Multiple observations of distant type Ia supernovae show the deceleration parameter of the universe is negative. The standard cosmological model states expansion should be slowing down. A new theory is presented which explains cosmic acceleration only through the action of well-supported phenomena in the context of Einstein's general theory of relativity through the use of the Bianchi type IX homogeneous,closed cosmology. The evidence for acceleration is assessed and previously… Expand

Propagation of gravitational waves in a universe with slowly-changing equation of state
An exact solution for the expansion of a flat universe with dark energy evolving according to a simple model is explored. The equation for weak primordial gravitational waves propagating in thisExpand

Observational evidence, which is necessarily confined to a region of the universe limited in space (within the observer's horizon), implies a high degree of homogeneity and isotropy for theExpand
Observational Evidence from Supernovae for an Accelerating Universe and a Cosmological Constant

Anisotropic dark energy: dynamics of the background and perturbations
We investigate cosmologies where the accelerated expansion of the universe is driven by a field with an anisotropic equation of state. We model such scenarios within the Bianchi I framework,Expand

Model independent constraints on the cosmological expansion rate
We investigate what current cosmological data tells us about the cosmological expansion rate in a model independent way. Specifically, we study if the expansion was decelerating at high redshifts andExpand

Abstract A modification to the Friedmann–Robertson–Walker equation is proposed in which the universe is flat, matter dominated, and accelerating. An additional term, which contains only matter orExpand

Astronomical observations suggest that today’s Universe is dominated by a dark energy of unknown physical origin. One of the most notable results obtained from many models is that dark energy shouldExpand

Do we really see a cosmological constant in the supernovae data
The magnitude-redshift relation is one of the tools for a direct observational approach to cosmology. The discovery of high redshift Type Ia supernovae (SNIa) and their use as “standard candles” hasExpand
