Abstract
The aim of the school is to bring together PhD students, Post-docs and researchers with interests in the new approaches and trends in Theoretical Cosmology. In particular, the lectures will be devoted to the so called back reaction in cosmology, the cosmic acceleration and the theory of cosmological perturbations. The lectures are also devoted to the formation of INFN researchers.


Topics
- Back reaction and coarse-grained cosmology

- Cosmic acceleration and dark energy models

- The gauge-covariant approach to the cosmological perturbations

- Scalar fields and dark energy
