Hello guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was reading some models about the topology and size of the universe (always a controversial topic), then a question came to my mind.

It is predicted that our universe will expand until it reaches heat death. Can a closed, finite universe also reach heat death and be described by the standard de Sitter cosmology?

Or in other words, can a closed, finite universe reproduce the standard flat lambda model which prioritizes dark energy as the source of accelerated expansion?

Thanks in advance
