Our Mysterious Dark Universe


After giving an introduction into modern cosmology and the incredible progresses it witnessed, I will summarise the theoretical and observational challenges that we are facing in the standard model of cosmology. I will then introduce different ideas proposed in the literature to tackle these problems within modified gravity theories, among which I will pay special attention to massive gravity, scalar-tensor theories and generalised Proca theories on curved space-time.
