RUDN astrophysicists prepare the second volume of the special issue 'The Future of Mathematical Cosmology' in the Proceedings of the British Academy of Sciences

Professors Spiros Kotsakis (Greece) and Alexander Efremov (Russia) from the Institute of Gravitation and Cosmology at the RUDN were the first Russian university editors invited by the British Academy of Sciences (Royal Society) to organize a special issue of ‘The future of mathematical cosmology’, the oldest scientific journal in the world, Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society.

The first volume of this special issue was published in March 2022. The second was published online more recently in July. Professor Kotsakis and Professor Efremov wrote the preface to both volumes of the special issue and also published in it the seminal review article "100 years of mathematical cosmology: Models, theories and problems, Parts A, B" in two parts ("100 years of mathematical cosmology: Models, theories and problems, Parts A, B").

At their invitation, leading international experts in theoretical physics and cosmology have contributed to the special issue by publishing 20 outstanding scientific articles in the journal on the structure and evolution of the universe.

The authors of the second edition include well-known physicists and mathematicians:

  • Robert Robert Brandberger (Switzerland-Canada; McGill University, Montreal)
  • Maurizio Gasperini (Italy, National Institute of Nuclear Physics, Bari)
  • Joat Sola Peracaula (Spain, University of Barcelona)

Abstract for the second volume of the special issue "The Future of Mathematical Cosmology":

What are the main achievements in theoretical cosmology over the last 100 years? What is its current state and prospects? What do we know about the Big Bang, dark energy, the future of the universe, the shape of space-time, the multiverse, and the quantum nature of space?

Mathematical cosmology was born in 1917, when Albert Einstein showed us how to construct entire universes according to the laws of physics. Since then, it has developed into a fascinating field, providing explanations for new data and observations. This theme issue is the first devoted exclusively to the complex nature of the universe and provides a clear blueprint for future developments in this fundamental area of modern science.

A printed version of the second volume of the special issue "The future of mathematical cosmology" will be published on 22 August. Information is available from the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, https://royalsocietypublishing.org/toc/rsta/2022/380/223.
