    Abstract

    We prove a cosmic no-hair theorem for Bianchi models in power-law inflation. Provided that the potential of an inflaton is exp(-) with 0<23, we find that the isotropic power-law solution is the unique attractor for any initially expanding Bianchi-type models except type IX. For Bianchi type IX, this conclusion is also true if the initial ratio of the vacuum energy to the maximum three-curvature is larger than one half.
