Dr. Ijjas’ new cyclic theory shows that the observed properties of the universe are best explained by replacing the “big bang” with a “big bounce” – a smooth transition from contraction to expansion. Combining diverse tools from mathematical and numerical relativity, astronomy, and high energy physics, she further showed that, driven by dark energy, there could be an infinite number of bounces in our past and future, radically changing our view of space, time and the cosmos.
