  • Ellis and Cosmology

    Ellis adopted a study to classify anisotropic solutions "the property of a material which allows it to change or assume different properties in different directions as opposed to isotropy" from Einstein's equations. This helped form the analysis of observables in cosmology. Ellis, George. “Issues in the Philosophy of Cosmology.” Arxiv, 2008, arxiv.org/pdf/astro-ph/0602280.pdf.
  • Cosmology in the eyes of the Doctor

    George Ellis's view on Cosmology is that there are three forms, Observational Cosmology, Physical Cosmology, and Astrophysical Cosmology. Observational Cosmology is the geometry of the observable universe and the matter that is in it by observing the radiation being put out by objects. Physical Cosmology is the the study of integration leading up to the Big Bang. And Astrophysical Cosmology is the study of what the result of the Big Bang has created.
