In the 1980s, the ‘cosmological inflation’ hypothesis was formed to explain the homogeneity of the universe and the emergence of structure formation. According to the hypothesis, the universe had undergone an enormous additional expansion in the first second following the Big Bang. For his PhD thesis, Sandor Mooij explores inflation from various angles. For example, he examines whether the recently discovered Higgs particle might have been responsible for inflation and describes how inflation can work within the context of super symmetry.
