Superluminary Universe : A Possible Solution to the Initial Value Problem in Cosmology

  title={Superluminary Universe : A Possible Solution to the Initial Value Problem in Cosmology},
  author={John W. Moffat},
The spontaneous breaking of local Lorentz invariance in the early Universe, associated with a first order phase transition at a critical time tc, generates a large increase in the speed of light and a superluminary communication of information occurs, allowing all regions in the Universe to be causally connected. This solves the horizon problem, leads to a mechanism of monopole suppression in cosmology and can resolve the flatness problem. After the critical time tc, local Lorentz (and… CONTINUE READING
