We consider a subclass of degenerate higher-order scalar-tensor (DHOST) theories in which gravitational waves propagate at the speed of light and do not decay into scalar fluctuations. The screening mechanism in DHOST theories evading these two gr...

We show explicitly that the nonminimal coupling between the scalar field and the Ricci scalar in 2D dilaton gravity can be recast in the form of kinetic gravity braiding (KGB). This is as it should be, because KGB is the 2D version of the Horndesk...
