In science:

A set of reals A is called κ-universally Baire if for any compact Hausdorf space X and for any continuous function f : X → R, f −1 [A] has the Baire property. A set of reals is universally Baire if it is κ-universally Baire for all κ.
Descriptive inner model theory
Let Cκ be the set of A ⊆ R such that A is κ-universally Baire set such that for some κuniversally Baire set B , A is Suslin, co-Suslin in L(B , R), L(B , R) (cid:15) AD+ and every Suslin, co-Suslin set of L(B , R) is κ-universally Baire.
Descriptive inner model theory
Therefore, the universe starts from a “big bang.” Later, the universe can either be an expanding and contracting closed universe, in some cases collapsing at the end, or an open universe.
Target Space Duality in String Theory
We can consider a “generic” supergravity model described by the MSSM matter content, gauge coupling unification at ∼ 1016 GeV, a universal gaugino mass (m1/2 ), a universal scalar mass (m0 ), a universal scalar coupling (A), and at low energies tan β .
A survey of phenomenological constraints on supergravity models
In the SSM the Universe had no beginning and so it is infinitely old, the density of the Universe remains constant, the matter and space are being continuously created, and the Universe is not evolving.
FACTS AND IDEAS IN MODERN COSMOLOGY
The two general classes of non-universality are gaugino mass non-universality and scalar mass non-universality.
A Simplified Summary of Supersymmetry
In the standard GUT-baryogenesis the magnitude of baryon asymmetry β is constant over all the universe so lB is either infinitely large (in an open universe) or is equal to the universe size (in a closed universe).
Baryogenesis, 30 Years after
R is the curvature of the Universe (it is infinite if the Universe is flat, imaginary if the Universe is open), and the dot denotes the time derivative.
The Cosmological Mass Function
Now we are ready to state the universality principle for anomalies: local anomalies are n–forms (modulo exact universal n–forms) characterized by (obtained from) universal n + 1–forms T Pk (Au ).
Anomalies and Locality in Field Theories and M theory
Einstein-de Sitter Ω0 universe from any low mass density universe but they are almost insensitive to discriminate a flat universe with a cosmological constant ΩΛ < 0.7 from the corresponding ΩΛ = 0 universe.
Gravitational Lensing and Tests of the Cosmological Constant
This is somewhat puzzling if one believes in a flat (k = 0) universe, since in this case the typical image separation is expected to be independent of the source redshift, while one expects a negative correlation in a k = −1 universe and a positive one in a k = +1 universe.
The image separation-source redshift relation for gravitational lenses as a cosmological test
They showed that these independent methods all indicate that the mass density of the universe is sub-critical, insufficient to halt the universal expansion, and reveal a consistent picture of a lightweight universe with only ∼20–30% of the critical density.
