We derive cosmological soft theorems for solids coupled to gravity. To this end, we first derive all cosmological adiabatic modes for solids, which display the interesting novelty of non-vanishing anisotropic stresses on large scales. Then, from the corresponding symmetries of the action of perturbations we compute the leading order related soft theorems using the operator product expansion. For the scalar bispectrum, we re-derive the result that Maldacena's consistency relation is recovered onl...

Dark matter models in which the constituent particle is an ultra-light boson have become part of the mainstream discussion in cosmology and astrophysics. At the classical level, the models are represented by the dynamics of a (real or complex) scalar field endowed with a potential that contains its self-interactions, and for this reason are generically known as scalar field dark matter models. Here, we revisit the properties of such a model with a cosh potential and compare it with other known e...

Recently Dizgah & Durrer have shown that the $E_g$ statistics, useful to test theories of modified gravity, is plagued by additional scale and bias dependent lensing contributions. In this work we develop and illustrate a method to remove these lensing terms by using in addition to the galaxy clustering data also shear data and the correlations of shear and galaxy clustering. We introduce a truly observable statistics termed $\tilde E_g$ which conserves the properties of scale and bias independe...

In this paper, we propose a new test to the cosmic distance duality relation (CDDR), $D_L=D_A(1+z)^2$, where $D_L$ and $D_A$ are the luminosity and angular diameter distances, respectively. The data used correspond to 61 Type Ia Supernova luminosity distances and $Y_{SZE}-Y_X$ measurements of 61 galaxy clusters obtained by the {\it Planck} mission and the deep XMM-Newton X-ray data, where $Y_{SZE}$ is the integrated comptonization parameter obtained via Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect observations and...

It is shown that the recent corpuscular description of gravity generically excludes de Sitter spacetime in any semiclassical version of f(R) gravity. A phantom phenomenology of the cosmic dynamics is also naturally excluded.

At the linear level, the gravitational wave (GW) spectrum predicted by inflation, and many of its alternatives, can have arbitrarily small amplitude and consequently an unconstrained tilt. However, at second order, tensor fluctuations are sourced by scalar fluctuations that have been measured in the cosmic microwave background (CMB). These second order fluctuations generically produce a minimum amount of tensor perturbations corresponding to a tensor-to-scalar ratio of $r\sim 10^{-6}$. Inverting...

We explore Lagrangian perturbation theory (LPT) for biased tracers in the presence of two fluids, focusing on the case of cold dark matter (CDM) and baryons. The presence of two fluids induces corrections to the Lagrangian bias expansion and tracer advection, both of which we formulate as expansions in the three linear modes of the Lagrangian equations of motion. We compute the linear-order two-fluid corrections in the Zeldovich approximation, finding that modifications to the bias expansion and...

Cosmic-ray (CR) antihelium can be an important observable for dark matter (DM) indirect searches due to extremely low secondary backgrounds towards low energies. In most DM models, the predicted CR antihelium flux is strongly correlated with that of CR antiprotons. Thus the upper limits on the DM annihilation cross sections from the current antiproton data can be used to place stringent limits on the maximal antihelium flux for the same model. Making use of the latest AMS-02 data on the antiprot...
We present a lattice formulation of an interaction ${\phi\over\Lambda} F\tilde F$ between an axion and some $U(1)$ gauge sector with the following properties: it reproduces the continuum theory up to $\mathcal{O}(dx_\mu^2)$ corrections, it preserves exact gauge invariance and shift symmetry on the lattice, and it is suitable for self-consistent expansion of the Universe. The lattice equations of motion can no longer be solved by explicit methods, but we propose an implicit method to overcome thi...

A recently proposed Dynamical Space-time Cosmology (DSC) that unifies dark energy and dark matter is studied. The general action of this scenario includes a Lagrange multiplier, which is coupled to the energy-momentum tensor and a scalar field which is different than quintessence. First, for various types of potentials, we implement a critical point analysis and we find solutions which lead to cosmic acceleration and under certain conditions to stable late-time attractors. Then the DSC cosmology...
