Encoding cosmological futures with conformal structures

Scott, Susan M; Hoehn, Philipp

Description

Quiescent cosmology and the Weyl curvature hypothesis possess a mathematical framework, namely the definition of an isotropic singularity, but only for the initial state of the universe. A complementary framework is necessary to also encode appropriate cosmological futures. In order to devise a new framework we analyse the relation between regular conformal structures and (an)isotropy, the behaviour and role of a monotonic conformal factor which is a function of cosmic time, as well as four...[Show more]
