Vinutha Tummala, V. U. M. Rao, M. V. Santhi, Y. Aditya, Molla M. Nigus


This paper deals with a spatially homogeneous and anisotropic Bianchi-V universe filled with barotropic fluid and dark energy in the frame work of scalar tensor theory of gravitation proposed by Saez and Ballester (1986). We consider both the cases when the dark energy is minimally coupled to barotropic fluid as well as direct interaction with it. The exact solutions of the corresponding field equations are obtained and also some important features of the models, thus obtained, have been discussed in detail.
