# Perturbations in cosmologies with a scalar field and a perfect fluid

@article{Bartolo2004PerturbationsIC, title={Perturbations in cosmologies with a scalar field and a perfect fluid}, author={Nicola Bartolo and Pier Stefano Corasaniti and Andrew R. Liddle and Michael Malquarti}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2004}, volume={70}, pages={043532} }

We study the properties of cosmological density perturbations in a multi-component system consisting of a scalar field and a perfect fluid. We discuss the number of degrees of freedom completely describing the system, introduce a full set of dynamical gauge-invariant equations in terms of the curvature and entropy perturbations, and display an efficient formulation of these equations as a first-order system linked by a fairly sparse matrix. Our formalism includes spatial gradients, extending…
