The Center for Cosmology within the School of Physical Sciences at UC Irvine is devoted to topics that are linked to the origin and evolution of the Universe:
* What are the fundamental constituents of the Cosmos?
* How did galaxies emerge from the primordial Universe?
* How can astrophysical observations influence our understanding of particle physics?
These questions evoke deep connections between the macroscopic world of astrophysics and the microscopic world of particle physics. Bringing together astrophysicists, cosmologists, and high-energy physicists, the Center for Cosmology thrives on collaborations between varied subfields with a united interest in deciphering the Universe.
