Cosmology & Gravity

The Cosmology and Gravitation working group is composed of researchers working across a wide range of areas.  Group members are analyzing data from experiments that observe the cosmic microwave background, the physics of the early universe, the distribution of large scale cosmological structure, galaxies, the intergalactic medium, and the expansion history of the universe with Type Ia supernovae.  Theorists in the group are investigating evidence for both dark matter and dark energy, and their potential implications for general relativity.  Computational theorists are working with simulations of cosmology-related phenomena, such as the reionization of the Universe and galaxy evolution.

The Cosmology and Gravitation working group contains members involved in the following experiments : Intermediate Palomar Transient Factory (iPTF) , Zwicky Transient Factory (ZTF), Planck collaboration, Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), SUbaru Supernovae with Hubble Infrared (SUSHI), Low Frequency Array (LOFAR), Square Kilometer Array (SKA), Wide Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST)

Meetings and Contact

The Cosmology and Gravitation group has bi-weekly meetings with varying content. These include short presentations from group members or visitors and discussions of specific papers.

Organizers : Garrelt Mellema(garrelt@astro.su.se), Edvard Mörtsell (edvard@fysik.su.se), Jon Gudmundsson (jon.gudmundsson@fysik.su.se), Martina Gerbino (martina.gerbino@fysik.su.se)
