Title: Torsion bigravity: a purely geometric modified theory of gravity
I will present torsion bigravity, which is a theory of dynamical massive spin-2 field of geometrical origin (dynamical torsion field). I will cover various issues as:
- motivation and theoretical basement of this type of modified gravity;
- the torsion bigravity world: known solutions and their physical properties, phenomenological consequences.
In particular, I will discuss some consequences for the black hole physics.
