1 Early models of an expanding Universe Paramita Barai Astr 8900 : Astronomy Seminar 5th Nov, 2003

2 Contents Introduction Discuss papers : – 1922 : Friedmann – 1927 : Lemaître – 1932 : Einstein & De Sitter Present cosmological picture Some results – SN project, WMAP, SDSS

3 Cosmological foundations Cosmological principle – Universe is Homogeneous & Isotropic on large scales (> 100Mpc) Universe (space itself) expanding, dD/dt ~ D (Hubble Law) Universe expanded from a very dense, hot initial state (Big Bang) Expansion of universe – mass & energy content – explained by laws of GTR  Dynamics of universe Structure formation in small scales (< Mpc) by gravitational self organization WHAT IS THE GEOMETRY OF OUR UNIVERSE, & IT’S CONSEQUENCES ??

4 Cosmological parameters R – Scale factor of Universe Critical density,  C – density to make universe flat (it just stops expanding) Density parameter,  =  /  C H = Hubble constant = v / r  = Cosmological Constant (still speculative!!) – Dark Energy – Repulsive force, opposing gravity

5 Curvature of space Positive curvature – Closed – contract in future –  >  C –  > 1 Zero curvature – Flat – stop expansion in future & stationary –  =  C –  = 1 Negative curvature – Open – expand forever –  <  C –  < 1

6 Timeline 1905 – Einstein’s STR, 1915 – GTR 1917 – Einstein & De Sitter static cosmological models with  1922 – Friedmann – First non-static model – Universe contracts / expands (with  ) 1927 – Lemaître – expanding universe 1930 – Hubble: expanding universe, Einstein drops  (“biggest blunder”) 1932 – Einstein & de Sitter – Expanding universe of zero curvature

7 Timeline – cont’d… 1948 – Particle theory (QED) predicts non zero vacuum energy, but  QED =  other 1965 – CMBR Early 1980’s:  LUM <<  C  Open universe 1980’s – – Inflation theory  Flat universe (  TOT = 1) – Dark matter 1990’s -  LUM ~ ,  DARK ~ ,  REST = ? 1998 – Accelerating universe Present model – universe very near to flat (with matter and vacuum energy)

9 Two first models of universe: De Sitter Matter density = 0 Advantage : – Explains naturally observed radial receding velocities of extra galactic objects – From consequence of gravitational field Without assuming we are at special position Parameters – c = velocity of light –  = Cosmological constant –  = Density of universe

10 Einstein universe Non zero matter density Relation between density & radius of universe  masses much greater than known in universe at that time Can’t explain receding motion of galaxies Advantage – Explains existence of matter Parameters –  = Einstein constant = 1.87  (cgs)

11 Curvature of space Aleksandr Friedman Zeitschrift fur Physik 10, , 1922

12 Summary First non static model of universe Work immediately not noticed, but found important later … R independent of t : – Stationary worlds of Einstein & de Sitter R depends on time only : – Monotonically expanding world – Periodically oscillating world depending on  chosen

13 Goal of the paper Derive the worlds of Einstein & de Sitter from more general considerations

14 Assumptions of 1st class Same as Einstein & de Sitter 1. Gravitational potentials obey Einstein field equations with cosmological term 2. Matter is at relative rest

15 Assumptions of 2 nd class 1. Space curvature is constant wrt 3 space coordinates; but depends on time 2. Metric coefficients: g 14, g 24, g 34 = 0, suitable choice of time coordinate

16 Solutions: Einstein & de Sitter worlds as special cases Stationary world R(x 4 ) = 0 M = M 0 = constant – Cylindrical world – Einstein’s results M = (A 0 x 4 +B 0 ) cos x 1 – Transform x4  – De Sitter spherical world (M=cos x1)

17 Non stationary world R(x 4 )  0 M = M(x 4 ) But – suitable x 4 – M = 1

18  > 4c 2 /9A 2 R ( > 0 ) – Increases with t – Initial value, R = R 0 (>0) at t = t 0 R = 0, at t = t t = Time since creation of world Monotonic world of first kind

19 0 <  < 4c 2 /9A 2 Time since creation of world, t R increases with t Initial R = x 0 x 0 & x 0 are roots of equation: A-x+(  x 3 /3c 2 ) = 0 Monotonic world of second kind

20 -  <  < 0 R – periodic function of t World Period = t  Periodic World t   if   Small , approximate 

21 Possible universes of Friedmann Monotonic worlds –  > 4c 2 /9A 2 First kind – 0 <  < 4c 2 /9A 2 Second kind Periodic universe – -  <  < 0

22 Conclusions Insufficient data to conclude which world our universe is … Cosmological constant,  is undetermined … If  = 0, M = 5  M  – Then, world period = 10 billion yrs – But this only illustrates calculation

23 A Homogeneous universe of Constant Mass & Increasing Radius accounting for the Radial Velocity of Extra – Galactic Nebulae Abbe Georges Lemaître Annales de la Société scientifique de Bruxelles, A47, 49, 1927 English translation in MNRAS, 91, , 1931

24 Summary Dilemma between de Sitter & Einstein world models Intermediate solution – advantages of both R = R(t) – R(t)  as t  – Similar differential equation of R(t) as Friedmann

25 Summary cont’d.… Accounted the following: – Conservation of energy – Matter density – Radiation pressure Role in early stages of expansion of universe First idea: – Recession velocities of galaxies are results of expansion of universe – Universe expanding from initial singularity, the ‘primeval atom’

26 Intermediate model Solution intermediate to Einstein & De Sitter worlds – Both material content & explaining recession of galaxies Look for Einstein universe – Radius varying with time arbitrarily

27 Assumptions of model Universe ~ Sparsely dense gas Molecules ~ galaxies – Uniformly distributed – Density – uniform in space, time variable Ignore local condensation Internal stresses ~ Pressure – p = (2/3) K.E. – Negligible w.r.t energy of matter Radiation pressure of E.M. wave – Weak – Evenly distributed Keep p in general eqn For astronomical applications, p = 0

28 Field equations : conservation of energy Einstein field equations –  = Cosmological Constant (unknown) –  = Einstein Constant Total energy change + Work done by radiation pressure in the expanding universe = 0

29 Equations: Universe of constant mass  = Total density  = Matter density  =  - 3p Mass, M = V  = constant  = constant  = integration constant

30 Existing solutions De Sitter world  = 0  = 0 Einstein world  = 0 R = constant

31 Lemaître solution R 0 = Initial radius of universe (from which expanding) R = Lemaître distance scale at time t R E = Einstein distance scale at t For  = 0 &  = 2R 0 

32 Solution

33 Cosmological Redshift R 1, R 2 = Radius of Universe at times of emission & observation of light Apparent Doppler effect If nearby source, r = distance of source

34 Values Calculated Einstein radius of universe: by Hubble from mean density – R E = 2.7  pc If R 0 from radial velocities of galaxies R from – R 3 = R E 2 R 0 From data – R/R = 0.68  cm -1 R 0 /R = R = 0.215R E = 6  10 9 pc R 0 = 2.7  10 8 pc = 9  10 8 LY

35 Conclusions 1. Mass of universe – constant 2. Radius of universe – increases from R 0 (t = -  ) 3. Galaxies recede as effect of expansion of universe Advantage of both Einstein & de Sitter solutions

36 Possible universe of Lemaître Expanding space

37 Limitations & Further scopes 100  Mt. Wilson telescope range: – 5  10 7 pc = R / 200 – Doppler effect – 3000 km/s – Visible spectrum displaced to IR Why universe expands? Radiation pressure does work during expansion  expansion set up by radiation itself

38 On the relation between Expansion & mean density of universe Albert Einstein & Wilhelm de sitter ( Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences 18, 213 – 214, 1932)

39 Summary After Hubble discovered expansion of universe: Einstein & de Sitter withdrew  Expanding universe – without space curvature If  matter =  C = 3H 2 /(8  G) – Euclidean geometry – Flat, infinite universe Using H 0 ~ 10  H 0 today –  G (optically visible galaxies) ~  C  Flat space

40 Motivation Observational data for curvature – Mean density – Expansion  Universe – non static Can’t find curvature sign or value If can explain observation without curvature ??

41 Zero curvature   to explain finite mean density in static universe Dynamic universe – without  –  = 0 Line element: R = R(t) Neglect pressure (p) Field equation => 2 differential eqns

42 Solutions From observation – H - coefficient of expansion –  - mean density From – H = 500 km sec -1 Mpc -1 or, R B = 2  cm Get – R A = 1.63  cm –  = 4  g cm -3 – Coincide exactly with theoretical upper limit of density for Flat space

43 Confidence limit of solution H – depends on measured redshifts Density – depends on assumed masses of galaxies & distance scale Extragalactic distances – Uncertain H 2 /  or R A 2 /R B 2 ~  /M –  = Side of a cube containing 1 galaxy = 10 6 LY – M = average galaxy mass = 2  M  ~ close to Dr. Oort’s estimate of milky way mass

44 Conclusions  - higher limit – Correct magnitude order Possible to describe universe without curvature of 3-D space However, – curvature is determinable – More precise data Fix curvature sign Get curvature value

45 Present status of cosmological model Search for cosmological parameters determining dynamics of universe: – Hubble constant, H 0 –  TOT =  M +   +  K  M =  M /  C –Matter (visible+dark)   =  / 3H 0 2 –Vacuum energy  K = -k / R 0 2 H 0 2 –Curvature term –If flat k = 0

46 Current values H 0 – Hubble key project – WMAP H 0 = (71  3) km/s/Mpc  M – Cluster velocity dispersion – Weak gravitational lens effect  visible ~ 0.02 – 0.04  dark ~ 0.25  M ~ 0.3

47   – Energy density of vacuum – Discrepancy of > 120 orders of magnitude with theory –   ~ 0.7 SN Type Ia WMAP Age of universe: – t 0 = 13.7 G yr

48 SN Type Ia Giant star accreting onto white dwarf Standard candle – Compare observed luminosity with predicted Far off SN fainter than expected  Expansion of Universe is accelerating

49 Hubble diagram for SN type Ia

50 Microwave background fluctuations Brightest microwave background fluctuations (spots): 1 deg across Ground & balloon based experiments – Flat – 15 % accuracy WMAP – Measures basic parameters of Big Bang theory & geometry of universe – Flat – 2 % accuracy

51 CMB fluctuation result of balloon experiment Result best matches with Flat Space

52 WMAP

53 Convergence region of   -  M

54 WMAP result summary Light in WMAP picture from 379,000 years after Big Bang First stars ignited 200 million years after Big Bang Contents of Universe : – 4 % atoms, 23 % Cold Dark Matter, 73 % Dark Energy Data places new constraints on nature of dark energy (??) Fast moving neutrinos do not play any major role in evolution of structure of universe. They would have prevented the early clumping of gas in the universe, delaying the emergence of the first stars, in conflict with new WMAP data.

55 WMAP results H 0 = (71  3) km s -1 Mpc -1 (with a margin of error of about 5%) New evidence for Inflation (in polarized signal) For the theory that fits WMAP data, the Universe will expand forever. (The nature of the dark energy is still a mystery. If it changes with time, or if other unknown and unexpected things happen in the universe, this conclusion could change.)

56 Canonical cosmological parameters (from WMAP)  TOT = 1.02  0.02   = 0.73  0.04  M = 0.27  0.04  Baryon =  – n b (baryon density) = (2.5  0.1)  cm -3 t Universe = 13.7  0.2 Gyr t decoupling = (379  8) kyr t reionization = 180 (+220 – 80) Myr (95% CL) H 0 = 71 (+ 4 –3) km/s/Mpc

57 Possible kinds of universe

58 SDSS Result Universe made of – 5% atoms – 25% dark matter – 70% dark energy Neutrinos couldn't be a major constituent of the dark matter, putting the strongest constraints to date on their mass Data consistent with the detailed predictions of the inflation model

59 Galaxy map

60 Density fluctuations of universe

61 Fate of our Universe Flat universe … Infinite volume … Will expand & stop some day...
