Theoretical Cosmology Meetings
Weekly meeting on theoretical cosmology research, mainly supported by our STFC consolidated grant, covering the very early universe, modified gravity, and dark energy. We meet Wednesdays from 1-2pm in DS 2.08. Note that during the pandemic, this seminar series is online. Please contact the organiser for the zoom link if you wish to attend.

- Theoretical Cosmology: Michiru Niibo (Institute of Basic Science, South Korea) on 4th Oct 2023 1:00:pm Title: Formation of defects associated with both spontaneous and explicit symmetry breaking Abstract: We are going to discuss the formation of topological defects. In the context of particle physics, such as neutrinos and axions, there are usually both spontaneous and explicit symmetry breaking. We consider how the explicit symmetry breaking term affects defect formation.
