Model for a Universe described by a non-minimally coupled scalar field and interacting dark matter
In this work the evolution of a Universe model is investigated where a scalar field, non-minimally coupled to space-time curvature, plays the role of quintessence and drives the Universe to a present
On the singularities of gravity in the presence of non-minimally coupled scalar fields
We investigate the robustness of some recent results obtained for homogeneous and isotropic cosmological models with conformally coupled scalar fields. For this purpose, we investigate anisotropic
Dynamical equivalence of f(R) gravity in Jordan and Einstein frames
We investigate the dynamics of $f(R)$ gravity in Jordan and Einstein frames. First, we perform a phase-space singularities analysis in both frames. We show that, typically, anisotropic singularities
Singularities of gravity in the presence of nonminimally coupled scalar fields
We investigate the robustness of some recent results obtained for homogeneous and isotropic cosmological models with conformally coupled scalar fields. For this purpose, we investigate anisotropic
Sur la variation des constantes de Newton et d’Einstein
According to the general theory of relativity, the current paradigm for gravita- tion and concordant observational data, about 95% of the Universe’s content is only perceivable through gravitational

Four-dimensional quantum gravity in the conformal sector.
TLDR
It is argued that this theory describes 4D gravity at large distances and provides a framework for a dynamical solution of the cosmological-constant problem.

TLDR
It is found that the coupling effect prevents the chaotic inflationary scenario from working unless xi is at least smaller than 10/sup -3/ or negative.
A Crucial Ingredient of Inflation
Nonminimal coupling of the inflaton field to the Ricci curvature of spacetime is generally unavoidable, and the paradigm of inflation should be generalized by including the corresponding term ξ Rφ2/2
Change of signature in classical relativity
The authors point out that the classical Einstein field equations, suitably interpreted, allow a change of signature of spacetime. Specific examples of such changes are constructed in the case of

TLDR
The details of soft inflationary models, which have two scalar fields: one the standard inflaton, whose potential is exponentially coupled to the other field, are analyzed.
Scalar-tensor gravity in an accelerating universe
We consider scalar-tensor theories of gravity in an accelerating universe. The equations for the background evolution and the perturbations are given in full generality for any parametrization of the
Cosmological scaling solutions of nonminimally coupled scalar fields
We study the existence and stability of cosmological scaling solutions of a nonminimally coupled scalar field evolving in either an exponential or inverse power law potential. We show that, for
Quantum Fields in Curved Space
This book presents a comprehensive review of the subject of gravitational effects in quantum field theory. Although the treatment is general, special emphasis is given to the Hawking black hole
The dynamical system approach to scalar field cosmology
A spatially flat FLRW universe (motivated by inflation) is studied; by a dimensional reduction of the dynamical equations of scalar field cosmology, it is demonstrated that a spatially flat universe
