Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 835)

Abstract

To understand the strong quantum phase that is expected to be realized in a small and highly curved universe around the big bang, big bang we return to the solvable model solvable model of loop quantum cosmology developed in  Sect. 5.3.2.
