ABSTRACT

This article is an application of the theory of discrete spaces to cosmology. Its conclusions are necessarily speculative. An interesting aspect is that it gives possible solutions to many pending problems within a unique framework. Let us cite a scenario for the Big-Bang that avoids any initial mathematical singularity, an interpretation of dark matter that does not involve any hadronic matter, a description of the formation of stellar and galactic black holes and, for the later, a description of quasars, their characteristics and their source of energy. Finally dark energy is also given an interpretation through modifications of the laws of gravity.
