AB - Euclid is a European Space Agency medium-class mission selected for launch in 2019 withinthe Cosmic Vision 2015 – 2025 program. The main goal of Euclid is to understand the originof the accelerated expansion of the universe. Euclid will explore the expansion history of theuniverse and the evolution of cosmic structures by measuring shapes and red-shifts of galaxiesas well as the distribution of clusters of galaxies over a large fraction of the sky.Although the main driver for Euclid is the nature of dark energy, Euclid science covers avast range of topics, from cosmology to galaxy evolution to planetary research. In this reviewwe focus on cosmology and fundamental physics, with a strong emphasis on science beyondthe current standard models. We discuss five broad topics: dark energy and modified gravity,dark matter, initial conditions, basic assumptions and questions of methodology in the dataanalysis.This review has been planned and carried out within Euclid’s Theory Working Group andis meant to provide a guide to the scientific themes that will underlie the activity of the groupduring the preparation of the Euclid mission.
