Stability of scalar perturbations in scalar-torsion f(T,ϕ) gravity theories in the presence of a matter fluid
We study the viability conditions for the absence of ghost, gradient and tachyonic instabilities, in scalar-torsion f(T,ϕ) gravity theories in the presence of a general barotropic perfect fluid. To
Avoiding instabilities in antisymmetric tensor field driven inflation
Models of inflation with antisymmetric tensor studied in the past are plagued with ghost instability even in an unperturbed FRW background. We show that it is possible to avoid ghosts in an
Positivity vs. Lorentz-violation: an explicit example
We show how a class of multi-field scalar-field theories in a Lorentz-breaking background imposes consistency conditions on its effective theory of a single field and provides an example of
Stealth dark energy in scordatura DHOST theory
A stealth de Sitter solution in scalar-tensor theories has an exact de Sitter background metric and a nontrivial scalar field profile. Recently, in the context of Degenerate Higher-Order
