The Very Early Universe
In this short talk I would like to explain some exciting new developments taking place at the interface between particle physics and cosmology. This is a subject well suited to this kind of conference that consists of the audience from many different disciplines, but demands that the speaker explains in simple terms many concepts unfamiliar to most of the audience. I shall do my best, although success is not guaranteed.
