Alterations of the gravity Lagrangian introduced in modified torsion gravity theories---also referred to as $f(T)$ gravity---allows for an accelerated expansion in a matter dominated Universe. In this framework, the cosmic speed up is driven by an effective `torsion fluid'. Besides the background evolution of the Universe, structure formation is also modified because of a time dependent effective gravitational constant. Here, we investigate the imprints of $f(T)$ gravity on galaxy clustering…

Structure formation in f(T) gravity and a solution for H0 tension

We investigate the evolution of scalar perturbations in f(T) teleparallel gravity and its effects on the cosmic microwave background (CMB) anisotropy. The f(T) gravity generalizes the teleparallel

Light bending in f(T) gravity

In the framework of f(T) gravity, we focus on a weak-field and spherically symmetric solution for the Lagrangian f(T) = T + αT2, where α is a small constant which parametrizes the departure from

Toward a concordance teleparallel Cosmology I: Background Dynamics

Assuming the universe to be spatially flat with homogeneous and isotropic background, we study the cosmological viability of the infrared corrected $f(T)=T e^{\beta T_0/T}$ teleparallel gravity in

Toward a concordance teleparallel cosmology. Part I. Background dynamics

Assuming a spatially flat universe, we study the cosmological viability of an infrared corrected teleparallel gravity model, which accounts for late acceleration by weakening gravity at later times

Dynamical systems approach and generic properties of $f(T)$ cosmology

We present a systematic analysis of the dynamics of flat Friedmann-Lema\^{i}tre-Robertson-Walker cosmological models with radiation and dust matter in generalized teleparallel $f(T)$ gravity. We show

Weakly dynamic dark energy via metric-scalar couplings with torsion

We study the dynamical aspects of dark energy in the context of a non-minimally coupled scalar field with curvature and torsion. Whereas the scalar field acts as the source of the trace mode of

Analytic models of anisotropic strange stars in f(T)$f(T)$ gravity with off-diagonal tetrad

This paper is devoted to study the analytic models of anisotropic compact stars in f(T)$f(T)$ gravity (where T$T$ is torsion scalar), with non-diagonal tetrad. By taking the anisotropic source inside

Growth of Matter Perturbations in an Interacting Dark Energy Scenario Emerging from Metric-Scalar-Torsion Couplings

We study the growth of linear matter density perturbations in a modified gravity approach of scalar field couplings with metric and torsion. In the equivalent scalar-tensor formulation, the matter

Can f(T) gravity resolve the H0 tension?

Motivated by the discrepancy in measurements of H0 between local and global probes, we investigate whether teleparallel gravities could be a better model to describe the present-day observations or



Euclid Definition Study Report

Euclid is a space-based survey mission from the European Space Agency designed to understand the origin of the Universe's accelerating expansion. It will use cosmological probes to investigate the


It is still unknown whether there are families of tight knots whose lengths grow faster than linearly with crossing numbers, but the largest power has been reduced to 3/z, and some other physical models of knots as flattened ropes or strips which exhibit similar length versus complexity power laws are surveyed.

The Theory of Probability

This book is a searching analysis of the fundamental principles of the theory of probability and of the particular judgments involved in its application to concrete problems and is in agreement with the views expressed by Dr. Wrinch and the present reviewer.
