written by Gary Felder
This paper introduces a theory known as inflation, a modification of the standard "big bang" model of the history of the universe. In an earlier paper, called "The Expanding Universe," the author, Gary Felder, reviewed the standard big bang model. This paper explains how inflation has changed our understanding of what occurred in the first fraction of a second of our universe and what implications those changes have for the universe today.
