Heat Flow as Origin of Dark Energy
Abstract: We first introduce entropy according to University Physics textbooks, then, briefly discuss it, and then we prove by a general relativistic derivation that the Universe has entropy growth, like a white-hole, that it is R2-dependent, and that dark energy, represented by a cosmological “constant”, is caused by heat flow, and provides for entropy growth.
