Inflation, a theory that incorporates physics at an energy scale a trillion times higher than can be observed at the Large Hadron Collider, is currently the best working model to describe our Universe at the earliest times. Fortuitously, this theory predicts signatures in the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) that we are now using to study extremely high energy physics and the conditions at the earliest times in our Universe.
All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
