Résumé / Abstract Seminaire_IAP
« The Dark Energy Survey and Beyond »

Boyden Obs., Univ. Free State (Boyden, Afrique du Sud)

After reviewing the status of the cosmological model post Planck and other surveys, the talk will focus on the international Dark Energy Survey (DES). DES observations are already underway, aiming to map 300 million galaxies which will be used via multiple methods (galaxy clustering, clusters, weak lensing) and thousands of supernovae type Ia. These will be used to quantify the enigmatic Dark Energy and alternative models. Early DES science results will be presented. Other science goals (e.g. neutrino mass) and future surveys (e.g. DESI, Euclid, LSST) will also be discussed.
