IEEE AP/MTT/EMC/ED TURKEY CHAPTER SEMINAR SERIES -- SEMINAR 58
15 November 2019 (12:40): IEEE AP/MTT/EMC/ED Turkey Seminar Series (S.58)
Speaker: Prof. Bayram Tekin, Middle East Technical University
Topic: "A Panoramic View of Modern Cosmology"
Location: Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey
Abstract: Data coming from the past of the Universe, when interpreted with Einstein’s gravity theory and the standard model of particle physics give us a consistent history of the last 13.8 billion years since the Big Bang. I will give a broad overview of what we know about the universe at large, describing how Einstein’s equations are applied to the dynamics of the Universe. Cosmic microwave background, the relic radiation coming from the time when the Universe was around 400 thousand years old, will be described in some detail.
