  8. Cosmic acceleration dark energy? Dynamics equations: (Violate the Strong Energy Condition:exotic energy component) What is the nature of the dark energy?

  9. Dark Energy? R G Cai, 2007 HEP&NP Observational Data Theoretical Assumptions General Relativity Cosmological Principle Model III ModelI Model II

  10. Model I: Modifications of Gravitational Theory UV: ~ 0.1 mm IR: ~ solar scale 1) GR’s test UV: quantum gravity effect IR: cosmic scale Brane world scenarios Scalar-tensor theory …… 2) Modify GR

  11. 1) “ Is Cosmic Speed-up due to New Gravitational Physics ” by S. M. Carroll et al. astro-ph/0306438, Phys.Rev. D70 (2004) 043528 Consider a modification becoming important at extremely low curvature gr-qc/0511034: An alternative explanation of the conflict between 1/R gravity and solar system tests C.G. Shao, R.G. Cai, B. Wang and R.K. Su Phys.Lett. B633 (2006) 164-166

  12. Making a conformal transformation yields a scalar field with potential: (1) Eternal de Sitter; (2) power-law acceleration; (3) future singularity

  13. Viable f(R) dark energy models: (Hu andSawicki, 2007) (Starobinsky, 2007) They satisfy f (R=0)=0, the cosmological constant disappears in flat spacetime. n >0.9 local gravity constraints can be satisfied (S.Tsujikawa,2008) f(T) model, 2010: Linder, Geng, Yu….

  14. 2) Brane World Scenarios: • N. Arkani-Hamed et al, 1998 • factorizable product • 2) L. Randall and R. Sundrum, 1999 • warped product in AdS_5 y RS1: RS2: 3) DGP model, 2000 a brane embedded in a Minkovski space

  15. a) A popular model: RSII scenario where = 0 Fine-Tuning

  16. b) DGP Model Then corresponding Friedman equation: Two branches: (+): normal one; phantom if Lambda=\0. (-): late-time acceleration

  17. c) “Dark Energy” on the brane world scenario “Braneworld models of dark energy” by V. Sahni and Y. Shtanov, astro-ph/0202346, JCAP 0311 (2003) 014 When m=0:

  18. In general they have two branches:

  19. “Crossing w=-1 in Gauss-Bonnet Brane World with Induced Gravity ” by R.G. Cai,H.S. Zhang and A. Wang, hep-th/0505186 Consider the model

  21. Effective dynamic equations:

  26. Model II: Various Dark Energy Models: Acts as Source of E’eq Some aspects on dark energy: • Equation of state from observational data • Various phenomenological models • How to distinguish those models and new cosmic probers

  27. (1)EOS from observational data a) Cosmological constant: w = - 1 b) as a constant: c) expansion by redshift: d) -0.11 < 1+w < 0.14 expansion by scale factor: parameterization of EOS

  28. w = const., phantom ? ( R. Caldwell, astro-ph/9908168, Phys.Lett.B545:23-29,2002) Note:w <-1: phantom, w >-1: quintessence, w =-1:cosmological const

  39. Dark energy : a very tiny positive cosmological constant ? QFT, a very successful theory This is a problem? I will come back again.

  40. Old Problem on CC: why S. Weinberg, Rev. Mod. Phys. 61, 1 (1989) • Supersymmetry; (2) Anthropic princple; • (3) Self-tuning mechanism; (4) Modifying gravity • (5) Quantum cosmology New Problem on CC: why

  41. Some remarks: • 1) The cosmological constant is undistinguished from the vacuum • expectation value of quantum fields • 2) The cosmological constant problem is an issue in quantum gravity • 3) The cosmological constant problem is an UV problem • 4) The dark energy problem is an IR problem • 5) To resolve the dark energy problem: quantum properties of gravity, • UV/IR relation….. • 6) Of course, other viewpoints

  42. Application of holography to dark energy:UV/IR Relation [A.Cohen, D. Kaplan and A. Nelson, PRL 82, 4971 (1999)] Consider an effective quantum field with UV cutoff Lambda in a box with size L, its entropy Black hole mass as an upper bound

  43. Holographic principle? V,A E,S R i) Bekenstein Bound: ii) Holographic Bound: iii) UV/IR Mixture:

  44. UV/IR relation, effective cosmological constant and dark energy R What is the IR cutoff L? A. Cohen et al, (1999): L~Hubble horizon S. Hsu (2004): L~Hubble horizon M. Li (2004): L~particle horizon, event horizon ….

  45. Holographic dark energy (Hsu, 2004, Li, 2004) ? What is the IR Cutoff L for the universe? • Hubble horizon? L=1/H • Particle horizon? • Event horizon? (4) Other Choices?

  46. While the holographic energy with event horizon works well, however, • Issues here: • The event horizon is a global concept for manifold; • It exists only for eternal accelerated universe; • It is determined by future evolution of the universe New solution: Causal connection scale: C.G.
