Testing the Copernican principle with future radio-astronomy observations

  title={Testing the Copernican principle with future radio-astronomy observations},
  author={Hertzog L. Bester and Julien Larena and Nigel T. Bishop},
  journal={arXiv: Cosmology and Nongalactic Astrophysics},
We use a direct observational approach to investigate the possibility of testing the Copernican principle with data from upcoming radio surveys. In particular we illustrate the importance of measuring derivatives transverse to the past light-cone when prior knowledge of the value of the cosmological constant is not available.

Fundamental physics with the Square Kilometre Array
Abstract The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) is a planned large radio interferometer designed to operate over a wide range of frequencies, and with an order of magnitude greater sensitivity and survey
Complementary consistency test of the Copernican principle via Noether's theorem and machine learning forecasts
The Copernican principle (CP), i.e. the assumption that we are not privileged observers of the universe, is a fundamental tenet of the standard cosmological model. A violation of this postulate


Gaussian Processes for Machine Learning
The treatment is comprehensive and self-contained, targeted at researchers and students in machine learning and applied statistics, and deals with the supervised learning problem for both regression and classification.
however (for it was the literal soul of the life of the Redeemer, John xv. io), is the peculiar token of fellowship with the Redeemer. That love to God (what is meant here is not God’s love to men)
