Friedmann Cosmology with a Cosmological Constant in the Modified Brans / Dicke Theory
Abstract
Homogenous isotropic cosmologies in the presence of a cosmological constant A are studied in the modified BransDicke theory. A class of exact solutions are obtained in Dicke's revised units for empty space as well as for the models filled with dust or radiation. Behaviour of these models near the singularity are discussed.
