On stability of cosmological solutions to Einstein's equations coupled to a non-linear scalar field

19th October 2006

Author: Ringstroem, H (KTH)

Abstract

I'm going to discuss Einstein's equations coupled to a non-linear scalar field, the potential of which has a positive non-degenerate minimum, in the cosmological context. The question I will address is that of stability in the expanding direction.
