#### Jacobi stability analysis of scalar field models with minimal coupling to gravity in a cosmological background [CL]

http://arxiv.org/abs/1609.05636

We perform the study of the stability of the cosmological scalar field models, by using the Jacobi stability analysis, or the Kosambi-Cartan-Chern (KCC) theory. In the KCC approach we describe the time evolution of the scalar field cosmologies in geometric terms, by performing a “second geometrization”, by considering them as paths of a semispray. 211 more words
