Effects of neutrino mass hierarchies on dynamical dark energy models [CEA]


We investigate how three different possibilities of neutrino mass hierarchies, namely normal, inverted, and degenerate, can affect the observational constraints on three well known dynamical dark energy models, namely the Chevallier-Polarski-Linder, logarithmic, and the Jassal-Bagla-Padmanabhan parametrizations. In order to impose the observational constraints on the models, we performed a robust analysis using Planck 2015 temperature and polarization data, Supernovae type Ia from Joint Light curve analysis, baryon acoustic oscillations distance measurements, redshift space distortion characterized by $f(z)\sigma_8(z)$ data, weak gravitational lensing data from Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope Lensing Survey, and cosmic chronometers data plus the local value of the Hubble parameter. We find that the degenerate hierarchy scheme leads to significant variations on the model parameters in compared to other two neutrino mass hierarchies. It is observed that the fixation of a hierarchy scheme can play an important role in determining some crucial properties in the dynamical dark energy models. We also discussed that these dynamical dark energy models can assuage the current tension on the local Hubble parameter $H_0$.
