The volume is published in honour of Carl Brans on the occasion of his 80th birthday. Carl H. Brans, who also contributes personally, is a creative and independent researcher and one of the founders of the scalar-tensor theory, also known as Jordan-Brans-Dicke theory. In the present book, much space is devoted to scalar-tensor theories. We investigate, in the framework of a recently introduced new class of invariant geometrical scalar–tensor theory of gravity, the possibility that a viscous dark fluid can be described in a unified manner by a single scalar field. Thus we developed a model in which both the metric tensor and the scalar field have geometrical origin.

The study of general relativity at small scales has already produced important results (cf e.g. LNP Quantum Gravity and Quantum Cosmology) while its study at large scales is challenging because recent and upcoming observational results will provide important information on the validity of . Thus in the variable mass theory (VMT, see Table 1), a scalar-tensor theory devised to test the necessity for the strong equivalence principle, the expansion of the universe forces evolution of toward a particular value at which () diverges. Thus, late in the history of the universe (and today is late), localized gravitational systems are.

An investigation is made of the seismic response of the Earth to gravitational radiation of the scalar field emitted in accordance with the scalar- tensor theory of gravitation. Conditions are found under which this secondary radiation and the response to it are comparable with or exceed the corresponding values for the ordinary (primary. scalar-tensor formulation have been proposed in the contexts of dilatons in string theory and inﬂatons in cosmology. This paper presents a brief overview of this history. A recent, and much more thorough, study of the subject of scalar-tensor theories can be found in the book .

Topics covered include the cosmological constant problem, time variability of coupling. The latest released data from Planck in put up tighter constraints on inflationary parameters. In the present article, the in-built symmetry of the non-minimally coupled scalar-tensor theory of gravity is used to fix the coupling parameter, the functional Brans–Dicke parameter, and the potential of the theory.
