Using the Harnson-Zel dovich energy-density fluctuation spectrum predicted by the inflationary cosmology, we com-
pute multipole moments of the cosmic blackbody temperature. Our results are independent of the details of non-linear
galactic evoluhon
The inflationary cosmology [1] makes a prediction
for the spectrum of energy-density fluctuations in the
early universe [2]. The result is the scale-invariant
Harrison Zel'dovich spectrum [3] : fluctuations of
wavelength L at a tune t ~ Lie (the tune of horizon
crossing) are predicted to have an amplitude 6a which
is independent of L. The scale-invariant spectrum is a
model-independent prediction of inflation, while the
value of the constant eH depends on parameters of the
