Nonminimally Coupled Boltzmann Equation I: Foundations

18 Feb 2020 Bertolami Orfeu Gomes Cláudio

We derive the Boltzmann equation in the context of a gravity theory with non-minimal coupling between matter and curvature. We show that as the energy-momentum tensor is not conserved in these theories, it follows a condition on the normalisation of an homogeneous distribution function... (read more)
