Dynamical Systems in Cosmology

  title={Dynamical Systems in Cosmology},
  author={Alan A. Coley},
Dynamical systems theory is especially well-suited for determining the possible asymptotic states (at both early and late times) of cosmological models, particularly when the governing equations are a finite system of autonomous ordinary differential equations. We begin with a brief review of dynamical systems theory. We then discuss cosmological models as dynamical systems and point out the important role of self-similar models. We review the asymptotic properties of spatially homogeneous… CONTINUE READING
