Cahill, Hameetman Auditorium
"Next Generation Cosmological Constraints on the Dark Sector and Gravity."
Rachel Bean, Cornell,

A rich portfolio of upcoming complementary cosmological experiments will be producing data in the next 5-10 years.  I will discuss the goals of the LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration and the challenges faced to achieve them. I will also discuss ways in which LSST and the other surveys can be used in conjunction to extract insights into the properties of the dark sector (dark matter, neutrinos and dark energy) and gravity on cosmic scales.


This talk is supported in part by the Nina Abrams Fund.
