Anisotropic deformations of spatially open cosmology in massive gravity theory
Abstract
We combine analytical and numerical methods to study anisotropic deformations of the spatially open homogeneous and isotropic cosmology in the ghost free massive gravity theory with flat reference metric. We find that if the initial perturbations are not too strong then the physical metric relaxes back to the isotropic de Sitter state. However, the dumping of the anisotropies is achieved at the expense of exciting the Stueckelberg fields in such a way that the reference metric changes and does not share anymore with the physical metric the same rotational and translational symmetries. As a result, the universe evolves towards a fixed point which does not coincide with the original solution, but for which the physical metric is still de Sitter. If the initial perturbation is strong, then its evolution generically leads to a singular anisotropic state or, for some parameter values, to a decay into flat spacetime. We also present an infinite dimensional family of new homogeneous and isotropic cosmologies in the theory.

We study anisotropic cosmology in Horava's gravity theory and obtain Kasnertype solutions, valid for any number, d, of spatial dimensions. The corresponding exponents satisfy two relations, one involving the marginal coupling {lambda}. Also, Horava's (super)renormalizable theory predicts (super)stiff matter whose equation of state is p=w{rho}, with w{>=}1. We discuss briefly the implications of these results for the nature of cosmological collapse.

Quasilocal energy for threedimensional massive gravity solutions with chiral deformations of AdS{sub 3} boundary conditions
We consider critical gravity in three dimensions; that is, the New Massive Gravity theory formulated about Antide Sitter (AdS) space with the specific value of the graviton mass for which it results dual to a twodimensional conformai field theory with vanishing central charge. As it happens with Kerr black holes in fourdimensional critical gravity, in threedimensional critical gravity the BañadosTeitelboimZanelli black holes have vanishing mass and vanishing angular momentum. However, provided suitable asymptotic conditions are chosen, the theory may also admit solutions carrying nonvanishing charges. Here, we give simple examples of exact solutions that exhibit fallingoff conditions that are evenmore » 
Bounce and cyclic cosmology in extended nonlinear massive gravity
We investigate nonsingular bounce and cyclic cosmological evolutions in a universe governed by the extended nonlinear massive gravity, in which the graviton mass is promoted to a scalarfield potential. The extra freedom of the theory can lead to certain energy conditions violations and drive cyclicity with two different mechanisms: either with a suitably chosen scalarfield potential under a given Stückelbergscalar function, or with a suitably chosen Stückelbergscalar function under a given scalarfield potential. Our analysis shows that extended nonlinear massive gravity can alter significantly the evolution of the universe at both early and late times. 
Cosmology in general massive gravity theories
We study the cosmological FRW flat solutions generated in general massive gravity theories. Such a model are obtained adding to the Einstein General Relativity action a peculiar non derivative potentials, function of the metric components, that induce the propagation of five gravitational degrees of freedom. This large class of theories includes both the case with a residual Lorentz invariance as well as the case with rotational invariance only. It turns out that the Lorentzbreaking case is selected as the only possibility. Moreover it turns out that that perturbations around strict Minkowski or dS space are strongly coupled. The upshot ismore »
