Constraints in the ωbNeff plane from Planck and Planck+BAO data (68% and 95% contours) compared to the predictions of BBN, given primordial element abundance measurements. We show the 68% and 95% confidence regions derived from 4He bounds compiled by Aver et al. (2013) and from deuterium bounds compiled by Cooke et al. (2014). In the CMB analysis, Neff is allowed to vary as an additional parameter to base ΛCDM, with YP fixed as a function of ωb and Neff, according to BBN predictions. These constraints assume no significant lepton asymmetry.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.

Initial download of the metrics may take a while.
