DarkFun 3: Dark Energy from Fundamentals
Fundamental theory is confronted with observations of an accelerating
expansion of the universe. The physics is unknown, possessing the
characteristics of a strongly negative effective equation of state and spatial
smoothness, but may arise from either a new physical component of the
universe or new physical laws of gravity. We hope to challenge our
thinking of what are testable, benchmark models for the acceleration and
what future dark energy experiments should be like.

This is the third in the DarkFun series of mini-workshops. These are
small, invited gatherings with focused talks and informal discussion.
Previous editions were:
Thanks to everyone who attended! We had a very active group of about
50 people attending, from Berkeley, Davis, and Stanford, contributing
to lively discussions.
