**Applied Cosmography: A Pedagogical Review**

by Yu. L. Bolotin, et al.

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2018**Number of pages**: 66

**Description**:

Based on the cosmological principle only, the method of describing the evolution of the Universe, called cosmography, is in fact a kinematics of cosmological expansion. The effectiveness of cosmography lies in the fact that it allows, based on the results of observations, to perform a rigid selection of models that do not contradict the cosmological principle.
