    • Abstract


      The full version of the causal thermodynamics of non-equilibrium phenomena is discussed in the context of the flat Friedmann-Robertson-Walker cosmological model. Power law solutions for the scale factor are shown to exist. It is also shown that the temporal behaviour of the temperature depends on the functional dependence of the coefficient of bulk viscosity on density.
