Modified Gravity: Cosmology without dark matter or Einstein's cosmological constant

We explore the cosmological consequences of Modified Gravity (MOG), and find that it provides, using a minimal number of parameters, good fits to data, including CMB temperature anisotropy, galaxy power spectrum, and supernova luminosity-distance observations without exotic dark matter. MOG predicts a bouncing cosmology with a vacuum energy term that yields accelerating expansion and an age of ~13 billion years.

Machian gravity and a cosmology without dark matter and dark energy
The standard model of cosmology is based on the general theory of relativity and demands more than 95% of the universe to consist of dark matter and dark energy that has no direct observational

New agegraphic dark energy in f(R) gravity
In this paper, we study a cosmological application of the new agegraphic dark energy density in the f(R) gravity framework. We employ the new agegraphic model of dark energy to obtain the equation of
Void or Dark Energy
Two possible explanations for the type SNe Ia supernovae observations are a nonlinear, underdense void embedded in a matter-dominated Einstein-de Sitter spacetime or dark energy in the $\Lambda$CDM
Exact cosmological black hole solutions in scalar tensor vector gravity
We find an exact solution of Scalar-Tensor-Vector Gravity field equations that represents a black hole embedded in an expanding universe. This is the first solution of the kind found in the theory.

We study the gravitomagnetism in the Scalar-Vector-Tensor theory or Moffat’s Modified theory of Gravity (MOG). We compute the gravitomagnetic field that a slow-moving mass distribution produces in
Modified Newtonian Gravity, Wide Binaries and the Tully-Fisher Relation
A recent study of a sample of wide binary star systems from the Hipparcos and Gaia catalogues has found clear evidence of a gravitational anomaly of the same kind as that appearing in galaxies and
