Collider physics and cosmology


This year, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will begin colliding protons at energies nearly an order of magnitude beyond the current frontier. The LHC will, of course, provide unprecedented opportunities to discover new particle physics. Less well-known, however, is that the LHC may also provide insights about gravity and the early universe. I review some of these connections, focusing on the topics of dark matter and dark energy, and highlight outstanding prospects for breakthroughs at the interface of particle physics and cosmology. © 2008 IOP Publishing Ltd.
