Bianchi type-I Dust Filled Accelerating Brans- Dicke Cosmology

30 Dec 2017  ·  Sharma Umesh Kumar, Goswami Gopi Kant, Pradhan Anirudh ·

In this paper, spatially homogeneous and anisotropic Bianchi type-I cosmological models of Brans-Dicke theory of gravitation are investigated. The model represents accelerating universe at present and is considered to be dominated by dark energy... Cosmological constant $\Lambda$ is considered as a candidate for the dark energy that has negative pressure and is responsible for the present acceleration. The derived model agrees at par with the recent SN Ia observations. We have set BD-coupling constant $\omega$ to be ~$40000$, ~seeing the solar system tests and evidences. We have discussed the various physical and geometrical properties of the models and have compared them with the corresponding relativistic models. read more
