The most obvious way in which we observe the Universe is through electromagnetic radiation, that is, light. In recent years, a standard cosmological model has emerged which states that the Universe is largely composed of nonluminous substances called dark matter and dark energy. These substances appear to play a dominant role in the evolution and future of the Universe. However the characteristics and nature of these dark components of the Universe are very poorly understood at present. In addition to these nonluminous substances, there is also the recent announcement of the detection of gravitational waves which could open up a new nonluminous, nonelectromagnetic window on the Universe.

One of the goals of this special issue is to collect together ideas as to the nature of dark energy and dark matter. A second goal is to examine ways in which these dark components of the Universe may be probed and how one can use the new dark window provided by gravitational waves to understand the early Universe.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

    Models for dark energy/dark matter
    Modified theories of gravity as alternatives to dark energy/dark matter
    Models of inflation
    Cosmological observations as a window on fundamental physics
    Structure formation in the Universe
    Particle production processes in cosmology
    Gravitational waves as a window to the early Universe
