GR has been a successful theory from mm length scales to Cosmological scales Then why Modify Gravity ?

Why Modify Gravity ? There is little doubt that GR breaks down at high energy (Mpl ? TeV ???)

Why Modify Gravity ? There is little doubt that GR breaks down at high energy (Mpl ? TeV ???) Does gravity break down in the IR ?) Late time acceleration & CC problem First signs of the breakdown of GR on cosmological scales ?

Massive Gravity In GR (or Newtonian gravity), Gravity has an infinite range If gravity was mediated by a massive particle, the Newtons law would shut down at some distance ~ m -1

Worries 1.Tuning issue…

15
To be consistent with observations, the graviton mass ought to be tuned, Which is the same tuning as the vacuum energy, Tuning / Fine-tuning

27
Ghost-free Massive Gravity One can construct a consistent theory of massive gravity around any reference metric which - propagates 5 dof in the graviton (free of the BD ghost) - one of which is a helicity-0 mode which behaves as a scalar field couples to matter - hides itself via a Vainshtein mechanism Vainshtein, PLB39, 393 (1972)

28
But... The Vainshtein mechanism always comes hand in hand with superluminalities... This doesnt necessarily mean CTCs, but - there is a family of preferred frames - there is no absolute notion of light-cone. Burrage, CdR, Heisenberg & Tolley, 1111.5549

29
But... The Vainshtein mechanism always comes hand in hand with superluminalities... The presence of the helicity-0 mode puts strong bounds on the graviton mass

But... The Vainshtein mechanism always comes hand in hand with superluminalities... The presence of the helicity-0 mode puts strong bounds on the graviton mass Is there a different region in parameter space where the helicity-0 mode could also be absent ???

31
Change of Ref. metric Hassan & Rosen, 2011 Consider massive gravity around dS as a reference ! dS Metric Metric dS is still a maximally symmetric ST Same amount of symmetry as massive gravity around Minkowski !

Non-linear partially massless

46
Lets start with ghost-free theory of MG, But around dS dS ref metric

47
Non-linear partially massless Lets start with ghost-free theory of MG, But around dS And derive the decoupling limit (ie leading interactions for the helicity-0 mode) dS ref metric But we need to properly identify the helicity-0 mode first....

48
Helicity-0 on dS on de Sitter on Minkowski To identify the helicity-0 mode on de Sitter, we copy the procedure on Minkowski. Can embed d-dS into (d+1)-Minkowski: CdR & Sébastien Renaux-Petel, arXiv:1206.3482

49
Helicity-0 on dS on de Sitter on Minkowski To identify the helicity-0 mode on de Sitter, we copy the procedure on Minkowski. Can embed d-dS into (d+1)-Minkowski: CdR & Sébastien Renaux-Petel, arXiv:1206.3482

50
Helicity-0 on dS on de Sitter on Minkowski To identify the helicity-0 mode on de Sitter, we copy the procedure on Minkowski. Can embed d-dS into (d+1)-Minkowski: behaves as a scalar in the dec. limit and captures the physics of the helicity-0 mode CdR & Sébastien Renaux-Petel, arXiv:1206.3482

51
Helicity-0 on dS on de Sitter on Minkowski To identify the helicity-0 mode on de Sitter, we copy the procedure on Minkowski. The covariantized metric fluctuation is expressed in terms of the helicity-0 mode as CdR & Sébastien Renaux-Petel, arXiv:1206.3482 in any dimensions...

52
Decoupling limit on dS Using the properly identified helicity-0 mode, we can derive the decoupling limit on dS Since we need to satisfy the Higuchi bound, CdR & Sébastien Renaux-Petel, arXiv:1206.3482

53
Decoupling limit on dS Using the properly identified helicity-0 mode, we can derive the decoupling limit on dS Since we need to satisfy the Higuchi bound, The resulting DL resembles that in Minkowski (Galileons), but with specific coefficients... CdR & Sébastien Renaux-Petel, arXiv:1206.3482

54
DL on dS CdR & Sébastien Renaux-Petel, arXiv:1206.3482 + non-diagonalizable terms mixing h and. d terms + d-3 terms (d-1) free parameters (m 2 and 3,...,d)

55
DL on dS The kinetic term vanishes if All the other interactions vanish simultaneously if CdR & Sébastien Renaux-Petel, arXiv:1206.3482 + non-diagonalizable terms mixing h and. d terms + d-3 terms (d-1) free parameters (m 2 and 3,...,d)

56
Massless limit In the massless limit, the helicity-0 mode still couples to matter The Vainshtein mechanism is active to decouple this mode

57
Partially massless limit Coupling to matter eg.

58
Partially massless limit The symmetry cancels the coupling to matter There is no Vainshtein mechanism, but there is no vDVZ discontinuity...

59
Partially massless limit Unless we take the limit without considering the PM parameters. In this case the standard Vainshtein mechanism applies.

60
Partially massless We uniquely identify the non-linear candidate for the Partially Massless theory to all orders. In the DL, the helicity-0 mode entirely disappear in any dimensions What happens beyond the DL is still to be worked out As well as the non-linear realization of the symmetry...
