Quantum cosmology

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In theoretical physics, quantum cosmology is a field attempting to study the effect of quantum mechanics on the formation of the universe, or its early evolution, especially just after the Big Bang. Despite many attempts, such as the Wheeler-deWitt equation, and more recently loop quantum cosmology, the field remains a rather speculative branch of quantum gravity.

An important problem in this field is the origin of physical information in the universe.
