2008 **Abstract:** Abstract. A cosmological model where a fermion field is non-minimally coupled with the gravitational field is studied. By applying Noether symmetry the possible functions for the potential density of the fermion field and for the coupling are determined. Cosmological solutions are found showing that the non-minimally coupled fermion field behaves as an inflaton describing an accelerated inflationary scenario, whereas the minimally coupled fermion field describes a decelerated period, behaving as a standard mat…

“…are among the most studied ones, though some other models of dark energy are also proposed. After some remarkable works by different authors [20][21][22][23][24][25][26][27][28][29][30][31][32][33][34], showing the important role of spinor field in the evolution of the Universe, it has been extensively used to model the dark energy. This success is directly related to its ability to answer some fundamental questions of modern cosmology: (i) Problem of initial singularity and its possible elimination [22][23][24][25][26][35][36][37][38]; (ii) problem of isotropization [24,25,27,36,39] and (iii) late time acceleration of the Universe [28-30, 32, 35-38, 40, 41].…”

“…There are two kinds of Noether symmetry approach for cosmological studies in the literature : The first one is the so-called Noether symmetry approach in which the Lie derivative of a given Lagrangian vanishes, (Capozziello and de Ritis 1993;de Ritis et al 1990;Demianski et al 1 Sanyal and Modak 2001;Camci and Kucukakca 2007;Souza and Kremer 2008) and the second one is the so-called Noether gauge symmetry (NGS) approach Hussain et al 2011 We note that the Noether symmetry approach without gauge term allows one to choose the potential dynamically in the scalar-tensor gravity theory (Sanyal et al 2003), and very recently, the explicit form of the function f (R) (Capozziello and de Felice 2008;Vakili 2008). For this form of f (R), cosmological solutions of FRW metric can describe the accelerated period of the universe.…”

“…This type of fermionic dark matter (but with additional interactions) is also studied in [35]. The standard matter behavior of Dirac fermion fields can be seen in other contexts [32,36,37].…”

“…One considers a spatially flat, homogeneous and isotropic Universe (in according to the observations) and a point-like Lagrangian is obtained from the action. The undefined potentials in the Lagrangian are selected from the existence condition for the Noether symmetry -interesting results using this approach can be found in the references [22,29,30,31,32,33,34]. The selected potentials indicate that the boson field can describe the dark energy and an additional matter field and the fermion field behaves as the standard matter.…”
