We consider the Einstein field equations with perfect fluid source and variable Λ andG for the Robertson-Walker metric. When conservation of energy momentum is postulated and the deceleration parameter is assumed constant, we find perfect gas equation of state models in the Euclidean and non-Euclidean cases. The resulting models offer an alternative to the inflationary scenario; they also explain the huge value of the cosmological term in the early universe.
