Cosmology in Scalar-Tensor Gravity covers all aspects of cosmology in scalar-tensor theories of gravity. Considerable progress has been made in this exciting area of physics and this book is the first to provide a critical overview of the research. Among the topics treated are:
-Scalar-tensor gravity and its limit to general relativity,
-Effective energy-momentum tensors and conformal frames,
-Gravitational waves in scalar-tensor cosmology,
-Specific scalar-tensor theories,
-Exact cosmological solutions and cosmological perturbations,
-Scalar-tensor scenarios of the early universe and inflation,
-Scalar-tensor models of quintessence in the present universe and their far-reaching consequences for the ultimate fate of the cosmos.

Review:

From the reviews:

"The book is devoted to some class of gravitational theories which are alternatives to Einstein’s general relativity. ... The book is fairly complete on its themes. The list of references has 925 entries; many citations are of the years 2000-2003. The book is both, a useful survey and a contribution to current discussions." (Rainer Schimming, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1057 (8), 2005)

"The main topic of this book is to give an overview about such generalized scalar-tensor theories which represent gravitation ... . The list of 925 references presents a well-balanced source for research in this field. ... Finally, let me say, that the present book ... is recommended to research libraries ... ." (Hans Jürgen Schmidt, General Relativity and Gravitation, Vol. 37 (8), 2005)
