Anisotropic massive strings in the scalar-tensor theory of gravitation

Anil Kumar Yadav


We present the model of an anisotropic universe with string fluid as the source of matter within the framework of the scalar-tensor theory of gravitation. An exact solution of field equations is obtained by applying Berman’s law of variation to Hubble’s parameter which yields a constant value of the deceleration parameter. The nature of classical potential is examined for the model under consideration. It has also been found that the massive strings dominate in the early universe and finally disappear from the universe. This is in agreement with current astronomical observations. The physical and dynamical properties of the model are also discussed.
