Cláudio Filipe Vieira Gomes
Testing Alternative Theories of Gravity with Cosmic Transients and Cosmology from SKA
Institution Center: Departamento de Ciências da Física, Química e Engenharia da Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade dos Açores
State: ongoing
Objectives:

This project aims at exploring the still unknown Fast Radio Bursts and assessing which gravity theory best describes such phenomena, resorting to observational data. Hence, models within General Relativity including Dark Matter and Dark Energy shall be analysed, as well as descriptions based on alternative models of gravity which allow for mimicking the dark components.
