The quest for detecting the primordial gravitational wave background - Special Session Sp10 at EWASS 2015
Start date: 24 Jun 2015
Address: La Laguna, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain
Precision cosmology has shown that the geometrical properties of our universe, the large-scale structure formation, its evolution, and the statistical properties of the primordial fluctuations are compatible with the basic predictions made by cosmic inflation. A key observable in establishing these properties has been the cosmic microwave background (CMB), in particular, the ESA Planck satellite.
This Special Session, Sp10, at the European Week of Astronomy and Space Science (EWASS) 2015, pays particular attention to present efforts on the development of CMB polarization experiments, but also encouraging discussions on related aspects such as data analyses and fundamental physics.
