From the Small to the Large Scales: Particle Physics

Meets Cosmology

The observations of the sky have been the basis of scientific progress from the very start

and have allowed physicists to discover gravitation and to develop scientific methods. In the

present days, it is clearer than ever that the physics at small and large scales are tightly inter-

connected: Indeed, nowadays cosmological and astrophysical observations are the strong-

est hints at the need to extend the Standard Model of Particle Physics, while at the same

time Standard Model interactions are at the basis of the Big Bang Model.

In this working group, we will discuss these different connections between the large and

small scales. In particular, we will address the questions of modelling Dark Matter, Dark En-

ergy and Inflation within theories, which go beyond the Standard Model, and discuss what

we can learn about fundamental physics from cosmological and astrophysical observations.

Special emphasis will be placed on new theoretical ideas and on how it may be possible to

test these models in future observations or experiments and single out a unified model of

particle physics and cosmology.

No previous knowledge of particle physics or cosmology will be assumed, but familiarity with

scientific methods and good physical and mathematical knowledge are expected.
