Entropy of the Universe and Standard Cosmology

  • Marcelo Samuel Berman


By means of a variant approach to Standard Relativistic Cosmology, we hint that the entropy of the Universe is growing with t 3/2, where t stands for time-coordinate. Then, the absolute temperature obeys Standard t −1/2-dependence. We make contact with our previous paper (Berman, Int. J. Theor. Phys., 2009), in the context of a Machian Universe; but we also consider the dependencies of the scale-factor and energy density, with time, as in Standard treatments.
