Sammanfattning : In the standard model of cosmology, the universe is currently dominated by dark energy in the form of the cosmological constant that drives the expansion to accelerate. While the cosmological constant hypothesis is consistent with all current data, models with dynamical behaviour of dark energy are still allowed by observations. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Massive gravity is an extension of general relativity where the graviton, which mediates gravitational interactions, has a non-vanishing mass. The first steps towards formulating a theory of massive gravity were made by Fierz and Pauli in 1939, but it took another 70 years until a consistent theory of massive gravity was written down.

Sammanfattning : Einstein’s theory of general relativity has been the prevailing theory of classical gravity for over a century. Its observational consistency is unparalleled. There are however a few (arguably) serious short-comings. LÄS MER
5. Sources of Dust Extinction in Type Ia Supernovae : Measurements and constraints from X-rays to the Infrared
Sammanfattning : The use of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) as distance indicators is essential for studying the expansion history of the Universe and for exploring the nature of dark energy. However, a lack of understanding of the progenitor systems and the empirically derived colour-brightness corrections represent severe limitations for SNe Ia as cosmological probes. LÄS MER
