Complex Dynamics & the Age of the Universe

Ervin Goldfain


There are growing indications today that complex dynamics of far-from-equilibrium systems lies at the root of primordial cosmology and the ultraviolet (UV) sector of particle physics. We recently pointed out that dimensional fluctuations of the UV sector can reproduce the morphology of the cosmic web. Expanding on the same line of inquiry, this provisional report explores the link between the long-range temporal correlations of critical phenomena and primordial cosmology. Excluding systematic measurement errors, our report sheds new light on the tension in the age of the Universe sparked off by the latest observations of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).
