Dark Energy: constant or time variable? (... and other open questions)
  OKC colloquia

Tuesday 16 June 2015
from 13:15 to 14:15
at FA31
Speaker : Bharat Ratra (Kansas State University)
Abstract : Experiments and observations over the last decade and a half have persuaded cosmologists that (as yet undetected) dark energy is by far the main component of the energy budget of the universe. I review a few simple dark energy models and compare their predictions to observational data, to derive dark energy model-parameter constraints and to test consistency of different data sets. I conclude with a list of open cosmological questions.
