1990ApJ...358...47K BIG BANG NUCLEOSYNTHESIS: PREDICTIONS AND UNCERTAINTIES LAWRENCE M. KRAUSS AND PAUL ROMANELLI Center for Theoretical Physics, Sloane Laboratory, Yale University Received 1989 November 22; accepted 1990 January 22 ABSTRACT We present a detailed reexamination of primordial big-bang nucleosynthesis (BBN), concentrating on the data for the main nuclear reactions leading to the production of ^7^Li, ^3^He, and D, and on the neutron half-life, relevant for ^4^He production. The new values for reaction rates and uncertainties are then used as input in a Monte Carlo analysis of big bang nucleosynthesis of light elements. This allows us to attach confidence levels to the predictions of the standard BBN model. Subject headings: abundances - early universe - nucleosynthesis
