Fundamental Physics from Galaxy Clusters

To celebrate the inception of Fermilab's new Particle Astrophysics Center, we are hosting a workshop on fundamental physics from clusters of galaxies. The workshop aims to understand what we can learn about dark energy, dark matter, neutrinos, structure formation, gas physics and about fundamental physics in general from clusters of galaxies. Current and upcoming experiments will measure clusters via optical light, weak and strong gravitational lensing, X-ray emission, the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect, and more. These measurements will enable us to extract the mass function and clustering properties of clusters, providing the key links to cosmological parameters. There is no registration fee.
