In Horava-Lifshitz gravity, the extra dynamical scalar mode could play significant role in cosmology. However it has been pointed out that such a scalar may suffer from the strong coupling problem in IR. We address this issue in this paper. Our analysis shows that the scalar mode could decouple naturally at \lambda=1 due to the extra gauge symmetry. On the other hand, the fact that the scalar mode becomes ghost when 1/3<\lambda<1 is a real challenge to the theory. We try to overcome this… 

Perturbative instabilities in Hořava gravity

We investigate the scalar and tensor perturbations in Hořava gravity, with and without detailed balance, around a flat background. Once both types of perturbations are taken into account, it is

Cosmological perturbations in the projectable version of Hořava-Lifshitz gravity

We consider linear perturbations about a homogeneous and isotropic cosmological background in the projectable version of Hořava-Lifshitz gravity. Starting from the action for cosmological

Constraining the detailed balance condition in Hořava gravity with cosmic accelerating expansion

In 2009 Hořava proposed a power-counting renormalizable quantum gravity theory. Afterwards a term in the action that softly violates the detailed balance condition has been considered with the

Fluctuations in a Ho\v{r}ava-Lifshitz Bouncing Cosmology

Ho\v{r}ava-Lifshitz gravity is a potentially UV complete theory with important implications for the very early universe. In particular, in the presence of spatial curvature it is possible to obtain a

Hořava–Lifshitz dark energy

We formulate Hořava–Lifshitz cosmology with an additional scalar field that leads to an effective dark energy sector. We find that, due to the inherited features from the gravitational background,

Cosmological Perturbations in Generalized Theories of Gravity

The first part of the thesis concerns the study of inflation in the context of a theory of gravity called "Induced Gravity" in which the gravitational coupling varies in time according to the

String in Horava-Lifshitz gravity

We generalize recent analysis of the dynamics of point particle in Hoyrava- Lifshitz background to the case of string probe when we replace the Hamiltonian constraint of the Polyakov string with the

New Tsallis agegraphic Dark Energy in Horava-Lifshitz cosmology

We investigate the new Tsallis agegraphic dark energy (NTADE) scenario in the framework of Horava-Lifshitz cosmology. Considering interacting and non-interacting scenarios of NTADE with dark matter

A Trouble with Hoÿrava-Lifshitz Gravity

We study the structure of the phase space in Hoyrava-Lifshitz theory. With the constraints derived from the action, the phase space is described by five fields, thus there is a lack of canonical

Scalar field perturbations in Hořava-Lifshitz cosmology

We study perturbations of a scalar field cosmology in Hořava-Lifshitz gravity, adopting the most general setup without detailed balance but with the projectability condition. We derive the

We investigate the linear cosmological perturbations of Horcava-Lifshitz gravity in a Friedmann-Robertson-Walker universe without any matter. Our results show that a new gauge-invariant dynamical

Large scale evolution of the curvature perturbation in Hořava-Lifshitz cosmology

In the non-relativistic theory of gravity recently proposed by Hořava, the Hamiltonian constraint is not satisfied locally at each point in space. The absence of the local Hamiltonian constraint

Based on the renormalizable theory of gravitation recently proposed by Ho?ava, we present a simple scenario to generate almost scale-invariant, super-horizon curvature perturbations. The anisotropic

The cosmological constant and Hořava-Lifshitz gravity

Hořava-Lifshitz theory of gravity with detailed balance is plagued by the presence of a negative bare (or geometrical) cosmological constant which makes its cosmology clash with observations. We

We address the consistency of Hořava's proposal for a theory of quantum gravity from the low-energy perspective. We uncover the additional scalar degree of freedom arising from the explicit breaking
