Abstract
We discuss a new test of inflation from the harmonic pattern of peaks in the cosmic microwave background radiation angular power spectrum. B y characterizing the features of alternate models and revealing signat ures essentially unique to inflation, we show that inflation could be validated by the next generation of experiments.
