Perspectives on Cosmic Inflation

Thursday, 28.06.2018 14:00

Speakers: Prof. Andreas Albrecht (University of California, Davis, USA)
Place: Přednáškový sál v budově FZÚ, Na Slovance 2, Praha 8
Presented in English
Organisers: Division of Elementary Particle Physics

I review the current status of cosmic inflation, including successes and open questions. I also scrutinize the question of the famous cosmological “tuning puzzles” and analyze the extent to which inflation does and does not resolve these. I explain why I think the open questions about inflation are deeply scientifically exciting. They should not be regarded as “failures” of inflation, nor should they be swept under the rug.
