COSMOLOGY

International Meeting of Fundamental Physics

(“Winter” meeting)

Santiago de Compostela, 2007

Eduard Massó

UAB/IFAE

The standard cosmological model

The observed universe

Inflation. Neutrinos in cosmology

Emphasis on “Particles”

Co-moving co-ordinates

On top: peculiar (real) velocities

Cosmological principle

Universe homogenous & isotropic

on large scales

Hubble parameter

(today)

Hubble’s discovery

Hubble’s law:

+

CP

Robertson-Walker metric

(homogeneity & isotropy)

Parameters:

Content

(matter+radiation)

Content too

(cosm. const.)

Parameters

are related

by eqs.

Spatial geometry

Equation of state

Assume i - dominance and

RD universe

MD universe.

CCD universe

Co-moving distance to source:

Where:

Can neglect

Distance-redshift relation is function of

look-back time

lifetime

Flat univ.

Our univ.

(Age crisis: Open universe gave too low lifetime)

1st order

It is the physical distance photons can travel until a time t

Defines causal distance at a given time t
