Singularity-free RW viscous fluid cosmological models in presence of massive scalar fields

  • A. R. Roy
  • P. K. Maiti


Singularity-free Robertson-Walker cosmological models (RWCM) are developed by considering the cosmic matter as composed of an interacting viscous fluid (with zero bulk viscosity) and a massive scalar (meson) field. Solutions are obtained for two different cases, viz., when the Hubble's parameterH is epoch independent and whenH is epoch dependent. A solution corresponding to RWCM with only the massive scalar field as the matter content is also presented. The essential physical behaviour of the models developed are discussed in detail.
