The Cosmology Group is actively working on the study of the principal components of the Universe, i.e. Dark Matter and Dark Energy.
- Study of the properties and evolution of Dark Matter and Dark Energy through weak gravitational lensing (Scaramella, Cardone, Maoli, Xinzhong)
- Theoretical models of Dark Energy and Modified Gravity and related observational tests (Cardone, Scaramella, Maoli, Xinzhong)
- The effect of Cold and Warm Dark Matter on the properties of galaxies and their redshift evolution; comparison with observations (Menci, Lamastra, Castellano, Grazian)
- Semi-analytical models of galaxy formation (Menci, Lamastra)
