Uniform Expansion of a Gravitating Gas

  • A. N. Golubyatnikov


Within the framework of the Newtonian mechanics, we studied the possibility of the formation of a uniformly expanding gravitating gas following the previous compression of a cold rarefied medium (dust). The variable detonation energy release is taken into account. The formulation of the problem is associated with the modeling of the formation of the observable large-scale expansion of the Universe. At the same time, the results obtained can also be applied to the calculation of the gravitational collapse of smaller masses.
