What is CoPS?
The group of Cosmology, Particle astrophysics and String theory (CoPS) is a division at the Physics Department (“Fysikum”) of Stockholm University. The group was formed in 2004 and our research is focused on dark matter (both theory and experiment), dark energy (both theory and experiment), cosmology, string theory and general relativity. We are also members of the Oskar Klein Centre.
For the fall of 2011, we have Paolo Gondolo from University of Utah as a guest.
Every Monday at 12.15 we meet in A5:1041 for a common lunch with a lunch talk by one of the group members.
