Evidence for bouncing evolution before inflation after BICEP2.

Abstract

The BICEP2 Collaboration reports a detection of primordial cosmic microwave background (CMB) B mode with a tensor-to-scalar ratio r = 0.20(-0.05)(+0.07) (68% C.L.). However, this result disagrees with the recent Planck limit r < 0.11 (95% C.L.) on constraining inflation models. In this Letter we consider an inflationary cosmology with a preceding… (More)
