In this paper, we continue to build support for the proposal to use gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) as standard candles in constructing the Hubble Diagram at redshifts beyond the current reach of Type Ia supernova observations. We confirm that correlations among certain spectral and lightcurve features can indeed be used as luminosity indicators, and demonstrate from the most up-to-date GRB sample appropriate for this work that the ΛCDM model optimized with these data is characterized by parameter…

Exploring the potentiality of standard sirens to probe cosmic opacity at high redshifts

In this work, using the Gaussian process, we explore the potentiality of future gravitational wave (GW) measurements to probe cosmic opacity at high redshifts through comparing its opacity-free

Probing alternative cosmologies through the inverse distance ladder

We study the implications of a combined analysis of cosmic standard candles and standard rulers on the viability of cosmological models beyond the cosmological concordance model ΛCDM . To this end,

No evidence of beyond-soft-corrections to the Born-Infeld paradigm in the cosmic history

The Dieterici fluid model can be applied for describing the growth of the dark energy amount and the expenses of dark matter leading to a transition between decelerating and accelerating phases of

NEW PHYSICS OF AN ETERNAL INFINITE MULTIVERSE INSTEAD OF TODAY ' S SINGULAR BIGBANG COSMOLOGY

The objective of this paper is to propose a new understanding of relativity theory (RT) keeping all its measurable results in a one and only non-expanding multiverse (many evolutionary cosmoses in
