Abstract:

Big Bang Nucleosynthesis (BBN) is the synthesis of the light nuclei, Deuterium (D or H-2), He-3, He-4 and Li-7 during the first few minutes of the universe. This review concentrates on recent improvements in the measurement of the primordial (after BBN, and prior to modification) abundances of these nuclei.
