Alternative equation of state?

  • Thread starter odd-socks

I'm aware that the equation of state for a perfect fluid (when considering single fluid cosmology) is p=w*rho

However I've come across an equation of state of p=w*rho - xi*H, H being Hubble's parameter. However I cannot find an explanation of why you can put this in? Can anyone explain this to me please?

Thanks

It is irrelevant. You wish to inject it into the cosmological constant?
 
its to look at equations for rhodot (d rho/dt) and Hdot (dH/dt) so solve as a dynamical system for rho and H
