›Symmetries and Phases in the Universe
The scientific program covers all research areas of the Excellence Cluster Universe which are
A: How does matter behave at extremely high energies and short distances?
B: Is there symmetry between matter and forces?
C: What is the origin of particle masses and the reason for their hierarchy?
D: Which phase transitions took place in the early Universe?
E: What are the dark components of the Universe?
F: How did black holes form and evolve?
G: How was the Universe enriched with heavy elements?
The idea of the symposium is to bring together renowned international experts from around the world and local Cluster scientists and students. Current developments in the research fields are presented in plenary and contributed talks as well as in a poster session. The symposium offers ample opportunities for discussions.
