# Skewness as a test of the equivalence principle.

@article{Amendola2004SkewnessAA, title={Skewness as a test of the equivalence principle.}, author={Luca Amendola and Claudia Quercellini}, journal={Physical review letters}, year={2004}, volume={92 18}, pages={ 181102 } }

The skewness of the large-scale distribution of matter has long been known to be a probe of gravitational clustering. Here we show that the skewness is also a probe of violation of the equivalence principle between dark matter and baryons. The predicted level of violation can be tested with the forthcoming data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.

We study a dark energy model with non-zero anisotropic stress, either linked to the dark energy density or to the dark matter density. We compute approximate solutions that allow to characterise the… Expand

Skewness of matter distribution in clustering dark energy cosmologies

We calculate the skewness (the third moment $S_3$) of matter distribution in dynamical dark energy cosmologies. We pay particular attention to the impact of dark energy perturbations on this… Expand

Dark energy–dark matter interaction and putative violation of the equivalence principle from the Abell cluster A586
