Spatially Homogeneous Models

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 291)


Many people have studied self-similar spatially homogeneous models, both as exact solutions and in the context of qualitative analyses (see WE [363] and Coley [91] and references therein). Exact spatially homogeneous solutions were first displayed in early papers [135]; however, it was not until after 1985 that many of them were recognized by Wainwright [358] and Rosquist and Jantzen [202, 309] as being selfsimilar. The complete set of self-similar orthogonal spatially homogeneous perfect fluid and vacuum solutions were given by Hsu and Wainwright [190] and they have also been reviewed in WE. Kantowski-Sachs models were studied by Collins [111].
