The 'ino' mass and the cellular largescale structure of the universe
Abstract
Within the theoretical framework of a Gamow cosmology with massive "inos", we show how the observed correlation functions between galaxies and between clusters of galaxies naturally lead to a "cellular" structure for the Universe. From the size of the "elementary cells" we derive constraints on the masses and chemical potentials of the cosmological "inos". We outline a procedure to estimate the "effective" average mass density of the Universe. We also predict the angular size of the inhomogeneities to be expected in the cosmological black body radiation as remnants of this cellular structure. A possible relationship between our model and a fractal structure is indicated.
