    Hi Mabs! Welcome to PF! :smile:

    looks like James Jeans' steady state theory of creation, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Jeans#Background
    Jeans, along with Arthur Eddington, is a founder of British cosmology. In 1928 Jeans was the first to conjecture a steady state cosmology based on a hypothesized continuous creation of matter in the universe.[6] This theory was ruled out when the 1965 discovery of the cosmic microwave background was widely interpreted as the tell-tale signature of the Big Bang.​

    try "Cosmology and Controversy: The Historical Development of Two Theories of the Universe" by Helge Kragh (limited preview available at http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=...JJQmQ0X&sig=eXvFvQMmwTtTXzToTK9jKS8VflU&hl=en) :wink:
