Author: Don Lincoln
Publisher: New Jersey : World Scientific, ©2004.

Summary:
The Big Bang, the birth of the universe, was a singular event. All ofthe matter of the universe was concentrated at a single point, withtemperatures so high that even the familiar protons and neutrons ofatoms did not yet exist, but rather were replaced by a swirlingmaelstrom of energy, matter and antimatter. Exotic quarks and leptonsflickered briefly into existence, before merging back into the energysea.
