The 3-torus (T 3 ) Friedmann-Lemaˆ itre-Robertson-Walker (FLRW) model better fits the nearly zero large-scale two-point auto-correlation of the Wilkin son Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) cosmic microwave background (CMB) sky maps than the infinite flat model. The T 3 model's parameters, recently found using an optimal cross- correlation method on WMAP data, imply approximately equal-redshift topological len sing at redshifts z ∼ 6, the redshift range of the upcoming generation of new… Expand
A SEARCH FOR NONTOROIDAL TOPOLOGICAL LENSING IN THE SLOAN DIGITAL SKY SURVEY QUASAR CATALOG
Flat space models with multiply connected topology, which have compact dimensions, are tested against the distribution of high-redshift (z ≥ 4) quasars of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). WhenExpand
The Status of Cosmic Topology after Planck Data
In the last decade, the study of the overall shape of the universe, called Cosmic Topology, has become testable by astronomical observations, especially the data from the Cosmic Microwave BackgroundExpand
A search for cosmic topology in the final WMAP data
A search for matched circle pairs of similar temperature fluctuations in the final WMAP 9yr data is carried out. Such a signature is expected if the space of the Universe is multi-connected. WeExpand
A spatial-correlation analysis of the cubic 3-torus topology based on the Planck 2013 data
Spatial correlations of the cubic 3-torus topology are analysed using the Planck 2013 data. The spatial-correlation method for detecting multiply connected spaces is based on the fact that positionsExpand
Replacing dark energy by silent virialisation
Standard cosmological $N$-body simulations have background scale factor evolution that is decoupled from non-linear structure formation. Prior to gravitational collapse, kinematical backreactionExpand
Inhomogeneous cosmology : an answer to the Dark Matter and Dark Energy problems?
The standard model of cosmology describes the formation of large scale structures in the late Universe within a quasi–Newtonian theory. This model requires the presence of unknown compounds of theExpand
Observational Challenges for the Standard FLRW Model
We summarise some of the main observational challenges for the standard Friedmann-Lemaitre-Robertson-Walker cosmological model and describe how results recently presented in the parallel sessionExpand

Missing power vs low-ℓ alignments in the cosmic microwave background: No correlation in the standard cosmological model
On large angular scales (greater than about 60 degrees), the two-point angular correlation function of the temperature of the cosmic microwave background (CMB), as measured (outside of the plane ofExpand
No large-angle correlations on the non-Galactic microwave sky
We investigate the angular two-point correlation function of temperature in the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) maps. Updating and extending earlier results, we confirm firm the lack ofExpand
Selection constraints on high‐redshift quasar searches in the VISTA Kilo‐degree Infrared Galaxy survey
The European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA) is a 4-m class survey telescope for wide-field near-infrared imaging. VISTA is currently runningExpand
Constraints on the topology of the Universe derived from the 7-yr WMAP data
We impose constraints on the topology of the Universe determined from a search for matched circles in the temperature anisotropy patterns of the 7-yr Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) data.Expand
Finding new high-redshift quasars by asking the neighbours
Quasarswith a high redshift (z) are important to understand the evolution processes of galaxies in the early Universe. However, only a few of these distant objects are known to this date. The costsExpand
The shape of space after WMAP data
What is the shape of space is a long-standing question in cosmology. I review recent advances in cosmic topology since it has entered a new era of experimental tests. High redshift surveys ofExpand
Uncorrelated universe: Statistical anisotropy and the vanishing angular correlation function in WMAP years 1 3

Dodecahedral space topology as an explanation for weak wide-angle temperature correlations in the cosmic microwave background
TLDR
A simple geometrical model of a finite space—the Poincaré dodecahedral space—which accounts for WMAP's observations with no fine-tuning required is presented, and the model also predicts temperature correlations in matching circles on the sky. Expand
A (giant) void is not mandatory to explain away dark energy with a Lemaître-Tolman model
Context. Lemaitre-Tolman (L-T) toy models with a central observer have been used to study the effect of large scale inhomogeneities on the SN Ia dimming. Claims that a giant void is mandatory toExpand
