Accelerating cosmologies in Lovelock gravity with dilaton

Abstract

For the description of the Universe expansion, compatible with observational data, a model of modified gravity - Lovelock gravity with dilaton - is investigated. D-dimensional space with 3- and (D-4)-dimensional maximally symmetric subspaces is considered. Space without matter and space with perfect fluid are under test. In various forms of the theory under way (third order without dilaton and second order - Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet gravity - with dilaton and without it) stationary, power-law, exponential and exponent-of-exponent form cosmological solutions are obtained. Last two forms include solutions which are clear to describe accelerating expansion of 3-dimensional subspace. Also there is a set of solutions describing cosmological expansion which does not tend to isotropization in the presence of matter.Comment: 23 page
