The Cosmological Bootstrap

* Presenter:Daniel Baumann,
A central challenge of modern cosmology is to explains the observed correlations in the large-scale structure of the universe. In this talk, I will describe a new approach to determine cosmological correlations from consistency conditions alone, following a perspective familiar from the study of scattering amplitudes. I will also discuss more generally how recent breakthroughs in the field of scattering amplitudes could lead to new insights into the structure of cosmological correlations.
