Smart Formulations, Inc. (retired)

Dr. Michael Smith has decades of experience in computerised data analysis and has co-authored many articles on novel ideas in cosmology and fundamental physics. He recently developed a more general version of the Einstein field equation. He has analysed many variations of Λ cosmology using the FLRW model using supernovae Ia, II and gamma-ray burst data. In addition, he co-authored one of the first articles on polytropic cosmology published by IntechOpen. He is currently interested in the real meanings of the spacetime parameters, K and Ωk, of the FRW model. After many years working as a consultant for both the pharmaceutical and energy industries, he has recently retired to spend some of his time writing about the philosophy of cosmology.

Cosmology 2020 – The Current State offers the reader several fresh ideas on this topic. The first chapter presents an argument that, both in theory and in reality, one cannot ignore the microscopic world to concentrate on the Universe at only the galactic level. Then we have several chapters presenting new explanations for dark energy and dark matter based on reasonable physics at the atomic level. We cover the beginnings of artificial intelligence to model a cosmological phenomenon and a chapter pointing out that better results can be culled from SNe Ia and HII data when appropriate computerised analyses are applied. We think this book will add some new ideas to the libraries of many cosmologists and astrophysicists.
