Density perturbations in f(R) gravity theories in metric and Palatini formalisms

We make a detailed study of matter density perturbations in both metric and Palatini formalisms. Considering general theories whose Lagrangian density is a general function, $f(R)$, of the Ricci

A simple F ( R , φ) deformation of Starobinsky inflationary model

We study a model including a real scalar field φ non-minimally coupled to F ( R ) gravity, which is conformally equivalent to an Einstein–Hilbert theory, involving two

Beyond the concordance cosmology

For almost a hundred years now, Einstein’s General Relativity theory has played a pivotal role in our understanding of the Universe. The recent realization of the accelerated cosmic expansion,

Inflation in f(R,h) theory formulated in the Palatini formalism

A new model for inflation using modified gravity in the Palatini formalism is constructed. Here non-minimal coupling of scalar field h with the curvature R as a general function f(R,h) is considered.

f(R) Theories

Various applications of f(R) theories to cosmology and gravity — such as inflation, dark energy, local gravity constraints, cosmological perturbations, and spherically symmetric solutions in weak and strong gravitational backgrounds are reviewed.

Inflation and Reheating in f(R,h) theory formulated in the Palatini formalism

A new model for inflation using modified gravity in the Palatini formalism is constructed. Here non-minimal coupling of scalar field h with the curvature R as a general function f(R,h) is considered.

Black-hole solutions in F(R) gravity with conformal anomaly

In this paper, we consider F(R)=R+f(R) theory instead of Einstein gravity with conformal anomaly and look for its analytical solutions. Depending on the free parameters, one may obtain both uncharged

Constant-Roll Inflation in modified $f(R,\phi)$ gravity model using Palatini Formalism

In this work, we study a constant-roll inflationary model in the Palatini formalism using modified gravity. Here our action consists a non-minimal coupling of a scalar field φ with Ricci scalar R in a

Inflation with $$f(R,\phi )$$f(R,ϕ) in Jordan frame

We consider an f(R) action that is non-minimally coupled to a massive scalar field. The model closely resembles scalar–tensor theory and by conformal transformation can be transformed to Einstein

Inflation with f ( R , (cid:2) ) in Jordan frame

We consider an f ( R ) action that is non-minimally coupled to a massive scalar field. The model closely resembles scalar–tensor theory and by conformal transformation can be transformed to Einstein

One-loop f(R) gravity in de Sitter universe

Motivated by the dark energy issue, the one-loop quantization approach for a family of relativistic cosmological theories is discussed in some detail. Specifically, general f(R) gravity at the

INTRODUCTION TO MODIFIED GRAVITY AND GRAVITATIONAL ALTERNATIVE FOR DARK ENERGY

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-linear

Avoiding dark energy with 1/r modifications of gravity

Scalar quintessence seems epicyclic because one can choose the potential to reproduce any cosmology (I review the construction) and because the properties of this scalar seem to raise more questions

AdS and stabilized extra dimensions in multi-dimensional gravitational models with nonlinear scalar curvature terms R−1 and R4

We study multi-dimensional gravitational models with scalar curvature nonlinearities of types R−1 and R4. It is assumed that the corresponding higher dimensional spacetime manifolds undergo a

We develop the general scheme for modified f(R) gravity reconstruction from any realistic Friedmann-Robertson-Walker (FRW) cosmology. We formulate several versions of modified gravity compatible with

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 a

The accelerating Universe and a limiting curvature proposal

We consider the hypothesis of a limiting minimal curvature in gravity as a way to construct a class of theories exhibiting late-time cosmic acceleration. Guided by the minimal curvature conjecture we
