The shape of the universe
Abstract:Paul Wesson shows how new techniques enable us to obtain accurate pictures of the Big Bang. Abstract
Diagrams that accurately show essential physical features of models can be a valuable aid to understanding. Seeing the consequences of changes to the models is a powerful way to understand relationships that are otherwise evident only from complex calculations. Here I present a new way to visualize the shape of the universe, in a mathematically accurate way, using plots that incorporate the relationships between the fourth and fifth dimensions deduced from membrane theory and induced-matter theory. Among other things, these plots show a new picture of the Big Bang.
