Properties of homogeneous cosmologies in scalar tensor theories

  title={Properties of homogeneous cosmologies in scalar tensor theories},
  author={S. Fay},
We study the isotropisation of the homogeneous but anisotropic Bianchi class A models in presence of a minimally coupled and massive scalar field with or without a perfect fluid. To this end, we use the Hamiltonian formalism of Arnowitt, Deser and Misner(ADM) and the dynamical systems analysis methods. Our results allow to define three kinds of isotropisation called class 1, 2 and 3. We have specifically studied the class 1 and obtained some general constraints on scalar-tensor theories which… Expand
