Known edition after edition for its state-of-the-science coverage, Universe breaks new ground in its Eighth Edition with added pedagogical support and pioneering media and supplements. It places the basics of astronomy and the process of science within the grasp of introductory students.
The Friedmann equations start with the simplifying assumption that the universe is spatially homogeneous and isotropic, i.e. the cosmological principle; empirically, this is justified on scales larger than ~100 Mpc. The cosmological principle implies that the metric of the universe must be of the form
Friedmann universe: Friedmann universe, model universe developed in 1922 by the Russian meteorologist and mathematician Aleksandr Friedmann (1888–1925). He believed that Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity required a theory of the universe in motion, as opposed to the static universe that scientists until

In particular, his solutions to Einstein’s field equations provided early evidence of an expanding universe, and the theoretical underpinnings for both the Big Bang and steady state models of the universe. Alexander (or Aleksandr) Alexandrovich Friedmann (or Friedman) was born on 16 June 1888 in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
Alexander Friedmann was born to the composer and ballet dancer Alexander Friedmann (who was a son of a baptized Jewish cantonist) and the pianist Ludmila Ignatievna Voyachek. Friedmann was baptized into the Russian Orthodox Church as an infant, and lived much of his life in Saint Petersburg.
An illustration of our cosmic history, from the Big Bang until the present, within the context of the expanding Universe. The first Friedmann equation describes all of these epochs, from inflation ...
