Abstract

Modified gravity and massive neutrino cosmologies are two of the most interesting scenarios that have been recently explored to account for possible observational deviations from the concordance Λ cold dark matter (ΛCDM) model. In this context, we investigated the large-scale structure of the Universe by exploiting the DUSTGRAIN-pathfinder simulations that implement, simultaneously, the effects of f(R) gravity and massive neutrinos. To study the possibility of breaking the degeneracy between these two effects, we analysed the redshift-space distortions in the clustering of dark matter haloes at different redshifts. Specifically, we focused on the monopole and quadrupole of the two-point correlation function, both in real and redshift space. The deviations with respect to ΛCDM model have been quantified in terms of the linear growth rate parameter. We found that redshift-space distortions provide a powerful probe to discriminate between ΛCDM and modified gravity models, especially at high redshifts (z ≥ 1), even in the presence of massive neutrinos.
