Relic gravitational waves (RGWs) leave well-understood imprints on the anisotropies in the temperature and polarization of cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation. In the TT and TE information channels, which have been well observed by WMAP and Planck missions, RGWs compete with density perturbations mainly at low multipoles. It is dangerous to include high-multipole CMB data in the search for gravitational waves, as the spectral indices may not be constants. In this paper, we repeat our…

Constraints on the extensions to the base ΛCDM model from BICEP2, Planck and WMAP

Recently Background Imaging of Cosmic Extragalactic Polarization (B2) discovered the relic gravitational waves at 7.0σ confidence level. However, the other cosmic microwave background (CMB) data, for

Cosmological parameter fittings with the BICEP2 data

Combining the latest Planck, Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP), and baryon acoustic oscillation (BAO) data, we exploit the recent cosmic microwave background (CMB) B-mode power spectra data

Exploring bouncing cosmologies with cosmological surveys

From recent observational data two significant directions have been made in the field of theoretical cosmology recently. First, we are now able to make use of present observations, such as the Planck

Modified Lyth bound and implications of BICEP2 results

An absolutely minimal bound Δ ϕ / M Pl > r / 2 on the inflaton excursion for single-field inflationary models, which can be applied to non-slow-rollflationary models as well.

Compensation for large tensor modes with iso-curvature perturbations in CMB anisotropies

Recently, BICEP2 has reported the large tensor-to-scalar ratio r = 0.2+0.07−0.05 from the observation of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) B-mode at degree-scales. Since tensor modes induce not

Reconstructing the local potential of inflation with BICEP2 data

We locally reconstruct the inflationary potential by using the current constraints on r and ns from BICEP2 data. Assuming small and negligible αs, the inflationary potential is approximately linear

Topological inflation with large tensor-to-scalar ratio

BICEP2's detection on the primordial B-mode of CMB polarization suggests that inflation occurred around GUT scale, with the tensor-to-scalar ratio r≃0.2. Inspired by this discosvery, we study the

Nonsingular bouncing cosmologies in light of BICEP2

We confront various nonsingular bouncing cosmologies with the recently released BICEP2 data and investigate the observational constraints on their parameter space. In particular, within the context

The objective of the current work is to present the results of several numerical simulations of pulsatile blood flow in healthy and diseased arteries and compare with clinical expectations to ensure the simulations stay realistic and reliable for clinicians.
