Decaying Gravity
We consider the possibility of energy being exchanged between the scalar and matter fields in scalartensor theories of gravity. Such an exchange provides a new mechanism which can drive variations in the gravitational ... 
Diagnosing shock temperature with NH 3 and H 2 O profiles

Dodging the dark matter degeneracy while determining the dynamics of dark energy
(IOP Publishing, 20160501)One of the key issues in cosmology is to establish the nature of dark energy, and to determine whether the equation of state evolves with time. When estimating this from distance measurements there is a degeneracy with the ...

Errors in Estimating Omega_Lambda due to the Fluid Approximation
The matter content of the Universe is strongly inhomogeneous on small scales. Motivated by this fact, we consider a model of the Universe that has regularly spaced discrete masses, rather than a continuous fluid. The optical ... 
Exact cosmological solutions of scaleinvariant gravity theories
We have found new anisotropic vacuum solutions for the scaleinvariant gravity theories which generalise Einstein's general relativity to a theory derived from the Lagrangian $R^{1+\delta}$. These solutions are expanding ... 
Exact Evolution of Discrete Relativistic Cosmological Models
(20130911)We study the effects of inhomogeneities on the evolution of the Universe, by considering a range of cosmological models with discretized matter content. This is done using exact and fully relativistic methods that exploit ... 
Exact Friedmann Solutions in HigherOrder Gravity Theories
We find the general behaviour of homogeneous and isotropic cosmological models in some fourthorder theories of gravity. Explicit, exact, general solutions are given for both empty universes and those filled with a perfect ... 
The Existence of Godel, Einstein and de Sitter Universes
We determine the general conditions for the existence of Godel, Einstein static, and de Sitter universes in gravity theories derived from a Lagrangian that is an arbitrary function of the scalar curvature and Ricci and ...

First results from high redshift quasar searches in VIKING
(Queen Mary University of London, 201206)This thesis presents the discovery of the first luminous z & 6.5 quasars in the VISTA kilodegree Infrared Galaxy Survey (VIKING). After some basic quality control, quasar selection is investigated via use of initial data ...
