The impact of dark energy on galaxy formation. What does the future of our Universe hold
We investigate the effect of the accelerated expansion of the Universe due to a cosmological constant, Λ, on the cosmic star formation rate. We utilize hydrodynamical simulations from the EAGLE
Constraints on neutrino mass from cosmic microwave background and large-scale structure
Our tightest upper limit on the sum of neutrino mass eigenvalues $M_\nu$ comes from cosmological observations that will improve substantially in the near future, enabling a detection. The combination
Smoothing expansion rate data to reconstruct cosmological matter perturbations
The existing degeneracy between different dark energy and modified gravity cosmologies at the background level may be broken by analysing quantities at the perturbative level. In this work, we apply

An Evaluation of Cosmological Models from the Expansion and Growth of Structure Measurements
We compare a large suite of theoretical cosmological models to observational data from the cosmic microwave background, baryon acoustic oscillation measurements of expansion, Type Ia SNe measurements
Probing gravity and growth of structure with gravitational waves and galaxies’ peculiar velocity
The low-redshift velocity field is a unique probe of the growth of cosmic structure and gravity. We propose to use distances from gravitational wave (GW) detections, in conjunction with the redshifts
Testing general relativity in cosmology
The review aims at providing an overall picture of the subject and an entry point to students and researchers interested in joining the field and a quick reference to recent results and constraints on testing gravity at cosmological scales.
Beyond Einstein’s theory of gravitation : some aspects of loop quantum cosmology, black holes and the dark universe
In this thesis we explore the phenomenology of some extensions to General Relativity and quantum gravity theories.The motivation for this research lies in the incompleteness of the current
J-PAS: forecasts on dark energy and modified gravity theories
The next generation of galaxy surveys will allow us to test one of the most fundamental assumptions of the standard cosmology, i.e. that gravity is governed by the general theory of relativity


Dark Energy and the Accelerating Universe
Ten years ago, the discovery that the expansion of the universe is accelerating put in place the last major building block of the present cosmological model, in which the universe is composed of 4%
A correlation between the cosmic microwave background and large-scale structure in the Universe
The detection of correlations between recent CMB data and two probes of large-scale structure: the X-ray background and the distribution of radio galaxies are reported, indicating that the imprint of dark energy is seen on the growth of structure in the Universe.
Cosmic growth history and expansion history
Author(s): Linder, Eric V. | Abstract: The cosmic expansion history tests the dynamics of the global evolution of the universe and its energy density contents, while the cosmic growth history tests
Constraining cosmic expansion and gravity with galaxy redshift surveys
We analyze the science reach of a next generation galaxy redshift survey such as BigBOSS to fit simultaneously for time varying dark energy equation of state and time- and scale-dependent gravity.
The WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey: the growth rate of cosmic structure since redshift z=0.9
We present precise measurements of the growth rate of cosmic structure for the redshift range 0.1 < z < 0.9, using redshift-space distortions in the galaxy power spectrum of the WiggleZ Dark Energy
The influence of galaxy formation physics on weak lensing tests of general relativity
Forthcoming projects such as the Dark Energy Survey, Joint Dark Energy Mission, and the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, aim to measure weak lensing shear correlations with unprecedented accuracy.
Cluster constraints on f (R) gravity
Modified gravitational forces in models that seek to explain cosmic acceleration without dark energy typically predict deviations in the abundance of massive dark matter halos. We conduct the first,
A test of the nature of cosmic acceleration using galaxy redshift distortions
Using a new survey of more than 10,000 faint galaxies, the anisotropy parameter β = 0.70 ± 0.26 is measured, which is consistent with the standard cosmological-constant model with low matter density and flat geometry, although the error bars are still too large to distinguish among alternative origins for the accelerated expansion.
