GFT Condensates and Cosmology

This week I have been studying some papers and a seminar by Lorenzo Sindoni and Daniele Oriti on Spacetime as a Bose-Einstein Condensate. I have also been reading a great book ‘The Universe in a Helium Droplet’ by Volovik and a really good PhD Thesis, ‘Appearing Out of Nowhere: The Emergence of Spacetime in… 618 more words
