To obtain further estimates of several cosmological parameters, the recent BOOMERANG-98 (B98) and MAXIMA-1 cosmic microwave background (CMB) anisotropy data, as well as COBE DMR, were analyzed. The resulting data support the chief predictions of the inflation paradigm, that the geometry of the Universe is flat, and that the initial density perturbations are scale invariant, and with the corollary that the density of mass energy in the Universe is dominated by a form other than ordinary matter.
