**ABSTRACT:**We consider the spatially flat Friedmann-Lemaitre-Robertson-Walker space time in the teleparallel model of gravity and assume that the universe is filled nearly by cold dark matter and a nonminimally coupled scalar field with a power-law potential as dark energy. We investigate the possibility that the universe undergoes a transition from quintessence to phantom phase. An analytical solution for the scalar field is obtained and necessary conditions required for such a transition are discussed.Physical review D: Particles and fields 01/2013; 87(6). - [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

**ABSTRACT:**We study the dynamics of ELKO in the context of accelerated phase of our universe. To avoid the fine tuning problem associated with the initial conditions, it is required that the dynamical equations lead to an early-time attractor. In the earlier works, it was shown that the dynamical equations containing ELKO fields do not lead to early-time stable fixed points. In this work, using redefinition of variables, we show that ELKO cosmology admits early-time stable fixed points. More interestingly, we show that ELKO cosmology admit two sets of attractor points corresponding to slow and fast-roll inflation. The fast-roll inflation attractor point is unqiue for ELKO as it is independent of the form of the potential. We also discuss the plausible choice of interaction terms in these two sets of attractor points and constraints on the coupling constant.Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics 12/2012; 2013(04). · 6.04 Impact Factor - [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

**ABSTRACT:**Since the 1928 seminal work of Dirac, and its subsequent development by Weinberg, a view is held that there is a unique Fermi field of spin one-half. It is endowed with mass dimension three-half. Combined, these characteristics profoundly affect the phenomenology of the high energy physics, astrophysics, and cosmology. We here present a counter example by providing a local, mass dimension one, Fermi field of spin one-half. The theory, inter alia, thus allows dimensionless quartic self interaction for the new fermions, and its only other dimensionless coupling is quadratic in the new fermions and in the standard-model scalar field. For these reasons, the immediate application of the new theory resides in the dark-matter sector of physical reality. The lowest-mass associated new particle may leave its unique signature at the Large Hadron Collider. We discuss in detail the theoretical crevice that allows the existence of the new quantum field.05/2013;
