Subject of this article is the relationship between modern cosmology and fundamental physics, in particular general relativity as a theory of gravity on one side, together with its unique application in cosmology, and the formation of structures and their statistics on the other. It summarises arguments for the formulation for a metric theory of gravity and the uniqueness of the construction of general relativity. It discusses symmetry arguments in the construction of Friedmann-Lema\^itre… 

Statistical Mechanics of Self-Gravitating Systems in General Relativity JURY

The statistical mechanics of self-gravitating systems constitutes one of the most fascinating and puzzling fields of research. Due to the long-range nature of the gravitational force, the usual

Physical Bayesian modelling of the non-linear matter distribution: New insights into the nearby universe

Accurate analyses of present and next-generation cosmological galaxy surveys require new ways to handle effects of non-linear gravitational structure formation processes in data. To address these
