Abstract

The covariant gauge-invariant perturbation theory of scalar cosmological perturbations is developed for a general scalar-tensor Friedmann-Lemaitre- Robertson-Walker cosmology in a vacuum. The perturbation equations are then solved exactly in the long wavelength limit for a specific coupling, potential, and background. Differences with the minimally coupled case are briefly discussed. © 2006 The American Physical Society.
