Abstract We consider cosmological consequences of a conformal-invariant formulation of Einstein's General Relativity where instead of the scale factor of the spatial metrics in the action functional a massless scalar (dilaton) field occurs which scales all masses including the Planck mass. Instead of the expansion of the universe we obtain the Hoyle–Narlikar type of mass evolution, where the temperature history of the universe is replaced by the mass history. We show that this conformal… Expand
