We obtain cosmological solutions which admit emergent universe (EU) scenario in the framework of Einstein Gauss–Bonnet (GB) gravity coupled with a dilaton field in 4-dimensions. The coupling parameter of the GB terms and the dilaton in the theory are determined for obtaining an EU scenario. The corresponding dilaton potential which admits such scenario is determined. It is found that the GB terms coupled with a dilaton field plays an important role in describing the dynamics of the evolution of… 

Emergent universe with wormholes in massive gravity

An emergent universe (EU) scenario is proposed to obtain a universe free from big-bang singularity. In this framework the present universe emerged from a static Einstein universe phase in the

Emergent universe with scalar (or tachyonic) field in higher derivative theory

We consider a spatially homogeneous and isotropic flat Robertson-Walker model filled with a scalar (or tachyonic) field minimally coupled to gravity in the framework of higher derivative theory. We

Stability of the Einstein static Universe in Einstein–Cartan–Brans–Dicke gravity

In the present work we consider the existence and stability of Einstein static ES Universe in Brans–Dicke (BD) theory with non-vanishing spacetime torsion. In this theory, torsion field can be

History of cosmic evolution with modified Gauss–Bonnet-dilatonic coupled term

Gauss–Bonnet-dilatonic coupling in four dimensions plays an important role to explain late-time cosmic evolution. However, this term is an outcome of the low energy string effective action and thus

Stability of the Einstein static universe in f(R, T) gravity

The Einstein static (ES) universe has played a major role in various emergent scenarios recently proposed in order to cure the problem of the initial singularity of the standard model of cosmology.

Emergent universe with interacting fluids and the generalized second law of thermodynamics

We investigate the emergent Universe (EU) scenario in the presence of interacting fluids. The nonlinear equation of state (EoS) considered in the general theory of relativity for obtaining the EU is

Stability of the Einstein Static Universe in $4 D$ Gauss-Bonnet Gravity

By rescaling the Gauss-Bonnet (GB) coupling constant $\alpha \rightarrow \alpha/(D-4)$ and considering the $D \rightarrow 4$ limit, the GB gravity gives rise to nontrivial modification of general



Dark energy and cosmological solutions in second-order string gravity

We study the cosmological evolution based on a D-dimensional action in low-energy effective string theory in the presence of second-order curvature corrections and a modulus scalar field (a dilaton

An attempt has been made to construct a scenario which includes a spontaneous compactification and an inflationary epoch followed by a four-dimensional radiation-dominated stage and reveals a rich structure of the theory due to the presence of Gauss-Bonnet terms.

On compatibility of string effective action with an accelerating universe

In this paper, we fully investigate the cosmological effects of the moduli-dependent one-loop corrections to the gravitational couplings of the string effective action to explain the cosmic

Dark energy in modified Gauss-Bonnet gravity: Late-time acceleration and the hierarchy problem

Dark energy cosmology is considered in a modified Gauss-Bonnet (GB) model of gravity where an arbitrary function of the GB invariant, f(G), is added to the general relativity action. We show that a

Emergent universe and the phantom tachyon model

In this work, I have considered that the universe is filled with normal matter and a phantom field (or tachyonic field). If the universe is filled with a scalar field, Ellis et al have shown that an

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

Towards Inflation and Accelerating Cosmologies in String-Generated Gravity Models

The string $\alpha^\prime$-correction to the usual Einstein action comprises a Gauss-Bonnet integrand multiplied by non-trivial functions of the modulus field $\chi$ and/or the dilaton field $\phi$.

Emergent universe in brane world scenario with Schwarzschild–de Sitter bulk

A model of an emergent universe is obtained in brane world. Here the bulk energy is in the form of cosmological constant, while the brane consists of a fluid satisfying an equation of state of the

Existence of Einstein static universes and their stability in fourth-order theories of gravity

We investigate whether or not an Einstein static universe is a solution to the cosmological equations in f(R) gravity. It is found that only one class of f(R) theories admits an Einstein static
