On Hořava-Lifshitz cosmology

  • Department of Physics, and State Key Laboratory of Nuclear Physics and Technology, Peking University, Beijing 100871, China

Abstract: We give a brief overview of the Ho&#345;avity theory, its modifications and its implications in cosmology. In particular, we discuss the various issues on the gravitational scalar mode, including its decoupling, its role as inflaton and its stability. Our analysis shows that the scalar mode could decouple naturally at λ=1 due to the extra gauge symmetry. On the other hand, the fact that the scalar mode becomes ghost when 1/3< λ < 1 is a real challenge to the theory. We try to overcome this problem by modifying the action such that the RG flow lies outside the problematic region. We discuss the cosmological implications of the theory.
