Cosmic tangle: Loop quantum cosmology and cmb anomalies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Loop quantum cosmology is a conflicted field in which exuberant claims of observability coexist with serious objections against the conceptual and physical viability of its current formulations. This contribution presents a non-technical case study of the recent claim that loop quantum cosmology might alleviate anomalies in the observations of the cosmic microwave background.
