Dark Matter & Energy - Part 2.3

Fate of the Universe

Part 2.3 – Determining Density (Omega Ω)

Introduction

In the last post we saw that the fate of universe, whether it will a ‘Big Crunch or a ‘Big Chill’ or a ‘Big Rip’ depends on the density of matter in the universe, represented by greek letter Omega Ω. 589 more words

Four-point CAT(0) condition

The definition of a metric space guarantees that if we pick three points from it, we can draw a triangle in the Euclidean plane, with vertices labeled so that the side lengths are equal to the corresponding distances in the metric space. 533 more words

Three hyperbolic metrics

Up to a constant factor, there is just one conformally invariant Riemannian metric on the disk . Indeed, on the tangent space at the metric must be a multiple of the Euclidean one, due to rotational invariance. 514 more words
