Carmeli’s Accelerating Universe is Spatially Flat Without Dark Matter

  • John HartnettEmail author


Carmeli’s 5D brane cosmology has been applied to the expanding accelerating universe and it has been found that the distance redshift relation will fit the data of the high-z supernova teams without the need for dark matter. Also the vacuum energy contribution to gravity, ΩΛ indicates that the universe is asymptotically expanding towards a spatially flat state, where the total mass/energy density Ω+ΩΛ→1.
