|Title:||Dynamical equivalence of f(R) gravity in Jordan and Einstein frames|
Pal, Sanchari; Saa, Alberto
|Abstract:||We investigate the dynamics of f(R) gravity in Jordan and Einstein frames. First, we perform a phase-space singularities analysis in both frames. We show that, typically, anisotropic singularities are absent in the Einstein frame, whereas they may appear in the Jordan frame. We conciliate this apparent inconsistency by showing that the necessary conditions for the existence of the Einstein frame are namely the same ones assuring the absence of the anisotropic singularities in the Jordan frame. In other words, we show that, at least in the context of Bianchi I cosmologies, the Einstein frame is available only when the original formulation in the Jordan frame is free of anisotropic singularities. Furthermore, we present a novel dynamical system formulation for anisotropic cosmologies in which both frames, provided they exist, will be manifestly equivalent from the dynamical point of view, even though they fail to be diffeomorphic in general. Our results could not only help the construction of viable (free of anisotropic singularities) f(R) cosmological models but also contribute to the still active debate on the physical interpretation of the two frames|
