Constraints on f(R) gravity from probing the large-scale structure - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


Lombriser, Lucas; Slosar, Anže; Seljak, Uroš; Hu, Wayne (2012). Constraints on f(R) gravity from probing the large-scale structure. Physical Review D (Particles, Fields, Gravitation and Cosmology), 85(12):1-12.

Abstract

We study cosmological constraints on metric f(R) gravity models that are designed to reproduce the ΛCDM expansion history with modifications to gravity described by a supplementary cosmological freedom, the Compton wavelength parameter B0. We conduct a Markov chain Monte Carlo analysis on the parameter space, utilizing the geometrical constraints from supernovae distances, the baryon acoustic oscillation distances, and the Hubble constant, along with all of the cosmic microwave background data, including the largest scales, its correlation with galaxies, and a probe of the relation between weak gravitational lensing and galaxy flows. The strongest constraints, however, are obtained through the inclusion of data from cluster abundance. Using all of the data, we infer a bound of B0<1.1×10-3 at the 95% C.L.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
