Description

Wide field astronomy has recently produced important results for the dark matter and dark energy problematics. I will summarize the scientific impact of the ongoing wide field surveys and focus on the future LSST program (Large Synoptic Survey Telescope). This program will use a 8.4 m diameter telescope, equipped with a 3.2 Gpixel wide field camera. Cosmological studies is one of his main objectives.
