« Modified gravity for dark energy »

Karim Noui
Univ. Tours (Tours, France)

Once again, Einstein was right! The recent detection of gravitational waves is exceptional, but it confirms what Einstein predicted 100 years ago... However, there are reasons to think that general relativity may not be the "ultimate" theory of space-time and could be modified at very "large" scale and/or at very "short" scale. During this colloquium, I am going to present the reasons why gravity is expected to be modified and also how it can be modified... hoping for a detection of these modifications in the near future, maybe thanks to the gravitational waves.
