Lattice Holographic Cosmology

The cosmic microwave background (CMB) as imaged by the ESA Planck telescope in March 2013. The image shows temperature fluctuations in the earliest light released by the universe after the big bang.

One of the most widely accepted theories of modern cosmology is that shortly after the Big Bang (approximately 10^-32 seconds) , the universe underwent a period of rapid expansion called: Inflation. This phase of inflation has been used to explain a wide number of observations of the universe that were previously very troubling, such as it's flatness, isotropy, and structure formation.

The cosmic microwave background (CMB) is a result of the structure formation of the universe
