Finsler-Randers Cosmology: dynamical analysis and growth of matter perturbations. (arXiv:1709.03748v1 [gr-qc])

We study for the first time the dynamical properties and the growth index of linear matter perturbations of the Finsler-Randers (FR) cosmological model, for which we consider that the cosmic fluid contains matter, radiation and a scalar field. Initially, for various FR scenarios we implement a critical point analysis and we find solutions which provide cosmic acceleration and under certain circumstances we can have de-Sitter points as stable late-time attractors. Then we derive the growth index of matter fluctuations in various Finsler-Randers cosmologies. Considering cold dark matter and neglecting the scalar field component from the perturbation analysis we find that the asymptotic value of the growth index is $\gamma_{\infty}^{(FR)}\approx\frac {9}{16}$, which is close to that of the concordance $\Lambda$ cosmology, $\gamma^{(\Lambda)} \approx\frac{6}{11}$. In this context, we show that the current FR model provides the same Hubble expansion with that of Dvali, Gabadadze and Porrati 查看全文>>
