Hi, Are there any self contained models of the BB that are "front-runners" as explanations for the big bang? I understand that all models have some problems with them, but which models are currently taken most seriously among working cosmologists, and are there explanations of those models for the layman? Googling this stuff tends to lead me to explanations that are too vague, or too watered down, and usually don't contain the names of any specific models or have any kind of references. I'm hoping to get pointed in the right direction here to start reading up on this. Thanks.
