Abstract: This talk will consist of two parts. In the first part, I will present limits on graviton mass from the Abell 1689 galaxy cluster using existing dynamical mass models. In the second part, I will discuss discuss Shapiro delay of gravitational waves and will indicate implications for modified gravity theories using gravitational wave observations of GW170817.
