Anisotropic and Inhomogeneous Universe Models
In this chapter we will investigate anisotropic and inhomogeneous universe models. If we relax the cosmological principles a bit we can get new and interesting models of our universe. Actually, one of the main goals of cosmology today is to explain the isotropy and homogeneity the universe has and in order to explain a certain property of the universe one has to consider sufficiently generalmodels that need not have this property. In this chapter we will investigate the Bianchi type I universe model and the inhomogeneous Lemaître-Tolman-Bondi (LTB) universe models. The Bianchi type I model is the simplest of the spatially homogeneous models which allows for anisotropy and the LTB-models are inhomogeneous universe models with spherically symmetric three-space.
