Description

Galileons appear in the low-energy limit of several cosmologically motivated theories, e.g. Massive Gravity, Bigravity and DGP. Yet we are only just beginning to understand some of their features. I will discuss newly discovered dualities and enhanced symmetries for (subsets of) Galileons and how they are related to scalar-theories of gravity and Massive gravity/Bigravity in particular.
