YITP International Molecule-type Workshop
"Nonlinear massive gravity theory and its observational test"
23rd July - 9th August 2012
Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics, K202
It has been thought that the massive gravity theory has a serious problem of ghost.
However, a non-linear massive gravity theory which overcomes this problem was proposed
last year. Interestingly, this theory may give us a natural explanation of the current
acceleration of our Universe. Therefore, we will explore this theory and formulate
several elegant procedures to test it from observations/experiments.
