Book Description

Based on a hypothesis of the first instant of the Big Bang, this book traces the origin of the precursor nebulae of many astronomical objects, and provides initial conditions for a specific scenario of how cosmic structure forms and evolves.

The theory has a small number of parameters and generates many verifyable predictions, in particular regarding evolution, internal structure and composition of collapsed objects such as stars and planets. Implying a strong alternative to the dual paradigm of spatially uniform light-element primordial nucleosynthesis and stellar recycling of matter as the sole mechanism of heavy-element production, this book integrates astro-physical and planetary sciences with cosmology and galaxy formation in a coherent and evolutionary framework.
