In this paper we study the late evolution of Relic Gravitational Waves in coupled dark energy models, where dark energy interacts with cold dark matter. Relic Gravitational Waves are second tensorial order perturbations of the Lemaitre–Friedman–Robertson–Walker metric and experiment an evolution ruled by the scale factor of the metric. We find that the amplitude of Relic Gravitational Waves is smaller in coupled dark energy models than in models with non interacting dark energy. We also find… 
Primordial gravitational waves spectrum in the interacting Bose–Einstein gas model
We study the evolution and power spectrum of primordial gravitational waves in the interactive Bose–Einstein gas model for dark energy, relevant, as it addresses the coincidence problem. The model is
Propagation of gravitational waves in an expanding background in the presence of a point mass
We solve the Laplace equation $\Box h_{ij}=0$ describing the propagation of gravitational waves in an expanding background metric with a power law scale factor in the presence of a point mass in the


Relic gravitational waves and present accelerated expansion
We calculate the current power spectrum of the gravitational waves created at the big bang (and later amplified by the different transitions during the Universe expansion) taking into account the
The Imprint of the interaction between dark sectors in galaxy clusters
Based on perturbation theory, we study the dynamics of how dark matter and dark energy in the collapsing system approach dynamical equilibrium when they are in interaction. We find that the
Matter density perturbations in interacting quintessence models
Models with dark energy decaying into dark matter have been proposed to solve the coincidence problem in cosmology. We study the effect of such coupling in the matter power spectrum. Because of the
TASI lectures on gravitational waves from the early universe
These lectures discuss how the direct detection of gravitational waves can be used to probe the very early Universe. We review the main cosmological mechanisms which could have produced relic
Dynamics of dark energy
We review in detail a number of approaches that have been adopted to try and explain the remarkable observation of our accelerating universe. In particular we discuss the arguments for and recent
Signature of gravity waves in polarization of the microwave background
Using spin-weighted decomposition of polarization in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) we show that a particular combination of Stokes $Q$ and $U$ parameters vanishes for primordial fluctuations
The tilt of primordial gravitational waves spectra from BICEP2
In this paper we constrain the tilt of the spectrum of primordial gravitational waves from Background Imaging of Cosmic Extragalactic Polarization (BICEP2) data only. We find r = 0.21(-0.10)(+0.04)
Mini black holes and the relic gravitational waves spectrum
In this paper we explore the impact of an era\char22{}right after reheating\char22{}dominated by mini black holes and radiation on the spectrum of relic gravitational waves. This era may lower the
Relic gravitational waves in light of the 7-year Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe data and improved prospects for the Planck mission
The new release of data from Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe improves the observational situation with relic gravitational waves. The 7-year results enhance the indications of relic
