The two-body problem under the influence of both dark energy and post-Newtonian modifications is studied. In this unified framework, we demonstrate that dark energy plays the role of a critical period with TΛ = 2π/c √ Λ ≈ 60 Gyr. We also show that the ratio between orbital and critical period naturally emerges from the Kretschmann scalar, which is...

Putting constraints on a possible Lorentz Invariance Violation (LIV) from astrophysical sources such as gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) is essential for finding evidences of new theories of quantum gravity (QG) that predict an energy-dependent speed of light. This search has its own difficulties, so usually, the effect of the cosmological model is understu...

We consider the propagation of electromagnetic waves in the Friedmann–Lemaître–Robertson–Walker metric. The exact solutions for plane and spherical wave are written down. The corresponding redshift, amplitude change, and dispersion are discussed. We also speculate about the connection of the electromagnetic wave equation to the Proca equation and i...

MOdified Gravity (MoG)) is widely constrained in different astrophysical and astronomical systems. Since these different systems are based on different scales it is not trivial to get a combined constraint that is based on different phenomenology. Here, for the first time (to the best of our knowledge), we combine constraints for MoG from late time...

The use of the baryonic acoustic oscillations (BAO) datasets offers a unique opportunity to connect the early universe and the late one. In this proceeding, we discuss recent results that used a marginalised likelihood to remove the $H_0-r_d $ degeneracy and then tested it on different dark energy (DE) models. It was found that this approach which...

The combination of Baryon Acoustic Oscillations (BAO), with other astrophysical probes can be used to compare different cosmological models with respect to the default \(\varLambda \)CDM model. In this proceeding, we summarize our recent publications in which we combined BAO dataset in the effective redshift range \(z \in (0.1, 2.36)\) with the Cos...

It has been theorized that dynamical dark energy (DDE) could be a possible solution to Hubble tension. To avoid degeneracy between Hubble parameter H0 and sound horizon scale rd, in this article, we use their multiplication as one parameter c/H0rd, and we use it to infer cosmological parameters for 6 models—ΛCDM and 5 DDE parametrizations—the Cheva...

It has been theorized that Dynamical Dark Energy (DDE) could be a possible solution to the Hubble tension. To avoid the degeneracy between the Hubble parameter $H_0$ and the sound horizon scale $r_d$, in this article we use their multiplication as one parameter $c/\left(H_0 r_d\right)$ and we use it to infer cosmological parameters for 6 different...

The H 0 tension and the accompanying r d tension are a hot topic in current cosmology. In order to remove the degeneracy between the Hubble parameter H 0 and the sound horizon scale r d from the baryon acoustic oscillation (BAO) datasets, we redefined the likelihood by marginalizing over the H 0 ⋅ r d parameter and then we performed a full Bayesian...

Cosmic Probes of Fundamental Physics take two primary forms: Very high energy particles (cosmic rays, neutrinos, and gamma rays) and gravitational waves. Already today, these probes give access to fundamental physics not available by any other means, helping elucidate the underlying theory that completes the Standard Model. The last decade has witn...

The multi-measure model (MMM), in which one modifies the action to include both the Riemannian measure and a non-Riemannian one, has proven to be able to produce viable Universe evolution scenarios. In this article we consider two special cases of the multi-measure model, in which we first decouple the two kinetic terms in the Lagrangian entirely a...

The standard Λ Cold Dark Matter (ΛCDM) cosmological model provides a good description of a wide range of astrophysical and cosmological data. However, there are a few big open questions that make the standard model look like an approximation to a more realistic scenario yet to be found. In this paper, we list a few important goals that need to be a...

In this paper we will list a few important goals that need to be addressed in the next decade, also taking into account the current discordances between the different cosmological probes, such as the disagreement in the value of the Hubble constant $H_0$, the $\sigma_8$--$S_8$ tension, and other less statistically significant anomalies. While these...

The exploration of the universe has recently entered a new era thanks to the multi-messenger paradigm, characterized by a continuous increase in the quantity and quality of experimental data that is obtained by the detection of the various cosmic messengers (photons, neutrinos, cosmic rays and gravitational waves) from numerous origins. They give u...

In this work, we test the robustness of the constancy of the Supernova absolute magnitude $M_B$ using Non-parametric Reconstruction Techniques (NRT). We isolate the luminosity distance parameter $d_L(z)$ from the Baryon Acoustic Oscillations (BAO) data set and cancel the expansion part from the observed distance modulus $\mu(z)$. Consequently, the...

Baryon Acoustic Oscillations (BAO) datasets use very precise measurements of the spatial distribution of large-scale structures as a distance ladder to help constrain cosmological parameters. In a recent article \cite{Benisty:2020otr}, we combined 17 uncorrelated BAO measurements in the effective redshift range $0.106 \le z \le 2.36$ with the Cosmi...

Dynamical Dark Energy (DDE) is a possible solution to the Hubble tension. This work analyses the combination of Baryon Acoustic Oscillation (BAO) data that include $19$ points from the range $0.11 \le z \le 2.40$ and additional points from the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) Distant Priors. We test equation of states with a Linear, CPL and a Loga...

Baryon acoustic oscillations (BAO) involve measuring the spatial distribution of galaxies to determine the growth rate of cosmic structures. We derive constraints on cosmological parameters from 17 uncorrelated BAO measurements that were collected from 333 published data points in the effective redshift range 0.106 ≤ z ≤ 2.36. We test the correlati...

The multi-measure model (MMM), in which one modifies the action to include both the Riemannian measure and a non-Riemannian one, has proven to be able to produce viable Universe evolution scenarios. In this article we consider two special cases of the multi-measure model, in which we remove some of the non-linearity of the Lagrangian or we decouple...

In this work, we report some results on the numerical exploration of the model of Guendelman-Nissimov-Pacheva. This model has been previously applied to cosmology, but there were open questions regarding its parameters. Here we demonstrate the existence of families of solutions on the slope of the effective potential which preserve the duration of...

In a recent work, we demonstrated that a modified gravity model in which a scalar “darkon” field is coupled to both the standard Riemannian metric and to another non-Riemannian volume form is compatible with observational data from Supernovae Type Ia. Here, we investigate a more complicated model with an additional “inflaton” scalar field. We demon...

We consider the cosmological application of a (variant of) relatively newly proposed model ¹ unifying inflation, dark energy, dark matter, and the Higgs mechanism. The model was originally defined using additional non-Riemannian measures, but it can be reformulated into effective quintessential model unifying inflation, dark energy and dark matter....

The multi-measures model applied to cosmology has been recently shown to reproduce qualitatively the expected stages of the Universe evolution, along with some unexpected features. In this article, we continue its exploration with a detailed study of the effective potential of the model. An analysis of the limits of applicability of the effective p...

Recently, few cosmological models with additional non-Riemannian volume form(s) have been proposed. In this article we use Supernovae type Ia experimental data to test one of these models which provides a unified description of both dark energy via dynamically generated cosmological constant and dark matter as a “dust” fluid due to a hidden nonline...

The Heun functions are often called the hypergemeotry successors of the 21st century, because of the wide number of their applications. In this proceeding we discuss their application to the problem of perturbations of rotating and non-rotating black holes and highlight some recent results on their late-time ring-down obtained using those functions...

Recently, a model of modified gravity plus single scalar field was proposed, in which the scalar couples both to the standard Riemannian volume form given by the square root of the determinant of the Riemannian metric, as well as to another non-Riemannian volume form given in terms of an auxiliary maximal rank antisymmetric tensor gauge field. This...

century, because of the wide number of their applications. In this proceeding
we discuss their application to the problem of perturbations of rotating and

The proper understanding of the electromagnetic counterpart of gravity-waves emitters is of serious interest to the multimessenger astronomy. In this article, we study the numerical stability of the quasinormal modes (QNM) and quasibound modes (QBM) obtained as solutions of the Teukolsky Angular Equation and the Teukolsky Radial Equation with appro...

The perturbations of Kerr metric and the miracle of their exact solutions
play a critical role in the comparison of predictions of GR with astrophysics
of compact objects, see the recent review article by Teukolsky [1]. The
differential equations governing the late-time ring-down of the perturbations
of the Kerr metric, the Teukolsky Angular Equati...

Because of their wide applications in physics, the Heun functions are expected to succeed the hypergeometrical functions in the physical problems of the 21st century. The numerical work with those functions, however, is complicated and requires new algorithms able to work with them efficiently.
We propose a new algorithm for solving a system of two...

The differential equations governing the late-time ring-down of the
perturbations of the Kerr metric, the Teukolsky Angular Equation and the
Teukolsky Radial Equation, can be solved analytically in terms of confluent
Heun functions. In this article, for the first time, we use those exact
solutions to obtain the electromagnetic (EM) quasinormal spec...

Although finding numerically the quasinormal modes of a nonrotating black
hole is a well-studied question, the physics of the problem is often hidden
behind complicated numerical procedures aimed at avoiding the direct solution
of the spectral system in this case. In this article, we use the exact
analytical solutions of the Regge-Wheeler equation...

We propose a new algorithm for solving a system of two nonlinear
transcendental equations with two complex variables based on the Muller
algorithm. The two-dimensional Muller algorithm is tested on systems of
different type and is found to work comparably to Newton's method and Broyden's
method in many cases. The new algorithm is particularly usefu...

We give a new theoretical basis for examination of the presence of the Kerr black hole (KBH) or the Kerr naked singularity (KNS) in the central engine of different astrophysical objects around which astrophysical jets are typically formed: X-ray binary systems, gamma ray bursts (GRBs), active galactic nuclei (AGN), etc.
Our method is based on the s...

Despite all the already existing observational data, current models still
cannot explain completely the excessive energy output and the time variability
of GRB. One of the reasons for this is the lack of a good model of the central
engine of GRB. A major problem in the proposed models with a black hole (BH) in
the center is that they don't explain...

We present new developments of the simple model of the central engine of GRB,
proposed recently. The model is based on minimal assumptions: some rotating
compact relativistic object at the center and stable perturbations of its
rotating gravitational field, described by Teukolsky Master Equation. We show
that using nonstandard polynomial solutions...
