Inflation and dark energy-theory and observational signatures

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The theories of inflation and dark energy are reviewed paying particular attention to their observational signatures. We discuss the classification of inflationary models, primordial density perturbations including non-Gaussianities, and modified gravity models of inflation. We also review theoretical attempts for finding out the origin of dark energy-such as the cosmological constant, modified matter models, and modified gravity models.
