Title: Exploring the Fundamental Origin of Cosmic Acceleration

Abstract

This final report describes the work undertaken in the award 'Exploring the Fundamental Origin of Cosmic Acceleration' which considers a class of infrared modified theories of gravity, namely massive gravity, developed by the PI, and its extensions, which attempt to provide an alternative description for the late time cosmic acceleration. The program was concerned with the cosmological predictions of these theories, together with their consistency as quantum effective field theories. Some of the results of the program relate to the uniqueness and special properties of massive gravity theories, some discovered dualities, and cosmological and observational predictions such as bounds on the graviton mass.
