Welcome to the cosmology group of the Institute for Theoretical Physics!
Our institute is part of the Physics and Astronomy Department of the University of Heidelberg. Here at Heidelberg, we work together with the University's Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics located in our neighborhood and with the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy. We are also part of the Transregional Collaborative Research Centre TRR 33 - The Dark Universe.
Our research focuses on:
- Alternative models for the accelerated universe
- Cosmic Microwave Background
- Dark Energy
- Early Dark Energy
- Interacting Dark Energy
In addition, our group developed cmbeasy, a versatile Boltzmann code for the comparison of cosmological models to observations.
