Cosmological models with constant deceleration parameter

  • Marcelo Samuel Berman
  • Fernando de Mello Gomide
Research Articles


Berman presented elsewhere a law of variation for Hubble's parameter that yields constant deceleration parameter models of the universe. By analyzing Einstein, Pryce-Hoyle and Brans-Dicke cosmologies, we derive here the necessary relations in each model, considering a perfect fluid.
