A simple model of the hierarchical formation of galaxies
In the form of a symbolic equality, Cosmology = Cosmological model(s) + Observations We shall denote a given family of cosmological models (or a cosmology) with a triplet {·/ · /·} of the sort {Spacetime/Gravity theory/Matter field}.
Is Nature Generic?
The simplest and best studied (relativistic) cosmology of physical interest is the {FRW/General Relativity/Fluid} Cosmology.
Is Nature Generic?
This actually is the cosmology discussed in many textbooks on the sub ject under the heading ‘Relativistic Cosmology’.
Is Nature Generic?
For example, suppose that an FRW/GR/fluid cosmology is valid after the Planck time onwards and that a Bianchi/Mtheory/vacuum cosmology holds well before that time.
Is Nature Generic?
If one could show how the global attractors of different cosmologies are related, one would have a precise way of deciding which cosmology to pick for specific eras in the cosmic history.
Is Nature Generic?
The notion of a cosmological attractor introduced earlier will also play a special role here as dissipative cosmologies are generally expected to have the so-called strange attractors, but their existence may not be easy to unravel except in the case of highly symmetric cosmologies.
Is Nature Generic?
An emerging method in recent years to decide whether a given cosmology is integrable, without actually solving the associated differential equations to construct cosmological solutions of physical interest, is based on an intriquing idea of two great mathematicians of the past, S.
Is Nature Generic?
Here again we see the need for the full exploitation of the cosmological attractors in an effort to understand the precise relations between different cosmologies.
Is Nature Generic?
Study each one of these problems in the framework of every possible cosmology with an effort to decide among the different possibilities for a realistic cosmology.
Is Nature Generic?
The Friedmann equation is thus non standard as is the normalization condition 2 Ωk + (cid:18)qΩrc + qΩrc + ΩM (cid:19)2 The outcome of equation (4) is that the early cosmology is standard matter-dominated, whereas the late time cosmology exhibits acceleration when the matter density becomes small enough.
Comments on "A Supernova Brane Scan"
It may be noted here that the cosmological evolution in cluster gas properties is poorly understood and predictions of the Cl spectra expected from cosmological clusters may have large uncertainties.
Observing the CMB with the AMiBA
This strengthens the conclusions of previous work in which the spectrum of cosmological perturbations in expanding inflationary cosmologies was studied, and it was found that, for dispersion relations for which the evolution is not adiabatic, the spectrum changes from the standard prediction of scale-invariance.
Trans-Planckian Physics and the Spectrum of Fluctuations in a Bouncing Universe
This result supports our earlier work which shows that the spectrum of cosmological fluctuations in inflationary cosmology can depend sensitively on trans-Planckian physics [1, 2].
Trans-Planckian Physics and the Spectrum of Fluctuations in a Bouncing Universe
The number density is the number counts divided by the cosmological volume element, so it necessarily depends on the assumed cosmological parameters.
