Successful Predictions And Retrodictions Of The SSCP
The self-consistency and universality of the discrete self-similar scaling equations of the SSCP have been subjected to many tests. The following is a partial list of the successful predictions and retrodictions that have been achieved by the Self-Similar Cosmological Paradigm. Details are discussed in the “Selected
Papers” and “New Developments” sections of this website.
