  • Abstract


    Inflation leads to omega=1  for the big bang universe, and which is indeed observed. However, two mysterious constituents – dark energy and dark matter – have to be present in the big bang universe for omega = 1. This paper utilizes propositions about the nature of dark energy and dark matter to trace their origins to the contents of the inflationary universe.
