If gravitation is propagated by a massive field, then the velocity of gravitational waves (gravitons) will depend upon their frequency as ${(v}_{g}{/c)}^{2}=1\ensuremath{-}(c/f{\ensuremath{\lambda}}_{g}{)}^{2}$, and the effective Newtonian potential will have a Yukawa form $\ensuremath{\propto}{r}^{\ensuremath{-}1}\mathrm{exp}(\ensuremath{-}r/{\ensuremath{\lambda}}_{g})$, where ${\ensuremath{\lambda}}_{g}{=h/m}_{g}c$ is the graviton Compton wavelength. In the case of inspiralling compact… Expand

Waveforms of compact binary inspiral gravitational radiation in screened modified gravity
Scalar-tensor gravity, with the screening mechanisms to avoid the severe constraints of the fifth force in the Solar System, can be described with a unified theoretical framework, the so-calledExpand
Bounding the mass of graviton in a dynamic regime with binary pulsars
In Einstein's general relativity, gravity is mediated by a massless spin-2 metric field, and its extension to include a mass for the graviton has profound implications for gravitation and cosmology.Expand
Probing screening and the graviton mass with gravitational waves
Gravitational waves can probe fundamental physics, leading to new constraints on the mass of the graviton. Previous tests, however, have neglected the effect of screening, which is typically presentExpand

It is known that massive black holes (MBHs) of $10^{5-7}\,M_\odot$ could capture small compact objects to form extreme-mass-ratio inspirals (EMRIs). Such systems emit gravitational waves (GWs) in theExpand
Constraining the range of Yukawa gravity interaction from S2 star orbits II: Bounds on graviton mass

Lorentz violations in multifractal spacetimes
Using the recent observation of gravitational waves (GW) produced by a black-hole merger, we place a lower bound on the energy above which a multifractal spacetime would display an anomalous geometryExpand
