Global asymptotic dynamics of cosmological Einsteinian cubic gravity

In this paper we investigate the cosmological dynamics of an up to cubic curvature correction to General Relativity (GR) known as Cosmological Einsteinian Cubic Gravity (CECG), whose vacuum spectrum

Towards geometric inflation: The cubic case

Quantum origin of inflation in the geometric inflation model

In this paper we investigate the cosmological dynamics of geometric inflation by means of the tools of the dynamical systems theory. We focus in the study of two explicit models where it is possible

Small free field inflation in higher curvature gravity

Within General Relativity, a minimally coupled scalar field governed by a quadratic potential is able to produce an accelerated expansion of the universe provided its value and excursion are larger

Novel higher-curvature variations of R2 inflation

We put forward novel extensions of Starobinsky inflation, involving a class of 'geometric' higher-curvature corrections that yield second-order Friedmann-Lema\^itre equations and second-order-in-time

Cosmology in cubic and f(P) gravity

We construct cubic gravity and its $f(P)$ extension and we investigate their early- and late-time cosmological applications. Cubic gravity is based on a particular invariant $P$, constructed from

Inflationary predictions of geometric inflation

EFT approach to black hole scalarization and its compatibility with cosmic evolution

We address the issue of black hole scalarization and its compatibility with cosmic inflation and big bang cosmology from an effective field theory (EFT) point of view. In practice, using a well-defined



On black holes in higher-derivative gravities

We establish various general results concerning static and spherically symmetric black hole solutions of general higher-derivative extensions of Einstein gravity. We prove that the only theories

Universal black hole stability in four dimensions

We show that four-dimensional black holes become stable below certain mass when the Einstein-Hilbert action is supplemented with higher-curvature terms. We prove this to be the case for an infinite

Generalized quasitopological gravity

We construct the most general, to cubic order in curvature, theory of gravity whose (most general) static spherically symmetric vacuum solutions are fully described by a single field equation. The

Einsteinian cubic gravity

We drastically simplify the problem of linearizing a general higher-order theory of gravity. We reduce it to the evaluation of its Lagrangian on a particular Riemann tensor depending on two

Aspects of quadratic gravity

We discuss quadratic gravity where terms quadratic in the curvature tensor are included in the action. After reviewing the corresponding field equations, we analyze in detail the physical propagating

A new cubic theory of gravity in five dimensions: black hole, Birkhoff's theorem and C-function

We present a new cubic theory of gravity in five dimensions which has second-order traced field equations, analogous to BHT new massive gravity in three dimensions. Moreover, for static spherically

Four-dimensional black holes in Einsteinian cubic gravity

We construct static and spherically symmetric generalizations of the Schwarzschild- and Reissner-Nordstrom-(Anti-)de Sitter (RN-(A)dS) black-hole solutions in four-dimensional Einsteinian cubic

Black holes in Einsteinian cubic gravity

Using numerical and perturbative methods, we construct the first examples of black hole solutions in Einsteinian cubic gravity and study their thermodynamics. Focusing first on four-dimensional

f(R) Theories Of Gravity

Modified gravity theories have received increased attention lately due to combined motivation coming from high-energy physics, cosmology, and astrophysics. Among numerous alternatives to Einstein's
