A while back, I mentioned a paper by Haoxuan (Jeff) Zheng and me assessing whether some observations of anomalous patterns in the microwave background could be seen as evidence in favor of certain exotic cosmological models. The paper has now been accepted and will appear in Physical Review D in the coming months.
The referee for the paper had a number of quite apt criticisms of the original version we submitted. We addressed those criticisms, with the result that the final version of the paper is, I think, considerably better than the original. It’s nice when refereeing works out this way.
Congratulations to Jeff on an excellent piece of work!
