It has been suggested by Roukema and coworkers (hereafter R04) that the topology of the Universe as probed by the “matched circles” method using the first year release of the WMAP CMB data, might be that of the Poincare dodecahedral space (PDS) model. An excess in the correlation of the “identified circles” was reported by R04, for circles of angular radius of ~11° for a relative phase twist -36°, hinting that this could be due to a Clifford translation, if the hypothesized model were true. R04… Expand
