In theoretical physics, a scalar–tensor theory is a field theory that includes both a scalar field and a tensor field to represent a certain interaction. For example, the Brans–Dicke theory of gravitation uses both a scalar field and a tensor field to mediate the gravitational interaction. Classical and Quantum Gravity 'I found the book to be a clearly written exposition of scalar-tensor theory, which extends to include many current issues in the field and some important ramifications of string theory cosmology I would certainly recommend this book to anyone wishing to acquire a solid introductory grounding in the area.'.
