The expanding universe: an introduction

Preprint English OPEN
Pössel, Markus (2017)
  • Subject: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology
    arxiv: Astrophysics::Cosmology and Extragalactic Astrophysics | Physics::Physics Education

An introduction to the physics and mathematics of the expanding universe, using no more than high-school level / undergraduate mathematics. Covered are the basics of scale factor expansion, the dynamics of the expanding universe, various distance concepts and the generalized redshift-luminosity relation, among other topics.
