Testing the variation of fundamental constants with astrophysical and spectroscopic data

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In many theories of unified interactions, there are additional degrees of freedom that may allow for the variation of the fundamental constants of nature. I will review the motivation for and theoretical relations between such variations. I will then review the various astrophysical and experimental constraints on the variations of constants and their dependence on spectroscopic data.
