Recently I have asked a question related to cosmology. I discovered that there is no tag. Are cosmology questions which are heavily math-based on-topic?

    $\begingroup$ The ODE tag you've applied already looks good to me, and the question is entirely mathematical so it's on topic. You might add a little more context to it though -- it would be worth indicating what level of mathematical knowledge you have so that answerers can pitch their answers better. Maybe add in where you would start looking for a solution, such as by calculating $V\prime$ yourself, and you should definitely indicate where $R$ comes from $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Thank you. Yes, these are good points, about to implement them... $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Just fyi if you happen to edit your question, a side effect will be that it is "bumped" it into the active question queue, which usually results in additional visibility. $\endgroup$

As long as it's heavily math-based, it's on topic. Cosmology questions just haven't been posted frequently enough to warrant a tag for them. should suffice.
