Kantowski-Sachs cosmological models with constant deceleration parameter

  • M. S. Berman
Note Brevi


We solve a Kantowski-Sachs cosmological model with a constant deceleration parameter, by means of a convenient definition of the overall scale factor. This model is very simple, and as such, it deserves attention.
