# Cosmological models: Cargese lectures 1998

@inproceedings{Ellis1998CosmologicalMC, title={Cosmological models: Cargese lectures 1998}, author={George F R Ellis and Henk van Elst}, year={1998} }

The aim of this set of lectures is a systematic presentation of a 1 + 3 covariant approach to studying the geometry, dynamics, and observational properties of relativistic cosmological models. In giving (i) the basic 1 + 3 covariant relations for a cosmological uid, the present lectures cover some of the same ground as a previous set of Carg ese lectures [7], but they then go on to give (ii) the full set of corresponding tetrad equations, (iii) a classication of cosmological models with exact…
