Title: Pattern of perturbations from a coherent quantum inflationary horizon

Abstract

It is proposed that emergent, holographic quantum gravity leads to primordial curvature perturbations with a distinctive pattern of correlations that differs from the standard quantum theory of inflation. Holographic and causal constraints are used to formulate candidate directional symmetries of perturbations at large angular separation. It is suggested that these constraints might account in a unified way for some well known anomalies measured in CMB anisotropy. New exact symmetries are predicted, such as a vanishing temperature correlation function at 90 degrees angular separation.
