Symmetries and Degrees of Freedom in Cosmic Epochs of Accelerated Expansion

Project description

A holography approach to studying the accelerated expansion of the universe

According to the theory of cosmic inflation, the very early universe underwent a period of very rapid expansion and then continued to expand at a slower rate. This second epoch of accelerated expansion is thought to have begun when the universe entered its era of dark energy domination. Einstein's general relativity theory and quantum field theory, which have largely addressed light–matter interactions on a quantum scale, have driven forward our understanding of the universe. However, they cannot fully describe these two epochs of accelerated expansion. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the SymAcc project aims to identify the cosmological degrees of freedom that have a crucial role during the cosmic inflation and dark energy epochs using holography methods.
