Classic research papers in relativistic cosmology
Online list of classic research papers in relativistic cosmology and general relativity, with links to arXiv.org when available.
Cosmic Topology
General relativity does not allow one to specify the topology of space, leaving the possibility that space is multi- rather than simply- connected. This paper reviews the mathematical properties of multi-connected spaces, and the different tools to classify them and to analyse their properties.
Cosmological Constant
Recently two different groups have measured the apparent brightness of supernovae with redshifts near z = 1. Based on this data the old idea of a cosmological constant is making a comeback.
The Cosmological Constant
The following pages present a discussion of the role the cosmological constant plays in modern cosmology. They are designed to offer an overview of how the cosmological constant alters standard cosmology, and to discuss whether a non-zero cosmological constant exists today.
Cosmological Models
The aim of this set of lectures is a systematic presentation of a 1+3 covariant approach to studying the geometry, dynamics, and observational properties of relativistic cosmological models.
