Cosmological Consequences of Gravitation: Structure Formation and Gravitational Waves

Laura Grace Book
This thesis contains work on four topics which fit into two broad areas of research: the quest to understand structure formation and through it the properties of the dark matter, and the search for primordial gravitational radiation. The first project details the effect of an accretion shock on the colors of satellites in galaxy clusters. A new model of ram pressure stripping including an accretion shock with variable radius is developed and implemented in the...
