ARThUs (Advances in the Research on Theories of the dark Universe) is funded by an ERC Advanced Grant and led by Thomas Buchert. The project focuses on two main fronts:
- studies of the effect of inhomogeneities in relativistic cosmology on average properties of cosmological models. We ask the question whether these inhomogeneity effects, being quantitatively important, could even resolve the Dark Energy and Dark Matter problems of the standard model of cosmology.
- robust morphological analysis of galaxy catalogues and Cosmic Microwave Background data using integral-geometrical tools (Minkowski Functionals), and topological tools (Homology).
