  • Horaţiu NăstaseEmail author
Part of the Fundamental Theories of Physics book series (FTPH, volume 197)


In this chapter, we re-derive, and extend, the analysis of the previous chapter within general relativity. We will re-derive the Friedmann equation from the relativistic treatment, of the FLRW metric, and then describe the various types of matter in detail, and the corresponding evolution of the Universe.
