In Chapter 27, we focus on the case that the scalar field converges to a positive non-degenerate minimum of the potential. In the spatially homogeneous setting, it is then possible to derive detailed asymptotics. We first discuss the behaviour of the scalar field and the metric. We then turn to the asymptotics for the distribution function.

Keywords:   spatial homogeneity, asymptotics, scalar field, potential
