When the inversion symmetry is broken, the spin-orbit coupling reduces the transition temperature of some types of spin triplet superconductivity, which is similar to the case that magnetic field reduces the spin singlet superconductivity due to Zeeman splitting. It is well known that Fulde-Ferrel-Larkin-Ovchinnikov (FFLO) state of spin singlet superconductivity is realized near the Pauli limit (or Chandrasekhar-Clogston limit) of external magnetic field. In FFLO state the amplitude of the order parameter is not uniform in space. In this paper we study the FFLO state in the spin triplet superconductivity in the absence of magnetic field due to the spin-orbit coupling. Although the FFLO state is not realized in the simple model with spherical Fermi surface, it will be stabilized if some condition is favorable for it. We discuss the possibility of FFLO state in CePt3Si in the absence of external magnetic field. Key words: CePt3Si, heavy fermion superconductivity, spin-orbit coupling, FFLO, spin triplet superconductivit
