Title: Starobinsky inflation, dark energy, and dark matter in supergravity

Abstract: The Dark Side of the Universe is considered from the viewpoint of its possible gravitational origin in the early Universe. The gravitational description of cosmological inflation is provided by Starobinsky model. It is further extended to supergravity, in a search for the gravitational origin of dark energy and dark matter. This presentation is accessible to graduate students in physics, and no prior knowledge of supergravity is required.
