In this paper the coupling between dark energy and the other components of the cosmological fluid has been studied. Firstly, it will be shown that the application of general cosmological equations, deduced by the authors in a previous work, to the known data of the Abell cluster A586 using the Layzer-Irvine theory gives similar results compared to the work of other authors. The aforesaid method present some problems: the application of an approximate theory (Layzer-Irvine theory), it has only…

The Layzer-Irvine equation in theories with non-minimal coupling between matter and curvature
We derive the Layzer-Irvine equation for alternative gravitational theories with non-minimal coupling between curvature and matter for an homogeneous and isotropic Universe. As an application, we


Dark Energy and Dark Gravity
Observations provide increasingly strong evidence that the universe is accelerating. This revolutionary advance in cosmological observations confronts cosmological theory with a tremendous challenge,
Principles of Physical Cosmology
During the last twenty years, dramatic improvements in methods of observing astrophysical phenomena from the ground and in space have added to our knowledge of what the universe is like now and what
Dark energy and dark gravity: theory overview
Observations provide increasingly strong evidence that the universe is accelerating. This revolutionary advance in cosmological observations confronts theoretical cosmology with a tremendous
Top ten accelerating cosmological models
Recent astronomical observations indicate that the Universe is presently almost flat and undergoing a period of accelerated expansion. Basing on Einstein's general relativity all these observations
Coupled Quintessence
A new component of the cosmic medium, a light scalar field or ”quintessence ”, has been proposed recently to explain cosmic acceleration with a dynamical cosmological constant. Such a field is
TASI Lectures on the cosmological constant
The energy density of the vacuum, Lambda, is at least 60 orders of magnitude smaller than several known contributions to it. Approaches to this problem are tightly constrained by data ranging from
The dark energy equation of state
We perform a study of cosmic evolution with an equation of state parameter $\omega(t)=\omega_0+\omega_1(t\dot H/H)$ by selecting a phenomenological $\Lambda$ model of the form, $\dot\Lambda\sim H^3$.
Can vacuum decay in our universe
We take a phenomenological approach to the study of the cosmological evolution of decaying vacuum cosmology (Λ(t)CDM) based on a simple assumption about the form of the modified matter expansion
Cosmological model with interactions in the dark sector
A cosmological model for the present Universe is analyzed whose constituents are a non-interacting baryonic matter field and interacting dark matter and dark energy fields. The dark energy and dark
Probing the coupling between dark components of the universe
We place observational constraints on a coupling between dark energy and dark matter by using 71 Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) from the first year of the five-year Supernova Legacy Survey (SNLS), the
