Introduction IN a fascinating article which appeared in Nature of February 6, under the title “Stellar Evolution and the Expanding Universe, Mr. F. Hoyle has brought forward convincing arguments for the permanent creation of matter in space. Many physicists will find it difficult to accept this hypothesis. For if there is any law ‘which has withstood all changes and revelutions in physics, it is the law of conservation of energy, which according to Einstein's formula E = mc2 is equivalent to… Expand
On the diversity of stationary cosmologies in the first half of the twentieth century
Before the establishment of the hot Big Bang scenario as the modern paradigm of cosmology, it faced several early competitors : the so-called stationary cosmological models. There were truly pluralExpand

The Large Numbers Hypothesis in Cosmology
In 1937, P.A.M. Dirac suggested the idea that the dimensionless constants of physics must be in relation with the epoch (age of the universe expressed in atomic units). From this hypothesis, known asExpand
A New Self Creation Cosmology
AbstractA theory is described which produces continuous creation by adapting that of Brans-Dicke. The universe is seen to be created out of the zero point energy field by self-containedExpand
Models of the very early universe with multiple scalar fields
There is a reasonable amount of observational evidence that suggests space was expanding exponentially in the very early universe --- an expansion that has become known as inflation. The mechanism byExpand
Varying Constants of Nature: Fragments of a History
The concept of constants of nature originated in the late-nineteenth century and has since then increasingly occupied the minds of physicists. But are the constants truly constant? Inspired by PaulExpand
Primordial Fluctuations in String Cosmology
This thesis is dedicated to the study of inflationary scenarios based on string theory. Inflation is a brief period of accelerated expansion in the very early Universe which gives naturalExpand
Linear growth rate of structure in parametrized post-Friedmannian universes
A possible solution to the dark energy problem is that Einstein's theory of general relativity is modified. A suite of models have been proposed that, in general, are unable to predict the correctExpand
Hubble expansion and structure formation in the ``running FLRW model'' of the cosmic evolution
A new class of Friedmann-Lemaitre-Robertson-Walker (FLRW) cosmological models with time-evolving fundamental parameters should emerge naturally from a description of the expansion of the universeExpand
A generalization to the Rastall theory and cosmic eras
A generalized version for the Rastall theory is proposed showing the agreement with the cosmic accelerating expansion. In this regard, a coupling between geometry and the pressureless matter fieldsExpand
