The evolution of the Universe is a fascinating topic in physics that attracts much attention. Despite remarkable progress in our understanding of the Universe during the last hundred years, there is overwhelming evidence for the existence of the Dark Universe that we do not understand. The Dark Universe includes (but is not limited to) dark energy, dark matter, cosmological inflation, and black holes. Gaining further insights demands new observational discoveries and advanced theoretical approaches in gravitational theory, quantum field theory with gravity, astroparticle physics, cosmology, and string theory, including the related mathematics. This Special Issue is devoted to current trends and new theoretical proposals in explaining the Dark Universe, including also gravity with extra dimensions, supersymmetric cosmology, string cosmology, AdS/CFT correspondence, primordial black holes and Swampland conjectures. Advanced theoretical physics and mathematics of the Dark Universe combine formal and phenomenological research and confront it to current observations, enhancing scientific knowledge about the Universe and connecting it to other branches of science.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
