Theoretical priors in scalar-tensor cosmologies: Shift-symmetric Horndeski models

2022-04-05T17:40:55+02:00Tags: , |

Authors: Traykova, Dina; Bellini, Emilio; Ferreira, Pedro G.; Garcia-Garcia, Carlos; Noller, Johannes; Zumalacarregui, Miguel Journal: PHYSICAL REVIEW D Publication date: 2021/10/01 DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.104.083502 Abstract: Attempts at constraining theories of late time accelerated expansion often assume broad priors for the parameters in their phenomenological description. Focusing on shift-symmetric scalar-tensor theories with standard gravitational wave speed, we [...]

Authors: Nicola, Andrina; Garcia-Garcia, Carlos; Alonso, David; Dunkley, Jo; Ferreira, Pedro G.; Slosar, Anze; Spergel, David N. Journal: JOURNAL OF COSMOLOGY AND ASTROPARTICLE PHYSICS Publication date: 2021/03/01 DOI: 10.1088/1475-7516/2021/03/067 Abstract: Cosmic shear is one of the most powerful probes of Dark Energy, targeted by several current and future galaxy surveys. Lensing shear, however, is only [...]

Theoretical priors in scalar-tensor cosmologies: Thawing quintessence

2021-02-12T10:08:12+01:00Tags: , |

Authors: Garcia-Garcia, Carlos; Bellini, Emilio; Ferreira, Pedro G.; Traykova, Dina; Zumalacarregui, Miguel Contribution: Article Journal: PHYSICAL REVIEW D Publication date: 2020/03/05 DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.101.063508 Abstract: The late time acceleration of the Universe can be characterized in terms of an extra, time-dependent, component of the Universe-dark energy. The simplest proposal for dark energy is a scalar-tensor theory-quintessence-which consists [...]

Entangling Superconducting Qubits through an Analogue Wormhole

Authors: Sabin, Carlos Contribution: Article Journal: UNIVERSE Publication date: 2020/09/09 DOI: 10.3390/universe6090149 Abstract: We propose an experimental setup to test the effect of curved spacetime upon the extraction of entanglement from the quantum field vacuum to a pair of two-level systems. We consider two superconducting qubits coupled to a dc-SQUID array embedded into an open microwave [...]

Quantum dissipation of planar harmonic systems: Maxwell-Chern-Simons theory

Authors: Valido, Antonio A. Contribution: Article Journal: PHYSICAL REVIEW D Publication date: 2019/01/03 DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.99.016003 Abstract: Conventional Brownian motion in harmonic systems has provided a deep understanding of a great diversity of dissipative phenomena. We address a rather fundamental microscopic description for the (linear) dissipative dynamics of two-dimensional harmonic oscillators that contains the conventional Brownian motion [...]

Dirac equation in exotic spacetimes

Authors: Faba Garcia, Javier; Sabin, Carlos Contribution: Article Journal: PHYSICAL REVIEW D Publication date: 2019/01/14 DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.99.025008 Abstract: We find solutions of the Dirac equation in curved spacetime. In particular, we consider 1 + 1 dimensional sections of several exotic metrics: the Alcubierre metric, which describes a scenario that allows faster-than-light velocity; the Godel metric, which [...]

alpha-attractor dark energy in view of next-generation cosmological surveys

Contribution: Article Journal: JOURNAL OF COSMOLOGY AND ASTROPARTICLE PHYSICS Publication date: 2019/07/01 DOI: 10.1088/1475-7516/2019/07/025 Abstract: The alpha-attractor inflationary models are nowadays favored by CMB Planck observations. Their similarity with canonical quintessence models motivates the exploration of a common framework that explains both inflation and dark energy. We [...]
