I Particle horizon rewritten

  1. Jul 25, 2016 #1
    Here http://www.damtp.cam.ac.uk/user/db275/Cosmology/Lectures.pdf, I find on page 31 in (2.1.5)

    I assume that it is childish calculus that connects both sides of this equation. But still, can someone help me why the integral can be rewritten like that?

    thanks!

    It is a standard change of variables.

    ##\int f(a(t)) dt = \int f(a) (dt/da) da##
