We show how estimates of parameters characterizing inflation-based theories of structure formation localized over the past year when large scale structure (LSS) information from galaxy and cluster surveys was combined with the rapidly developing cosmic microwave background (CMB) data, especially from the recent Boomerang and Maxima balloon experiments. All current CMB data plus a relatively weak prior probability on the Hubble constant, age and LSS points to little mean curvature (Omega_{tot… Expand

Discussion and Final Remarks
In this thesis we outlined an approach for computing consistent perturbations to the generalized gravitational field equations for physically meaningful theories. The approach requires a fieldExpand
