$\sigma_8$ Discrepancy and its solutions
SUBHENDRA MOHANTY SAMPURN ANAND PRAKRUT CHAUBAL ARINDAM MAZUMDAR PRIYANK PARASHARI
In the recent past, measurements of $\sigma_8$ from large scale structure observations have shown some discordance with its value obtained from Planck CMB within the $\Lambda$CDM frame. This discordance naturally leads to a mismatch in the value of $H_0$ also. Under the presumption that these discordances are not due to systematics, several attempts have been made to ameliorate the tensions. In this article, we describe the methods of determination of σ8 from large scale as well as CMB observations.We discuss that these discrepancies vanish if we consider the energy momentum tensor for an imperfect fluid which could arise due to self-interaction of dark matter or in an effective description of large scale structure.We demonstrate how the presence of viscosities in cold dark fluid on large scales ameliorate the problem elegantly than other solutions. We also estimate the neutrino mass in the viscous cosmological setup.

Continuous Article Publishing mode
Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
