Large Scale Bulk Flows: A Tilted Universe?

Fernando Atrio-Barandela
Facultad de Ciencias, Universidad de Salamanca

Abstract
Peculiar velocities of galaxies and clusters of galaxies provide important information about the matter distribution on large scales. We shall describe our latest findings on large scale velocity flows, in particular the dubbed Dark Flow, a large scale motion that could encompass the whole observable Universe. We will also discuss its implications for inflationary models.
