Abstract: The matter content of the Universe is strongly inhomogeneous on small scales.Motivated by this fact, we consider a model of the Universe that has regularlyspaced discrete masses, rather than a continuous fluid. The optical propertiesof such space-times can differ considerably from the continuous fluid case,even if the -average- dynamics are the same. We show that these differenceshave consequences for cosmological parameter estimation, and that fitting torecent supernovae observations gives a correction to the inferred value ofOmega Lambda of ~10%.
