Closure in anisotropic cosmological models

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

5 Scopus citations


The closure result of Friedmann cosmology is briefly reviewed. A new closure result is presented for nonrotating, dust filled, but otherwise anisotropic, inhomogeneous cosmological models. The isotropy assumptions are replaced by much milder physical assumptions while the crucial Friedmann condition, 8πκp-3h2>0, is replaced by the only slightly stronger 4πκp - 3h2>0.
