Future Cosmic Surveys and Fundamental Physics

by Prof. Eric Linder

Tuesday, 1 November 2016 from to (Asia/Seoul)
Future cosmic surveys of large scale structure and the cosmic 
microwave background radiation will attempt to answer questions of 
fundamental physics: what is the nature of dark energy? is cosmic 
gravity completely described by general relativity? can we probe 
the inflationary epoch through primordial gravitational waves? 
what are the masses and hierarchy of neutrinos and are there 
additional relativistic degrees of freedom? We describe the Cosmic 
Visions process in the US, for what might come beyond the
DESI-Euclid-LSST-WFIRST era for dark energy and the CMB.
