# A weak lensing detection of a deviation from General Relativity on cosmic scales

@article{Bean2009AWL, title={A weak lensing detection of a deviation from General Relativity on cosmic scales}, author={Rachel Bean}, journal={arXiv: Cosmology and Nongalactic Astrophysics}, year={2009} }

We consider evidence for deviations from General Relativity (GR) in the growth of large scale structure, using two parameters, $\gamma$ and $\eta$, to quantify the modification. We consider the Integrated Sachs-Wolfe effect (ISW) in the WMAP Cosmic Microwave Background data, the cross-correlation between the ISW and galaxy distributions from 2MASS and SDSS surveys, and the weak lensing shear field from the Hubble Space Telescope's COSMOS survey along with measurements of the cosmic expansion…
