Yang-Mills cosmology and inhomogeneous cosmological models

Project: PHD

Description

Development of a numerical code to integrate the non linear partial differential equations
of Einstein-Yang-Mills theory. The approach is based on constrained hamiltonian formulation.

Analysis of the gravitational stability of Yang-Mills fields (conformal invariance):
diffusion of gauge potentials, dilution of primeval Yang-Mills excitations during expansion.

Comparison between spatially flat, open and closed cosmologies.
