Quantum Gravitational Effects During the Early Universe
Emre Onur Kahya
Abstract: I will summarize the "Standard Model" of cosmology in the light of recent observations. Then I will discuss the origin of everything in our universe: Quantum Fluctuations and analyze how one can understand the strength of these fluctuations in the early universe. Finally, I will look at a specific example: a conformally coupled scalar field interacting with gravity.
Reminder: Tea and cookies will be in the seminar room before the seminar.
