The isotropization of the vacuum Bianchi type — V solution

(Letter to the Editor)


In a recent paper, the general vacuum Bianchi type-V solution in Brans-Dicke theory was presented and the isotropization of the model was discussed. It is pointed out that this solution was derived previously. Some remarks are made about the isotropization of the model.
