COLL 100. Scales in the Universe 

This course is organized around two fundamental questions: What are the geometric scales of the universe? What are the time scales of natural phenomena? In order to explore these questions we will look at the nearby universe revealed by our senses and go far away “up” and “down” looking for patterns and symmetries between the various ranges explored and we will also look in the time domain, exploring our understanding of the universe at larger and shorter intervals spanning billion or so longer and shorter times than our human experience. This course will give students a deeper understanding of the large-scale and small-scale character of our universe in length and time as well as the tools to access them.
