15 natural units: for photons, distance = time, momentum = wavenumber = energy = temperature but by convention they have different units which we have to keep track of much easier to use natural units, such that Leaves only one dimensional constant = Newton s constant so only unit = Planck unit

17 Temperaturetime relation: At su ciently high temperatures (k B T mc, the rest mass energy of the particle) we expect all types of elementary particles to become relativistic. If they interact with the photons they will share the same equilibrium temperature and so all types of relativistic particles will have a density proportional to T 4. We can write the density as = g e 30 (k B T ) 4 h 3 c 5 (58) where g e is a sum over the e ective number of degrees of freedom of particles. g is for photons alone, corresponding to the two di erent polarizations. All other relativistic bosons (with integer spin) counts one per degree of freedom, while for fermions (halfinteger spins, e.g., neutrinos) it is 7/8 per degree of freedom due to their Fermi statistics rather than BoseEinstein statistics [see Eq.(69)]. Remember, however that the energy density in a K = 0 radiation dominated model can also be written in terms of the expansion rate, and thus the time since the big bang: Thus we have a relation between temperature and time = 3H 8 G = 3 3 G(t t ) (59) t t = 1 H = v u t 3 3 G 30 h 3 c 5 g e 1 (k B T ), (60) which can be written as t t 1sec 1 p ge 1MeV.
