A central theme in cosmology is the perplexing fact that the Universe is undergoing an accelerating expansion. The latter, one of the most important and challenging current problems in cosmology, represents a new imbalance in the governing gravitational field equations. Several candidates, responsible for this expansion, have been proposed in the literature, in particular, dark energy models and modified gravity, amongst others. In this paper, we explore the possibility that the late-time… Expand
New Modified Mimetic Gravity
A modified Mimetic gravity (MMG) is proposed as a generalization of general relativity. The model contain a physical metric which is function of an auxiliary (unphysical) metric and a Lyra's metric.Expand
Stellar systems and structure scalars
The work is devoted to analyzing the effects of dark source polynomial curvature corrections in the mathematical modeling of radiating stars. In this scenario, we have used a particular f(R, T) modelExpand
Role of modified scalar variables in the modeling of spherical fluids
The aim of this work is to analyze the role of shear evolution equation in the modeling of relativistic spheres in [Formula: see text] gravity. We assume that non-static diagonally symmetric geometryExpand

We present a measurement of the linear growth rate of structure, \textit{f} from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey III (SDSS III) Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) Data Release 12 (DR12)Expand
Rip cosmologies, wormhole solutions and big trip in the f(T,𝒯 ) theory of gravity
Rip cosmological models have been investigated in the framework of $f(T,\mathcal{T})$ theory of gravity, where $T$ denotes the torsion and $\mathcal{T}$ is the trace of the energy-momentum tensor.Expand


The Dark side of gravity: Modified theories of gravity
Modern astrophysical and cosmological models are faced with two severe theoretical difficulties, that can be summarized as the dark energy and the dark matter problems. Relative to the former, it hasExpand
Dark energy in modified Gauss-Bonnet gravity: Late-time acceleration and the hierarchy problem
Dark energy cosmology is considered in a modified Gauss-Bonnet (GB) model of gravity where an arbitrary function of the GB invariant, f(G), is added to the general relativity action. We show that aExpand
From Inflation to Dark Energy in the Non-Minimal Modified Gravity(VIII Asia-Pacific International Conference on Gravitation and Astrophysics (ICGA8))
We consider the modified gravity non-minimally coupled with matter Lagrangian for the description of early-time and late-time universe. Such $F(R)$ ($F(G)$) gravity in the absence of non-minimalExpand
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-linearExpand
Dark matter as a geometric effect in f(R) gravity
Abstract We consider the behavior of the tangential velocity of test particles moving in stable circular orbits in f ( R ) modified theories of gravity. A large number of observations at the galacticExpand
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 recentExpand
Energy conditions in modified Gauss-Bonnet gravity
In considering alternative higher-order gravity theories, one is liable to be motivated in pursuing models consistent and inspired by several candidates of a fundamental theory of quantum gravity.Expand
A late-accelerating universe with no dark energy—and a finite-temperature big bang
Brane-world models offer the possibility of explaining the late acceleration of the universe via infra-red modifications to general relativity, rather than a dark energy field. However, one alsoExpand
Unified cosmic history in modified gravity: From F ( R ) theory to Lorentz non-invariant models
Classical generalization of general relativity is considered as gravitational alternative for unified description of the early-time inflation with late-time cosmic acceleration. The structure andExpand
Is Cosmic Speed-Up Due to New Gravitational Physics?
We show that cosmic acceleration can arise due to very tiny corrections to the usual gravitational action of general relativity, of the form ${R}^{\ensuremath{-}n}$ with $ng0.$ This model eliminatesExpand
