  • Type II supernovae as extragalactic distance indicators (Hubble constant)
  • X-ray clusters and the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect
  • Weak lensing and the large-scale distribution of Dark Matter
  • Cosmology with the European Extremeley Large Telescope (E-ELT)
