Particle Horizons in Cosmology

The importance of investigating particle horizons in order to interpret a cosmological solution of Einstein’s field equations has been described. We have presented the formula and studied the

A class of homogeneous cosmological models III: Asymptotic behaviour

The behaviour near to and far from an initial singularity in a broad subclass of the models studied in previous papers [1–3] is examined. The influence of the matter on the evolution at these times

The Horizon Problem

The horizon problem is cited, which is the purpose of this paper to study and present the different solutions that are available in the literature and some models proposed as a solution to the horizon problem.

Through the looking glass: why the 'cosmic horizon' is not a horizon

The present standard model of cosmology, Λ cold dark matter (ΛCDM), contains some intriguing coincidences. Not only are the dominant contributions to the energy density approximately of the same

The cosmic horizon

The cosmological principle, promoting the view that the Universe is homogeneous and isotropic, is embodied within the mathematical structure of the Robertson‐Walker (RW) metric. The equations derived

Embedding Black Holes and Other Inhomogeneities in the Universe in Various Theories of Gravity: A Short Review

Classic black hole mechanics and thermodynamics are formulated for stationary black holes with event horizons. Alternative theories of gravity of interest for cosmology contain a built-in


We present here the transformations required to recast the Robertson–Walker metric and Friedmann–Robertson–Walker equations in terms of observer-dependent coordinates for several commonly assumed

Cosmological models in two spacetime dimensions

Various physical properties of cosmological models in 1+1 dimensions are investigated. The authors demonstrate how a hot big bang and a hot big crunch can arise in some models. In particular, they

Dark Energy and the Observable Universe

We consider ever-expanding big bang models with a cosmological constant, Λ, and investigate in detail the evolution of the observable part of the universe. We also discuss quintessence models from
