An isotropic homogeneous cosmological model with Robertson-Walker line element is studied in general scalar tensor theory where the parameter

Extended inflation solution in Brans-Dicke theory given by Mathiazhagan and Johri (MJ) is shown as the unique solution only if the scale factor is assumed to be a power function of the scalar field. Only the consistent solution amongst the set of solutions given by Patra, Roy and Ray is found identical to the MJ solution. Both exponential inflation and power function inflation are studied in general scalar tensor theory where the parameter to is a function of the scalar, field. It is noted that exponential inflation is forbidden in Brans-Dicke theory where

The full version of the causal thermodynamics of non-equilibrium phenomena is discussed in the context of the flat Friedmann-Robertson-Walker cosmological model. Power law solutions for the scale factor are shown to exist. It is also shown that the temporal behaviour of the temperature depends on the functional dependence of the coefficient of bulk viscosity on density.

The total energy of the universe has been calculated assuming that it is the sum of the contributions from the matter part and gravitational part. The calculations involve the use of Einstein pseudotensor. Calculations have been carried out in some specific examples of spacetime geometries. In some cases the total energy is indeed zero confirming previous results but in other cases the total energy is nonzero. So Rosen’s idea that the pseudotensorial calculations will lead to the result that the total energy of the universe is zero, is very much model dependent.

In this work we check the validity of the no scalar hair theorem in charged axisymmetric stationary black holes for a wide class of scalar tensor theories.
