Cosmological studies in Bianchi II, VIII space-time

  • Subenoy Chakraborty
  • Gopal Chandra Nandy


The paper is divided into two parts. In the first part, we have studied inflationary solution for Bianchi II, VIII cosmological models when a massless scalar field with flat potential is considered. Some cosmological solutions of massive strings are obtained in the second part. Also some solutions are calculated for pure massive strings following the Takabayashi equation of state.
