On the Covariance of the Mixmaster

By Giovanni Imponente and Giovanni Montani

Abstract

We analyze the dynamics of the Mixmaster Universe on the base of a standard Arnowitt-Deser-Misner Hamiltonian approach showing how its asymptotic evolution to the cosmological singularity is isomorphic to a billiard on the Lobachevsky plane. The key result of our study consists in the temporary gauge invariance of the billiard representation, once provided the use of very general Misner-Chitrélike variables.
