Abstract

In the last decades the field of cosmology has witnessed an effervescence which could be compared to the one that permeated particle physics in the 60’s and the 70’s, resulting in the birth of the Standard Model (SM). As often in science, it is the development of the experimental/observational branch of the discipline that allows the theoretical research to blossom.

Keywords

Dark Matter Dark Energy Vacuum Energy Massive Gravity Effective Field Theory 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
