Bianchi type-I universe in the presence of zero-mass scalar fields

  • D. R. K. Reddy

An exact Bianchi type-I cosmological model in the presence of zero-mass scalar fields is obtained when the source of the gravitational field is a perfect fluid with pressure equal to energy density. Some properties of the model are discussed.
