FRW Holographic Dark Energy Cosmological Model in Brans-Dicke Theory of Gravitation

V. U. M. Rao, M. Vijaya Santhi, N. Sandhya Rani


In this paper, we have investigated five dimensional FRW metric with holographic dark energy in the frame work of Brans and Dicke scalar–tensor theory of gravitation. To obtain a determinate solution of the field equations we have used a particular relation between scalar field φ and the scale factor a(t) of the universe. Also, some important properties of the model including look-back time, distance modulus and luminosity distance versus red shift with their significances are discussed.
