# INTRODUCTION TO MODIFIED GRAVITY AND GRAVITATIONAL ALTERNATIVE FOR DARK ENERGY

@inproceedings{Nojiri2006INTRODUCTIONTM, title={INTRODUCTION TO MODIFIED GRAVITY AND GRAVITATIONAL ALTERNATIVE FOR DARK ENERGY}, author={Shin’ichi Nojiri and Sergei D. Odintsov}, year={2006} }

We review various modified gravities considered as gravitational alternative for dark energy. Specifically, we consider the versions of f(R), f(G) or f(R, G) gravity, model with non-linear gravitational coupling or string-inspired model with Gauss-Bonnet-dilaton coupling in the late universe where they lead to cosmic speed-up. It is shown that some of such theories may pass the Solar System tests. On the same time, it is demonstrated that they have quite rich cosmological structure: they may…
