Cosmography with Gravitational Lensing: Block 1

Gravitational lensing has tremendously contributed to our understanding of the Universe in the past thirty years. Progress in this field has been extremely rapid, thanks to major advances in both observation and theory. Several recent studies have shown that gravitational lensing can provide accurate and precise estimates, independent from and complementary to those of other probes, of the Hubble constant and of the geometry of the Universe. The wealth of data from current and future surveys will transform gravitational lensing into a fundamental alternative tool for measuring some of the most relevant cosmological quantities. Analyses will no longer be statistically limited and they might point to exciting new physics. A concerted effort between observers and theorists will be needed to control systematics and reap the rewards from the large gravitational lensing datasets.
