Inhomogeneous Pre-Big Bang String Cosmology

Other literature type, Preprint English OPEN
Veneziano, Gabriele;

An inhomogeneous version of Pre--Big Bang cosmology emerges, within string theory, from quite generic initial conditions, provided they lie deeply inside the weak-coupling, low-curvature regime. Large-scale homogeneity, flatness, and isotropy appear naturally as late-ti... View more
