Study of the different sources which can be used to explore the Universe as a whole, as well as those mechanisms specifically related
to structure formation and fundamental physics. We will pay special attention to new windows of observation, such as the one recently
opened by gravitational waves, as well as to neutrinos and energetic particles such as cosmic rays, and not so much to the complementary
information provided by electromagnetic radiation.
In this course the students will obtain knowledge on state of the art computing systems. This includes interaction with high performance, high
throughput and cloud computing systems, going through the tools and techniques needed to work with them and understanding the different
concepts needed to efficiently design their scientific applications.
Students will have the opportunity perform a research study
within one of the research groups to which the faculty of this Master belongs. Whenever possible, students are encouraged to carry out
this research in an area different from that of their Research Project.
Note: this course is part of the specialization module for those students who specialize in physics of the cosmos. However, it is also listed as an optional course for those
students who specialize in particle physics.
Basics of the standard cosmological model, Frieddman equations, universe evolution, initial perturbations and their role in CMB fluctuations and large structure formation.
Fundamental aspects of the largest structures of the universe and of data analysis in cosmology.

General overview of the different aspects and methodology involved in large particle physics experiments: data acquisition,
data processing, Monte Carlo simulation (event generation and detector response), data analysis, publication of results.
