Challenges in Connecting Modified Gravity Theory and Observations

27 Jan 2017 Linder Eric V.

Cosmic acceleration may be due to modifications of cosmic gravity and to test this we need robust connections between theory and observations. However, in a model independent approach like effective field theory or a broad class like Horndeski gravity, several free functions of time enter the theory... (read more)
