The second feature (the smallness of the ripples) was perplexing. On the one hand, we knew there had to be some non-uniformity. (Why?) But the near uniformity of the background had a puzzling implication: the universe seemed to be more uniform than it sho
- problem that universe expanded rapidly and was too young for radiation to have reached equilibrium.
- Alan Guth said that the universe underwent a period of cosmic inflation.
-according to inflation an infinitesimal volume expanded at a fantastic rate to a huge volume.
-But happend so early in cosmic history that density was still high after the inflation period.
- then hubble expansion occured
- it resolves the temperature problem because at very early stage all material in the visible universe was much more closely packed than a simple backwards extrapolation of Hubble law. so equilibrium would be reached.
-inflationary period then spread the nearly uniform material over a large volume and then the Hubble expansion leaves us in a universe where the radiation from all regions has the same spectrum.
-On the very largest scales, many orders of magnitude larger than our entire observable universe, there could be significant temperature variations but started inside preinflationary volume which was in complete equilibrium
