10th Northeast String Cosmology Meeting

Friday, December 7, 2007

The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By

Presented by the String Theory, Astrophysics, and Cosmology Discussion Group and Columbia University Institute for Strings, Cosmology, and Astroparticle Physics (ISCAP)

 

This is the golden age of cosmology. Once a data-starved science, cosmology has burgeoned as ground and space-based astronomical observations supply a wealth of unprecedently precise cosmological measurements. ISCAP is one of the few cosmology groups with the necessary breadth of interest and experience to pursue these inquiries, having expertise in traditional particle physics, string theory/quantum gravity, particle-astrophysics, inflationary cosmology, in numerical methods and observational cosmology.
