Higgs Dark Energy

Giovedý 18 gennaio 2018 alle ore 12:00, aula L1.3, edificio Fisica, Dipartimento FIM, Modena

Relatore: Dr. Massimiliano Rinaldi (University of Trento)

Abstract: Since 1998 we know that the Universe have been accelerating in its expansion during the last few billions years. However, a convincing theoretical explanation of this behavior is still lacking. In fact, an accelerated expansion means either that gravity becomes repulsive at the largest scales or that there exists a yet unknown cosmic fluid, named Dark Energy, that drives it. In this seminar I will focus on the second possibility and, after a general review on the problem of cosmic acceleration, I will present a model of Dark Energy inspired by the Higgs Yang-Mills model of particle physics.

Ospiti: Olindo Corradini.
