Cosmological Matter

Astronomical observations give us immense theoretical challenges, for example with respect to the concepts of dark matter and dark energy. Researchers in Leiden focus on the theory of inflation in order to embed it in the microscopic theories of supergravity and string theory. Candidate particles for the explanation of dark matter, for example coming from cosmic X-ray sources, are being studied. We also work on neutrino observations.
