  • Abstract It is extraordinary that a number of observations indicate that we live in a spatially flat, low matter density Universe, which is currently undergoing a period of accelerating expansion. The effort to explain this current state has focused attention on cosmological models in which the dominant component of the cosmic energy density has negative pressure, with an equation of state w⩾−1. Remarking that most observations are consistent with models right up to the w=−1 or cosmological… CONTINUE READING
