Cosmic acceleration in Brans–Dicke cosmology

  • Yousef Bisabr
Research Article

Abstract

We consider Brans–Dicke theory with a self-interacting potential in Einstein conformal frame. We show that an accelerating expansion is possible in a spatially flat universe for large values of the Brans–Dicke parameter consistent with local gravity experiments.
