Inhomogeneous Dark Fluid and Dark Matter, Leading to a Bounce Cosmology
AbstractThe purpose of this short review is to describe cosmological models with a linear inhomogeneous time-dependent equation of state (EoS) for dark energy, when dark fluid is coupled with dark matter. This may lead to a bounce cosmology. We consider equivalent descriptions in terms of the EoS parameters for an exponential, a power-law, or a double-exponential law for the scale factor a. Stability issues are discussed by considering small perturbations around the critical points for the bounce, in the early as well as in the late, universe. The latter part of the paper is concerned with dark energy coupled with dark matter in viscous fluid cosmology. We allow the bulk viscosity ζ = ζ(H, t) to be a function of the Hubble parameter and the time, and consider the Little Rip, the Pseudo Rip, and the bounce universe. Analytic expressions for characteristic properties of these cosmological models are obtained. View Full-Text
