Mysteries of the Dark Cosmos

Professor Roberto Trotta

Dark matter and dark energy together make up 95% of our Universe. Yet, very little is known about them. 

This lecture will present the endeavours of cosmologists and particle physicists, as they attempt to explain the fundamental nature of these mysterious dark components. The existence of dark matter might open new vistas in particle physics, while dark energy might even hold the key to the multiverse.
