Big Bang nucleosynthesis and the baryonic content of the universe

Abstract

A review of the latest measurements of the primordial abundances of the light nuclei D, He, He and Li is given. We discuss in particular the primordial abundance Yp of He as measured in blue compact dwarf galaxies. We argue that the best measurements now give a “high” value of Yp along with a “low” value of D/H, and that the two independent measurements are… (More)
