Description

After making a review on the possible scenarios for the early Universe, I will make a critical comparison among viable inflationary and bouncing models for the primordial Universe which I will describe, and discuss how the usual problems of the standard cosmological model are addressed by them in order to investigate if they can be distinguished by future observations.
