The aim of the research programme is to provide a systematic way of constraining alternative theories of gravity based on both theoretical and observational considerations. An understanding of the cosmological dynamics in these theories is an important step in this investigation, as this will enable us to obtain the key features of the Cosmic Microwave Background spectrum and determine the structure formation scenario. Consequently, we will develop a new generation of tools, which will help us find constraints on the form of the actual theory of gravity.
