A general and practical method for calculating cosmological distances


Abstract

This is a paper which tries to gather together all practical information regarding the definition and calculation of various distances in cosmology. The `classical' method is sketched (with references) and a new method, based on a differential equation derived by Rainer Kayser, is presented. Astronomy and Astrophysics, 318, 3, 680-686 (1997). There is also some FORTRAN code available which numerically solves the differential equation and does some related, also interesting, stuff as well.

The links below point to one file (in each case) containing the complete text, all figures and tables etc.

As are most of my publications this is available in two forms:

as well as, in this special case, everything (paper, routines and user's guide) at once
