# Long-wavelength gravitational waves and cosmic acceleration

@article{Schluessel2011LongwavelengthGW, title={Long-wavelength gravitational waves and cosmic acceleration}, author={Edmund Schluessel}, journal={arXiv: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology}, year={2011} }

Multiple observations of distant type Ia supernovae show the deceleration parameter of the universe is negative. The standard cosmological model states expansion should be slowing down.
A new theory is presented which explains cosmic acceleration only through the action of well-supported phenomena in the context of Einstein's general theory of
relativity through the use of the Bianchi type IX homogeneous,closed cosmology.
The evidence for acceleration is assessed and previously… Expand
