Cosmic Microwave Background

The anisotropies of the CMB allow to probe the physics of the early Universe, in particular the hypothesis of inflation. For details see astro-ph/0202094.

For a comparison of predictions from slow-roll inflation with recent data from BOOMERanG (astro-ph/0004404) and MAXIMA-1 (astro-ph/0005123) see
