Description

In this talk I will review the present status of the standard theoretical framework of cosmology and how it confronts observations, paying particular attention to the Early Universe physics (inflation models) and its observational probes (power-spectrum, non-Gaussian features, etc), possible connections between dark matter, dark energy and potential modifications of gravity, also accunting for cosmological gravitational-wave signals and their propagation.
