# Backreaction from inhomogeneous matter fields during large-scale structure formation

@article{Floerchinger2021BackreactionFI, title={Backreaction from inhomogeneous matter fields during large-scale structure formation}, author={Stefan Floerchinger and Nikolaos Tetradis and Urs Achim Wiedemann}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2021} }

We study how inhomogeneities of the cosmological fluid fields backreact on the homogeneous part of energy density and how they modify the Friedmann equations. In general, backreaction requires to go beyond the pressureless ideal fluid approximation, and this can lead to a reduced growth of cosmological large scale structure. Since observational evidence favours evolution close to the standard growing mode in the linear regime, we focus on two-component fluids in which the non-ideal fluid is… Expand

Large scale structure from viscous dark matter

- Physics
- 2015

Cosmological perturbations of sufficiently long wavelength admit a fluid dynamic description. We consider modes with wavevectors below a scale $k_m$ for which the dynamics is only mildly non-linear.… Expand

Does bulk viscosity create a viable unified dark matter model

- Physics
- 2009

We investigate in detail the possibility that a single imperfect fluid with bulk viscosity can replace the need for separate dark matter and dark energy in cosmological models. With suitable choices… Expand

Constraints on dissipative unified dark matter

Modern cosmology suggests that the Universe contains two dark components — dark matter and dark energy — both unkown in laboratory physics and both lacking direct evidence. Alternatively, a unified… Expand

Cosmological perturbation theory for the late Universe dominated by dark matter is extended beyond the perfect fluid approximation by taking the dark matter velocity dispersion tensor as an… Expand

New framework for analyzing the effects of small scale inhomogeneities in cosmology

We develop a new, mathematically precise framework for treating the effects of nonlinear phenomena occurring on small scales in general relativity. Our approach is an adaptation of Burnett's… Expand

A scenario in which the dark components of the Universe are manifestations of a single bulk viscous fluid, which is competitive in comparison with the currently most popular proposals for the description of the cosmological dark sector. Expand

Can structure formation influence the cosmological evolution

- Physics
- 2003

The back reaction of structure formation influences the cosmological evolution equation for the homogenous and isotropic average metric. In a cold dark matter universe this effect leads only to small… Expand

Cosmological Perturbation Theory in the Synchronous and Conformal Newtonian Gauges

This paper presents a systematic treatment of the linear theory of scalar gravitational perturbations in the synchronous gauge and the conformal Newtonian (or longitudinal) gauge. It differs from… Expand

Renormalization-group flow of the effective action of cosmological large-scale structures

Following an approach of Matarrese and Pietroni, we derive the functional renormalization group (RG) flow of the effective action of cosmological large-scale structures. Perturbative solutions of… Expand

Is there proof that backreaction of inhomogeneities is irrelevant in cosmology

- Physics
- 2015

No. In a number of papers Green and Wald argue that the standard FLRW model approximates our Universe extremely well on all scales, except close to strong field astrophysical objects. In particular,… Expand
