Cosmology with the Square Kilometre Array and its Pathfinders — •Dominik Schwarz — Universität Bielefeld
Observations at radio frequencies played a crutial role in establishing the isotropy and vast size of the Universe in the early days of our modern cosmological model. With the discovery of the cosmic microwave background, radio observations had to step back. With the development of a new generation of radio facilities like LOFAR and the SKA, which allow for all-sky, sensitive and fast surveys, there are now new windows of opportunity for game changing cosmologial observations in radio, especially via HI observations. I'll focus in my talk on how those observations will be unique cosmological probes.
