Inaugural Lecture of Professor Mathematical Physics (1967)

The history of the Universe is both fascinating and challenging. Observations suggest that the Universe is undergoing a period of accelerated expansion. In this lecture I will give an overview of the history of the Universe and how it is thought to have evolved over billions of years. I will consider possible explanations of the current accelerated expansion. In particular I will discuss theories which extend gravity and introduce an extra force. These theories can be tested in the laboratory and cosmologically.
