We completely classify FLRW solutions with spatial curvature $K=0,\pm 1$ and equation of state $p=w\rho$, according to their conformal structure, singularities and trapping horizons. We do not assume any energy conditions and allow $\rho -1/3$ and $\rho>0$, while no big-bang singularity for $w 0$. For $K=0$ or $-1$, $-1 0$, there is an initial null big-bang singularity. For each spatial curvature, there is a final spacelike future big-rip singularity for $w 0$, with null geodesics being future… 
Past extendibility and initial singularity in Friedmann-Lemaître-Robertson-Walker and Bianchi I spacetimes
We study past-directed extendibility of Friedmann-Lemaître-Robertson-Walker (FLRW) and Bianchi type I spacetimes with a scale factor vanishing in the past. We give criteria for determining whether a
Cosmological aspects of the Eisenhart–Duval lift
A cosmological extension of the Eisenhart–Duval metric is constructed by incorporating a cosmic scale factor and the energy-momentum tensor into the scheme. The dynamics of the spacetime is governed
Non-exotic conformal structure of weak exotic singularities
We study the conformal structure of exotic (non-big-bang) singularity universes using the hybrid big-bang/exotic singularity/big-bang and big-rip/exotic singularity/big-rip models by investigating
Phantom singularities and their quantum fate: general relativity and beyond—a CANTATA COST action topic
Cosmological observations allow the possibility that dark energy is caused by phantom fields. These fields typically lead to the occurrence of singularities in the late Universe. We review here the
BMS-like symmetries in cosmology
Null infinity in asymptotically flat spacetimes posses a rich mathematical structure; including the BMS group and the Bondi news tensor that allow one to study gravitational radiation rigorously.
Asymptotic dynamics and charges for FLRW spacetimes
We investigate the asymptotia of decelerating and spatially flat FLRW spacetimes at future null infinity. We find that the asymptotic algebra of diffeomorphisms can be enlarged to a one-parameter
Static spacetimes haunted by a phantom scalar field. I. Classification and global structure in the massless case
We discuss various novel features of $n(\ge 4)$-dimensional spacetimes sourced by a massless (non-)phantom scalar field in general relativity. Assuming that the metric is a warped product of static
The singularity in mimetic Kantowski-Sachs cosmology
The dynamics of the vacuum Kantowski-Sachs space-time are studied in the so-called limiting curvature mimetic gravity theory. It is shown that in this theory the vacuum Kantowski-Sachs space-time is


Threshold of primordial black hole formation
Based on a physical argument, we derive a new analytic formula for the amplitude of density perturbation at the threshold of primordial black hole formation in the universe dominated by a perfect
Separate universe problem: 40 years on
The claim that an overdense (positive curvature) region in the early universe cannot extend beyond some maximum scale and remain part of our universe, first made 40 years ago, has recently been
Phantom Friedmann cosmologies and higher-order characteristics of expansion
Abstract We discuss a more general class of phantom (p   −1) matter. We show that many types of evolution which include both Big-Bang and Big-Rip singularities are admitted and give explicit

All these inequalities extend to the asymptotic energies, recovering the Bondi-Sachs energy loss and the positivity of theAsymptosis energies, as well as proving the conjectured Penrose inequality for black or white holes.
Upper limits on the size of a primordial black hole
We provide precise constraints on the size of any black holes forming in the early Universe for a variety of formation scenarios. In particular, we prove that the size of the apparent horizon of a
Possibility of deconfined criticality in SU(N) Heisenberg models at small N
To examine the validity of the scenario of the deconfined critical phenomena, we carry out a quantum Monte Carlo simulation for the SU($N$) generalization of the Heisenberg model with four-body and
An exposition on Friedmann cosmology with negative energy densities
How would negative energy density affect a classic Friedmann cosmology? Although never measured and possibly unphysical, certain realizations of quantum field theories leaves the door open for such a
Super-horizon primordial black holes
We discuss a new class of solutions to the Einstein equations which describe a primordial black hole (PBH) in a flat Friedmann background. Such solutions arise if a Schwarzschild black hole is
Classification of cosmological milestones
In this paper causal geodesic completeness of Friedmann-Lemaitre-Robertson-Walker (FLRW) cosmological models is analyzed in terms of generalized power expansions of the scale factor in coordinate
Galilean Genesis: An Alternative to inflation
We propose a novel cosmological scenario, in which standard inflation is replaced by an expanding phase with a drastic violation of the Null Energy Condition (NEC): >> H2. The model is based on the
