Effect of chameleons on the mass of a galaxy cluster

Detta är en Master-uppsats från Uppsala universitet/Teoretisk astrofysik

Nyckelord: Chameleons; modified gravity; galaxy cluster;

Sammanfattning: Chameleons are scalar fields coming from modied gravity theories and can be possible explanations for Dark Energy. They cause a fifth force and have a screening mechanism which allows this force to avoid solar system constraints. In this thesis, astrophysical consequences of the potential presence of the chameleon field will be studied. More precisely, the difference between the hydrostatical and the weak lensing mass of galaxy clusters due to the effect of the chameleon fifth force is discussed.
