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. 

​The main objectives of SymAcc are

  • to understand how these deviations from de Sitter can be formulated in the context of Holography where the late time behavior of fields in de Sitter can also be studied as a Conformal Field Theory with operators of certain dimensions
  • to establish a connection between the properties of Conformal Field Theory operators  and cosmological degrees of freedom during inflation and during dark energy epoch individually.
  • to classify these deformations for different cases.
