Cosmogenesis and collapse. (English) Zbl 1243.83084
Summary: Some possible benefits of dynamical collapse for a quantum theory of cosmogenesis are discussed. These are possible long waits before creation begins, creation of energy and space, and choice of a particular universe out of a superposition.

83F05 Relativistic cosmology
83D05 Relativistic gravitational theories other than Einstein’s, including asymmetric field theories
83C45 Quantization of the gravitational field
83C75 Space-time singularities, cosmic censorship, etc.
81T20 Quantum field theory on curved space or space-time backgrounds
