Title: Physics of the Cosmological Collider
Abstract: We discuss how the primordial universe can be used to probe high energy physics. For this purpose, the following three topics will be covered: (1) An overview of cosmological correlation functions (non-Gaussianities). (2) Using inflation as a collider to probe the particle physics Standard Model and BSM physics. (3) Distinguishing inflation and alternative-to-inflation models from the outcome of the cosmological collider.
The topic is a bit theoretical but I will try to relate more about observations during the talk.
