In the light of recent observations which point to an open universe (Omega(0) < 1), we construct an open singularity-free cosmological model by reconsidering a model originally constructed for a closed universe. Our model starts from a nonsingular state called prematter, governed by an inflationary equation of state P = (gamma(p) - 1)rho where gamma(p) (similar or equal to10(-3)) is a small positive parameter representing the initial vacuum dominance of the universe. Unlike the closed models universe cannot be initially static hence, starts with an initial expansion rate represented by the initial value of the Hubble constant H(0). Therefore, our model is a two-parameter universe model (gamma(p), H(0)). Comparing the predictions of this model for the present properties of the universe with the recent observational results, we argue that the model constructed in this work could be used as a realistic universe model.

An open inflationary model for dimensional reduction and its effects on the observable parameters of the universe
Karaca, K; Bayin, S (World Scientific Pub Co Pte Lt, 2005-04-30)
Assuming that higher dimensions existed in the early stages of the universe where the evolution was inflationary, we construct an open, singularity-free, spatially homogeneous and isotropic cosmological model to study the effects of dimensional reduction that may have taken place during the early stages of the universe. We consider dimensional reduction to take place in a stepwise manner and interpret each step as a phase transition. By imposing suitable boundary conditions we trace their effects on the pre...
A SINGULARITY-FREE COSMOLOGICAL MODEL WITH A CONFORMALLY COUPLED SCALAR FIELD
BAYIN, SS; COOPERSTOCK, FI; FARAONI, V (American Astronomical Society, 1994-06-20)
We explore the possibility of describing our universe with a singularity-free, closed, spatially homogeneous and isotropic cosmological model, using only general relativity and a suitable equation of state which produces an inflationary era. A phase transition to a radiation-dominated era occurs as a consequence of boundary conditions expressing the assumption that the temperature cannot exceed the Planck value. We find that over a broad range of initial conditions, the predicted value of the Hubble paramet...
A physical model for dimensional reduction and its effects on the observable parameters of the universe
Karaca, Koray; Bayın, Selçuk; Department of Physics (2005)
In this thesis, assuming that higher spatial dimensions existed only during the inflationary prematter phases of the universe, we construct a (1+D)-dimensional (D>3), nonsingular, homogeneous and isotropic Friedmann model for dimensional reduction. In this model, dimensional reduction occurs in the form of a phase transition that follows from a purely thermodynamical consideration that the universe heats up during the inflationary prematter phases. When the temperature reaches its Planck value Tpl,D, which ...
A physical model for dimensional reduction and its effects on the observable parameters of the universe
Karaca, Koray; Bayin, Selcuk (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-04-01)
We construct a physical model to study the effects of dimensional reduction that might have taken place during the inflationary phase of the universe. The model we propose is a (1 + D)-dimensional (D > 3), nonsingular, spatially homogeneous and isotropic Friedmann model. We consider dimensional reduction to take place in a stepwise manner and interpret each step as a phase transition. Independent of the details of the process of dimensional reduction, we impose suitable boundary conditions across the transi...
A model for the computation of quantum billiards with arbitrary shapes
Erhan, Inci M.; Taşeli, Hasan (Elsevier BV, 2006-10-01)
An expansion method for the stationary Schrodinger equation of a three-dimensional quantum billiard system whose boundary is defined by an arbitrary analytic function is introduced. The method is based on a coordinate transformation and an expansion in spherical harmonics. The effectiveness is verified and confirmed by a numerical example, which is a billiard system depending on a parameter.
