## Abstract

We study the b-completion of the three Friedmann models of the Universe, having as models

for 3-space the sphere, the Euclidean space or the hyperbolic space. We show that in the first case

there is just one singularity, having the full completion as only neighborhood. In the other two cases

there is one essential singularity, which is the limit of all past causal geodesics; again, it has a single

neighborhood. This extends results by Bosshard [On the b-boundary of the closed Friendmann

Model, Commun. Math. Phys. 46 (1976) 263-2681 and Johnson [The bundle boundary in some

special cases, J. Math. Phys. 18 (5) (1977) 898-9021 on the closed Friedmann model.
