The joint UVW and UC Gravity Workshop kicks off today with a talk by Yongmin Cho from Korea entitled Restricted Gravity. David Wiltshire will then talk about his no DE cosmology, although this isn't clear from the title. Will report later.

No DE? Sounds great, can't wait to hear about it. We are still winning

Hi Louise

Yeah, he says the paper will go on the arxiv next week. He went through it in the talk. It's not a varying c model, but it covers an impressive amount of experimental stuff - WMAP, the Hubble bubble, various paradoxes etc. none of which can be explained by a DE theory. Maybe our friends at CV will read the paper.

Of course his model involves Mach's principle - viewing structure formation as an evolution of inhomogeneities, one must take into account the variance in clocks due to regions of different densities. The way I see it, this could be an effective varying c picture, because the meaning of 'c' is all about clocks after all. Anyway, he has worked it out in gory detail.
