Exact-Brans-Dicke-Friedmann-Robertson-Walker-Bianchi-Kantowski-Sachs vacuum solutions

  • D. Lorenz-Petzold


Using a new method of reduction of the Brans-Dicke vacuum field equations we derive exact vacuum solutions for the class of spatially homogeneous space-times in a unified manner. Exact solutions are given for the isotropic Friedmann-Robertson-Walker models as well as for the anisotropic Bianchi types I-IX and for the related Kantowski-Sachs model.
