G/N/ variability and primordial nucleosynthesis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


It is shown that, given the Schramm and Wagoner (1977) formation of the elements in the early universe, nonsingular Variable Mass Theory (VMT) cosmologies can be constructed which give the usual results for primordial nucleosynthesis calculations. The derivation of possible G(N) variability constraints over cosmic time, using Bekenstein's (1977) VMT, yields a variation of G(N) by no more than two or three orders of magnitude and shows the viability of nonsingular VMT models.
