How quantum is the big bang?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Quantum back-reaction - The coupling of quantum variables such as fluctuations and correlations to expectation values - is crucial in any strong quantum regime. We sketch how this can be analyzed to obtain reliable information on the nature of bounces in loop quantum cosmology.
