Abstract The Cardassian universe is a proposed modification to the Friedmann equation in which the universe is flat, matter dominated, and accelerating. In the ordinary Friedmann equation, the right hand side is a linear function of the energy density, H 2  ∼  ρ . Here, instead, the right hand side of the Friedmann equation is a different function of the energy density, H 2  ∼  g ( ρ ). This function returns to ordinary Friedmann at early times, but drives acceleration of the universe at the… Expand
Constraints of gravitational baryo/leptogenesis on Cardassian expansion
In this paper, proceeding from the relation between the Cardassian model and the accelerated expansion of the universe, adopting a parametric method which does not depend on a precise mechanism forExpand
Polytropic dark matter flows illuminate dark energy and accelerated expansion
Currently, a large amount of data implies that the matter constituents of the cosmological dark sector might be collisional. An attractive feature of such a possibility is that, it can reconcile darkExpand

On the cosmological models with matter creation
The matter creation model of Prigogine–Géhéniau–Gunzig–Nardone is revisited in terms of a redefined creation pressure which does not lead to irreversible adiabatic evolution at constant specificExpand
More on QCD ghost dark energy
The difference between the vacuum energy of quantum fields in Minkowski space and in a Friedmann-Robertson-Walker universe might be related to the observed dark energy. The vacuum energy of theExpand
ACCELERATING UNIVERSE WITH MODIFIED FRIEDMANN EQUATION
In this paper we propose a specific modification for Friedmann equation which leads during the matter-dominated era to a Cardassian type model, with the usual two undetermined parameters but with anExpand
FRW viscous modified cosmic Chaplygin gas cosmology in the presence of cosmological constant
In this paper, we study viscous Modified Cosmic Chaplygin Gas (MCCG) in the presence of cosmological constant in flat FRW universe. We assume that bulk viscosity [Formula: see text] and cosmologicalExpand
Exponential Cardassian universe
Abstract The expectation of explaining cosmological observations without requiring new energy sources is forsooth worthy of investigation. In this Letter, a new kind of Cardassian models, calledExpand
Cosmic acceleration from a single fluid description
We here propose a new class of barotropic factor for matter, motivated by properties of isotropic deformations of crystalline solids. Our approach is dubbed Anton-Schmidt's equation of state andExpand
Perturbations of Dark Matter Gravity
Until recently the study of the gravitational field of dark matter was primarily concerned with its local effects on the motion of stars in galaxies and galaxy clusters. On the other hand, the WMAPExpand

Future Type Ia Supernova Data as Tests of Dark Energy from Modified Friedmann Equations
In the Cardassian model, dark energy density arises from modifications to the Friedmann equation, which becomes H2 = g(ρM), where g(ρM) is a new function of the energy density. The universe is flat,Expand

We consider the cosmology that results if our observable universe is a 3-brane in a higher dimensional universe. In particular, we focus on the case where our 3-brane is located at the Z{sub 2}Expand
