Emergent Anisotropies and Forecast for future surveys

In this project we will investigate the possibility of a non-standard metric (i.e., non-Friedmann Robertson Walker) cosmology. In particular, we are currently working out a 2-form field model that would exhibit a special kind of cosmological anisotropy na turally. We will have to write down and s...
