SCALAR FIELD AS DARK ENERGYQuintessence

for steep pot.

Predictive power of scalar fields

For a priori given cosmic history, it is always possible to construct a field potential

such that it gives rise to the desired result. Thus the scalar field models should be judged

by their generic features.

Trackers and non-trackers Tracker or Freezing Models

- Trackers (Freezing models): Potentials which mimic steep exponential
- at early epochs and become shallow at late times.

Thawing models:Most of the systems belong to this category
