Milne's model Universe

For a very good introduction read this: Introducing the Dirac-Milne universe by AurÚlien Benoit-LÚvy, Gabriel Chardin Februari 2012

The purpose of this document is to demonstrate the evolution of the universe when space expansion is linear. This is called: Milne's model.
The differential equation for this type of universe is: dR/dt = c

The solution is R = c*t
In order to demonstrate also an EXCEL program is available. In order to download this program select: linear

For a general introduction about World Models read this: 3 World models
For further reading read this: Misconceptions about the Big Bang

Program Operation

The Excel program "linear expansion.xls" contains of one "page". This page contains two parameters c and type and one command: Calculate

Simulation Results


Picture 5
C = 3 Type = 2
Picture 5 shows the evalution of three light signals when the expansion speed = c = 3.
The target times are 5, 10 and 15 billion years. Picture 5 only shows the lightcurve for the first billion years.
What is important in none of these three cases you will be able to observe the Big Bang.
In the case of the blue line (Target time is 5 billion years) the earliest events that can be observed happend roughly 250000 years after the Big Bang.
To observe the Big Bang (galaxies very close to the Big Bang) the expansion speed should be much higher. To introduce a period of inflation helps.
