The Friedmann Models and Optical Observations in Cosmology
Abstract
Introduction The Friedmann Model The cosmological principle and homogeneity Notions of distance  The metric The propagation of light A special relativistic model Dynamics and the evolution of R(τ) The dynamical equations and K Solution of the equations The cosmological parameters Ω and q Analytic expressions for the flux and angular diameter relations The cosmological parameter T Horizons, Causality, and other paradoxes Optical Observations The distance scale: The measurement of H_{0} Introduction: H_{0}^{1} as the dimensional  scale for the Universe Primary distance indicators Secondary distance indicators Results of the classical approach Direct (astrophysical) approaches The determination of q_{0} from the Hubble diagram and  angular diameters The Hubble diagram: Introduction The aperture correction Statistics Evolution of the stellar population Dynamical evolution Sample sizes and the effect of evolution: preliminary results Angular diameters Quasars Tests for Ω_{0} The "L x M/L" technique The local supercluster test Primordial nucleosynthesis, the Deuterium question, ρ_{0} Other methods Chronometry and the determination of T_{0} Summary and conclusions References
