Statefinder diagnostic for the modified polytropic Cardassian universe
Abstract
We apply the statefinder diagnostic to the modified polytropic Cardassian universe in this work. We find that the statefinder diagnostic is quite effective to distinguish Cardassian models from a series of other cosmological models. The sr plane is used to classify the modified polytropic Cardassian models into six cases. The evolutionary trajectories in the sr plane for the cases with different n and {beta} reveal different evolutionary properties of the universe. In addition, we combine the observational H(z) data, the cosmic microwave background data, and the baryonic acoustic oscillation data to make a joint analysis. We find that case 2 can be excluded at the 68.3% confidence level and any case is consistent with the observations at the 95.4% confidence level.

In this paper, we apply the statefinder diagnostic to the cosmology with the abnormally weighting energy hypothesis (AWE cosmology), in which dark energy in the observational (ordinary matter) frame results from the violation of the weak equivalence principle by pressureless matter. It is found that there exist closed loops in the statefinder plane, which is an interesting characteristic of the evolution trajectories of statefinder parameters and can be used to distinguish AWE cosmology from other cosmological models.

Statefinder hierarchy: An extended null diagnostic for concordance cosmology
We show how higher derivatives of the expansion factor can be developed into a null diagnostic for concordance cosmology ({Lambda}CDM). It is well known that the Statefinder  the third derivative of the expansion factor written in dimensionless form, a{sup (3)}/aH{sup 3}, equals unity for {Lambda}CDM. We generalize this result and demonstrate that the hierarchy, a{sup (n)}/aH{sup n}, can be converted to a form that stays pegged at unity in concordance cosmology. This remarkable property of the Statefinder hierarchy enables it to be used as an extended null diagnostic for the cosmological constant. The Statefinder hierarchy combined with the growthmore » 
Statefinder diagnostic in a torsion cosmology
We apply the statefinder diagnostic to the torsion cosmology, in which an accounting for the accelerated universe is considered in term of a RiemannCartan geometry: dynamic scalar torsion. We find that there are some typical characteristic of the evolution of statefinder parameters for the torsion cosmology that can be distinguished from the other cosmological models. Furthermore, we also show that statefinder diagnostic has a direct bearing on the critical points. The statefinder diagnostic divides the torsion parameter a{sub 1} into differential ranges, which is in keeping with the requirement of dynamical analysis. In addition, we fit the scalar torsion modelmore » 
POLYTROPIC MODEL FITS TO THE GLOBULAR CLUSTER NGC 2419 IN MODIFIED NEWTONIAN DYNAMICS
We present an analysis of the globular cluster NGC 2419, using a polytropic model in modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) to reproduce recently published highquality data on the structure and kinematics of the system. We show that a specific MOND polytropic model of NGC 2419 suggested by a previous study can be completely ruled out by the data. Furthermore, the highest likelihood fit polytrope in MOND is a substantially worse model (by a factor of {approx}5000) than a Newtonian Michie model we studied previously. We conclude that the structure and dynamics of NGC 2419 favor Newtonian dynamics and do indeed challengemore » 
Cosmic age, statefinder, and Om diagnostics in the decaying vacuum cosmology
As an extension of the cosmological constant model ({lambda}CDM), the decaying vacuum (DV) model describes dark energy as a varying vacuum whose energy density decays linearly with the Hubble parameter at late times, {rho}{sub {lambda}}(t){proportional_to}H(t), and produces the matter component. We examine the highz cosmic age problem in the DV model, and compare it with {lambda}CDM and the YangMills condensate (YMC) dark energy model. Without employing a dynamical scalar field for dark energy, these three models share a similar behavior of latetime evolution. It is found that the DV model, like the YMC, can accommodate the highz quasar APM 08279+5255,more »
