# Asymptotic isotropization in inhomogeneous cosmology

@article{Lim2004AsymptoticII, title={Asymptotic isotropization in inhomogeneous cosmology}, author={Woei Chet Lim and Henk van Elst and Claes Uggla and John Wainwright}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2004}, volume={69} }

In this paper we investigate asymptotic isotropization. We derive the asymptotic dynamics of spatially inhomogeneous cosmological models with a perfect fluid matter source and a positive cosmological constant near the de Sitter equilibrium state at late times, and near the flat FL equilibrium state at early times. Our results show that there exists an open set of solutions approaching the de Sitter state at late times, consistent with the cosmic no-hair conjecture. On the other hand, solutions…
