Modified gravity with hydrodynamics
I will give an overview of the work I have done during my PhD. We’ve performed a series of hydrodynamic N-Body simulations for several modified gravity theories, with the intent of studying how modified gravity affects the baryonic component of galaxy clusters. We study the power spectra and cluster profiles for the symmetron and f(R) modified gravity theories, and attempt to find observations to compare our results to.
