Cosmological inviability of f(R,T) gravity

Cosmological inviability of f(R,T) gravity Among many alternative gravitational theories to General Relativity (GR), f(R,T) gravity (where R is the Ricci scalar and T the trace of the energy-momentum tensor) has been widely studied recently. By adding a matter contribution to the gravitational Lagrangian, f(R,T) theories have become an interesting extension to GR displaying a broad phenomenology in astrophysics and cosmology. In this paper, we discuss, however, the difficulties appearing in explaining a viable and realistic cosmology within the f(R,T) class of theories. Our results challenge the viability of f(R,T) as an alternative modification of gravity. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review D American Physical Society (APS)
