CAAUL Seminario - A thermodynamic motivation for Dark Energy - 14 de Junho de 2012

It is rather natural to expect that the Universe -as any ordinary, macroscopic system- approaches  a state of maximum entropy in the long run. Realizing that the Einstein-de Sitter model cannot but dark energy dominated universes can, provided its equation of state falls in the range -1 < w < -2/3, we may conclude that the present era of cosmic accelerated expansion could be antecipated on solid thermodynamic grounds.
