The Dark Side of the Universe
Convénio entre a FCT e o DAAD (441.00 Alemanha)

Principal Investigator
Carlos J. A. P. Martins

The collaboration will study theoretical and phenomenological properties of models for dynamical dark energy based on cosmological scalar fields, focusing on their key observation signatures.Two key aspects of common interest are the use of astrophysical and local tests of varying fundamental constants as probes of the dynamical nature of dark energy (through the reconstruction of its equation of state) and the detailed characteristics of structure formation in theses models (including the use of N-body simulations to probe the non-linear regime).
