A study on Bianchi-IX cosmological model

  • 105 Accesses

  • 28 Citations


In this paper the inflationary solutions are studied for the Bianchi-IX space-time in presence of a massless scalar field with a flat potential. Also a class of cosmological solutions of massive strings are obtained following the techniques used by Letelier and Stachel. Some solutions are calculated for pure massive strings following the Takabayashi equation of state ρ=(1+w)λ.
