Anisotropic model of a dark energy dominated universe with hybrid expansion law

Suresh Kumar1


The dynamics of the Universe is studied in the framework of a spatially homogeneous Bianchi-V space-time filled with a perfect fluid composed of non-interacting matter and dynamical dark energy components. We determine the Bianchi-V space-time by considering a hybrid expansion law (HEL) for the average scale factor that yields power-law and exponential-law cosmologies in its special cases. In the HEL cosmology, the Universe exhibits a transition from deceleration to acceleration. We find that the HEL Universe in the framework of Bianchi-V space-time is anisotropic at early stages of evolution and becomes isotropic at late times. The dynamic dark energy in this Universe does not show a departure from the usual cosmological constant at later times.
