Constraints on ultralight axions, vector gauge bosons, and unparticles from geodetic and frame-dragging effects
The geodetic and frame-dragging effects are the direct consequences of the spacetime curvature near earth which can be probed from the Gravity probe B satellite. The satellite result matches quite
Is GW170817 a multimessenger neutron star-primordial black hole merger?
We investigate the possibility of the gravitational-wave event GW170817 being a light, solar-mass black hole (BH) — neutron star (NS) merger. We explore two exotic scenarios involving primordial

The Simons Observatory: science goals and forecasts
The Simons Observatory (SO) is a new cosmic microwave background experiment being built on Cerro Toco in Chile, due to begin observations in the early 2020s. We describe the scientific goals of the
Progress in lunar laser ranging tests of relativistic gravity.
Analyses of laser ranges to the Moon provide increasingly stringent limits on any violation of the equivalence principle (EP); they also enable several very accurate tests of relativistic gravity, including the search for a time variation in the gravitational constant.
First Analysis of Jupiter in Gamma Rays and a New Search for Dark Matter
We present the first dedicated gamma-ray analysis of Jupiter, using 12 years of data from the Fermi Telescope. We find no robust evidence of gamma-ray emission, and set upper limits of ∼ 10−9 GeV
Evading equivalence principle violations, cosmological, and other experimental constraints in scalar field theories with a strong coupling to matter
We show that, as a result of nonlinear self-interactions, it is feasible, at least in light of the bounds coming from terrestrial tests of gravity, measurements of the Casimir force and those
Cosmology with a very light Lμ − Lτ gauge boson
A bstractIn this paper, we explore in detail the cosmological implications of an abelian Lμ − Lτ gauge extension of the Standard Model featuring a light and weakly coupled Z′. Such a scenario is
Constraints on a MOND effect for isolated aspherical systems in the deep Newtonian regime from orbital motions
The dynamics of non-spherical systems described by MOND theories arising from generalizations of the Poisson equation is affected by an extra MONDian quadrupolar potential φQ even if they are
Post-Keplerian corrections to the orbital periods of a two-body system and their measurability
The orbital motion of a binary system is characterized by various characteristic temporal intervals which, by definition, are different from each other: the draconitic, anomalistic and sidereal
Hints of modified gravity in cosmos and in the lab?
General Relativity (GR) is consistent with a wide range of experiments/observations from millimeter scales up to galactic scales and beyond. However, there are reasons to believe that GR may need to
Do we have any hope of detecting scattering between dark energy and baryons through cosmology?
We consider the possibility that dark energy and baryons might scatter off each other. The type of interaction we consider leads to a pure momentum exchange, and does not affect the background
