Advances in Science -- 1/14/21 Daypass -- Cosmology: The History of the Universe
This talk will present the history of the universe, from the moment of the Big Bang to the present cosmological epoch. During this span of time, the universe experiences a brief phase of superluminal expansion, develops an asymmetry of matter over anti-matter, produces a substantial component of dark matter, synthesizes light nuclei, and leaves behind a background radiation field. Galaxies, then stars and planets, are formed during the later stages of this sweep of cosmic evolution. Fred C. Adams is the Ta-You Wu Collegiate Professor of Physics at the University of Michigan. He works on a wide variety of topics in theoretical astrophysics, including cosmology, star formation, and extra-solar planets.
