View Resource SLAC-PUB-8779: Observational Evidence for Two Cosmological Predictions Made by Bit-String Physics

This pre-print from the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) covers string theory and dark matter, in particular the baryon/ photon ratio at the time of nucleogenesis. The theories presented are not in disagreement with actual cosmological data, including that from BOOMERANG. This pre-print may be downloaded for free in .pdf or .ps format.
