Early Universe Thermometers
(Padova, 6-8 February 2008)
The workshop is aimed to stimulate new ideas on models that
provide solutions to the cosmological puzzles and that can be put
in connection with one of the most intriguing
open issues in cosmology: how hot was the early Universe ?
The title can be also regarded as a tribute to Galileo who
invented the thermometer about 400 years ago in Padova.
The main subjects of the workshop will be therefore: inflation,
primordial gravitational waves, baryogenesis, dark matter and
neutrinos in cosmology.
Each morning, there will be two review talks on the main subjects,
followed, in the afternoon, by working sessions with more specialistic talks.
Organizers: W.Buchmüller, L. Covi,
P. Di Bari, A.Ibarra, A. Masiero, M. Pietroni, A. Riotto.
Secretary: Paola Zenere.
