The singularities in quantum cosmology
- 32 Downloads
A cosmological model is proposed, in which quantum effects lead to infinitely many terms nonlinear in curvature, and these terms lead to the following conclusion: the physical singularity (i.e., a state with infinite matter densityp) occurs int≃10−43 s, when the curvature is finite. An attempt is made to give physical interpretation of this model from the viewpoint of the ‘foam-like’ model of space-time.
