Abstract

In this paper, we have studied exact solutions of Brans-Dicke (BD) theory for higher dimensional generalized Friedmann-Robertson-Walker (FRW) universe in the presence of strange quark matter (SQM) attached to the string cloud and domain walls. We have obtained that string tension density does not survive in this model. This result agrees with Kiran and Reddy, Krori et al., Sahoo and Mishra and Reddy. Also we have obtained constant scalar field in the presence of string cloud and domain walls. Then BD theory does not observe for higher dimensional FRW universe with SQM attached to the string cloud and domain walls. Our BD solutions turn into general relativity (GR). Finally, some physical properties are discussed.
