Inflation and the Higgs Scalar
This note makes a self-contained exposition of the basic facts of big bang cosmology as they relate to inflation. The fundamental problems with that model are then explored. A simple scalar model of inflation is evaluated which provides the solution of those problems and makes predictions which will soon be definitively tested. The possibility that the recently discovered fundamental Higgs scalar field drives inflation is explored. fantastically fine-tuned in order to successfully predict thedoi:10.2172/1172535 fatcat:7xmyflxiezgwxbidfjly6qhbtq
