Fredagskollokvium: The quest for primordial non-Gaussian signatures in Cosmology
Prof. Sabino Matarrese, Dipartimento di Fisica e Astronomia "Galileo Galilei" Universita' degli Studi di Padova, Italy
The general problem of the statistics of the primordial curvature perturbation field in cosmology is reviewed. The search for
non-Gaussian signatures in cosmological perturbations, originated from inflation in the early Universe is discussed
both from the theoretical point of view and in connection with constraints coming from recent observations and future prospects
for observing/constraining them.
