Abstract
A generalized second law in string cosmology accounts for geometric and qua ntum entropy in addition to ordinary sources of entropy. The proposed gener alized second law forbids singular string cosmologies, under certain condit ions, and forces a graceful exit transition from dilaton-driven inflation b y bounding curvature and dilaton kinetic energy, (C) 2000 Published by Else vier Science B.V.
