Possible mass limits for quantum double galaxies

  • M. Dersarkissian
Letter to the Editor


When cosmic quantum mechanics is applied to a double galaxy, the result is mass limits in order for the two galaxies to form a quantum binary system. For a non-relativistic theory (based on the Schrödinger wave equation), the mass limits are: (mg)max ≈1012M and (mg)min ≈1010M. One possible consequence appears to be a Newtonian gravitational constant that varies with cosmic time, with its value larger in the cosmic past.
