A Cosmological Model with Negative Constant Deceleration Parameter in a General Scalar-Tensor Theory of Gravitation



Spatially homogeneous and anisotropic LRS Bianchi type-I metric is considered in the framework of Nordtvedt-Barker’s general scalar-tensor theory of gravitation when the source for the energy momentum tensor is a perfect fluid. With the help of a special law of variation for Hubble’s parameter proposed by Berman (Nuovo Cim. B. 74:182, 1983) a cosmological model with negative constant deceleration parameter is obtained. Some physical and kinematical properties of the model are also discussed.
