Theme issue ‘The future of mathematical cosmology, Volume 1’ compiled and edited by Spiros Cotsakis and Alexander P. Yefremov

What are the main achievements in theoretical cosmology in the past 100 years? What is its present status and future prospects? What do we know about the big bang, dark energy, the future of the universe, the shape of spacetime, the multiverse, and the quantum nature of the cosmos? Mathematical cosmology was born in 1917 when Albert Einstein showed us how to build entire universes consistent with the laws of physics. Since then, it has developed into a fascinating field providing explanations for the new data and observations. This theme issue is the first devoted solely to the intricate nature of the universe, and provides a clear outline for future developments in this fundamental area of modern science.

This is the first part of a two-part issue. Part 2 published in July 2022 and can be viewed here.
