On the Topology and Future Stability of the Universe

Hans Ringström

Oxford University Press

In 1998–1999, our perception of the universe underwent a dramatic change. The observations of supernovae of type Ia led to the conclusion that our universe is expanding at an accelerating rate. One suggested explanation for this is the presence of a positive cosmological constant. The chapter contains a description of the argument leading from the supernovae observations to the conclusion that the universe is expanding at an accelerated rate.

Keywords:   supernovae of type ia, cosmological constant, accelerated expansion, universe
