The Aporias of Cosmology and the Attempts at Overcoming Them by Nonstandard Models

  • H. Hönl
  • H. Dehnen


Of the scientists of modern times Isaac Newton was the first who recognized clearly the cosmological problem and tried to solve it with the help of the general principles of mechanics and of the gravitational law developed by himself. The validity of Euclidean geometry, which includes automatically the spacelike infinity of the Universe, was evident for him as for his forerunners. Herewith, the ground elements of physics and geometry are given, which has been the basis of physics and astronomy up to the beginning of our century.
