During Inflationary and Dark Energy epochs the Universe undergoes accelerated expansion. An ideal geometry for such an expansion is the de Sitter spacetime. In our Universe during inflation and dark energy, cosmological degrees of freedom arise because of deviations from de Sitter.
Welcome to the webpage of SymAcc!
Symmetries and Degrees of Freedom in Cosmic Epochs of Accelerated Expansion is a project in theoretical cosmology funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska Curie grant agreement No 840709.
The project will run between 1.10.2019 until 30.09.2021 at CEICO at the Czech Academy of Sciences Institute of Physics. You can find the official international announcement of the project here.
I am Gizem Şengör, the lead researcher of the project.
The project advisor is Constantinos Skordis.
Here you can find some background information and updates about the project.
