# Hyperbolic space cosmologies

@article{Chen2003HyperbolicSC, title={Hyperbolic space cosmologies}, author={Chiang-Mei Chen and P. M. Ho and Ishwaree P. Neupane and Nobuyoshi Ohta and John E. Wang}, journal={Journal of High Energy Physics}, year={2003}, volume={2003}, pages={058-058} }

We present a systematic study of accelerating cosmologies obtained from M/string theory compactifications of hyperbolic spaces with time-varying volume. A set of vacuum solutions where the internal space is a product of hyperbolic manifolds is found to give qualitatively the same accelerating four-dimensional FLRW universe behavior as a single hyperbolic space. We also examine the possibility that our universe is a hyperbolic space and provide exact Milne type solutions, as well as intersecting…
