Inflation in ω-field cosmoloty

  • Lee Wa Tsan
  • Yu Xin (Alfred Yu)


In this paper, we shall apply the ω-field theory as first proposed by Yu13 to cosmology. Under the assumption that the spacetime geometry of the Universe is described by the Robertson-Walker metric and the matter tensor-consists only of theω-field, the Universe is found to follow a de Sitter Expansion. The horizon and flatness problems may thus be explained in a simple and natural way.
