I have a few questions ragerding this topic. Any help with either question is appreciated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is the metric expansion subject to relativistic effects? Will we measure the expansion of space around the Milky Way to go faster than the expansion around the Andromeda Galaxy?

How is the expansion related to the cosmological constant and Hubble's Law? Has anyone been able to derive an expression for the expansion?
