Approaches to tests of gravity on cosmological scales
Abstract: More than a decade after its discovery, cosmic acceleration still  poses a puzzle for modern cosmology and a plethora of models of dark energy  or modified gravity, able to reproduce the observed expansion history, have  been proposed as alternatives to the cosmological... read more

Scale-dependent growth of structures in viable f(R) theories
Abstract: f(R) theories are an alternative approach at the phenomenon of cosmic acceleration, in which the Einstein-Hilbert action for gravity is modified by adding a function of the Ricci scalar, f(R). While at the background level viable f(R) models must closely mimic LCDM, the difference in their predictio... read more

Dynamics of Linear Perturbations in Modified Gravity Theories
Abstract: A modification of Gravity in the low-curvature regime may account for the late time acceleration of our universe, and is therefore an interesting alternative to Dark Energy.In such models, the modified Einstein equations admit self-accelerated solutions in the presence of negligible matter. At the l... read more
