Statefinder diagnosis of nearly flat and thawing non-minimal quintessence

Non-minimally coupled scalar field models of dark energy are equivalent to an interacting quintessence in Einstein's frame. Considering two special important choices of the potential of the scalar field, i.e. nearly flat and thawing potential, one has an analytical expression for the equation-of-state parameter as a function of the density parameter of the scalar field for any choice. Here we investigate the non-minimal quintessence model by applying the method of statefinder diagnosis to it and plotting the evolutionary trajectories of the statefinder parameters.
