Abstract

We use a combination of simulated cosmological probes as expected from the forthcoming European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT), to constrain the class of string-inspired runaway dilaton models of Damour, Piazza and Veneziano. We improve previously existing analyses investigating in detail the degeneracies between the parameters ruling the coupling of the dilaton field to the other components of the universe, and we consider three different scenarios for the dark sector couplings. We show the constraining power of the E-ELT and highlight how degeneracies will affect this in different fiducial cosmologies.
