La materia no relativista (materia bariónica y materia oscura) es considerada en estos modelos como “polvo”, con una presión igual a cero, p = 0, por lo que su densidad de energía varía como ρm ∝ a−3 .
The quantum origins of the cosmological asymmetry
La densidad de energía de muchas partículas no relativistas es igual a su masa multiplicada por su densidad de número, el cual varía inversamente proporcional al volumen (a3 ), i.e. ρm ∝ a−3 ; por su parte, los fotones tienen una energía igual a Eγ = k B T y su longitud de onda se expresa como λγ = ¯hc/k B T .
The quantum origins of the cosmological asymmetry
Al considerar un plasma, su densidad de energía se puede expresar como su densidad de número (que varía como a−3 ) multiplicada por su temperatura (cuya dependencia temporal está dada por 1.49).
