Work physics consists of four chapters in which he talks about the significance and consequences of the expansion of the Universe and the theory of gravity. In the first he writes about how the expansion of the universe correlates with the theory of gravity Hoyle-Narlikar. The second part describes the perturbation of an expanding homogeneous and isotropic universe. A scientist comes to the conclusion, that the galaxy can appear due to small perturbations. In the third Chapter he considers the gravitational radiation in an expanding universe, in the final part the author explores the singularity in cosmological models.
