Ervin Goldfain


Recent observations suggest that the dynamics of the primordial Universe unfolds as complex evolution outside thermodynamic equilibrium. Here we argue that a viable description of the primordial Universe must be built from concepts relevant to complex dynamics such as Self-Organized Criticality and Multifractal Geometry. This approach brings fresh insights into the early genesis of Dark Matter and into some outstanding challenges of standard cosmology.
