Observational Evidence for Two Cosmological Predictions Made by Bit-String Physics
A decade ago bit-string physics predicted that the baryon/photon ratio at the time of nucleogenesis η =1 /256 4 and that the dark matter/baryonic matter ra- tio ΩDM /ΩB =1 2.7. Accepting that the

Big bang nucleosynthesis: An update
The current status of big bang nucleosynthesis is reviewed with an emphasis on the comparison between the observational determination of the light element abundances of D, 3He, 4He and 7Li and the
Big bang nucleosynthesis: Predictions and uncertainties
A detailed reexamination is made of primordial big-bang nucleosynthesis (BBN), concentrating on the data for the main nuclear reactions leading to the production of Li-7, He-3 and D, and on the
Primordial nucleosynthesis redux
The abundances of D, He-3, He-4, and Li-7, are presently recalculated within the framework of primordial nucleosynthesis in the standard hot big band model, in order to estimate the primordial
Refined big bang nucleosynthesis constraints on Omega B and N nu.
We include correlations between elemental abundances in a Monte Carlo statistical analysis of BBN predictions, which, along with updated reaction rates and an improved BBN code, lead to tightened
Experimental, computational, and observational analysis of primordial nucleosynthesis
We present a comprehensive evaluation of the current status of the standard theory of primordial nucleosynthesis. We determine the 12 nuclear reactions most important for the production of the light
Population II 6Li as a Probe of Nucleosynthesis and Stellar Structure and Evolution
We discuss the importance of Population II Li-6 as a diagnostic for models of primordial nucleosynthesis, cosmic-ray nucleosyntheses in the early Galaxy, and the structure and evolution of metal-poor
