New Horizons for Modern Cosmology (Workshop) - Jan, 19 2009
The observation of dark energy demonstrates that our well established theories of particle physics and gravity are incomplete if not incorrect. This conference will bring together theorists, phenomenologists, observers and experimentalists to discuss optimal ways to probe the dark side of the universe.
Key questions to be discussed include
- What mechanism is driving the acceleration of the universe?
- Is gravity purely geometry as envisaged by Einstein?
- Is there evidence for extra dimensions and varying couplings?
- Which local and astrophysical probes are optimal to answer the above?
