Cosmological application of the New General Relativity
The field equations of the New General Relativity NGR, constructed by Hayashi and Shirafuji (1979), have been applied to two geometric structures, given by Robertson (1932), in the domain of cosmology. In the first application a family of models, involving two of the parameters characterizing the field equations of the NGR, is obtained. In the second application the models obtained are found to involve one parameter only. The cosmological parameters in both applications are calculated and some cosmological problems are discussed in comparison with the corresponding results of other field theories . © 1995 Kluwer Academic Publishers.
