« Cosmic order and complexity »

Florent Leclercq

What banged at the Big Bang? How did complex structures take shape? Ideally, cosmological surveys should be analyzed in terms of the joint constraints they place on the initial conditions from which structure originates and on their subsequent gravitational evolution.

In this talk, I will describe progress towards simultaneous analysis of the formation history and web-like morphology of the large-scale structure of the inhomogeneous Universe. Crucial for this aim is developing efficient tools for assimilating data into the forecasts of a physical model of cosmic structure formation and quantifying uncertainty within a fully probabilistic approach.

I will keep the discussion at introductory level and focus on cosmographic results. For a more advanced discussion and comprehensive description of the methodology, I invite you to attend my GReCO seminar on March 2.
