Date:  2021-07-26  -  2021-07-30

Location:  Marseille, France

This CNRS thematic school aims to provide an overview of the most motivated current theories and tests of gravity in different regimes, ranging from the scale of the solar system to that of the large structures of the Universe. Emphasis is placed on recent developments in connection with major current problems in cosmology, such as the origin of the acceleration of the expansion of the Universe. The topics covered are: gravitational waves, gravity tests in the solar system, very large-scale modified gravitation and inhomogeneous cosmological models. This school completes the one (virtual) which was held from 12 – 16 April 2021. The presentations (presentations and videos) are accessible on the website.

A doctoral level is equally required in Astronomy, Astrophysics, Theoretical physics and Particle physics. No prior upgrading is planned, but the pedagogical recommendations associated with the program will be relayed by the speakers and will be posted on the school’s website.

Note: For certain reasons, the CIRM site is not accessible from certain countries, although participation by videoconference is possible. In this case, please contact triay[AT] if you wish to register.
