Thermodynamically consistent entropic late-time cosmological acceleration

Entropic-force cosmology provides, in contrast with dark energy descriptions, a concrete physical understanding of the accelerated expansion of the universe. The acceleration appears to be a



Black Holes and Entropy

There are a number of similarities between black-hole physics and thermodynamics. Most striking is the similarity in the behaviors of black-hole area and of entropy: Both quantities tend to increase

Non-adiabatic-like accelerated expansion of the late universe in entropic cosmology

In `entropic cosmology', instead of a cosmological constant $\Lambda$, an extra driving term is added to the Friedmann equation and the acceleration equation, taking into account the entropy and the

Entropic cosmology for a generalized black-hole entropy

An entropic-force scenario, i.e., entropic cosmology, assumes that the horizon of the Universe has an entropy and a temperature. In the present paper, in order to examine entropic cosmology, we

Black hole thermodynamical entropy

As early as 1902, Gibbs pointed out that systems whose partition function diverges, e.g. gravitation, lie outside the validity of the Boltzmann–Gibbs (BG) theory. Consistently, since the pioneering

New Constraints on ΩM, ΩΛ, and w from an Independent Set of 11 High-Redshift Supernovae Observed with the Hubble Space Telescope

We report measurements of ΩM, ΩΛ, and w from 11 supernovae (SNe) at z = 0.36-0.86 with high-quality light curves measured using WFPC2 on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). This is an independent set

The Cosmological Constant Problem

Astronomical observations indicate that the cosmological constant is many orders of magnitude smaller than estimated in modern theories of elementary particles. After a brief review of the history of

Thermodynamics and cosmology

A new type of cosmological history which includes large-scale entropy production is proposed. These cosmologies are based on a reinterpretation of the matterenergy stress tensor in Einstein's
