Preview Abstract Abstract
(North Carolina State University, Nuclear Engineering Department)
By assuming the cosmological principle includes the Pauli exclusion principle (PEP) and that existence occurred post big bang within Planck time and length scales, a model for universal expansion can be argued. All Fermionic matter is forced by the PEP to make a quantum transition to minimally orthogonal states scaling with that predicted for a neutron star (NS). This predicts the minimum inflation time scale to be on the order of 1e-44 s. A coupling of primordial low mass neutrinos to have wavelengths comparable to or greater than the Hubble length is also postulated as a contributor to universal expansion. The model provides a mechanistic explanation for universal expansion using only physics from the standard model. This work supported in part under federal grant NRC-HQ-84-14-G-0059.
