Tests of Gravitation at Solar System Scale Beyond PPN Formalism
Presented by Aurélien Hees
Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology

Monday, December 9, 2013
12:00 noon in 169-336

In this presentation, the current tests of gravitation available at Solar System scales will briefly be recalled. These tests rely mainly on two frameworks: the PPN framework and the search for a fifth force. Some motivations will be given to look for deviations from General Relativity in other frameworks than the two extensively considered. A recent analysis of Cassini data in an MOND framework will be presented. Furthermore, possibilities to constrain Standard Model Extension parameters using Solar System data will be developed.
