The previous twenty years have obvious transformative advances in cosmology and string concept. Observations of the cosmic microwave historical past have published robust facts for inflationary growth within the very early universe, whereas new insights approximately compactifications of string conception have ended in a deeper knowing of inflation in a framework that unifies quantum mechanics and basic relativity. Written via of the major researchers within the box, this whole and obtainable quantity offers a contemporary therapy of inflationary cosmology and its connections to thread concept and straightforward particle conception. After an up to date experimental precis, the authors current the principles of powerful box conception, string thought, and string compactifications, atmosphere the level for a close exam of versions of inflation in string thought. 3 appendices comprise heritage fabric in geometry and cosmological perturbation conception, making this a self-contained source for graduate scholars and researchers in string idea, cosmology, and comparable fields.

Whilst predictions of Einstein's conception of basic Relativity are in comparison opposed to observations of our Universe, an enormous inconsistency is located. the most well-liked repair for this inconsistency is to "invent" round ninety four% of the content material of the universe: darkish subject and darkish power.

Après ses stupéfiantes avancées du siècle dernier – los angeles découverte de l’expansion de l’univers, du mammoth Bang et des trous noirs –, l. a. cosmologie serait-elle en voie de perdre son objet d’étude ? L’avènement de l. a. « matière noire », invisible mais nécessaire pour expliquer les mouvements des galaxies, celui de l’« énergie noire », insaisissable mais crucial pour rendre compte de l’accélération de l’expansion de l’univers, et celui des trous noirs, qui font disparaître l. a. matière ordinaire comme un lapin dans un chapeau de magicien, donnent l’image d’un univers élusif dont une half grandissante échappe à l’observation.
