An inflationary cosmological model in Dunn's scalartensor theory of gravitation
Abstract
The gravitational field equations in Dunn's scalartensor theory of gravitation are generalized by including a cosmological constant. The resulting equations are solved for a RobertsonWalker lineelement with flat threespace. The solution represents a cosmological model that develops into an inflationary era.
