We study time–dependent backgrounds in the low energy regimes of string theories. In particular the emphasis is on the general study of exotic phenomena such as positive acceleration and

Phase space analysis of quintessence cosmologies with a double exponential potential

We use phase space methods to investigate closed, flat, and open Friedmann–Robertson–Walker cosmologies with a scalar potential given by the sum of two exponential terms. The form of the potential is

Gauss–Bonnet cosmologies: crossing the phantom divide and the transition from matter dominance to dark energy

Dark energy cosmologies with an equation of state parameter w less than −1 are often found to violate the null energy condition and show unstable behaviour. A solution to this problem may require the


Bulk dark energy (DE) properties are determined by the redshift evolution of its pressure-to-density ratio, wde(z). An experimental goal is to decide if the DE is dynamical, as in the quintessence

Inflation and quintessence: theoretical approach of cosmological reconstruction

In the first part of this paper, we outline the construction of an inflationary cosmology in the framework where inflation is described by a universally evolving scalar field ϕ with potential V (ϕ).

The old and new universe in the era of precision cosmology

These are privileged times to be a cosmologist. Recent years have witnessed unprecedented progress in observational and computational techniques and we now are able to quantify cosmological

Intermediate Inflation or Late Time Acceleration

The expansion rate of “intermediate inflation” lies between the exponential and power law expansion but corresponding accelerated expansion does not start at the onset of cosmological evolution.



Accelerating cosmologies from compactification.

A solution of the (4+n)-dimensional vacuum Einstein equations is found for which spacetime is compactified on an n-dimensional compact hyperbolic manifold (n> or =2) of time-varying volume to a flat

Exponential potentials and cosmological scaling solutions

Scalar fields have come to play a central role in current models of the early universe. The self-interaction potential energy density of such a field is undiluted by the expansion of the universe and

De Sitter vacua in string theory

We outline the construction of metastable de Sitter vacua of type IIB string theory. Our starting point is highly warped IIB compactifications with nontrivial NS and RR three-form fluxes. By
