© 2016 by WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim We consider a universe with a bulk viscous cosmic fluid, in a flat Friedmann-Lemaitre-Robertson-Walker geometry. We derive the conditions for the existence of inflation, and those which at the same time prevent the occurrence of self-reproduction. Our theoretical model gives results which are in perfect agreement with the most recent data from the PLANCK surveyor. (Figure presented.).
