Description
"Indications of the accelerating expansion of the Universe have accumulated during the last decade thanks to observations of SNIa, measurements of the anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background and studies of the large-scale structure of the universe. This acceleration could be due to a new energy component called ""dark energy"", which is neither matter nor radiation._x000D_ _x000D_ The cosmic acceleration could also be a sign that Einstein’s theory of gravity breaks down on cosmological scales, which would have strong implications on our understanding of the laws of nature. A way to seek signatures of modified gravity is to test the relationship between t...
