Research over the past three decades has revolutionized the field of cosmology while supporting the standard cosmological model. However, the cosmological principle of Universal homogeneity and isotropy has always been in question, since structures as large as the survey size have always been found as the survey size has increased. Until now, the largest known structure in our Universe is the Sloan Great Wall (SGW), which is more than 400 Mpc long and located approximately one billion light…

HECTOMAP AND HORIZON RUN 4: DENSE STRUCTURES AND VOIDS IN THE REAL AND SIMULATED UNIVERSE
HectoMAP is a dense redshift survey of red galaxies covering a 53 deg2 strip of the northern sky. HectoMAP is 97% complete for galaxies with r < 20.5, (g− r) > 1.0, and (r − i) > 0.5. The survey
Cosmic time: From the big bang to the eternal future
Cosmology presents intriguing issues for the understanding and tracking of time. The big bang theory says that the universe began 13.8 billion years ago, in a situation of almost unimaginable
Are stellar-mass binary black hole mergers isotropically distributed?
The Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo gravitational wave detectors have detected a population of binary black hole mergers in their first two observing runs. For each of these events, we have been
Anomalies in the GRB spatial distribution
Swift's remarkable ability to quickly localize gamma-ray bursts has led to the accumulation of a sizable burst sample for which both angular locations and redshifts are measured. This sample has
Does the GRB Duration Depend on Redshift?
Several hundred gamma-ray burst (GRB) redshifts have been determined to date. One of the other important properties—besides the distance—of the GRBs is the duration of the burst. In this paper, we
Foreground of Gamma-Ray Bursts (grbs) from Akari Fis Data
A significant number of the parameters of a gamma-ray burst (GRB) and its host galaxy are calculated from the afterglow. There are various methods obtaining extinction values for the necessary
LARGE SDSS QUASAR GROUPS AND THEIR STATISTICAL SIGNIFICANCE
We use a volume-limited sample of quasars in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) DR7 quasar catalog to identify quasar groups and address their statistical significance. This quasar sample has a
Scalar fields: fluctuating and dissipating in the early Universe
It is likely that the early Universe was pervaded by a whole host of scalar fields which are ubiquitous in particle physics models and are employed everywhere from driving periods of accelerated
Foreground of GRBs from AKARI FIS data

Contracting universe and the cosmological redshift
It is shown that static time-time component in RW metric can be justi ed only if we assume that an expanding or contracting universe does not impact the physics at the smallest scales, and size of
