Abstract

It is found that an ensemble of random phase incoherent neutrinos can generate both the inhomogeneities and magnetic fields in the early universe. Hence, neutrinos can be considered as building blocks of the two most important astrophysical phenomena that are central to modern astroparticle physics and cosmology.
