Relativity and Cosmology


On the Scale Factor of the Universe and Redshift.

Authors: John Hunter

It is proposed that there has been a longstanding misunderstanding of the relationship between scale factor of the universe and redshift. It is shown how value of omega(matter) of one quarter of the true value, (hence the apparent dark energy phenomenon) can result from such a misconception. Predictions for the magnitudes of supernovae against redshift are made and found to be in good agreement with supernovae data, without dark energy.
