Hi, I have been studying general relativity using Hobson's lately, particularly about the FRW universe.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know that for a matter universe with curvature,

[tex]H^2 = \left( \frac{\dot a}{a} \right)^2 = \frac{8\pi G}{3} \rho_m -\frac{kc^2}{a^2} [/tex]

Another expression I came across is also

[tex]1 = \Omega_m + \Omega_k[/tex]

I am thinking when the curvature dominates at late times what would the redshift be like.

When curvature dominates, the FRW equation is simply ##\left( \frac{\dot a}{a} \right)^2 = \frac{8\pi G}{3} \rho_m -\frac{kc^2}{a^2} ##.

I know that redshift is ##1+z = \frac{1}{a}##. How do I find redshift in terms of ##\Omega_k##?
