Physics and Astronomy Colloquium – Dragan Huterer
October 29, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
UNC-CH Physics and Astronomy Colloquium
Dragan Huterer, University of Michigan
“New Views of the Universe”
I will discuss how progress in cosmology over the past decade has improved our understanding of dark matter, dark energy, and the physics of the early universe. I will particularly concentrate on the developments in mapping out the expansion rate of the universe and the growth of density fluctuations in order to better understand dark energy and, eventually, identify the physics responsible for universe’s accelerated expansion. The talk will provide basic background and discuss exciting new developments at a level accessible to graduate students.
