Revisiting the matter power spectra in f(R) gravity Thumbnail

In this paper, we study the nonlinear matter power spectrum in a specific family of f(R) models that can reproduce the ΛCDM background expansion history, using high resolution N-body simulations based on the ecosmog code. We measure the matter power spectrum in the range of 0.05h  Mpc−110−3, we find no chameleon screening in dense regions at late times (z<3), which means that those models could be ruled out due to the factor-of-1/3 enhancement to the strength of Newtonian gravity. We also give the best-fit parameters for a generalized parametrized post-Friedman fitting formula, which works well for the models studied here.
