Context. The emergence of several unexpected large-scale features i n the cosmic microwave background (CMB) has pointed to possible new physics driving the origin of density fluctuati ons in the early Universe and their evolution into the largescale structure we see today. Aims. In this paper, we focus our attention on the possible absence of angular correlation in the CMB anisotropies at angles lar ger than∼ 60◦, and consider whether this feature may be the signature of flu ctuations expected… Expand

Constancy of the cluster gas mass fraction in the Rh=ct Universe

  • Proceedings of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences
  • 2016
The ratio of baryonic to dark matter densities is assumed to have remained constant throughout the formation of structure. With this, simulations show that the fraction fgas(z) of baryonic mass toExpand
The Optical Path of Ancient Photons and the Supernova Project
Here we present evidence that the analysis of the Supernova Project failed to consider the simplest model which is capable of predicting all type 1a Supernovae (SN1a) distances from their redshiftsExpand
The maximum angular-diameter distance in cosmology
Unlike other observational signatures in cosmology, the angular-diameter distance d_A(z) uniquely reaches a maximum (at z_max) and then shrinks to zero towards the big bang. The location of thisExpand
Rh =ctand the eternal coasting cosmological model

  • 2019
We point out that the nonempty $R_h=ct$ cosmological model has some known antecedents in the literature. Some of those eternal coasting models are published even before the discovery of theExpand
Tantalizing new physics from the cosmic purview

  • Modern Physics Letters A
  • 2019
The emergence of a highly improbable coincidence in cosmological observations speaks of a remarkably simple cosmic expansion. Compelling evidence now suggests that the Universe’s gravitationalExpand
Assessing cosmic acceleration with the Alcock–Paczyński effect in the SDSS-IV quasar catalogue
The geometry of the Universe may be probed using the Alcock-Paczynski (AP) effect, in which the observed redshift size of a spherical distribution of sources relative to its angular size variesExpand
Cosmological analogies in the search for new physics in high-energy collisions
In this paper, analogies between multiparticle production in high-energy hadronic collisions and the time evolution of the early universe are discussed. In particular, long-range angular correlationsExpand
Reference Level of the Vacuum Energy Density of the Universe and Astrophysical Data
An extended framework of gravity, in which the first Friedmann equation is satisfied up to some constant due to violation of gauge invariance, is tested against astrophysical data: SupernovaeExpand
