Comments on the scalar-tensor representation of nonlocally corrected gravity

N.A. Koshelev1

Abstract

The scalar-tensor representation of some simple nonlocally modified Einstein models is considered. Some special solutions of the vacuum background equations were obtained that indicate nonequivalence of the models under consideration in the scalar-tensor description and in the initial one.
