We present a unifying treatment of dark energy and modified gravity that allows distinct conformal-disformal couplings of matter species to the gravitational sector. In this very general approach, we derive the conditions to avoid ghost and gradient instabilities. We compute the equations of motion for background quantities and linear perturbations. We illustrate our formalism with two simple scenarios, where either cold dark matter or a relativistic fluid is nonminimally coupled. This extends… 

Nonlinear effective theory of dark energy

We develop an approach to parametrize cosmological perturbations beyond linear order for general dark energy and modified gravity models characterized by a single scalar degree of freedom. We derive

Interacting dark energy in curved FLRW spacetime from Weyl Integrable Spacetime

In the present article, we show that a simple modification to the Einstein-Hilbert action can explain the possibility of mutual interaction between the cosmic fluids. That is achieved considering the

Dark Energy vs. Modified Gravity

Understanding the reason for the observed accelerated expansion of the Universe represents one of the fundamental open questions in physics. In cosmology, a classification has emerged among physical

General formulation of cosmological perturbations in scalar-tensor dark energy coupled to dark matter

For a scalar field ϕ coupled to cold dark matter (CDM), we provide a general framework for studying the background and perturbation dynamics on the isotropic cosmological background. The dark energy

Phenomenology of dark energy: general features of large-scale perturbations

We present a systematic exploration of dark energy and modified gravity models containing a single scalar field non-minimally coupled to the metric. Even though the parameter space is large, by

Scalar-field dark energy nonminimally and kinetically coupled to dark matter

We provide a general framework for studying the dark energy cosmology in which a scalar field ϕ is nonminimally and kinetically coupled to cold dark matter (CDM). The scalar-graviton sector is

Scalar-fluid theories: cosmological perturbations and large-scale structure

Recently a new Lagrangian framework was introduced to describe interactions between scalar fields and relativistic perfect fluids. This allows two consistent generalizations of coupled quintessence

The Effective Field Theory of Dark Energy Diagnostic of Linear Horndeski Theories After GW170817 and GRB170817A

We summarize the effective field theory of dark energy construction to explore observable predictions of linear Horndeski theories. We review the diagnostic of these theories on the correlation of

The effective field theory of dark energy is generalized to incorporate dark matter, which is modelled using a complex scalar field with a global U(1) symmetry. The dark matter model used here has

Probing the imprints of generalized interacting dark energy on the growth of perturbations

We extensively study the evolution and distinct signatures of cosmological models, in which dark energy interacts directly with dark matter. We first focus on the imprints of these coupled models on



The effective field theory of dark energy

We propose a universal description of dark energy and modified gravity that includes all single-field models. By extending a formalism previously applied to inflation, we consider the metric

Parametrized post-Friedmannian framework for interacting dark energy theories

We present the most general parametrization of models of dark energy in the form of a scalar field which is explicitly coupled to dark matter. We follow and extend the parametrized post-Friedmannian

Disformal couplings and the dark sector of the universe

Interactions between dark matter and dark energy, allowing both conformal and and disformal couplings, are studied in detail. We discuss the background evolution, anisotropies in the cosmic microwave

Effective field theory of modified gravity with two scalar fields: dark energy and dark matter

We present a framework for discussing the cosmology of dark energy and dark matter based on two scalar degrees of freedom. An effective field theory of cosmological perturbations is employed. A

Velocities as a probe of dark sector interactions

Dark energy in General Relativity is typically non-interacting with other matter. However, it is possible that the dark energy interacts with the dark matter, and in this case, the dark matter can

Linear and nonlinear perturbations in dark energy models

I review the linear and second-order perturbation theory in dark energy models with explicit interaction to matter in view of applications to N-body simulations and non-linear phenomena. Several new

Cosmological tests of the disformal coupling to radiation

Light scalar fields can naturally couple disformally to Standard Model fields without giving rise to the unacceptably large fifth forces usually associated with light scalars. We show that these

Modified gravity and the radiation dominated epoch

In this paper we consider scalar-tensor theories, allowing for both conformal and disformal couplings to a fluid with a general equation of state. We derive the effective coupling for both background

Effective field theory of cosmological perturbations

The effective field theory of cosmological perturbations stems from considering a cosmological background solution as a state displaying spontaneous breaking of time translations and (adiabatic)

Dark matter, time-varying G, and a dilaton field.

We demonstrate the observational viability of having an exactly massless dilaton field couple with gravitational strength to most matter in the Universe. This is done by constructing a generalized
