Science Case for the Einstein Telescope
The Einstein Telescope (ET), a proposed European ground-based gravitational-wave detector of third-generation, is an evolution of second-generation detectors such as Advanced LIGO, Advanced Virgo,Expand

Nonlocal gravity. Conceptual aspects and cosmological predictions
Even if the fundamental action of gravity is local, the corresponding quantum effective action, that includes the effect of quantum fluctuations, is a nonlocal object. These nonlocalities are wellExpand

Effective field theory calculation of conservative binary dynamics at third post-Newtonian order
We reproduce the two-body gravitational conservative dynamics at third post-Newtonian order for spinless sources by using the effective field theory methods for the gravitationally bound two-bodyExpand

Effective field theory approach to the gravitational two-body dynamics at fourth post-Newtonian order and quintic in the Newton constant
Working within the post-Newtonian (PN) approximation to general relativity, we use the effective field theory (EFT) framework to study the conservative dynamics of the two-body motion at fourth PNExpand

Effective field theory methods to model compact binaries
In this short review we present a self-contained exposition of the effective field theory method approach to model the dynamics of gravitationally bound compact binary systems within theExpand

Non-local gravity and comparison with observational datasets. II. Updated results and Bayesian model comparison with ΛCDM
We present a comprehensive and updated comparison with cosmological observations of two non-local modifications of gravity previously introduced by our group, the so called RR and RT models. WeExpand

Dynamics of the gravitational two-body problem at fourth post-Newtonian order and at quadratic order in the Newton constant
We derive the conservative part of the Lagrangian and the energy of a gravitationally bound two-body system at fourth post-Newtonian order, up to terms quadratic in the Newton constant. We also showExpand

Tail terms in gravitational radiation reaction via effective field theory
Gravitational radiation reaction affects the dynamics of gravitationally bound binary systems. Here we focus on the leading "tail" term which modifies binary dynamics at fourth post-Newtonian order,Expand

Nonlocal gravity with a Weyl-square term
Recent work has shown that modifications of General Relativity based on the addition to the action of a non-local term $R\,\Box^{-2}R$, or on the addition to the equations of motion of a termExpand

Cosmological perturbations and structure formation in nonlocal infrared modifications of general relativity
We study the cosmological consequences of a recently proposed nonlocal modification of general relativity, obtained by adding a term $m^2R\,\Box^{-2}R$ to the Einstein-Hilbert action. The model hasExpand
