Reconstructing the Universe: A Celebration of Alexei Starobinsky @ 65, IEU @ 5, and New Research

“Reconstructing the Universe” is an international cosmology research conference with three foci:

  • Research topics contributed to by Prof. Alexei A. Starobinsky, on the occasion of his 65th birthday
  • Research projects of the IEU during its first 5 years
  • New results in cosmology

Starobinsky Fest

  • Alexander Kamenshchik (INFN Bologna) — Scalar Fields in Classical and Quantum Cosmology
  • David Polarski (Montpellier) — Dark Energy: a New Vision at Our Universe
  • Misao Sasaki (Yukawa ITP) — Violating Non-Gaussianity Consistency Relation in Single Field Inflation
  • Arman Shafieloo (APCTP) — Falsifying Cosmological Constant
