Title: Study of thermodynamic laws in f(R,T,R{sub μν}T{sup μν}) gravity

We study first and second laws of black hole thermodynamics at the apparent horizon of FRW spacetime in f(R,T,R{sub μν}T{sup μν}) gravity, where R, R{sub μν} are the Ricci scalar and Riemann tensor and T is the trace of the energy-momentum tensor T{sub μν}. We develop the Friedmann equations for any spatial curvature in this modified theory and show that these equations can be transformed to the form of Clausius relation T{sub h}S{sub eff} = δQ. Here T{sub h} is the horizon temperature, S{sub eff} is the entropy which contains contributions both from horizon entropy and additional entropy term introduced due to the non-equilibrating description and δQ is the energy flux across the horizon. The generalized second law of thermodynamics is also established in a more comprehensive form and one can recover the corresponding results in Einstein, f(R) and f(R,T) gravities. We discuss GSLT in the locality of assumption that temperature of matter inside the horizon is similar to that of horizon. Finally, we consider particular models in this theory and generate constraints on the coupling parameter for the validity of GSLT.
