Applied Cosmography: A Pedagogical Review
by

Publisher: arXiv.org
Number of pages: 66

Description:
Based on the cosmological principle only, the method of describing the evolution of the Universe, called cosmography, is in fact a kinematics of cosmological expansion. The effectiveness of cosmography lies in the fact that it allows, based on the results of observations, to perform a rigid selection of models that do not contradict the cosmological principle.
