Collisionless radiation in closed cosmologies

  • Richard A. Matzner


An outline is given of some new results for collisionless radiation in Bianchi type IX cosmologies. An interesting new effect is displayed which distorts the pattern of any microwave temperature anisotropy from the quadrupole + dipole shape previously predicted in these models.
