to:
  • The quest for the variation of Fundamental Constants.
  • The dynamics and cosmological implications of Cosmic Strings.
  • Inhomogeneous cosmology.

The IA - Cosmology Team is involved in several important observational missions and Telescopes, namely in Expresso, Euclid, e-LiSA.

In our research we apply a blend of analytical techniques, numerical simulations, and analysis of data to the study of %0acosmological models.

    1. A global understanding of the variety of couplings that are physically admissible in cosmological models;
    2. Further understanding the realization of the inflationary stage that took place during the very early universe, and in particular the way the universe reheats from such an extreme stage;
    3. The search for an explanation for the nature of dark energy and dark matter as well, and for the cosmological balance between such dominant components, which governs the dynamics of the universe in such a way as to produce a late, second stage of accelerated expansion;
    4. The relation between the dynamics and interplay of the various components of the universe and the large-scale structure that one observes.

cosmological models.
