Cocke, W.J., and J.M. Cohen, 1968: Cauchy problem in the scalar-tensor gravitational theory. J. Math. Phys., 9, 971-973, doi:10.1063/1.1664688.

We show that the scalar-tensor gravitational field equations can be split up into a set of initial-value equations and a set of time-evolution equations and that the initial-value equations preserve their form as they propagate forward in time. The proper amount of freedom for the stress-energy tensor is maintained, and the Cauchy problem is thus posed reasonably well.
