Do physicists know what the expansion rate of the Universe was at the beginning of the matter dominated era?

  • $\begingroup$ Are you familiar with standard computations in cosmology involving e.g. the Friedmann equations? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I am familiar with the Friedman equations, but not calculating with them. I was just curious if there was a consensus regarding what the expansion rate was at the radiation/matter transition and matter/dark energy transition. $\endgroup$ Nov 20, 2014 at 21:02

    $\begingroup$ many books on cosmology and/or GR (e.g. Carroll's book on GR) discuss these matters. Have a look around (outside Wikipedia ;) ). $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ When you ask for the expansion rate, are you asking for the Hubble constant? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @BenCrowell: yes, the Hubble constant $\endgroup$ Nov 20, 2014 at 23:20
