Title: Stability and superluminality of spherical DBI Galileon solutions

Abstract

We showed that, when considered as local modifications to gravity, such as in the solar system, there exists a region of parameter space in which spherically symmetric static solutions to a particular class of modified gravity theories exist and are stable.
