Finite University

Recognition of a finite universe would create a seemingly unsolvable problem if boundaries of the universe: if the limit is, what is beyond that boundary? If there is something, it does not border the universe, and if nothing, then nothing can be both border? But this – pseudo, it does not occur if not to equate the concept of 'Limb' and 'limited'. First, who went just such a path, was Albert Einstein. In 1917 he created a hypothetical model in which the universe is finite but unbounded: this universe is placed in a curved, non-Euclidean space, which is a three-dimensional surface of a four-ball. Following the model of Einstein (she a quasi-stationary) model appeared W. De Sitter (Willem de Sitter), A. Friedman, a Catholic priest Jean Le-meter (Georges Lemaitre), in which the universe has expanded (or compressed, depending on parameters), such models continue to be created now.

Supporters of a finite universe believe that its diameter is about 1.53 m h1026 (distance to horizon of the universe 13.7 billion light-years). Again, remember that infinity can not be represented in computers as well as the memory of computers is limited. And because the finiteness of the universe – is another alternative to the dilemma 'Infinite or finite', which is consistent with the hypothesis that our universe – a model in the computer. That there is no limit to what the universe that exists 'in itself' and not modeled in the computer, it is necessary space to be non-Euclidean. However, as the curvature of space so far been found.
