Highlights of an alternative cosmology

prof. Jayant Narlikar, Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics, Pune

This seminar will describe the main features of the Quasi-Steady State Cosmology authored by Fred Hoyle, Geoffrey Burbidge and this speaker. After a brief theoretical discussion of the model, some principal cosmological tests will be covered. These include the creation of light nuclei, Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMBR), dimming of distant supernovae and formation of large-scale structure. Two tests distinguishing it from standard cosmology will be proposed.
