Inflation and dark energy-theory and observational signatures

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

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.
