@article{Contaldi2003SuppressingTL, title={Suppressing the lower multipoles in the CMB anisotropies}, author={Carlo R. Contaldi and Marco Peloso and Lev Kofman and Andrei Linde}, journal={Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics}, year={2003}, volume={2003}, pages={002-002} }

The Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) anisotropy power on the largest angular scales observed both by WMAP and COBE DMR appears to be lower than the one predicted by the standard model of cosmology with almost scale free primordial perturbations arising from a period of inflation. One can either interpret this as a manifestation of cosmic variance or as a physical effect that requires an explanation. We discuss various mechanisms that could be responsible for the suppression of such low l…
