Gravity at the horizon: from the cosmic dawn to ultra-large scales
  OKC - Theory Working Group

Thursday 18 February 2016
from 13:15 to 14:15
at Nordita east seminar room (132:028)
Speaker : Miguel Zumalacarregui (Nordita)
Abstract : Recent advances in cosmology provide both the motivation and the data to probe gravity on the largest scales available to observation. I will revise the landscape of gravitational theories, focusing on modern scalar-tensor theories and their cosmological implications. Then I will present the ongoing effort to test gravity in novel regimes such as the early universe, non-linear effects and ultra-large scales. I will also introduce the hi_class code (www.hiclass-code.net), which is central to this program.
