    • Abstract

       

      Dynamical aspects of an anisotropic cosmological model are investigated in an extended gravity theory. A hybrid scale factor is employed to investigate the cosmic dynamics. The hybrid scale factor simulates a cosmic transit behaviour from a decelerated phase of expansion to an accelerated phase. Theparameters of the hybrid scale factors have been constrained from the cosmic transit behaviour and the signature flipping behaviour of the deceleration parameter. The evolutionary aspect of the model has been discussed through the dynamical evolution of the equation of state parameter and the energy conditions. From the present model, scalar fields have been reconstructed using certain reconstruction techniques. Different diagnostic methods have been applied to analyse the viability of the constructed model. The presentmodel almost looks like a cosmological constant for a substantial cosmic time zone and does not show any slowing down feature in near future.

    • Continuous Article Publication

      Posted on January 27, 2016

      Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
