A Theory of the UniverseNeil TUROK

I will describe recent work with Latham Boyle which provides a framework for a new, minimal and predictive cosmology requiring no new particles beyond those already present in the standard model (including right handed neutrinos). We start from the observation that a realistic cosmological background, dominated by radiation at early ...
