Abstract

Recently substantial progress has been achieved in the theory of vacuum quantum effects in external gravitational field. Here we may mention Hawking’s discovery of the black holes quantum evaporation and the complete analysis of vacuum quantum effects in isotropic Universes. It was often pointed out that quantum theory may yield the resolution of one of the main problems of modern theoretical physics — the problem of gravitational singularities. Here we shall make an attempt to eliminate the cosmological singularity in the framework of the theory of quantum fields in curved space-time.
