Spherically Symmetric Cosmologies with Tangential
As part of the Part III maths course, I wrote an essay on the evolution of
eccentricity in X-ray binaries, which is available as a word document - xrayecc.doc.
I would like to do some work on anisotropic cosmologies and in particular
fitting these models to current data. Recent work has indicated that even if the
Universe is very nearly FRW at the current epoch, it need not have been in the
past or indeed to the future. This calls into question the current models of the
early universe. In fact most cosmological data is analysed by assuming an FRW
geometry and then constraining other factors, such as the evolution of
sources, the dark energy etc. using these models. I would like to do some work
on understanding how non FRW models could fit the current data sets. The
ultimate aim would be to find ways to constrain the geometry as well as the
content of the universe with minimal assumptions.
